the issue hay have nothing to do with whales. it may have to do with a family of 4 spending $450 for a one day visit................Cost to much per day and gas prices are still to high no wants to drive long distance anymore . I know we find places closer to home anymore saves a lot of money.
Yes, Season Passes every OTHER year is great. You shouldn't do-it every year because the shows have a tendency to stay the same. After all, training animals to do new things must take the patience of some biblical figure named Job. I enjoy the season pass....and a couple of years later I buy one again.
