What are the best attractions and shows ?
Enter Ocean Park and find yourself at the bottom of the summit at “The Waterfront” where you can delve into a number of animal themed exhibitions including visiting the famous pandas from Sichuan, Le Le and Hu Hu, visit over 5000 fish of 400 different species at the enormous aquarium. Wander through an old Hong Kong street and let the kids indulge in some fun carnival games and classic rides.
From there, whisk yourselves up to the park’s summit by taking either the Cable Car or Ocean Park Express. The Cable Car takes you on a 10 minute journey up the incline and along the cliff side, while the the Ocean Park Express catapults you to the top in a matter of minutes. For amazing views, go for the Cable Car. If heights fill you with fear, opt for the submarine experience on the Express. Or even better, get one up and the other down!
At the summit you’ll find a number of different zones including Marine World, Polar Adventure, Thrill Mountain and Adventure Land.
