    Amazing Aquarium

    by DarleneCMF Updated Jul 9, 2006

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The aquarium at Ocen Park is huge!!! It' several stories deep. They actually designed the viewing to gradually take you from one floor to another. This is my favorite feature of Ocean Park - the manta rays, fishes, sharks, in all sizes and colors. Very cool!

    The aquarium is alrady worth the whole Ocean Park visit. :)

    Ocean Park and scary rides

    by funky_pigeon Written Oct 7, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This park features a full-fledged amusement park with the popular Dragon Roller Coaster, Ferris wheel and other thrills; a marine park with a Shark Aquarium; and a Chinese cultural village with temples, pagodas and traditional street displays.

    We started the day by catching the cable car that runs from the lowlands to the headland and provides amazing scenery of the South China Sea and from here on a clear day you can actually see China. You can get a better view from the tower, which revolves to give 360 views.

    The park is really well laid out and although is slightly difficult for those with pushchairs, was great for us. We went on the rollercoaster which was far too much fun for us, and we both vowed not to do any more rides. There was the atoll reef were you could walk around and view the fishes that would live on a reef - some of them were huge and if we had seen anything like that in the Maldives would have jumped out of the sea and run back to land.

    The dolphin show was really good, and the weather was really hot, we though that the dolphins may get a suntan if they were out of the water for too long, there were also a couple of sea lions which were very entertaining.You can see one of the dolphins hitting the ball right up in the air.

    Other attractions was the butterfly farm, and then the main attraction is the 2 Giant Pandas, Jia Jia and An An, which are housed here all year round - we had never seen Pandas before.

    Ocean park opens from 10 am till 6 pm and extends to 12 midnight on the weekend (Fri, Sat, Sun). The admission price is HK$185 and children between (3-11) $93. This fee includes most of the attractions - except the skill games, the Grand Prix and Whiskers wild ride and any coin operated machines. So if you want to have a go at these rides bring some change. The big rides are all included like the rollercoaster and tower, log flume.

    Headland Rides

    by keeweechic Written Jun 12, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Rides include : The Dragon - Hong Kong's largest roller. The Flying Swing - swings you in chairs as high as 7 metres through a gyrating wave-like motion. The Eagle Ride - a gravity-defying swirl which leaves you screaming - for more.

    The Crazy Galleon - a pendulum boat which completely disorientates you. The Octopus - a gentle rock in gondolas at the end of the Octopus's three giant arms. Great Fun!!

    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.

    Escalators

    by Princess_Emily Written Apr 20, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    For those of you who like statistics, here are the stats on the Escalators at Ocean Park.
    Total Length: 225m, split into 4 sections, longest section is 63.5m, the total vertical rise is 115m @ 30°.
    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.

    The Longest Five Seconds Of My Life

    by Lensky Written Mar 25, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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!

    1. Ocean Park---it's just like...

    by lcy Written Feb 25, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    1. Ocean Park---it's just like a mini-Disneyland. Don't compare with Disneyland coz you should understand how big US is and how small HK is!
    2. Buddha status---although you may not believe in any religions, you can go to Lantau Island to see the biggest outdoor Buddha status in Asia.
    3. Tai O---after seeing the Buddha, you can just directly take a bus from there to Tai O. You can see the original life of people who live on the river. (village type,I love it!)
    4. Lan Kwai Fong---go to LKF at night time especially on Friday and Sat. If you miss your home country , you may easily meet someone who also come from your homeland. Chatting, drinking and dancing are the ways how people enjoy there.
    5. The Peak---Before going to LKF, just go to the Peak from Central by taking peak tram. You can't miss the nightview from the Peak. When you look at the night view there, you will realize how lucky you are! Even day view there, it's unbelievable. Trust me!

    You can park the car at the lowland Conservation Square, the main entrance with the parking fee $70 for the whole day. Try to visit the Giant Panda Habitat early in the morning. Two lovely pandas 'An An' and 'Jia Jia' are inhabited in a 2000 square metres indoor playground which involved $80 million investment. The playground is maintained in 20 degree Celsius and 50% moisture for their optimal living environment.
    Remember to get a seat to see the wonderful bird show at Amazing Birds Theatre at 1100. There are many bird species around the world to cheer us up like Parrots, Hamis Hawk, Eagle Owl and Starling Scarlet Ibis.
    Take the cable car to headland Marine Land. Enjoy the sealion feeding at Pacific Pier at 1315. After that, visit the most beautiful aquarium Atoll Reef with over 4000 tropical fishes there. Also, don't miss the Shark Aquarium. Enjoy the fantastic marine show at Ocean Theatre at 1630. Have the breathtaking view of South China Sea on top of Ocean Sky-scraper Tower in 72 metres height, the tallest in Asia.

    Aged but still a crowd puller

    by genie47 Updated Mar 21, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    Visiting Hongkong is not complete without going to Ocean Park especially if you are travelling with children.
    Everyone will surely enjoy the Park. There's a lot of different type of rides accordingly to your age.
    A lot of food kiosk are also available.The Cable Car ride is spectacular.
    I suggest you go there early coz it is always full of visitors specially during weekends.

    Cable Car

    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.

    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.
