An Overview Of Ocean Park, Hong Kong

Ocean Park Hong Kong, commonly known as Ocean Park, is a theme park that is home to an oceanarium, animal theme park and amusement park. Situated at Wong Chuk Hang Road, Hong Kong, China, the impressive Ocean Park is one of the region’s premier tourist attractions. 

From viewing marine-themed exhibits to sitting a rollercoaster, there is so much to do in Ocean Park. So before you start booking your tickets, check out this extensive guide on what you can expect to see in Ocean Park, Hong Kong.

 

Getting To Ocean Park, Hong Kong

Ocean Park is located a distance away from the more populated areas of Hong Kong due to its size. Still, the magical experience that awaits you is worth the effort to get there. You could reach Ocean Park by car or public transport such as the MTR South Island Line, Citybus’s Ocean Park Express bus service, or public bus.

 

Ocean Park Ticket Prices

Ocean Park is an extremely popular theme park with thousands of visitors flocking to its gates daily. Therefore, the best decision you can make is to buy your admission tickets in advance. You can get your tickets at the nearest 7-Eleven store, book it on Ocean Park’s official website or approach the ticketing booths at bus terminals where you board an Ocean Park Express bus.

 

Purchase a General Admission Adult ticket for HK$498. You can also buy a child’s ticket for HK$249, applicable for young ones between the ages of 3 to 11.

 

Ocean FasTrack tickets

If you are willing to spend money for an enhanced theme park experience, get an Ocean FasTrack ticket. Ocean FasTrack tickets are an add-on service for Ocean Park guests. With the standard Ocean FasTrack ticket, you can enjoy priority access for specific designated rides and attractions, while the more expensive Ocean FasTrack tickets will allow for priority access to all rides and much more. Ocean FasTrack Tickets vary in costs from HK$280 to HK$520.

 

Hotel Accommodations

Hong Kong Ocean Park Marriott Hotel is located directly next to Ocean Park’s main entrance. You can find many beautiful and bright tropical fish in the lobby’s aquarium and rest in guest rooms which are decorated after Ocean Park’s attractions. In addition, hotel guests will have full access to the Lagoon Pool, Harnn Heritage Spa, Fitness Centre and Kids’ Corner.  

 

Do not wish to spend the night at Hong Kong Ocean Park Marriott Hotel? No worries! Thankfully, you can check in at one of their hotel partners instead. These hotels include reasonably priced Ocean Park packages with its hotel room rates. For example, a hotel called Crowne Plaza Hong Kong Causeway Bay is charging HK$4,800 + 10% service charge (including two-night accommodation with breakfast and two Ocean Park daytime adult admission tickets).

 

Ocean Park Attractions

Ocean Park comprises of two main attraction areas, the Waterfront and the Summit, which are separated by a mountain and connected by cable car and the Ocean Express funicular train. The Waterfront is subdivided into 3 attraction zones, while the Summit is subdivided into its 5 zones.

 

The Waterfront 

Aqua City

Amazing Asian Animals

Whiskers Harbour

 

The Summit

Marine World

Polar Adventure

Adventure Land

Thrill Mountain

The Rainforest

 

The Summit, as you can probably guess, is at the top of the mountain. So, visitors often pick one attraction area to explore first, before taking the cable car or the Ocean Express to explore the other. But where should you start? Which ones are you the most interested in? Let’s explore what you can find within the two main attraction areas and their subsequent attraction zones right now.

 

Quick tip for Animal-Lovers

Besides the standard animal shows, majority of the animal attractions you find in Ocean Park also offers visitors personal meet and greets with the animals from the exhibit. With such programs, you may touch, feed or take pictures with the animals under the watchful eye of its handlers. Book a day in advance before 5 pm online or at the main entrance ticketing office. You could try on-site application as well, but chances of getting a slot will be slimmer. Apply in person at Waterfront Gifts, Ricky’s Shack, Shutters, Rainforest Gift Shop and The Lodge 45-minutes before afternoon programme schedule if you are unable to book a day in advance.
