Ocean Park, Hong Kong Overview

Ocean Park Hong Kong, located in Wong Chuk Hang, is a marine and mammal park and the largest theme park in Asia. This park is a multi-segmented area with a marine mammal park, oceanarium, animal theme park and amusement park. Ocean Park is divided into 2 areas by a large mountain - The Summit( Headland) and The Waterfront (Lowland). However, one can travel between the two via a 1.5-kilometre long cable car system or the ‘Ocean Express Funicular Railway’.

The Summit and the Waterfront are further subdivided into a total of 8 zones - Marine World, Thrill Mountain, Adventure Land, Polar Adventure and the Rainforest in the Summit and Aqua City, Amazing Asian Animals and the Whiskers Harbour in the Waterfront. All these different zones have many rides, activities, games and even shows for visitors. Some of the most famous animals are An and Jia Jia, two giant pandas; nine Indo-pacific dolphins; and nine Chinese Sturgeons. Throughout the year, Ocean Park is host to several annual events such as on Halloween and the Christmas - New year period. The park is larger than the Disneyland, and thus is busier throughout the year, and is a huge favourite among kids and families.

Ocean Park Attractions

Amongst the two main areas of Ocean Park lie 8 different segmented zones with different sort of adventure on offer.

The Summit is the thrill and adrenaline hub of Ocean Park. It is home to some of the wildest rides in the park such as the Hair Raiser, Raging River, The Rapids and The Flash. The Polar Adventure in the Summit is a place where one can come across creatures such as penguins, seals, walruses and other inhabitants of North and South Pole. There are tickets available for Ocean Park Penguin Encounter, Ocean Park Seal Encounter and Ocean Park Dolphin Encounter which will take visitors on an adventure of their life. The Ocean Theatre in this arena is the place to catch a glimpse of dolphins and other sea life perform live! Another recommended adventure in the Summit is the Mine Train which is a Virtual Reality roller coaster which has its passengers wear VR headsets and is a unique experience.

The Waterfront lies near the entrance of the park and is home to some of the most interesting attractions of Ocean Park such as the Grand Aquarium and Old Hong Kong Street. The Grand Aquarium accommodates over 5,000 fishes which belong to over 400 different species while the Old Hong Kong Street overs travel through nostalgia and has on display Hong Kong in the era of the 50s and 70s.
The Waterfront is also home to the ever-so-adorable pandas including Le Le and Ying Ying who happen to be the stars amongst others. The Aqua-City in this arena hosts a water screen show ‘Symbio’ which provides a 7-D experience combined with blasts of water, fire and has a 360-degree screen which indeed is a sight to behold.

In order to enjoy the park to its fullest, it's recommended that visitors take a cable car or express train and start their journey from The Summit since the queue for the aforementioned are shorter during opening hours.
