Ocean Park is more than just a marine mammal park and oceanarium, it is also an animal theme park and amusement park. Following its redevelopment in 2014, the park now has over 80 attractions and rides across 91.5 hectares (~ size of 90 basketball courts). It’s definitely the largest theme park I have ever been.
The park is separated by a large mountain into two areas – The Summit and The Waterfront. It is connected by a Cable Car system and the Ocean Express railway.
To reach Ocean Park, we took MTR to Admiralty and Bus 629. Look out for Exit B for the bus to Ocean Park. You can get the ticket from this ticketing booth. Quick tip #1 – you can get your tickets online for some savings.
Plan Your Day
You can get lost easily in the Ocean Park due to its massive terrain and especially during the holiday seasons and weekends, the crowd is rather overwhelming with many tour groups.
Quick tip #2 – plan your day early and beat the crowd fast. We explored the summit first to avoid the crowds.
Quick tip #3 – In some areas, it will be freezing cold due to the air conditioning standards. So, remember to bring a jacket for Polar Adventure
We spent 6 hours in the Ocean Park and enjoyed ourselves. The other caveat, which is bad in this Ocean Park, is that there are a lot of hills and steps, and so be prepared physically and make sure you have enough time traveling from one activity to the next. Since you will be spending more than half a day in the Ocean Park, you can also rent a stroller if you do not have one. During summer, you have to put enough sunblock and get ready to be tanned. Otherwise, the Ocean Park is easily a place for family with little toddlers walk around.
