Video taken yesterday of the Rollercoaster that goes over the cliff shows the water park construction in the background.
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.
It opens the new MTR station of ocean park? when it opens?
