Coming from Sydney to do the theme parks, it was highly disappointing for us to find most of the rides closed on a Saturday! The best attractions we came for weren't available (no explanation was given) and so we had a pretty boring day getting more and more frustrated as we were discovering more closed gates. Of course we were... More

It was a bit disappointing to see that SeaWorld was underwhelming this time round. None of he rides were open, half of the attractions and sideshows weren't open. There was a show once or twice a day, not very frequently at all. The shark bay was underwhelming. On a positive the seal show was great. There were only two on... More

I love almost everything about this place. We enjoyed the dolphin show, waterski show, and some other for kids like dora, spongebob etc. It's good to bring your children here, so many animals including polar bear besides all those shows. There are some fun rides and kid rides too. we enjoyed ourselves much. Be aware of their show time so... More

Arrived at Sea World and went in the park. We started to walk and the time of our arrival at Sea World is about 10.30am. But, we walked until 11.50am or much more later and saw the resort. We walked to the other side and we realized that we were going back to the entrance! We then look at the... More

Today saturday 3 dec 2016 my family and I went to Seaworld (GC). That was an extremely disappointing experience as all the rides were closed and some of the shows didn't occur. This is a total rip off and should you consider going there make sure that the rides are actually open. When half of the park is not open... More

I'm a bit to grown up for this place I guess. Has a a lot on offer for the family, but not for two guys 30 and older I guess. I came here on a super pass visit and although it's not my cup of tea or that I will be returning, it's worth the visit for a younger crowd.

SeaWorld is a well tended, venue great food options. Otherwise great perfect family park. Our favourites were Polar Bear twin brothers who got into a slam bam fight - wacky do!!!! N.B. Didn't like that time share people are there to try to con you that you have won something, nothing wrong selling timeshare apartments but don't allow people to... More

Always a good place where you can take things at your own pace and sit and watch the dolphins or watch the various shows put on throughout the day from dolphins to water ski acts. Good for children with water slides (when warmer) or plenty of rides from the very young to adults

Overall 7/10 Ticket is having promo one theme park + 1 other theme park is AUD 89.90, but the second theme park of your choice must be use the next day. This Sea World environment is spacious. Highlight is SeaLion Detective Show & Dolphin Show. Must watch. Food is pricey, so pack some fruits or bread along if you come... More

The animals were taken good care of and the lessons shared about them are inspirational. The staff were friendly and the exhibits were well maintained. We'll definitely come back to feed the rays, watch the sea lion and dolphin shows, and see the cute polar bears again!
