We've been to Sea World once or twice before and it was great. The girls did a Dolphin Aqua Adventure which was juts fantastic. All the staff are lovely and helpful.

Have been to Seaworld many times over the years and love it but this visit was a real let down. Only giving it 3 stars for the dolphin and seal shoes which were great as always. Lost 2 stars for the disappointing aspects. My kids are 9 and 12 and there was virtually nothing for them apart from the shows.... More

we were glad we got a special rate and did not pay full price. i dare say this might be because they had rides that were not operating or were being renovated. it's the same as when i went many years ago as a kid. returning with my own children the shows are all along the same lines as before....

This is an entertaining place if you're staying nearby and want a theme park to visit that won't take a while to get to. When it comes to my experience with theme parks worldwide though, this is not good value for money.

I've been to Seaworld about four times over the last 15 years, and my latest experience was terrible - it will my last. This was the first time I went with both my young children - and I was disappointed at their disappointment as well. We went in April 2012 during the Easter break, so you would expect this to...

Went with my husband whilst on holidays on the gold coast. Was an easy and cheap bus ride from our hotel (route 750). We did have a fun day with highlights being ray feeding, dolphin show and jet ski ride. But roller coaster and sky lift were closed which was a major disappointment. Food prices about what I would expect... More

Greatly enjoyed our visit to Sea World. Impressive, professional set up that entertains well. Good shows for the family to enjoy. Even with big crowds at Easter it was still an enjoyable day out and I would recommend those staying on the Gold Coast to check it out.
