“Dinner with a view”
Reviewed 16 October 2013

A friend recommended that we went to the Shamu dinner, and Im so glad they did, its not well advertised on the website, and you really have to look to find it in the park, but its a fantastic evening.

The buffet was decent, plenty of choice and service at the table was very good.

The show itself was very informative and seeing Shamu up close like that was out of this world.

All in all an excellent value event at SeaWorld.

“Shamu up close!”
Reviewed 18 August 2013 via mobile

Buffet food was bad, unlimited wine & beer was a plus. Eating next to Shamu and getting a trainer talk/ mini show was what you pay for and well worth the cost! My 2.5 yr old is Shamu-obsessed and was glued to her seat through dinner. She had a blast! We sat right up against the glass.

“Rip off”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

Food was rubbish buffet, the show is like a lazy add on after they've done the main show, not worth your time or money.

“Superb value and a real treat for the family”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

We decided to book as it was BOGOF from Virgin. Even paying full price, it would have been worth the money.
Lovely meal with lots of different options and free wine/beer :)
Personal orca show after the main show had finished. They were feet away, behind the glass window. A very special and memorable day!! Recommended

“Food not brilliant but the show makes up for it”
Reviewed 3 July 2013

food is on low quality end of a buffet and I expected better, also queue was slow and not well designed (two queues both met at a single end point) BUT you book this to be near the whales and that didn't disappoint and worth it for that alone. they should charge an extra $10 a head and up the food quality.
