The dolphin, seal and jet ski shows were the best part of this theme park. I was very excited to see the polar bears that are always advertised, and found them very disappointing. There was only one bear and he spent the entire time pacing back and forth between the different doors trying to get into where the other bears... More

Love the park but Disappointed because all the little kids ride were not working as they were upgrading which i understand they need to do but to have 5-6 rides shut not good when you take little kids. Shows were great will go again but will wait till all the rides are working again.

Love this park - every ride is a wet one - so much fun! Food is even great here, in two places so look around before you choose!

We loved everything at Seaworld. Mesmerised by the Sting Rays, enchanted by the underworld aquarium, terrific fun on the Viking ride, the dolphin show and our extraordinary experience swimming with a beautiful dolphin. All the Seaworld staff made us feel so welcome - service amazing.

Sea World rarely disappoints although not a great deal has changed in 15 years or so and there are some parts that are looking a bit tired. I always have mixed feelings visiting here, I love to see the amazing dolphins but also feel sorry for any animals in captivity. I thought the jet ski demonstration was a bit lame.... More

The brand 'sea world' to me suggested Disney land innovation and top line entertainment ... Quite honestly this place is struggling from start to finish... The educational centres with interactive displays were pitiful probably 20 yrs old... Yes you can feel a sea slug or pat a passing Ray but where is the innovation ? where's the new ideas? Big...

3 generations of family members aged 14-68 yrs spent a great day at SeaWorld. The dolphin show is not to be missed and the antics of the polar bears always a delight. We thought the new Creatures of the Deep was a little disappointing, considering the use of technology today, we thought they could do a lot more with the... More

Had a really smashing couple of visits here. My son loved the roller coaster ride. The dolphin show Is not to be missed. The ray feeding didn't happen in the afternoon which was shame.
