Ocean Park Hong Kong, commonly known as Ocean Park, is a marine mammal park, oceanarium, animal theme park and amusement park situated in Wong Chuk Hang and Nam Long Shan in the Southern District of Hong Kong. Opened in 1977 by the then Governor of Hong Kong Sir Murray MacLehose, Ocean Park became popular but by 2005 was unprofitable and widely expected to lose out to the new Hong Kong Disneyland. However, the Park responded with a HK$5.5 billion development plan that saw it expand to over 80 attractions and rides, and steadily grow visitor numbers to 7.6 million in 2014, making it the world's 13th most visited theme park, and the largest theme park in Asia. Half of all visitors now come from mainland China, in growth that parallels rising mainland tourist visitor levels to Hong Kong over the same period. Since this high, visitor numbers have declined to around 6 million in 2016 under the background of declining tourist arrivals in Hong Kong. Covering an area of 91.5 hectares (226 acres), the park is separated by a large mountain into two areas, The Summit (Headland) and The Waterfront (Lowland). These areas can be reached by a 1.5 kilometres (0.93 mi) cable car system, or the Ocean Express funicular railway. To ascend the Headland comprises several hills, visitors can use Hong Kong's second longest outdoor escalator. The theme park has various attractions and rides, including four roller coasters, and also animal exhibits with different themes, such as a giant panda habitat, rainforest and polar displays, as well as an aquarium featuring the world's largest aquarium dome. Between 1979 and 1997, Ocean Park was most famous for its signature killer whale, Miss Hoi Wai (海威小姐). As well as being an amusement park, Ocean Park Hong Kong aims to merge entertainment and education, including conservation advocacy. However it has been criticised by wildlife advocates for practices including the wild capture of large sea animals, such as dolphins and orca, and the presentation of shows featuring such animals performing. Ocean Park is also renowned for holding the largest Halloween events in Asia. In January 2017, the Ocean Park saw a 30% surge in visitors, credited to a new MTR line, big discounts and an early Lunar New Year holiday.

    This is truly a theme park that has something for everyone. There is just so much to see and do, from the amusing to the heart stopping, to the educational or romantic. Very well-managed too with fine crowd controls. Even when the park is full of tour groups, you don’t feel overwhelmed and attractions are easy to reach and enjoy. In every way, lives up to its claim as Hong Kong’s premier theme park. IMO, a must visit for every tourist to Hong Kong.

    Lots to see and do. Our little one loved the shark tank and penguins in particular. I would recommend getting there in the morning (though most attractions open at 11am) as it gets crazily busy in the afternoon. We went on Monday so it is probably even busier at the weekend! Not the best for wheelchair access or if you have heavy strollers

    An attraction park on a mountain with a bonus cable car ride to reach it. Bonus zoo and aquarium. No other park I've been to quite lives up it in terms of concept alone, therefore: arguably one of the best ever (rides-wise? definitely not the best ever and somewhat underwhelming considering the long waiting lines for each). You will get spectacular views if you're here in the evening and the weather happens to be great, though. Worth it.

    Cable car amazing. One decent rollercoaster and one fun drop type ride. A lot of it was closed, food not good. Small very average park in possibly the most beautiful location of any theme park anywhere

    Good to spend whole day with small children. You can enjoy both as amusement park and aquarium in one place. So many attractions both for adult and kid. Needs more food service station.
