Great day

The dolphin show should not be missed! There are not so many epic rides here compared to movie world but overall it was a fun day watching the animals especially the polar bear!

A bit run down and in need of a revamp. Was not as I remembered it from a few years back. Quite a few rides closed/inoperable. I would rush back

What's happened...Years & years ago we used to visit this park all the time. I'm now 29 & A LOT has changed! It's gone down hill dramatically, where's the love for the park. I was amazed of the condition of the park, hardly any rides open, Corkscrew has been removed, Bermuda Triangle Gone, Log Ride Gone, Pirate Ship Gone, Water... More

Brought an overseas visitor to the park today to show them close up to the marine life. Was an enjoyable experience, especially the dolphins and the penguin exhibit is good. The shows seem to be a slightly shorter than remembered, although this could be perception. The seal lion show was aimed particularly at the children so the commentary was a... More

Disclaimer...I do love SeaWorld and why we went in January, I know just insanity! First, more cover needed at Nickelodeon World. Lining up in direct GC sun is not cool nor safe. Cancer Council fail! 2nd, do we really need to see enclosed polar bears and penguins in what it feels like the hottest part of the world. Set them... More

Our family of 4 (kids 5 and 2) recently spent 5 days on the Gold Coast on a Groupon voucher which gave us accommodation at Sea World Resort and unlimited entry to Movie World, Wet’n’Wild, Sea World and Paradise Country. My wife and I had been to Sea World as part of our honeymoon about 8 years ago, plus other... More

Haven't been to SeaWorld for two years and decided to bring my kids. I remember how great it use to be. This time I was extremely disappointed. Gates are meant to open at 9:30am. We stood there waiting on the VIP line with passes till 9:40am. When gate opened took another 5minutes due to photos. Once we entered we went... More

Lots to do, but plan your day to take full advantage of everything. Take pram for little ones, and lots of snacks for the kids too, as it can get expensive. Cafeteria food is as expected, we prefer the dominoes pizza for the kids and Lagoon side tavern for adults.

Unfortunately this place has gone down hill, in a big way. Unless you have small children there is no real reason to go given most of the rides are all closed and the water park has been left to rot. You will definitely not get your monies worth. The deep creatures exhibition is a joke, nothing but a bunch of... More

We had a great day at Seaworld! The aquariums are well maintained! The dolphins and the jet ski trick show was amazing!!! We have been to seaward for 3 times and we still love it! We will definitely be back! :)
