We had a day here, 4 adults 3 teens. The end of the day everyone had spoken of their earlier visits from the past were a lot better. A bit more focus on the shows for those who have done the rides all before.

Loved seeing the marine life, especially the Dolphins and Polar Bears. The animal and jet stunt extreme shows were great. Really enjoyed meeting the SpongeBob characters and also meeting the jet stunt extreme professionals. Would definitely recommend to anyone both young or old.

We visited all major theme parks in our recent visit to Gold Coast and this is my favorite. Its design is beautiful, the shows are rather cool, there are interesting presentations and exhibitions, and there are even two thrill rides for adrenaline seekers. We spend a full day here (10:00-16:00) and enjoyed everything. A great day our for the family.

After renovations last year Sea World has greatly improved, especially with shade cover over the Food Plaza near the children's play area. Walkways are easier to get around and the monorail is working again. Love the dolphin show and my son's interaction with a dolphin ( worth the extra expense as it was enjoyable and informative). The animals are in... More

Travelled with young kids. Lots of different sealife and activities for kids. Awesome animal shows, a kids area and fun fast cool rides. A little pricey.

It's 2017, here we are at Seaworld and what on earth is a dinosaur exhibit doing in a park where the ocean is supposed to be the focus? Static fiberglass models with a smoke machines there and not much different in the Creatures of the Deep thing with more fiberglass models. Okay I'm being picky but this is suppose to... More

What a great place to take the family to and this means all ages Sea World has it all from exciting rides to the sea life displays. The life shows were the best with the seals and dolphins but our daughters highlight was swimming with the sharks. Easy to spend a day here so there's no need to rush it... More

We hummed and haaed about coming here but so glad we did. It was an awesome day out. There were hardly any crowds. The Fish Detectives Sea Lion show was brilliant and the Jet Stunt Extreme was great. The highlight of the day was being able to touch the stingrays as they swam past. Also Shark Bay was pretty cool... More

Everything is really well organised. Heaps to do for all ages. We all loved the dolphin show and the fish detectives show. The jet stunt extreme was thrilling also. Not many food options for vegetarians.

We managed to pick a rainy day to visit Sea World, which was good because there were no crowds, but not good because we didn't have umbrellas or rain jackets. If there's a possibility that it's going to rain, make sure you come prepared because it can be very cold and windy here. Also, the monorail wasn't working, so it... More
