“An attraction worth visiting”

Farglory Ocean Park
Ranked #14 of 270 things to do in Hualien County
Attraction details
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.

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

We had a blast there with our kids 3 and 5. Even my parents enjoyed themselves. We were there from 930 til 5pm and time passed so quickly when you are having fun. It was entertaining and also eduacational. We watched the dolphin and sea lion performances, took some rides, attended a talk which told you everything you ever need to know about dolphins, and watched the feeding at the aquarium etc, none of which we required queuing!!! The best part of this theme park is the spectacular scenery which we did all these. Facing the ocean pacific in front, and backed by mountains in the backdrop, it was amazing...

I visited here and the dolphins seem sad, confined to small pools, forced to do tricks and kiss visitors. It's completely unnatural. Come to find out they were captured in a brutal manner from Taiji, Japan. If you aren't aware of what is happening in Taiji I suggest you check it out before you spend money supporting the captivity trade. A quick web search will uncover eye opening information. Thousands of dolphins and small whales are killed every year as bycatch of the live trade. It's truly alarming that a lovely country like Taiwan is party to this brutality. Please reconsider your visit here.

Mostly for younger kids, meaning under 10 years old. Expensive and a bit disorganized. The day we were there, they lost power for most of the afternoon. Spent most of afternoon just milling around because many rides and stores lost power. The dolphin and other animal shows were ok, but cannot compare with Sea World in Orlando.
