Half a day at sea world

13 posts in this topic

Hi all. Last time I went to sea works I think I only spent 3 or 4 hours there. Going to fly into Gold Coast on March 20 (Thursday). Was thinking of going to sea world the day I fly in say at 12. Do you think this is enough time to see a few animals ride jet rescue and storm coaster and see the dolphin show?

So no real answers? It will be a week day outside school holidays so should be reasonably quiet. Just wanna do a couple of rides see a show and look at some penguins.

I'd say you could definitely fit it all in within 4 hours seeing as it's not during school holidays. You'd have to have a fairly good scheduled 4 hours though, no stuffing around..

If your flight arrives at 12 you won't be at sea world until at least one. Gates close at five. That gives you at least four hours to go around. It honestly depends on how long the lines are. In my experience, you can never really know what the lines will be like, so don't bet on them being short. I think you could get at least one ride on the storm coaster and jet rescue, and if you can manage your time well, you'll be able to fit in the dolphin show.

Friend of mine was boarding in Brisbane last night with Virgin at 8:15pm.. flight was delayed - he boarded at 3am... so it's not always Jetstar thats the problem!!!

At the end of the day, the biggest problem with doing a park the day you arrive is if anything goes wrong, you've lost the day to do that park... and if you're doing that, you probably don't have another day to fit it in - have a 'standby' day or a 'rain day' spare in your trip, and if something goes wrong with SW on day one, you can go back there on your 'rain day'...

For what it's worth, you probably can get a fair bit done in 4 hours...I mean, I've done Animal Kingdom in 2 hours so anything is possible.

SW doesn't tend to get long queues.

The only catch is you will probably miss a show or two due to the times they are on, but you probably knew that anyway.

To be honest the last time I visited I struggled to fill 4 hours at Seaworld, which included seeing the dolphin show, most animal exhibits and 5 laps on Jet Rescue. You should be fine.
