Hi Everyone!

My husband and I have been contemplating getting a World Pass for Seaworld, Movie World etc.

Our daughter will be turning 1 when we go, is she too young to enjoy these places?

Has anyone taken their young ones to these parks?

Any experiences you can share ?

Too young.

By all means, go if you think *you* will enjoy it. But best case scenario for your daughter is that she’ll sleep in the pram.

I would take her to the beach, though!

This, It is not a thing DH and I would enjoy but we have taken our son to other things as he tagged along because we wanted to go not for him as such

Yep, too young. I’d still go if you and your DH wanted to though.

Yes too young. Also if you go just as a couple and her, you'll have to go on rides on your own so that someone stays with her.

We took out 18 month when we took the older ones. There was plenty of rides we could take her on and she enjoyed the characters and the animals.

I’m not sure I would have taken her if she was the only but what she could be involved in, she did enjoy.

My little one enjoyed Sea World at that age, especially the large aquarium, touch pool and merry go round.

We took our eldest when he was 14mths old. It was limiting for us and he seemed to get as much joy as he would by going to the shops at home. he was in the pram mostly.

Honestly he got more joy out of playing on the beach and it was much more relaxing.

We took our two boys when they were 3yo. I would only bother with SeaWorld at 1yo.

If you're going because you're into theme parks, that'd be fine - even if they don't advertise it, they'll do parent swap on most rides now.

If you were going for the sake of the child, I probably wouldn't bother.

Mine loved the big aquarium at SeaWorld, but other than that i wouldn't buy a pass just to take them for that.

My 2 year old now enjoys going to the parks, but he is now big enough to go on some rides (nickelodeon world at SeaWorld, wiggles world at Dreamworld & a handful of the rides in the kids section at movieworld. The 4 year old - theme parks are heaven for him!

In saying that, paradise country is awesome for little kids - lots of animals to pat & all done in your own time, it's seriously under-advertised.

We waited until they were six and eight years old.
