my neighbor is going to CP and Woa next week...
she is wondering if WoA still has the animal shows and such, and if so, are they any good?
they have an eight-year-old who really isnt into riding so much and a 16 year-old who IS into riding.
any information i can pass on would be VERY much appreciated

Well, they got the Dolphin show, the got the sea-lion show, the got the orca show, and they got Tiger Island... that's 4 animal shows...
Sooo, to answer it bluntly, yes... they still got "true" animal shows on the Wildlife side.

The shows are very much worth seeing. Don't forget about the lumberjack show and the boat show. When you enter the park, you get a map and a show schedule. Plan your day with that. You can hit a few rides and then take the boat over to the wildlife side and see some shows and then hit more rides or the slides. They should be able to hit all the rides and see most if not all the shows in one day if they plan their day well. The shows last 15 or 20 minutes each. Get to the stadiums early if you want a seat in the splash zone.
Maybe they could purchase some little talkabout radios. That way their son can go one way and ride rides all day and they can take their daughter to the shows and then meet up later. Or just set up a meeting place and time.
I regret to inform you that Cedar Point's newest roller coaster, Top Thrill Dragster will not be operational today, or tomorrow or probably any day that you decide to visit our park. Please accept our apologies.

Okay I would recommend Tiger Island, Pirates 4D, Batman Stunt Show, Lumberjack Show, and maybe Shouka. I found the Sea Lion show very lame, especially since it was the same show in the park for a number of years. The Shouka Show is "okay" but it still isn't as enjoyable when Shamu and Sea World were here.

Personally, I think SFWOA is a 2 day park for families - especially if you want to see all or most of the shows. Our family visited several times when it was seaworld - we have only been once since SF bought the park. We took a couple of days and had the opportunity to see all of the shows with the exception of the stunt show (the lumberjack show was not running during late may either). My kids are 8,7 & 4 and they enjoyed the shows just as my wife and I did.
Make sure to let your neighbor know that shows and rides are on totally opposite ends of the park for the most part - plan on some type of system to stay seperate - 2 way radios as mentioned earlier are a great option. We use cell phones on a family plan. With a 16 yr old you could even send him on his own and just set up a time and place to re-group.
We definitely plan on returning to the park - hopefully later this season. I think very highly of SFWOA for some reason. Perhaps becuase of all the negative comments I had read over the years before visiting the park - therefore setting my expectations lower. The combination of world class rides; X-Flight, B:KF to name a couple, and a great kids area - second to only PKI perhaps, provides for a unexpectedly fun & entertaining visit.

Of course you could have gone to sixflags.com to see if they still have all the animal shows.

sixflags.com is not a place I'd send anybody for advice, most of their information is wrong, or hard to find in some ways.
