Hong Kong Ocean Park combines the fun of a theme park with the experience of an aquarium for an excellent family day out. It’s one of Hong Kong’s best-loved hot spots, where the thrill-seekers can find roller coasters, animal-lovers get up close with creatures from the world over, and foodies can delight in all kinds of local and international delicacies. Plus, you can hop on a cable car and map out your next ride as you soar over the park or jump in the submarine simulator train to get around the park. Even the transport is as fun as the rides!
- Rides Galore
Beat the heat at Polar Blast, a snowscape-themed roller coaster that’s not just packed with thrills but also a stunning backdrop. If you’re into the thrills of cutting edge technology, strap on a headset and get ready for a white-knuckle ride in The Abyss – VR Space Voyage. Imagine flying into space, dodging asteroids and looking for treasure before plunging 20 floors in an exhilarating free fall – not for the faint of hearted! The park is also packed with great old favorites like the Crazy Galleon Pirate Ship, Raging River Log Flume, Rapids, and the Hair Raiser Coaster.
- Amazing Animals
There are plenty of chances to get up close with amazing animals at Ocean Park. From the arctic foxes to the penguins and the koalas, creatures from all over the globe are here. The stars of the park, two very cute and snuggly giant pandas Le Le and Ying Ying, await at the Great Panda Adventure, where you can learn about panda conservation and see them feed some red pandas.
For a more mystical experience, head to the Sea Jelly Spectacular, where more than 1,000 jellies are illuminated with high-tech lighting and special effects, surrounding you in a fluorescent maze. It’s a sight to behold!
- Getting Around the Park
Ocean Park is split into two main areas (The Summit and The Waterfront), so you’ll need to hop on one of the park’s handy modes of transport to go between them. Luckily, they’re just as fun as the attractions inside the park and have become special park fixtures in their own right. The Ocean Express is a train that simulates a ride in a submarine and takes you on an amazing ‘underwater’ journey, while the cable car takes you on an 8-minute journey over the hills with a stunning view over the ocean and the park below. It’s an unmissable part of the Ocean Park experience!
