    Construction of the waterpark is progressing "smoothly" but the land turned out to be more swampy than expected and even though a solution to dealing with the swampy land has been found, completion of the waterpark has been delayed by four to five months with an expected opening in either 2019 or 2020.

    Ocean Park has seen a huge drop in visitors and revenue this year. They are hoping that new additions will attract more visitors and get them to stay at the resort for longer.

    The HK$241.1 million deficit was the largest since the park ceased to be a Hong Kong Jockey Club subsidiary in 1987, as visitor numbers to the park were down 18.8 per cent to 6 million and revenue shrank 17.8 per cent to HK$1.61 billion in the fiscal year ended June 30.
    To improve its performance, the park will create sources of income by launching a new entertainment and dining area at its entrance before February, according to Ocean Park executive director of sales and marketing Vivian Lee Ling-fung.
    “It will attract daytime visitors to stay behind at night and working adults after work,” she said, adding the plan would be feasible with the debut of the MTR’s South Island Line on December 28. Rail travel from Admiralty would take just four minutes, she added.

    Details about the design of the waterpark in terms of being eco-friendly as described by Walter Kerr, executive director of the project development division at Ocean Park:

    blurring the lines between indoors and outdoors”. Some water rides and slides are being created primarily for outdoor summertime use but there will also be indoor water attractions and rides.
    Buildings will incorporate large glass panels that can be opened to let in cool sea breezes, which should cut back on air conditioning.

    Fully reflecting Ocean Park’s respect for the natural environment, the design of Water World features a series of terraced platforms along a hillside facing the South China Sea, blending in perfectly with the natural terrain with extensive vegetation and green roofs. The sloping gradient of the setting makes it possible to build gigantic water slides without having to construct extensive supporting structures, thereby minimising the need for excavation and the consequent disposal of construction waste.
