May 25th will be the grand opening of Cirque Dreams Splashtastic at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom, the park has revealed. The show is currently previewing to great reviews and long lines of excited guests.
The show features "astounding physical prowess as the performers bring together a series of high-flying stunts and daring aerial acts above water. In the water, dolphins will emulate some of the artistry in their own way, as marine mammal trainers guide them through a series of show-stopping behaviors."
Cirque Dreams Splashtastic was created by Cirque Dreams founder Neil Goldberg specifically for Six Flags Discovery Kingdom. The cast of the show features dolphins alongside individuals from around the globe that were hand picked for the production.
“Our goal was to complement the personalities of the dolphins and performers through playfulness, extraordinary feats, synchronicity and unparalleled showmanship,” said Goldberg. “Cirque Dreams Splashtastic will be one of those unique and memorable entertainment attractions rarely experienced.”
Taking place over the water in the park's Dolphin Harbor Theater, Cirque Dreams Splashtastic is included in park admission and will run two shows each day until August 11, 2013.
