The family and I went to Hong Kong’s Ocean Park a few weeks ago on one of Hong Kong’s many public holidays. The last time I was at Ocean Park Hong Kong was in the mid-1980s and I was around 10 years old. So it was some kind of wonderful to be visiting it this time around with my own children!
I forgot how amazingly scenic Ocean Park is, being built on rolling hills right by the sea. Honestly, the views (and associated heart palpitations) from the cable car ride are pretty much worth the cost of admission.
We didn’t get to go on too many rides as my youngest unfortunately fell short of the minimum height limit (which was from memory about 120cm). On the upside, it did mean that we spent quite a bit of time playing carnival games, which ended up being lots of fun (consequently I also found out that I am surprisingly good at the shooting games – I attribute that to many hours of playing PopCork!). So at the end of the day, we had two very happy girls with a bunch of cuddly prizes!
Next time we’re hoping to see the animal shows and enclosures. This fun park is definitely worth a whole-day visit if you are in Hong Kong (just be mindful of the height restrictions on the rides!).
