"Blame Harry Potter for some of SeaWorld's problems. The company said the young wizard attraction at Universal Studios Florida is luring a lot of visitors away from SeaWorld. The fact that many school years were extended because of all the snow cancellations also had an impact."
I love the spin on this. haha. If you can read between the lines... this is really what this says..
"We are seeing declining revenue based on dwindling crowds. Our research seems to indicate a trend in the genreral public. One of growing awarenes to our slavery and torture"

its a mix. The Harry Potter park CLEARLY hurt Sea World Orlando but the Orca thing hurt Dan Diego. You are also spinning the reasoning.

They got a bad rap for the orcas, but SeaWorld does a lot of conservation work with other species. They aren't all bad.

I can't imagine being an animal of that size and being stuck in a tank that small
I remember going to seaworld as a kid. Back then they weren't as carefull about locking off the pools to the public between shows. I walked right in to the dolphin pool and stood at the edge with my arms hanging into the water. To my surprise a dolphin swam buy and gently brushed my hand. A second later he rolled on his side just out of reach and looked at me for a few seconds. Ever since I felt bad for those animals. They are clearly sentient beings fully aware that they are trapped. A few years ago I got talked into going there on a trip to disney. The best part of that visit was the cat show. Absolutely hysterically bad, just a bunch of cats running across the stage, and walking on planks elevated above the floor from one trap door to another. He whole time there was this discordant music laced with canned meows, purrs and growls, classic.
