Sea World Theme Park, Main Beach

3.1
#2 of 81 in Theme Parks in Australia
Theme Park Water / Amusement Park
Not to be confused with the SeaWorld chain in the United States, Australia's Sea World Theme Park offers a mix of massive marine animal exhibits, dazzling shows, and thrilling rides. See how dolphins care for their young at the Dolphin Nursery Pool, observe penguins on land and underwater at Penguin Encounter, and get up close with sharks at Shark Bay. Polar Bear Shores serves as Australia's only polar-bear exhibit, and Ray Reef contains over 100 rays for you to feed. The seal show has an engaging storyline with both seals and humans acting it out. The rides area includes both thrilling roller coasters such as Sea Viper and children's adventure areas like Beach Break Bay. Using our custom trip planner, Main Beach attractions like Sea World Theme Park can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Always very good, but much less than in 2004 and 2007, the show at water skiing was really great, more aquatic distraction, but disappointed for those who go for the 1st time, it's still very nice

  • We went on a relatively quiet day so access to all the exhibits and rides was fairly easy. We enjoyed the dolphins in particular who seem very happy. One was quite interactive with us, clicking away a...  more »
  • I visited Sea World at the end of June and had purchased an animal encounter to meet the dolphin. I have to say, I was very impressed with the encounter, and to make it even more special, I was the on...  more »

  • Good fun place! few too many seagulls and some of the tech could do with an upgrade for a bit more efficiency/smoothness. Gotta love the dolphins show -they've still got it! Awesome. Rides are good fun too.
  • Great fun for little & big kids. So much to see & touch. Love the up close animal experiences, seeing all the animals & rides. Shows are awesome but make sure your there early cause the seats fill fast. Same with parking, earlier the better. Best to go on a slightly overcast day especially with kids, it's not as busy and saves you from getting sun burnt. Definitely bring sunscreen on sunny days, water & food as it's a bit pricey. Make sure you wear comfy shoes as there's lots of walking & stroller for little ones. Strong message of conservation & education which is really cool. Check out the price difference online to at the door, it was $10 cheaper online but they gave us one free entry each ticket baught to any of the worlds for a month paying at the gate. So just give them a call.
  • Sea world is a bit of every other parks. It has something for everyone. A great full day out. Don't go if they forecast lightning as they shut down all the rides. We only got 3hrs b4 they shut every ride down. Its a good thing as its for our safety.
  • Great place. Got served by two young men they helped me make a choice by telling me about every meal and what they like. Ended up getting the chick rappa meal. Food and service was great
  • Closest Theme Park to where you are probably staying on the Gold Coast. Its a good park without being breathe-taking. It has a few good rides and a decent "show", but its not world beating. It will suit children ages 2 - 10 years old for most attractions. There is a swim with the dolphins experience which is a great way to spend the day. There is a smaller children theme park area - but its limited. There are some shows of popular characters like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. All in all you cant go wrong going here, you will leave satisfied but nothing more.
