Ocean Park offers Hong Kong residents entry pass for unlimited visits
Hong Kong theme park Ocean Park has announced that it will offer unlimited exclusive entry pass to residents of the administrative region through the Northern Hemisphere summer, giving holders flexibility to visit the park as many times as they want from now until the end of September.
This week has also seen Ocean Park launch its new Explorer R attraction, an interactive technology experience hub with an array of additional conservation and education elements.
Located at Ocean Park’s Whiskers Harbour and other designated locations at the Waterfront area, Explorer R is a technology-driven attraction that applies a stimulating mix of virtual games and interactive fun play to spark children’s imagination and scientific thinking through experiential learning.
Young guests can create their own AI SuperAnimal and going through the ‘think, try and modify’ process with Redd, will be motivated to figure out how the body parts of animals actually help them adapt to their habitats.
For children aged from two to five, they can join the Camouflage Kids! and Ninja in Nature with their parents, in which they will find out more on local biodiversity and observe how animals protect themselves from predators using camouflage through fun games.
Ocean Park also designed the Sea Land Expedition for children aged from six to 11. It allows them to travel to different locations of the park, from Rainforest, North Pole Encounter to an African Adventure to observe animals up-close. A coding session will also be included.
Children can then visit Explorer Stops located at different locations inside and outside Whiskers Harbour as they step out of Explorer R. They can conduct special missions to observe and explore nature using their five senses.
Families can also sign up for four Whiskers Harbour Maker Workshops hosted by the popular Whiskers Village Team for some DIY upcycling activities while enjoying quality family time and becoming more eco-friendly together.
Introducing the attraction, Paulo Pong Kin-yee, Deputy Chairman of Ocean Park, advised “with Ocean Park … dedicated to conservation and education, children will now get to learn about nature and conservation in a much more creative, experiential and tech-powered way that’s never been done on this scale before at the Park.”
The entry pass costs less than two regular admission tickets. It is priced at HK$760 (US$97) for adults, HK$415 (US$53) for children and HK$605 (US$77) for full-time students.
