Theme Park of the Day: Disney's Animal Kingdom

First Look at Hong Kong's New Water World Ocean Park

September 26, 2021, 7:03 PM · After four years of delay, Water World Ocean Park finally opened to the public in Hong Kong last week.

The long-awaited second gate for Hong Kong's Ocean Park features 27 attractions across five themed zones, including Hong Kong’s first-ever indoor surf simulator, Surf Striker, as well as nine water slides, two wave pools, and a children's play area, the Whiskers’ Splash.

Theme Park Insider reader Adriel Tjokrosaputro takes us for a video walk around the new park:

Adriel writes, "In summary, the park does offer something new to local residents. Given that Hong Kong has a very strict quarantine regulation, this new park will surely be quite popular amongst locals."

Ocean Park ranked among the top 20 most-visited theme parks in the world in 2019, but has been locked in a battle with neighbor Hong Kong Disneyland for local and out-of-market visitors. A water park, however, gives Ocean Park something that Disney does not offer, potentially giving the destination a much-needed boost.

Another thing to look forward to! We have done several projects before on themed parks. I can say that this is outstanding.
