With the entry of Disneyland in Hong Kong, the Ocean Park sees no threat and rightly so because when we got to Ocean Park on a Good Friday holiday, the place was just swarming with people. Statistics show that Ocean Park hosts four million visitors a year. Everywhere we go, a long queue was waiting at the entrance and so many tourist guides were waving their flags for those belonging to their tour groups. We were only able to enter a few attractions and took a few rides because of the miles of lines of people who were waiting for their turn. We ended up going around Ocean Park and taking pictures of the colorful scene and rides.
If we had been there early in the morning, we surely had enjoyed more rides. But our main purpose was to see the giant pandas that were not available at that time. So we had to contend with being there along with thousands of locals and tourists who were enjoying the holiday. But I think having those long queues only prove that Ocean Park still has its luster despite the new theme parks that were sprouting around Asia. With its rich history, good location and beautiful attractions, Ocean Park is definitely a great place for family and friends.
