Very disappointed with Sea World.

by Andy Brown
(Gold Coast)

My wife and I and 2 friends visiting from Sydney went to Sea World on Friday 21.1.11. We have not been for about 6 years and found it very disappointing.

First of all you can not take your own food in and the prices for food is over the top. I would hate to be feeding an average family and there is a lack of seating out of the sun.

Second my favourite ride the Bermuda Triangle is out of action. My favourite, 'the water show' has gone to pack. The water skiers have gone and the show now is so short. They have talant but only 2 performers?

The entry prices have not gone down but the level of entertainment and value for money have gone down.

We visited the polar bears a number of times, and each time they were sitting at their door trying to get in.

We did very much enjoy the seal show, and the 3D Happy Feet.

We walked away very disappointed with our day at Sea World, but I'm only a small voice.

Sea World No Food Rule
by: Annie

Andy, I am sorry to see your comments. I have to agree with you regarding the food rule - or should I say NO Food Allowed Rule. That was introduced a year or so ago to fall in line with Dreamworld.

The official line on that one was... theme parks all over the world do not let you take your own food in.

The food in all the theme parks in my opinion is expensive (captive audience) and not my usual choice. In Sea World we always try to get to the pie shop in the village area in the middle of the park.

On a positive note I am glad you enjoyed the seal show - it is really good, my family loves that one too.

Thank you for taking the time to write your experiences here. Many of your points are valid and it is always important to show all sides, I am sure you are no where near alone in your thoughts about the food - unfortunately I have no idea what can be done about that.

Cheers
Annie
