Amusement Aquarium
Feb 2021 • Family
This place was more an amusement park rather than an aquarium. There were some fish and other marine life, but it felt like there were more rides. Let's start with the positives. The park was located in a great area with an awesome view. There was a little something for everyone. If you wanted to see marine life, they had it. If you wanted to see pinnipeds, they had them. If you wanted rides (water rides, roller coasters, ferris wheel, etc), they had those. And they also had a few shows to entertain the kids. Now the negative. The park is old. The food options, although plentiful, were not good. All in all, not a bad place to visit, but I wouldn't drive out here just for the park. Unless you're close by.

Holiday in Farglory Ocean Park
Oct 2020
I went here with my family on last holiday. The fountain at the entrance and the elevator in front of the entrance are also lovely. The dolphins, sea lions, and seals here are very cute, and every trainer works very hard. The aquarium is also decorated beautifully. We can see many underwater animals; I also saw my favorite starfish and Nemo fish there. I also take the cable car, because I like the feeling of looking down in the sky. We also have lunch at the restaurant, although it was a little expensive, we still feel very happy. We have a very good time in Farglory Ocean Park.
我和我的家人在海洋公園玩得很開心,這裡的海豚、海獅、海豹都很可愛,每位訓練師也都很賣力地在表演。水族館的動物也很多,我看到很多我喜歡的魚,纜車也很棒。如果還有機會我一定會再去一次。

Great place, a little old but still fun.
Jan 2020 • Couples
This place is almost like a hidden gem near hualien. People usually go to the gorge but I hardly heard about people going here.

Because of that, the place has very little tourists and if you go on a weekday, it feels as if you have booked the whole park.

Too bad it is really out of the way, with buses only coming in an hour's interval and you have to plan your timing right.

The shows are pretty nice too, a lot of heart has been put into the park.

Great attraction for kids
Jun 2019 • Family
Even though the park doesn't have a lot of rides and requires a lot of walking, it is still worth visiting for the dolphin/sea lion shows, the aquarium, and the cable car ride with views of the ocean. Unfortunately the parade was cancelled due to rain the day we were visiting, so can't comment on it. I would suggest bringing in some drinks/food or snacks as food inside is overpriced with limited selection.

Big enough to enjoy; small enough to not get worn out
May 2019
We went on a day that had occasional rain but it was still warm enough to enjoy the water rides. You can easily enjoy the entire park in one day. We also enjoyed the performers on the stage. This is a great place to take friends and family. And the price was reasonable. If you plan to attend more than once it would be worthwhile to purchase the pass for that.

Unknown to us a comprehensive outdoor ocean park
Feb 2019 • Family
During our around the east coast Taiwan road trip came to near the end and we have a full day to find activities to occupy our toddlers. The whale watching trip is cancelled due to the bad weather and our family was driving around the coastline trying to find entertainment and found this Farglory Ocean Park.

We parked the car nearby since the parking lot was full, walked 100m to the entrance not knowing what to expect - paid the ticket price of NT$895/adult (around US$30/adult) and free entrance for our toddlers - surprisingly this US$60 a day kept our family in the ocean park for almost 6 hours!!

Firstly I was surprised that once entered the park, all rides are free no additional ticket costs. Food and beverages are additional but everything is reasonably priced for example a meal for each one of us costs about US$3.5.

We did more than 8 rides and several rides we did repeatedly because the kids enjoyed it so much - great thing is that despite the parking lot being full, but the lines to each ride is not difficult and normally within 5 minutes we are repeating the same rides already for the second time.

I think this Hualien Ocean Park has been in operation for a couple decades, either that or because of the coastal location that many of the facilities look outdated. But it does not take away the fun the children have and that’s more important for parents to keep them entertained and occupied.

There are definitely a lot more entertainment for the children so would only recommend family with children to visit. Otherwise adults might find this ocean park little of excitement.

In addition to the rides, there are also various shows including sea lions, dolphins, and circus. Also thanks to its location next to the coastal line, the views are amazing particularly with some rides high in the air able to overlook into the ocean to east Taiwan.

This is a place that children would enjoy with the sea
lion and dolphin shows and the various rides on offer though it is very quiet and I think the lady at the ticket booth would rather have been somewhere else.
Our biggest source of amusement was watching three young ladies in their finest clothes take a ride on the log flume and get off dripping wet so take heed - wear something waterproof!

Dance with Dolphins
Mar 2018 • Friends
The mother ocean is mysterious and beautiful.
The life that was born in it is colorful.
One of my favorite is dolphins swimming freely in the sea.
In Farglory Ocean Park,you can watch the wonderful performances of the dolphins and even play with them.

After the dolphin show,there are interesting interactive games.
I once to got a dolphin stuffed animal as a prize after playing beach volleyball with the dolphin.
A very interesting experience at the time.

In addition to this,there are many interactive educational facilities.

It is like a parrotfish living in tropical waters or a white Pomfret that is common in traditional markets.

There are also fantastic ocean tunnels and large glass aquariums.

Visitors can experience swimming with fish, sharks and whales.

Welcome everyone to play.

A great way to spend a day with family.
Jul 2018 • Family
This was our third visit there. The park is well maintained, it's clean and tidy. We traveled with a 6 year old and a 65 year old. We all had fun. The staff is friendly, helpful and well trained. The foreign entertainers are professionals at what they do and they put up a great show.

Beware closed on Wednesdays
Jun 2018 • Family
Visions of Chevy Chase National Lampoon's Vacation and Walley World came to mind when my 10 year old son and I arrived at the park. Website down, no notice of Wednesday closures. Unable to return, our last day in Hualien, wasted hotel room, wasted $30 taxi ride. Maybe this place is great for kids or maybe horrible? We likely will never know.
