Although they push all the good they do at the end the facilities for the animals are still small. Very little water stations, they push the "refill cups" but there is only one refil station out in the park, the others are at the start. Good to go whilst attractions with animal shows exist as this will be stopped one... More

I completely agree with many previous reviewers about the poor experience provided by this park recently. Many rides not running and not indicated as such on their website-we checked beforehand for this very reason. Very long queues (45min+) due to limited options. The day started badly when we waited over 30min just to enter. How's this for efficiency....we purchased tickets... More

Lots of fun to be had in Sea World for all ages. The dolphin show was magical and there are plenty of attractions to keep the young and old entertained. The rides are plenty of fun.

We took our two and five year old and the five year old had a blast. My wife and I had fairly low expectations but we had a fun time as well. The lines for the children's rides were reasonable considering it was peak season and the staff were friendly and conscientious. The kids loved the animal shows as well.... More

Returned to the Sea World again after a 10 year gap and was so disappointed. To start with I purchased tickets online so when I got there I could walk straight through but oh no stood in a line for an hour waiting to have our photo taken for the pass. This park used to be fantastic but today I... More

A great mix of animal education and entertainment with the thrill of rides. Loved the Dolphin show, glass bottom boats and walking through Nic World. Love Sponge Bob and was great to get photos with my fav characters. Highly recommended and be sure to allow the whole day to see everything.

Half the rides aren't running but they are still charging full price for tickets!! There should be some compensation for the lack of rides open or at the very least you should be made aware of that fact when booking tickets...

Plenty to do. From splash pools for the kids to the mighty slides or lazy rivers. Ice cream shop is a must, a medium size tub can be filled as high as you like and covered in sweets and is only $7.99, this can feed two greedy adults. Truly fun day all round

Sea world proved to be disappointing. The park needs work and the ride list needs to be improved. It's a good park but needs a lot of work to improve its offering to families. The food is woeful though and that aspect is in desperate need of improving. Was disappointed no log ride. Average park.
