Penguin enclosure way to small
Polar bear bored and frustrated showing classic repetitive behaviour.
All animals held in artificial environments with little stimulation, enrichment or opportunity to hide from the public gaze, display unnatural behaviour patterns
No excuse for the inadequate habitats provided for your attractions in this day and age
Shame on you Sea World.

we went here hoping to have fun on the rides, only 1 ride available, others were broken or being reconstructed. Not good

Had a good time here. It was too windy but totally enjoyed the Dolphin Show and seeing the Polar Bear and Sharks.
Enjoyed some fun rides too. The Jet Ski Show was amazing too.
Its a must visit place if you are in Gold Coast.
Must for all the families and couples.

Sea World is a good day out with good shows to watch and underwater viewing of all the fish is great. Only drawback is renovations to rides as there are not many operating. The flume ride had a large queue and took about 1/2 hour to get on. Also all waterslides were not operating. This seems to be a problem now with the theme parks as I have been to two recently, that all attractions are not operating. It is worth a call before visiting parks to see what is not operating and then make your decision.
