The accessibility to go to the Park throughout the day, when the time suited the little ones sleep time

We are a family with 13 years old son and 9 years old daughter. As seen on the website, there are only around 3 rides for older children, and 4 rides for very young children. Be prepare to pay extras for experiences such as Rays feeding, glass-bottom boat, behind the scene polar bears, and certainly if you want to touch... More

As soon as you arrive get a timetable to not miss any of the shows. They are all worth seeing and as there is usually 2 of each show on a day you need to plan. Take the suntan cream, a hat and enjoy

We had fun and my 3 year old son enjoyed himself but what I would say is it is looking a little tired and could do with some new rides and a few things refitted. If you have teenage kids I think they would get bored here.

I've had a first Monorail ride on October 12, 2013. I've watched SpongeBob ParadePants, plus, I saw Dolphins, SpongeBob, Squidward, Patrick, Sandy, Mr. Krabs, Plankton and Mrs. Puff. It was really, really fun!!!!

The park is in serious need of an overhall - paint desperately needed. Rides not all operating, and apparently this is a regular occurrence. Food overpriced and horrible. Staff uniforms need refreshing. Staff don't look happy at all. Poor animals.

Went here for the day with my sister and niece and we had a good day. We went to see two sessions - the dolphins and the sea lions. The presenters put across the message of protecting the oceans and the environment. We saw the fairy penguins outside and then went to see the indoor penguin exhibit and that was... More

We visited sea world many times in April 2015 while staying at sea world resort. Great experience, the shows are world class, Storm Coaster ride was great and food very nice and reasonably priced. They should return to the good old days and stop charging for the pool and water slide though. That part of the park is too expensive... More

Animals were amazing, best part about Sea World. We went off peak and were there for opening time. It took about 40 minutes to get in when the park opened, once we were in it was great, but it would be easy to spend most of the day queuing up for things like rides and food. I though for such...
