This is not the Sea World you Expect

This is a Shopping center!! One of my colleague thought this was like the Sea World in the states and decided to plan a trip to make it out here. There is a huge ship that is also... read more

This is run down and in need of an upgrade. Struggles to cope with busy weekend crowds. The entry fee is 160 rmb. Extortionate. The habitats are small for the animals. And they have a polar bear in a shoe box with no stimulation. Jelly fish area was the only saving grace. Plus it's hard to get to. I took... More

This place looks a bit neglected, and one of only 3 large buildings was closed the day we went. There was barely anyone there (midday on a weekday) - not sure if it gets busier on weekends. I was able to find enough entertainment for my 18 month old, for about 2 hours, and that was a stretch. Don't miss... More

This is a Shopping center!! One of my colleague thought this was like the Sea World in the states and decided to plan a trip to make it out here. There is a huge ship that is also a restaurant and have random water shows. But, other then that it is a shopping center.

Not that big but ok if you are taking your kid which allows you to walk less and just enjoy the whole experience as a whole. If you pay attention to the animals in there and really try to enjoy their company, it's not a bad choice. Doesn't always have to be huge to win. Small means less crowded and... More

The park by taxi is 5 mint from Dameisha beach ( 12 rmb) & around half an hour from the Shenzhen central (80 rmb). Ticket price:150 adult,75 children(1.2-1.5 m height ) Compared to the price the service is very very low & the park is not maintained well. Do not go there & in substitute the OCT East park has...

I agreed with Daniel K. Don't go there, Save your money if you are from the West...It is so backwards..There were many " you tube moments". Dirty, Old, Nothing there to see.

I went to ocean world after fairly good reviews on tripadvisor. If you are from west you will not find this worth the trip. Dirty, and very low quality on the park. I would almost call it a fraud. After 20 min we escaped the park and promised our self that we never would come back and that we must... More
