We took two 10 yr old grandsons for weekend and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The variety of activities for kids is incredible including age ranges. The hands on activities from touching the stingrays was a favourite , right up to the climbing fortress and battle boats with water cannons Watch out if you are a spectator, you can get wet... More

Of all the theme parks, this was by far the best for my 7yr old. He was chosen out of the audience to be 'dolphin trainer' which was the highlight of our trip for him. Def recommend.

Seaworld is not a zoo or aquarium or anything that cares about the wellbeing of animals, its a theme park that exploits animals for its own financial gain. Would not recommend to anyone.

We arrived late for our event with the dolphins ( it was Anzac Day, so they opened late). They immediately asked for those who were partaking in the event, and we went straight in. We hadn't bought our entry tickets, which they were more than happy to sort out after our event. We were shown where to find the entrance... More

Excellent theme park, lots of rides and sea animals to see. Had a wonderful time, would advise to bring your own food as it's expensive there. Two thums up.

We loved it! Went with an 18 month old while staying at the resort next door. So much to see and do. We were lucky it was a quiet day so no lines for the rides. Animals are so well looked after and the staff are super friendly. Food is pricey but no more the pub prices. You can sneak... More
