Liked it but not perfect

I loved bits of Sea World but other parts were a bit frustrating. I did enjoy it but preferred some of the other parks. When we arrived the line was massive but it seemed to... read more

Our entry to SeaWorld was included in our accommodation with the resort. We were disappointed to find the monorail was not running. Not that we're concerned about walking, it's just that the monorail provided a fantastic view of the area and SeaWorld. The place is looking very tired and under maintained. We could only see the roller coaster ride in... More

I loved bits of Sea World but other parts were a bit frustrating. I did enjoy it but preferred some of the other parks. When we arrived the line was massive but it seemed to just be due to their entry system. We had no issues with other parks. It wasn't school holidays and it was raining so shouldn't have... More

So many things to look at, but lots aimed at families with smaller children. There are only 2 rides at present which are "scary"- the staff are helpful and friendly - highly recommend an animal experience (we did a pat the dolphin - a beautiful experience). If staying at Sea World Resort a must buy is the privilege card which... More

We visited on a Sunday with our ten year old. Two rides worth queuing for: Jet ski and Storm. We enjoyed the penguin enclosure but would only recommend Sea World for families with young kids. Poor value for money.

Sea World use to be my favourite place to visit but oh my what has happened? The place is so old and dated it looks like a deserted theme park. The dolphins and seal show can't save this place. As someone else has written on here before the park needs to be shut down demolished and rebuilt. It also needs... More

Shark encounter was exceptional, beautiful sea life on display from viewing area. Dolphins stole the kids and parents hearts. Dora had the very young glued to her stage wanting more. The dad's were enthralled by the acrobatics of world champion jet ski riders. A great day out.

We have visited Sea World on previous trips and had always enjoyed it. It is a park that we feel suits young families which is what we had. It is not a park designed for thrill seekers wanting scary roller coasters. The rides are milder but are still enough to scare. Since our last visit, there have been additions in... More

Good to see dolphins and sea lion performing, engaging and informative, lots of games for kids and average food stalls, polar bears looked malnourished and suffering with the hot weather , they were lethargic and panting which was extremely sad to see; the research and rescue that the park does is a good initiative and for injured animals to live...

A full day to experience so get in early , the dolphin show was my favourite to see. Get a map and mark what you want to see and time so you don't miss out .

Very nice theme park to visit for families with kids! The best time to visit - working days with much less tourists in the park. Kids love that! To be close to friendly animals. Enjoy attractive rides and shows. Nice to came back and do it again!
