“Crowded”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

The rides needed at least 10 mins to queue and there were many people cutting queues which made the duration of waiting longer. Overall it was a good experience

“Not their fault but we were disappointed”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

Based on the recommendations by my HK friends, this was like a place that you had to see. So of course we did so.

Friendly word of advice - make sure that the day you visit Ocean Park is not a public holiday in HK or China. We made the unfortunate choice of visiting Ocean Park on the Mid-Autumn holidays and we were overwhelming by the deluge of mainlanders. This had a flow on effect as all the rides had a wait time of in excess of an hour. At the end of the day, we manage to have 1 go on the bumper blasters (bumper cars), space wheel, the rapids and the cable cars.

The space wheel had no wait time probably due to the fact that it was located in a isolated part of the park. I had wasted 2 hours waiting in line for the Hair Raiser but gave up considering that snail pace that it was moving it plus my 7 year old was gettting hungry.

Also bear in mind that as Ocean Park is build around a hillside, there is some degree of climbing and walking to do. Escalators are present but will not get you from point A to point B totally.

Bus service from Admiralty to Ocean Park was easy and directions were available.

Probably will visit on the next trip if it happens but remember, not on a gazetted PUBLIC HOLIDAY!

“Good family entertainment”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

The park has a great mix of animals and rides. The cable car and train connecting the two parks are great fun. The highlight for us was seeing the giant pandas and the red pandas, but there are loads of other animals as well. Some bits feel a bit too commercial with lots of opportunities to spend money on silly fair ground games and that spoilt the atnmosphere in places.

“Good day trip”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

Great zoo/amusement park. Entry fee is reasonable compared to othr parks Ive been to. The animals seem to be well taken care of, large cages except for the raccoon! Smallest cage there with no place for him to hide or get cover!

Panda bears were great to see, once in a lifetime experience to see them. Line ups were sometimes long for different attractions but moved very quickly.

Take a ride on the cable cars, very cool and on the other side of them is the dolphin park that puts on a great show.

“the long long queues and crowd make it maddening”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

it would be a nice place to go and enjoy if only the crowds are manageable..it took almost 1 hr to get it..then about 1 hr waiting in queue for each ride..that spoils the experience. go to hong kong in weekdays..that the only way to enjoy..and never ever go to hk in any kind of vacation days like their independence day..christmas etc..you'll repent it.. when we were there more than 2 million people from mainland china came into hk..u can imagine the rest
