Had to go more than once in the school holidays. The seal show was a must see twice and the dolphin show is amazing and we now have a budding dolphin trainer in the family. Didn't like the jet ski show found it boreing and not in keeping with the theme of the park.

My 8 yr old daughter and I had a wonderful time doing Snorkling in Shark Bay (not as dangerous as it sounds!!!)

bit old and run down, not much for the children under 9yrs to do.
the rides for the littlies ie merry go round looked like they were so old they could break at any minute.
the 3D sponge bob cartoon wasn't worth the wait

So much in such a small space. Thankfully it wasn't Qld school holidays and we were visiting from NZ so the crowds and lines weren't too bad. We loved the live animal shows and displays such as the dolphins, sealions, sharks, stingrays and penguins. Not so great for food and drink though.

My kids aged 3 and 1 had a great time at Sea World. We were tossing up between the 3 main amusement parks in the area and glad we chose this one as our kids really enjoyed the animal shows and the rides targeted for toddlers. Just get to the shows early as seats fill quickly. A couple of tips - If your kids are a sleep in the pram before a show starts they will let you in with a pram and you get pretty good seats as well, otherwise you have to leave your pram outside of the show area. If you have RACV insurance (or any online booking) book through them as its a little cheaper and you skip the big line to get in. I think this is the best amusement park for young kids, especially for a 1 year old who can not go on many rides. So if you have young kids (toddler age) this would be the safe option. The only downfall is the food is very expensive so bring plenty of snacks and water bottles for the kids.
