Seven Seas opened on my birthday and my parents took me. I remember Newtka the killer whale and the shark tank. Not to be a downer, but now having seen the movie Blackfish, I wish I hadn't have gone and Newtka and those sharks were free.
I finally watched this the other day. I was underwhelmed with Sea World to begin with. Now I'm just very sad for the whole situation. They need to stop breeding and find a contained, oceanic enviro for them to roam freely till the last member passes. They certainly cannot be released into the wild nor should they remain contained in that awful enclosure.
