“Absolute fun day”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

We had the whole day here.
Lots of activities and the dolphin show was great.
Loved the waterski show and loved all the fish exhibits.
Some attraction not to be missed whilst in Surfers.

“Go and see the Polar bears behind the scenes 10/10”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

We travelled from Perth in Western Australia just to go to Seaworld to do the Behind the Scene tour at Polar Bear Shores. We loved it...absolutely fantastic. We both left in awe of the work that is being down to help save the polar bears. Keep up the great work Seaworld.

“Dolphins and underwater aquarium make this place worth a visit.”
Reviewed February 18, 2013 via mobile

We had a great day out as a family, but have to say for most of the time we made our own fun. The waterpark and roller coaster was closed on the day we went and we were quite disappointed to see the Bermuda ride was gone to be replaced by a construction site. Another ride coming but still.. Not fun to look at when paying $89 entry. I expected more with the overall outlook, I haven't been for years and have to say, even though the park didnt have a lot going on- the dolphins and underwater aquarium were well worth it!! Our five year old daughter loved it! A word of advice though, if going with a family take snacks and water. Food and drinks are way too overpriced and ordinary. But definately a fun day out if you have a positive attitude and a love for the beauty of marine life, just amazing (:

“Needs work - at its nadir we hope”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

We were at Sea World on Saturday - they are rebuilding some attractions at present but it's looking fairly tired nowadays. It's been a fanily favourite of ours since 1972 and this was the worst that I remember it. Cable cars inoperable again (they were broken last time we came), it's now $5 to use the wateslide and kiddie pools, $12 for the pedal boats, food is just as you would expect, expensive, lacklustre service, greasy and you are trapped there having to fork out for very little.

The polar bear enclosure continues to be the most depressing animal enclosure I have seen in the developed world.

We hope that Sea World will come back to being the happy place it once was. We hope that this period is its nadir in history and not another step on the road to tourist trap hell.

“Fun for both adults and kids”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

The shark bay was amazing. Big park to entertain everyone. Wish ticket price were cheaper! Try to search online for price discounts and you could save a lot for big families.
