“SeaWorld”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

An amazing collection of marine life - fresh water and sea water in a clean environment. The place is sizeable although not massive with a seating area in couple of sections to watch marine life. It has amazing turtles and you can even touch turtles in the shallow pool. Just at the exit are restaurants, important for most visitors here :), guess its cultural and in the same complex - there is a theme park/ rides. Seaworld is recommended for a weekend half day trip and people often compare and often rate higher than Singapore Seaworld.

“Need Improvement”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

i came to seaworld Jakarta with bunch of a pre-schooler.

I notice that this place already have some improvement since i came to this place last time maybe about 5 years ago.
but there's not much change, and i see that the aquarium become smaller than last time.

sea world should be the largest aquarium in the country but how come it's so small?

you can just spend 30 mins less and you are done.

But the interesting thing is the shop now sell more accessories and they sell cute dolls at the store.

Still they need to have more improvement.

+ Not too very far from the city centre
+ The place is not too fancy but just nice for family trip
+ Many kind of sea animals with clear explanation of each animals
+ Nice experience walking on the horizontal travellator under the gigantic aquarium
+ On some animals booth, you can touch and feel them; starfishes and turtles
+ Interesting activities of animals feeding on specific hours also fun to watch
+ The souvenir shop is waiting on the outside door and on the left you go through the food stalls

Tips:
- Very crowdy during weekends and holiday season
