“Good for a family's full day outing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

This seems like a great place to take the family for a full day. There were lots and lots of water activities, animal shows, etc and plenty of places for getting lunch at midday. Unfortunately we only had a couple hours to enjoy a quick visit and no kids with us to enjoy watching the animals. It's a bit pricey so I would recommend, to get your money's worth, staying longer than 2 hours.

“Nice shows but limited rides”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

We were at the park at 11am on a weekday in early october. There are 2 sessions for most shows. The dolphin and sea lion shows were amazing and worth watching. However, we find the rides rather limited and there aren't many people in the park, it's not so exciting for the rides. Eg. For the Viking or even roller coaster, there can be instances when we were the only ones doing the rides.

It has a wonderful view of the ocean and my children (4 and 6) enjoyed the park very much. However, for the adults, it can be rather boring, apart from the shows.

“Just okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013 via mobile

My girlfriend and I visited the park today. We arrived about 30 minutes after opening and easily found a car park in the parking building. It was busy but not crowded (especially considering it is the first week of school summer vacation). Queues for rides were short. The longest was for the gondola, which is pointless as there are escalators going all the way to the top of the park. Food of all types is available everywhere. Rides include a small swinging pirate ship, bumper boats, small roller coaster, etc. The highlight of the park and the most popular attraction was the dolphin show. I'm not a fan of wild animals in captivity, but the crowd seemed to be enjoying it. Overall it was nothing special but something different to do. We spent about 4 hours there.

“An attraction worth visiting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

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.

“So so ocean park”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

The place is quite remote and there were very few visitors during our time there. Most of the attractions are quite old.
