‘Dolphin Discovery’ ends run at SeaWorld

The Dolphin Discovery show has ended its 13-year-long run at SeaWorld in San Diego, Calif., park officials said.

The San Diego Union-Tribune said the show, which was performed several times a day, was closed Monday to make way for a new attraction called Blue Horizons, which features dolphins, birds and aerialists. It reportedly has been a hit at Florida's SeaWorld in Orlando since 2005 and will open in San Diego in May.

To prepare for the new attraction, SeaWorld is renovating its Dolphin Stadium, outfitting it with 700 extra seats and a new sound system, the newspaper said.
