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.

Travelled in January2017 with family of 4 with kids aged 5 and 7 years old. It was a very hot day and compared to the other parks there was not as much shaded areas to get some relief. The kids loved the enclosures. We missed the Seal show - pet detective to go on the rides with less people. The... More

Other than the smell of the Otters which is a very fishy smell, they are entertaining. Enjoyable day out for families with children of all ages going by the many families in attendance. The entertainment is funny with thd seals/sea lions. Easy access to areas. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

We have been to SeaWorld in the past and always enjoyed the rides . This time we were disappointed to find that most of the adult rides have been removed , the only adult ride left that was open was the Storm Coaster. The park is serviced by a Monorail but it is ridiculous the way it is run. It... More

My husband and I visited Sea World which was only a 5 minute walk from our hotel at Palazzo Versace. This theme park was our favourite of them all, this may be because we are more animal lovers and not really into the big scary rides that teenagers are these days. The Antartic Penguin Exhibit was fantastic as well as... More

The family deep water visit was a great experience. The staff were ok however seemed a little routine. It was fairly expensive for the 30 min in the water. I was disappointing with staff in the park. Told to use the lockers at the top end. Walked all the way to the top. Lockers not working. Asked a staff member... More

I went whale watching with my wife and it was a great experience! Totally recommended. We spotted around 7 whales, dolphins and turtle. Whales were very active and jumped a lot! Good option if in the right season.

SeaWorld has had major improvements over the last year with new eating area and shaded areas being built which are a big improvement. Not all rides were operational but we go for the animals which were lovely as always.
