“long lines and high prices”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

This resort seems a touch overpriced. The price one pays is high to begin with. Then, if you want food, drinks, and other items you pay thru the nose! We paid $5 for 5 fish to feed the sea lions. Lunch was over $25 for 2 people for hotdogs!
The shows were OK and my family enjoyed the roller coasters. However, the lines to see things were long. Thankfully the entire park is level.

“LOVE SEAWORLD”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

This park is a great all rounder - loads of shows loads of rides - loads of restaurants - Loads of fun! The shows are brilliant and the shamu show and the dolphins were my favourite. I know people moan about keeping the animals captive for our entertainment - but I loved watching them! They are so clever and intelligent! The rides are BRILIANT and perfect for thrill seekers! The aquarium was great and lots to see. You can also see and feed dolphins, they are playing and having fun - then you feed them fish! there is also a dolphin nursery with all the babies in - CUTE! They have manatee here which was good
because you don't get to see them in many places in the world! Y son and husband then went on a trip to swim with manatee (after seeing them at sea world!

“Great attraction”
Reviewed March 29, 2014

The park was so clean and easy to get to. This was our first trip there and we could not been any happier. Seeing how the animals were so cared for and taken care of. Having the kids being able to feed the stingrays was also a great experience. The little ones would have loved to reach and pet the dolphins as they swam up close but just could not reach them. These memories will be with them forever. So thankful for this trip.

“It's No Disney!”
Reviewed March 29, 2014 via mobile

Too many up charges, more gift shops than exhibits, not enough benches for weary grandparents, and a LONG walk from the parking lot! We missed touching the dolphins, Shamu, and the Clydesdales! On the plus side, the landscaping was beautiful and the food good! Look for discount tickets!

“Great attitude”
Reviewed March 29, 2014

Great respect for military. Best for everyone in all age groups. Tamed whales and their guardians performances are awesome. Never thought it would be this much of excitement for us.
