I think what jordansbull is suggesting is that it's really an individual decision about the value of such an activity.

According to the website - Get up-close access to SeaWorld's amazing orcas during this one-of-a-kind dining experience at Shamu Theater; Dine alongside the orcas in this behind-the-scenes experience; Talk with trainers as you get to know these amazing marine mammals; Enjoy an all-you-can-eat, chef-prepared buffet at a reserved table $36 per person

So no show per se, but talk to trainers.

We have not been to the one in San Antonio, but have been to the one in San Diego.

The lunch was the highlight of our day.

Food was good,

Watching Shamu is up close and personal.

Trainers explained the day and then let us ask all the questions one wanted.

its good to think of these in advance.....

It was absolutely amazing....and since its a smaller group, it was up close and personal with Shamu.

If you expect a performance, its not that. but if you want to watch them swimming, amazing.

Hopefully someone who has seen the show at San Antonio can tell more about that site

but for the show we saw it was great.

If it is something you like doing then most definitely do so.
