    Ocean Theatre is one of the top tourist attractions at the popular Ocean Park in Hong Kong Island. The open-air theatre is located at Marine Land at the Headland beside the bay. It has a beautiful and elegant pool large enough to exhibit several large whales swimmimg and performing at the same time.

    The Ocean Theatre is home to lively performances by dolphins, whales, sea lions and of course their trainers accompanied by musics. The scheduled Ocean Theatre show is a "must-see" attraction when you visit Ocean Park in Hong Kong! Pay particular attention to the show schedule when you are in Ocean Park!

    Ocean Park Escalator

    by hopang Updated Apr 16, 2009

    Ocean Park Escalator

    Ocean Park Escalator is the second longest outdoor escalator in the world with a total length of approximately 225 meters after the Central Mid Levels also in Hong Kong. It has a vertical climb of approximately 100 meters. The escalator at Central Mid Levels is approximately 800 meters long! Ocean Park escalator is covered all the way and consists of four escalators. The first escalator is said to be the longest with a total length of approximately 70 meters as depicted in our photo on the right.

    Visitors can walk up from the rear entrance to Ocean Park at Tai Shue Wan Road at the Lowland and passing several attractions such as the Bird Paradise, Middle Kingdom, Raging River, Mine Train and Pacific Pier until the Headland at the top. It is a good experience to ride on the second longest escalator in the world!

    Theme Park by the Sea! Great Cablecar Views!

    A show on Ocean Park, Hong Kong

    Many tourists who only stay for a short time in HK wonder if it is worthwhile to visit Ocean Park, one of the most famous theme parks in Asia which has been in operation for about 3 decades. Well, it really depends on your interests. I personally love anything about the Ocean, so I would include it in my itinerary if time permits.

    The park has evolved dramatically through the years. But what I remember the most is that this place is set so well beside the sea, and so offers great views of the ocean, especially during the watershows.

    There are still two sections connected by a 1.5 km panoramic cable car ride – the Headland and the Lowland. Headland has those thrill rides which includes a 62 meter freefall! Yikes…And you will also experience a great dolphin and sea lion show and visit the Shark and Atoll Reef Aquarium and the new Sea Jelly Spectacular.

    The Lowland, you will get to see the recent additions – a pair of giant Pandas and a huge goldfish extravaganza. Other attractions: Amazing Amazon, Butterfly House, Dinosaur – Now & Then, Whiskers’ Wild Ride and Kid’s World.

    If you are not in a rush and hungry, go ahead and try the Bayview Restaurant (eat while looking at sea jellies!) or just the Terrace Café which has an amazing seaview.

    The Longest Five Seconds Of My Life

    The Abyss turbo drop, one of the rides in Ocean Park literally lifted me off my seat. The 20 floor drop only lasts for five seconds but its the mosr thrilling and exhilirating ride of my life--step aside roller coasters coz they all look pale in comparison. Any fear of heights (which i have all my life) went out of the drain. Just scream all those fears out as you go down 185feet!

    Still one of Hong Kong's Top Ten attractions. It got more visitors than Disneyland Hong Kong.

    A general tip regarding a visit here. Start out in the morning. Take the bus 629 from Admiralty bus terminus to get there. Now the first stop is the Tai Shue Wan entrance to the park. I strongly suggest you alight here and enter the park.

    The reasons are simple. The main entrance brings in scores of tourists. The cable car station there has a queue that will drive you nuts.

    The next reason is to experience the long escalator rides up from this entrance. They are really long. I mean what's the point of riding an escalator down?

    After a long day at the park, exit from the main entrance. Don't have to take 629 back to Admiralty. You can cross the tour bus parking lot to the road to take bus number 6 or 260. I suggest 260 because it is an express bus. It has fewer stops. Both buses bring you back to Central.

    nice theme park

    by kenstan Written Jul 13, 2008

    This is like a sea world-6 flags put together.One part was rides rollercoasters etc the other side was a sea life park. Nice place for kids and adults too. If you take the tour bus to it they will stop at the jewerly store. They tell you if they have time but they always find time this was my 3rd time there.

    Amazing Birds Theatre is a great way to get up close to some exotic birds.
    Watch as their keepers put them through their paces, after the show you are allowed to take some close up photos standing beside your favorite foul.

    Ocean Park, as you will find out if you visit the web site or the park itself, is divided into two parts, half the park is on one side of a hill, the other half of the park on the other side of the hill. One way of getting to the other side of the park is with a free shuttle bus, other way is with the Cable Car.

    Ocean Missing in Action

    Ocean Park. Wow! Wait a minute! Where is the ocean in the park?

    Yes, we can see the South China Sea or ocean, but there's no ocean within the park.

    When we were there, there was the theatre area for the dolphin and sea lion performance with small areas for stingray, etc. It can be really called an Ocean Park unless you count the South China Sea as part of it.

    My view is that you can give this theme park a miss if you are short in time.

    Escalators at Ocean Park.

    For me it was just plain fun and a great convenience riding the escalators from Bird Paradise to the Raging River Ride, then on to the Mine Train Ride and finally stopping at Pacific Pier.
    I could not imagine having to walk or hike the hills to reach the other parts of the park, thank goodness for escalators.

    In the Middle Kingdom area of the park, just inside the Tai Shue Wan entrance way, during my visit I was able to have a close up encounter with Stingray's at the Invertebrates Touch Pool.

    This attraction, as far as I know, will only be offered in April 2008.
