This special 22 minute show runs nightly through December 30th. Shamu Stadium will illuminate with bright lights and glowing candles as Shamu splashes to celebrate the holiday season.
The holiday show has some nice effects. Candles, a bouncy soundtrack that also slows down for some nice “dancing” by Shamu and the trainers.
A choir, in which local high-school students perform while holding candles, adds to the sense of holiday spectacular through their singing, clapping and firing up the crowd. They perform in the walkway between the upper and lower seating areas, facing the stage. A gospel singer performs up above the stage, and is later joined by the trainers.
