Several of the biggest theme parks in the United States are increasing their security measures because of recent mass shootings and terrorist attacks occurring, uh, everywhere, constantly. Disneyland, Universal Studios, Disney World, and SeaWorld will all start using metal detectors; Disney World is also banning the…
Let’s face it—with all of the controversy surrounding its parks, SeaWorld is a sinking ship. It’s time we revert back to textbooks and documentaries to learn about undersea life, and there are far better uses for the parks’ land anyway. I have an idea, and it’s the best idea: let’s turn all the SeaWorlds into race…
So there’s good SeaWorld news and bad SeaWorld news. The good SeaWorld news is that, after decades of criticism, the park will phase out its infamous Shamu show next year. The bad SeaWorld news is that the killer whales will just star in a new show.
One less entry on a resume that’s a thousand jobs long isn’t going to hurt her career, but a few days ago Mattel confirmed to the New York Post that it had stopped production of its SeaWorld-themed Barbie products as a result of concerns raised by environmental groups.
You're probably familiar with the many injustices going down at SeaWorld, including the park's (weak) attempts at trying to make them right. But now, new drone footage is here to remind you that there are other parks tormenting orcas in equally horrible–if not even sadder—ways. Say hello to Miami Seaquarium's Lolita,…
SeaWorld is back in the news in a big way this week. First, the park announced an ill-timed, controversial expansion. Then, someone finally claimed responsibility for a highly-visible protest against the park back in May which changed the freeway signage to "Sea World SUCKS."
SeaWorld hopes putting some waterproof lipstick on itself will make you love it again. The amusement park, which has been submerged in a PR nightmare ever since Blackfish came out last year, announced sweeping new design changes Friday in an effort to lure back fans.
There may be something darker brewing under the surface of the Finding Nemo sequel Finding Dory. Turns out the absolutely devastating orca documentary about the killer whale Tilikum (who killed three trainers) has altered the movie's ending.
A new documentary called Blackfish chronicles the captivity of Tilikum, a 12,000-pound orca whale involved in the deaths of three individuals. The film reveals the consequences of keeping whales in captivity, the effects it has on their psyches — and the ways in which these animals are lashing out.
Can a wild-captured orca whale be considered a "slave" under the guidelines of the U.S. Constitution, or be named as a plaintiff in a lawsuit arguing as much?
