As a single guy, don't know if I'd feel the same, but with my two-year-old, it was great. They've got a pretty cool dolphin show, a carnival-esque parade that my daughter just ~loved~, a huge ferris wheel and cable car at no extra cost, and an outstanding aquarium. Seriously - that aquarium is ~not~ to be missed! I heard Taiwanese complaining about the price, but compared to what you'd pay in the US and what their overhead must be, this place is a great value if you ask me.
Spent a day at Farglory Ocean Park. It closes at 5 pm. It has exhibition, aquariums, rides for children a few shows. The souvenir shops has some interesting things and food is easily available. There are local food, Asian food, fast food and pizza. The dolphine and sealion shows were great and well choreographed. Comparable if not better than the one at underworld world sentosa and singapore zoo, each lasting from 20 to 30 min. They also have one indoor show which presents dance, acrobat and stuns which was interesting and fun. The rides are not new and mostly are for children. There is one that is more exciting and prepared to get splashed. The only cons about the park is that it is built on a mountain and escalator is available for the first few level. There are some lifts but im not too sure if they are available at all levels. The flights of steps could be as high as the one at hollywood universal studio.
Just enough to fill one day if you watch all of the shows. It was clean and we'll run. The views were spectacular. Many rides suitable for young children (ours are 8,7 & 5). We were expecting crowds as we visited during the Chinese New Year holiday, but the lines were very short.
We had a blast there with our kids 3 and 5. Even my parents enjoyed themselves. We were there from 930 til 5pm and time passed so quickly when you are having fun. It was entertaining and also eduacational. We watched the dolphin and sea lion performances, took some rides, attended a talk which told you everything you ever need to know about dolphins, and watched the feeding at the aquarium etc, none of which we required queuing!!! The best part of this theme park is the spectacular scenery which we did all these. Facing the ocean pacific in front, and backed by mountains in the backdrop, it was amazing...
I have been to various themeparks before including Disneyland at Hongkong. I would still recommend a visit to Farglory as its really a beautifully built park along the Pacific Ocean with a lot of fun rides and live shows to offer. If you are with kids, this is a must go in your itineary.The rides for adults are few only though there are fun shows. One must start early for this place which opens from 9am till 5pm.Can enjoy the cable car ride named "The Sky Lift" which takes you the Crytal castle section(highest section). Main attractions are the three shows - Fantastic Sea World performed by Russian dancers, Sealion show and Dolphin show - not to be missed !! the Sea Parade Carnival is again a must see parade of all Sea and Fantasy characters as the dancers and performers welcome kids to join and dance with them which adds to the fun element for the kids. Fun Rides include - Blackbeards Revenge, Pirate of El daro, The Love Wheel ( for then scenic view), Whallywhales Deep Adventure, The Bumper Boat. The Underwater Kingdom section is dedicated for younger kids with plenty of rides for them Me being a vegetarian was quite curious if i would find anything to eat there but to my surprise,there were various eating options available including Pizza, bakery, sandwiches, popcorns etc. Only you have to be ready for lot of walking around the place as it has seven sections and each show happens in a different section. so to catch up same and enjoy various rides in between, you have to keep a track with the show timings. I do recommend this themepark a visit if you want to do something fun !!
