Here we are: last stop. Eager faces press against the bus windows as we catch a glimpse of mighty escalators ascending to a vibrant-coloured mass on the platform. The entrance to Ocean Park.
Now easily accessible via the South Island line on the MTR, getting to Ocean Park has never been easier. One of the most popular attractions in Hong Kong, it is an amusement park with a total of 44 rides, including four roller coasters and two water rides. A mountain separates the park into two places of attraction, namely the Waterfront and the Summit. Visitors can take a spectacular cable car ride (currently suspended for approximately five months from January 2017) to either areas, and enjoy a breath-taking view of Lantau Island.
The park is further divided into a total of eight zones, each of which holds a unique feature. Polar Adventure, for example, is home to walruses, seals, Arctic foxes, and various types of penguins, while pandas, marine animals and avian animals reside in other zones. Dolphin shows, musical acts and culture shows will not be missed while wandering around the theme park.
Visitors usually end their stay by watching Symbio!, the world’s first ever 360° water screen show featuring two beautifully designed dragons clashing in the water as the story slowly unfolds. The combination of a warm atmosphere, intense sound effects and fantastic visuals, it is undoubtedly a night to remember…Just make sure you get a good view from start to finish!
