SeaWorld Orlando: Offer lets kids eat for free at Dine With Shamu

A new SeaWorld Orlando offer allows kids to eat for free at Dine With Shamu, a behind-the-scenes attraction at the theme park.

For each paying adult, one child (ages 3-9) will eat for free under the offer, which is valid through Dec. 31, 2012.  The adult price is $49, while children usually eat for $24. (Children under age 3 eat for free, although a reservation is required for them.)

Regular admission to SeaWorld is required and not included in the deal.

The poolside buffet, in the shadow of Shamu Stadium, is accompanied by killer whales and their trainers in action.

The Dine With Shamu program was suspended after trainer Dawn Brancheau's death at the event in February 2010. It was reinstated this July.
