Fun Galore at Ocean Park

 Home grown Ocean Park stays top-of-the heap as one of Asia’s best theme park attractions!

 

It’s hard to believe that Ocean Park has entertained at least two generations of children and adults alike from all over the world since its opening 42 years ago in 1977. Notwithstanding witnessing newer or bigger theme parks or amusement parks cropping up all over Asia in recent years, Ocean Park Hong Kong has managed to reinvent and reinvigorate itself through the years, helping it to remain as one of Asia’s most iconic and beloved attractions.

 

Located in Wong Chuk Hang on the southern part of Hong Kong Island, Ocean Park’s 91.5 hectares facility offers over 80 attractions spread-out over two attraction areas – the Waterfront and the Summit, which are connected by cable cars and the Ocean Express, a funicular train system.

What makes Ocean Park so special and allows it to remain one of Hong Kong’s must-see destinations? For one, Ocean Park offers unmatched diversity. As a multi-purpose marine mammals and animal theme park, oceanarium and amusement park all rolled into one, it’s a perfect destination for children, young people and adults alike. Whether it’s connecting with animals, seeking thrilling rides, or just enjoying unadulterated fun, Ocean Park offers them all. Its location is also unique among theme parks. Perched atop a headland overlooking the South China Sea, Ocean Park’s Summit offers plenty of stunning vistas of seas, islands and the city. Finally, the park continues to reinvent itself with new attractions and features, pouring billions of investments over the years to keep the park up-to-date and in world-class shape. Its latest includes two new five-star hotels of which the Ocean Park Marriott is already opened, and the highly anticipated Water Park set to open soon. This ensures Ocean Park’s future remains bright.
