The giant panda in Ocean Park
A close-up encounter with a giant panda
Ocean Park is famous for its enormous collection of animals: one of the biggest and most interesting collections throughout all of Asia. The most noteworthy animals are the 4 giant pandas that live in the Giant Panda Adventure. Jia Jia and An An have lived in Ocean Park since 1997 and were joined in 2007 by Le Le and Ying Ying. The bears are real superstars in Hong Kong. The impressive accommodations of these 4 animals are inspired by their natural habitat. To come eye-to-eye with a giant panda is truly a once in a lifetime experience.
The Hair Raiser roller coaster in Ocean Park
Adrenaline in the Hair Raiser
A roller coaster named Hair Raiser leaves little to the imagination. Daredevils will enjoy this literally hair-raising ride. Even real thrill seekers will need to catch their breath after a ride with speeds that reach 88 kilometres an hour and some amazing G-force loops. But try to keep your eyes open on the way down so you don’t miss the great view over the South China Sea.
Travel back in time to Old Hong Kong
Discover old Hong Kong
Old Hong Kong underlines the great diversity of Ocean Park. This section of the park takes visitors back to the Hong Kong of the ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s. This may not sound that exciting, but the exhibit is surprisingly interesting. The Heritage Tram takes you through the old streets and to various highlights of the city, including a replica of the former clock tower of the Star Ferry. Don't be surprised if you suddenly spot an English telephone box: the British influences from the colonial era are also on display here.
King Penguins in Polar Adventure
Embark on an adventure with penguins and walruses
Polar Adventure is one of the newest attractions in Ocean Park. This ice-cold adventure gives visitors the chance to peek under the ice through an underwater tunnel. The area is also home to a large colony of King Penguins. A sweater or light jacket is recommended because the temperatures in Polar Adventure are kept low for the comfort of the animals. For a more exciting polar adventure, ride the Arctic Blast, a roller coaster in the shape of a bobsled.
