this trip was meant to be special treat for our granddaughter. Big fail by Seaworld, we were asked to get off the mono rail halfway through due to maintainence issues, rides were closed, shark bay closed, outrageous prices for food and fish feeders were broken. The whole place looked tired and old, and when you finally got a seat for... More

Although we had visited in the past we were looking forward to our visit and although the animals were fantastic especially the dolphins we found that we spent most of the day walking back and to for the various feeding times for our niece who wanted to see them all, it was a lovely day but a lot more commercialised...

I went to Seaworld on August 29 2014 - my third time in 15 years. It has got worst each time and is now truly terrible value for money. A local tourism operator apologized to me and described the place as an absolute disgrace. Village Roadshow own three of the Gold Coast theme parks and regularly shut down a third... More

Sea world is a good place to enjoy specially for kids, they will have loads of fun, you have animals shows, rides, helicopter ride etc. Maximum rides are for kids only, for adults you have just 2-3 rides.

We spent 5 nights at the Sea World Resort with our daughter, son-in-law and our 2 grandsons aged 6 and 8. The resort was great for the whole family and with access to Sea World right next door and the ability to come and go whenever we wanted to, it made scheduling and working around weather conditions so easy. Sea... More

This was a return visit after over 10yrs & the children are almost all young adults now plus we went out of season BUT this does not mean that almost all of the park should be closed for maintenance! We were there for probably less than an hour - plus most of that time was spent trying to get through... More

On arrival at the main entrance which was closed for repair, we were directed to another entrance. Where we were charged $140 for 2 seniors. (Partly our fault for not getting discount vouchers). We paid and entered and had our photo taken. We went in, and as we were hungry we purchased a pie each not realising there were other... More

I've been to a few aquariums around the world. And Sea World on the Gold Coast is the only one that genuinely feels like they give the animals a good home. It's still sad to see the Tiger Shark swimming around aimlessly with bent fins, and to think about intelligent creatures like dolphins being held captive. But most of the... More
