I'm a bit to grown up for this place I guess. Has a a lot on offer for the family, but not for two guys 30 and older I guess. I came here on a super pass visit and although it's not my cup of tea or that I will be returning, it's worth the visit for a younger crowd.

SeaWorld is a well tended, venue great food options. Otherwise great perfect family park. Our favourites were Polar Bear twin brothers who got into a slam bam fight - wacky do!!!! N.B. Didn't like that time share people are there to try to con you that you have won something, nothing wrong selling timeshare apartments but don't allow people to... More

Always a good place where you can take things at your own pace and sit and watch the dolphins or watch the various shows put on throughout the day from dolphins to water ski acts. Good for children with water slides (when warmer) or plenty of rides from the very young to adults

Overall 7/10 Ticket is having promo one theme park + 1 other theme park is AUD 89.90, but the second theme park of your choice must be use the next day. This Sea World environment is spacious. Highlight is SeaLion Detective Show & Dolphin Show. Must watch. Food is pricey, so pack some fruits or bread along if you come... More

The animals were taken good care of and the lessons shared about them are inspirational. The staff were friendly and the exhibits were well maintained. We'll definitely come back to feed the rays, watch the sea lion and dolphin shows, and see the cute polar bears again!

I used to absolutely love taking my kids here. This year was such a dissappointment. It is as if they are on a very tight budget, lack of staff around the place. They have changed the sea lion show (shorter and nowhere near as good). No food options. You can buy an all you can drink cup... but you can't... More

Sea World needs to spend some serious money on updating the place. It is insulting to locals and international tourists to have the place so run down. It's dirty and needs some tlc. There were few staff throughout the day, not once did we see a toilet or bathroom get cleaned. All but one ride was closed for maintenance -... More

when you are a big child at heart this a great day out, much better than I remembered from years ago, a little expensive but still very enjoyable

I went with a group of 5 women. We purchased tickets online for 7 days unlimited entry 3 park pass deal. It cost $99 for the pass. Attached to this review I have photographed the current walk in prices. The park felt deserted. Absolutely no atmosphere. No staff around except where people were paying extra to do the animal encounters.... More
