    I have posted a big Ocean Park update. It shows all the changes that happened since The Theme Park Guy posted his update in 2009:

    There are actually a lot of changes, see below!

    Ocean Park has a new entrance and a huge aquarium now. The coolest thing is the retro-style funicular that brings you up to the mountain top with all the new rides. It's amazing!!

    This is the new area at the top of the mountain that you will reach with the funicular and the cable car. It's kinda fun fair like, the coaster is very good, but I have to say that I like the old Ocean Park areas much much more. For some reason the new section has no charm. It's too many colors, too many noises, no real theming. Weren't it on top of a mountain in Hong Kong I think it wouldn't attract any attention!

    Polar Adventure Land at the top of the mountain is still under construction. Cool idea, but in my opinion it looks a bit cheap!










  9. Unregistered Ocean Park


    Disney and more reports about Ocean Park's new Polar Adventure Land that is scheduled to open on July 13:

    South Island Line
    It’s not only the folks at Kennedy Town and west of Hong Kong who were left out with the existing railway structure of the MTR. Southern District has also been unable to take advantage of railway efficiency. No wonder the only way to get to Ocean Park, in Aberdeen is through CityBus’ route 629. But that issue has long been resolved as construction of the South Island Line is now underway. Ocean Park, Wong Chuk Hang, Lei Tung and South Horizons will be named stations in this subway line along with Admiralty, which also serves as interchange station to Shatin to Central Link.

    Expected Year of Completion: 2015

    What this brings: Travel time is greatly reduced. Once this line is open, travel time from Admiralty to Ocean Park will just be 4 minutes, while travelers from Admiralty to South Horizons will only spend 11 minutes travel time. (Enough of that dreaded Aberdeen Tunnel.) By completing this line and the long-awaited Shatin to Central Link, Hong Kong’s definition of travel efficiency will reach a higher level. Imagine the hassles of traveling from South Horizons going to Shatin at the moment. The new line should significantly cut travel time.
