Things to Remember when going to Ocean Park, Hong Kong – Pre-planning your Precious day out

Ocean Park in Hong Kong is a massive theme park that has plenty to offer to its visitors. And as with most things, there is plenty to keep in mind to ensure that the outing is a fun one.

1

Visit during the off peak hours

The theme park is quite crowded thanks to the constant flow of visitors from other parts of China. You will find plenty of elderly people traversing the massive theme park as well as children. To avoid the crowds, you should consider visiting Ocean Park during the off peak days. Not only Ocean Park, this trick works for most theme parks in Hong Kong. Residents usually have yearly passes so they crowd to the park during any public holiday. Chances are that if you visit on a weekday you will experience less of a crowd.

Get there no later than 10 AM

This is again related to the previous topic. The theme park opens its door at ten in the morning and the tour buses, as well as the majority of the visitors to the park, enter at around eleven or later. If you wish to beat the crowd and enter the rides much earlier without the queues, try to make it to Ocean Park Hong Kong by 10 AM. To put it into perspective, the theme park welcomes around twenty thousand visitors every single day so there are plenty of benefits of making it early. The South Island MTR stops right in front of the theme park so it shouldn't be a difficult task to get there from nearby hotels like Cosmo Hotel Wan Chai Hong Kong.

Bring essential items

Do not forget to bring along a water bottle and a few drinks along or even snacks. Yes, it is true that the theme park has plenty of restaurants and food stalls but the prices are extremely inflated. You can expect to pay around 45HK $ for one bottle of water. A better thing to do is to buy your items from outside and save your money for souvenir items on the inside. You might also want to bring a cap or an umbrella as the sun can get really annoying during the afternoons. A camera is an absolute necessity too as there is plenty of interesting things to see. Not just the sights, you can also treasure the valuable family moments.

Make use of the Ocean Park App

While this might seem like a meagre issue, the Ocean park smartphone app is quite handy and will help you plan your trip to the park. Through the app one can check details like the waiting time at an activity, bring up a map of the park and check out the schedules of the events coming up. The theme park offers free Wi-Fi which you can use to log into the app, however, as with most public Wi-Fi networks, it can be quite slow and you are better off relying on your own mobile connection.
