The Grand Aquarium
One of the best areas here is the Grand Aquarium which hosts a lot of marine life.
From small animals up to the huge ones.
And various schools of fish!
Old Hong Kong
This part is a cute area where you get to travel back in time to see the old Hong Kong. There are also various stores here including small food stalls.
This is also the location of the start of the cable car ride to get to the other part of the park.
Instead of the cable car, you can also ride the tram from this area.
Tip: Use the Cable car to get to the other side, then use the tram when you want to go back so you can get to ride both of them.

The 7 attractions here are:
- Bamboo Zone

That’s why the Pandas here are just chillin’ and enjoying the enclosures.
Aside from the Giant Panda, the Red Panda is also here! Remember Master Chifu from Kung Fu Panda? Here he is!
Dive Into Local Diversity
After the Pandas we also get to see other creatures like this Chinese Giant Salamander which lies there steadily and looking at us.

Little Meerkat & Giant Tortoise Adventure
Here are some Meerkats! It was feeding time when we arrived so we got to see them in action. They have a keen sense of smell so they smell the insects even though the keepers place them in feeding boxes.
Hi, tortoise! Nice sunbathing right there!
There are almost no tourists in this area so you can have the area all by yourself.
There is also a playground here which there are no visitors. As mentioned earlier, people who go to Ocean Park tend to go straight to the other side leaving this area visitor-free. Hahaha
Here is an interactive game in which we get to run and jump along the game.
Time to go to the other side!
We took the cable car and went to the other side.
This is the first view that we saw upon arriving.
This next area is rainforest-themed so all of the attractions here are in this theme.
The 5 attractions are:
- Ocean Express Summit Station
- Summit Plaza
- Rainforest Why Zone
- Expedition Trail
- The Rapids
This is the only ride in this area, and it will surely make you wet!
There are still a lot of animals in this area.
Here are some of them…
This is one of my favorite parts of the park because it has thrilling rides.
The 5 attractions here are:
- The Flash
- Whirly Bird
- Rev Booster
- Bumper Blaster
- Hair Raiser
This is the most thrilling ride in the park, so of course we had to ride it.
Our action camera is not allowed so just took a photo while sitting on the ride. There are various loops along and this ride is very fast, which can make your hair rise!
There are also various carnival games available here so you can play some games and win good prizes.
This ride makes you feel like riding an airplane, but in circles only.
Busy doesn’t want to try rides that are just going around because it might make him dizzy, so it’s just me who tried this one. I am sitting on a chair in a circular area where we are being thrown while being spun.
This ride goes around and uses Centrifugal force that throws away passengers.
From its name, you will know that it is the coldest part of the park.
The 4 attractions here are:
- Arctic Blast
- South Pole Spectacular
- Arctic Fox Den
- North Pole Encounter
This is the only ride here which is also a thrilling one.
Here is the video of your point of view while riding:

Our timing is perfect because it is feeding time. We saw the foxes being fed and they are somehow trained.
South Pole Spectacular
Inside this area, we get to see Penguins all around. Yes! All around! Even below us!
Some Penguins are just chilling on the iceberg.
But some are swimming and playing around.
This one has a lot of bigger animals from the polar region.
Just like this Walrus who is just chilling while swimming around.
The end of the Cable car is located here, so this is the first area that you will see after riding it.
The 10 attractions here are:
- Cable Car
- Sea Jelly Spectacular
- Shark Mystique
- Dolphin Explorations
- Ocean Park Tower
- Pacific Pier
- Flying Sqing
- Ferris Wheel
- Crazy Galleon
- Wild Twister
This is one of the rides in the area, and of course one of the oldest.
This is the area where we get to see some seals!
They are so cute, just sleeping or taking a bath.
This is the area of the Dolphin shows. Before getting here make sure you know the schedule so you can be in the area before the show starts.
There were three Dolphins when we watched the show.
Some seals are joining the show too! They’re adorable!
The whole show is in Chinese, so we didn’t understand anything but it’s still okay.
This is one of the parts that we very much enjoyed! We don’t know that this part exists because we did not check out the map. But when I looked up, I saw this and we went inside.
This is a giant aquarium with a lot of different sharks swimming around. Here are some of the sharks that we saw:
This is a small shark that looks like an Eel. Most of them are just beside the viewing deck and not moving a lot.
Even though it’s our second time in Ocean Park Hong Kong, this is the first time that we saw a sawfish!
It looks like a fish in a cartoon.
Blacktip Reef Shark
These are the most common sharks that we see in the movies.
Ragged Tooth Shark
Apologies for the blurred picture we couldn’t get a clear picture of the video during our visit because this shark always came out of nowhere. We were like “ok ok here comes” and then it changed its swimming direction.
Zebras have stripes but this shark has circles around it.
Where to eat in Ocean Park Hong Kong?
There are a lot of restaurants and snack carts in the whole park, so you can just pick any. We had Panda buns from Club Panda before we rode the cable car. This is the only restaurant in the park that sells these buns.
Next, we had a snow cone because we went here during summer. These snacks came from a snack cart near Thrill Mountain. The snacks differ depending on the season, cold snacks for summer and hot snacks for winter.
Where to get Souvenirs in Ocean Park Hong Kong?
There are a lot of souvenir shops in the park too! But the biggest souvenir shop is located along Aqua City.
Some souvenir shops are also located in other areas of the park.
There are other attractions in the park, just like the light and fountain show which is played twice or thrice before the park closes.
There are also pop-up performances like the pop-up dancers along Arctic Blast, and these scheduled performances by the mascots.
Because it was summer, there were also performances with water. Just like the Flashdance…
And the Foam party.
That’s all that we can share during our Hong Kong Disneyland experience. We hope this helped you with your trip. Enjoy!
