Still the same, but different. The underwater aquarium was just bloody amazing, what a wonderful experience and nearly as good as a dive. The penguin and chicks were special... read more

Unfortunately this place has gone down hill, in a big way. Unless you have small children there is no real reason to go given most of the rides are all closed and the water park has been left to rot. You will definitely not get your monies worth. The deep creatures exhibition is a joke, nothing but a bunch of... More

We had a great day at Seaworld! The aquariums are well maintained! The dolphins and the jet ski trick show was amazing!!! We have been to seaward for 3 times and we still love it! We will definitely be back! :)

On our way fr Byron to Noosa we decided to visit Sea World. The entrance is crazy expensive, we payed 340 dollar for a family with 2 small children !!! When we got in half the park was closed. No rollercoasters, no slides, no pirate bay, no dora... Sea World is misleading people, this was not communicated clearly. The ticket... More

Always a treat to visit sea world if you're a local. The park has been upgraded since our last visit over 12mths ago and everything is looking more fresh and new. LOVE the new main food pavilion - looks amazing. If you're traveling interstate to visit, make sure you check what's open/closed as certain times there can be a considerable... More

Apart from the food prices Sea World was a great place to spend a day. The animal shows were entertaining and informative, particularly the dolphins and the jet ski trick show was awesome. The main roller coaster ride was closed for maintenance but we wouldn't have gone on it away. We had a great time getting wet on the pirate... More

Have had a wonderful time at sea world in the past and was very excited to take my daughter and hubby who hadn't been. Was very disappointed and wish we just spent the second day at wet and wild again. All the good rides were gone, no more bermuda triangle! Have put in a sorry excuse for a roller-coaster instead...

We loved our day at Seaworld. My daughters enjoyed seeing all the animals and patting a stingray! My youngest loved the monorail, both riding on it and standing underneath as it passed overhead! We didn't see any shows, but we did go on a helicopter ride, which was the highlight! The kids rides were great and they spent hours running... More

This was our third visit over 12 years, and the place is feeling quite tired. There doesn't seem to be much new, with the exception of a couple of rides. The rides are short, but we were lucky as we visited outside of school holidays, so only waited 5-10 minutes for most rides. I would've been really unhappy if I'd... More

The park, shows and entertainment was fantastic and loved it but when there was only one ride open for the older generations it was a disappointment. The jet ski ride was great but when all other rides are closed and no warning of it, I started regret paying the $300 dollars for my family to go to the park, which... More
