From incredible animals and thrilling rides to local delicacies and more, discover Ocean Park Hong Kong - one of the city's top attractions

Dating back to 1977, Ocean Park remains one of Hong Kong’ most iconic tourist attractions and has thrilled visitors for decades without showing any signs of slowing down. This educational theme park is a big favourite with families and brings together local Hong Kong touches with an environmental focus. For more details on Ocean Park HK and information to help you plan your visit, read on below.

Ocean Park Hong Kong

Ocean Park and Disneyland are widely regarded as Hong Kong’s most popular children’s attractions, with the former bringing a distinctly local flair to its amusement park offerings. Filled with roller coasters, shows, a scenic cable car and Hong Kong’s biggest aquarium, it’s a fantastic place to bring the family if you can afford to spend a whole day exploring the attraction.

Ocean Park HK describes itself as ‘Hong Kong’s premier educational theme park’ and spans across 915,000 square metres, with seven different areas to explore. With a distinctly environmental focus to each of its spaces, there’s something for everybody - thrillseekers, animal lovers and curious children alike.

For those who enjoy life in the fast lane, the park’s selection of roller coasters will have hearts racing on attractions such as the Hair Raiser, the Mine Train and The Dragon. Classics like the Raging River, Flying Swing and the park’s iconic Cable Car are also a great option for those who would rather take things slow, while children can enjoy dedicated areas for littler ones, the gigantic Grand Aquarium and meet both red and giant pandas at the Giant Panda Village.

Ocean Park Tickets

Ocean Park tickets are included in the price of the Hong Kong Pass, which removes the need to queue at the ticket counter or organise purchasing separate tickets ahead of visiting - saving time and money!

The Ocean Park Halloween celebrations affect opening hours and guests are advised to check the park’s monthly schedule during the month of October, as the park remains open later on a number of days.

Ocean Park Halloween

Halloween is one of the most anticipated holidays of the year at Ocean Park, as the entire marine-inspired amusement park is transformed for the season. While the park runs as normal in the daylight hours, once the sun goes down a number of terrifying mascots join the throng - ready to terrify guests who have chosen to brave the park.

Additional attractions are opened including a number of haunted houses while others are tweaked for the holiday. Ocean Park Halloween 2018 brought together horrific sights spanning everything from haunted hospitals, damned circus performers and gory figures from Chinese mythology. The park’s signature roller coaster, the Mine Train, was also transformed for the season with a creepy VR experience.

Dates and prices for Ocean Park Halloween 2019 have not been released yet, but will be updated closer to the time. Dedicated Ocean Park Halloween attractions generally open at 5.30pm with the park remaining open longer than usual.
