Thoroughly enjoyed every second at Sea World. Although it was an extremely hot day, we could always find somewhere to cool down a bit. All the displays we saw were excellent, especially the dolphins. The monorail could do with some air conditioning, but other than that it was an excellent experience. Highlight of the day was a 10 minute helicopter... More

Really enjoyed a day out at Sea World on the Gold Coast. Some great animals including the penguin exhibit and underwater shark reef- both very impressive with stunning up close views. Also some good rides to get a balance between animal park and theme park. On the downsides, the polar bears looked far too hot and clearly didn't want to... More

We were in the locality and I Iove penguins so...we hopped on an air conditioned bus which stopped very near the entrance. We were surprised by the lack of heaving crowds which made for a pleasant day. We saw penguins from above and below the water. The Polar Bear looked bored to death sitting in a giant puddle in what... More

I visited Sea World in September 2014 with my family. I have 2 young boys age 10 & 12. Prior to our Sea World visit, we went to Movie World. In comparison with Sea World this place has lesser thrill rides. There are are about 3 interesting exciting rides for kids age 10 above. Majority of the rides in Sea... More

A couple of attractions were closed and the park is looking tired and dated. The dolphin experience is so expensive $600 for a small family and you only get 15 minutes. The dolphin show was lovely and The Storm rollercoaster was fun

Its certainly a fantastic place to visit the animals. It can be difficult to catch the Polar Bears playing however, as they like to nap a lot. But if you stay at the resort its easy to pop over to SeaWorld to see what's happening.

Whether you like the rides, animals, stunts, shows or the food. Fun for everyone! The amazing tricks by the dolphins and seals, jet ski stunts, the view from the monorail and skyway is incredible. The rides are fun, some with a side of water goodness. Even feeding the rays was unusually exciting. Save your money early and do an animal... More

Fun day out. Usual stuff for this kind of attraction. The jet ski stunts was the best bit, followed by the dolphins

Had a few hours spare on the Gold Coast and love polar bears. What else to do - but visit sea world. The rest of the place - fun rides, cheap food, tacky tee shirts etc you can take or leave - but do check out the Polar Bears
