“Best theme park/zoo I have been to”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

My tips for a better experience:

1. Go on a weekday if possible to avoid the biggest crowds
2. Get there at opening time of 9:30
3. Go straight to the cable cars and enjoy the ride across to the rides before its too hot or crowded
4. Wear your most comfy footwear (it's a very big park and you will walk lots)
5. The cable car restaurant is air conditioned and the food is good and the drinks cold.
6. Plan your route around the rides to use escalators and not go over the same ground too much.

It's a great park and my only criticism is it could really use more shaded areas.

“This is a great place for the family”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

We live and die during the hot summer months in HK at Ocean Park. The activities for our two year old and four month old are great. Get there early, right on the open at 930 am and be leaving before noon as it can get crowded.

“One of the best theme parks I have been to”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

What a surprise day out! This attraction should be ranked much higher. Only went because we met a fellow traveller who recommended Ocean Park. The best way to describe Ocean Park is a zoo and amusement park in one. The entry is great value at $35 AUD that includes all rides, train and cable car. The animal enclosures are excellent and there are plenty of shows throughout the day. You will need a full day if you want to see everything and try out most of the rides. A taxi from Causeway Bay cost $100 HKD during non peak time including tunnel toll. Would return to Ocean Park next time I'm in Hong Kong.

“Best amusement park ever!”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

Having been to Disneyland we decided to try Ocean Park. After Day-1 we only saw half of it, so it was a natural decision to go back second day.
The park is huge, full of interesting animals, very safe, and with relatively good and not overpriced food.

If you go there, don't miss the Pandas, the dolphin show and the penguins! If you just go there for the rides, have fun on the Adventure mountain!

“The Chinese Disney Version, and is awesome”
Reviewed October 14, 2012 via mobile

Been there with two young children, and the park was amazing.
If my children were older or If I was going with my mates, no worries, the Park will cater for all ages and tastes.

Yes the cable car is old, but the ride is amazing, with wonderful views. When the roller-coasters appear...wow!!!
Roller coasters and elevators on the top of the mountain, how awesome is that? Aquariums, penguins, pandas, seals, and much more, not only a park but also a Zoo, a-m-a-z-i-n-g!!!

Unfortunately life is not perfect and there is always something bad to report... In this one is the outrageous prices for food and beverages in e park, specially in comparison with Disneyland Hong Kong.

Go!! It's worth it!!
