SeaWorld has been through a lot since the release of a documentary that exposed the truth behind marine mammal captivity. Blackfish was released in 2013 and caused SeaWorld to change its business practices surrounding Orcas; however, they were sued for allegedly downplaying the effect of Blackfish on their reporting to investors. 

They had to pay quite a bit of money but potentially got off without admitting to being guilty.  

Now, Seaworld is starting to earn money again after promoting free beer in Orlando and rides in California. They still have Orcas but they don't do shows nor do they profit off of the Orca reproduction business because it is now illegal. 

No Orca shows confirm that the best way to see Orcas is in the wild with a reputable Whale Watching outfit.
