Opened in 1977 and located in Wong Chuk Hang and Nam Long Shan in the Southern District of Hong Kong, Ocean Park Hong Kong is a marine-life theme park featuring animal exhibits, thrill rides and shows.
For animal lovers who want a bit of a thrill, Ocean Park is a one-of-a-kind experience that offers everything from giant panda exhibits to rollicking roller coasters. It is far more than just a theme park, operating as a oceanarium, a marine mammal park, an amusement park, and so much more. With attractions ranging from a massive shark aquarium to The Dragon, Hong Kong’s longest roller coaster, the park succeeds in blending entertainment with education, focusing on spreading knowledge about conservation and environmental issues to all of its guests.
The park covers more than 870,000 square metres and it is the largest theme park in Asia. In the last few years the park steadily grow visitor numbers to 7.6 million in 2014, making it the world’s 13th most visited theme park,
Ocean Park is divided into two main parts, the Summit and the Waterfront with almost 50 rides to choose from. You can observe the mysterious creatures of the deep at the Sea Jelly Spectacular, ride the Raging River in Adventure Land, get up close and personal with manta rays, or conquer your fears on Hair Raiser, Hong Kong’s fastest rollercoaster!. But for most visitors the main attractions are Old Hong Kong that brings back to life the unique culture of Hong Kong in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s and Aqua City, a world-class marine themed area where you can watch Symbio, a multi-sensory show featuring the world’s first 360-degree water screen.
In 2015 opened Polar Adventure Ocean Park’s newest attraction that lets you explore the North and South poles from the exhilaration of a bob sled ride, to the wonder of meeting king penguins up close. You’ll also see long-tusked Pacific walruses, spotted seals, arctic foxes, snowy owls and other extraordinary animals. And when you need a break, Tuxedos Restaurant serves refreshments with a view of more than 70 penguins frolicking on the ice.
The park is huge so be prepared to some steep climbs. Food is very expensive, including fast food stalls. Ticket prices are reasonable and range from HK$ 193.00 (22€) children to HK$ 385.00 adults (more or less 44 €).
