As part of Ocean Park’s year-long 40th anniversary celebrations, this year's Ocean Park Summer Splash will take guests on a trip down memory lane to revisit their childhood summertime.
From 1 July to 27 August 2017, guests will be mesmerised by an exhilarating wave of summer activities and attractions. Hot happenings include Hong Kong’s largest-ever sand sculptures created by celebrated US sculptor Ray Villafane and an exclusive collaboration with classic Hong Kong brand LT Duck to bring thousands of yellow rubber ducks to the Park.
In addition, Ocean Park will also be introducing additional water-splashing attractions and not-to-be-missed succulent snacks to help beat the summer heat.
Wet & Wild Sand Party
Villafane and his team built three gigantic sand sculptures, including Hong Kong’s largest one to date – a 153-square-metre wide and 6-metre tall installation that features Ocean Park's signature rides and animal ambassadors. As for water sports enthusiast, be prepared to get drenched at thrilling water-splashing games which include Wild Foam Zone, Mega Gush and Super Spray Tunnel.
Bath Time Fun with LT Duck
Ocean Park’s collaboration with iconic toy label LT Duck will see Whiskers Harbour brimming with the famous ducks. A total of 6,500 cute yellow rubber ducks will be afloat at the Duckie Family Pond, at the same time, providing the public a hot spot for selfies.
In conjunction with the summer happenings, Ocean Park will take your taste buds on a journey of appetising delights at Neptune's and Tuxedos Restaurants. Guests with a bigger appetite should head to the Lakeside BBQ Fest, which offers a variety of mouth-watering eatables on the banks of the beautiful lagoon or visit the Summer Seafood Delight Semi-Buffet Dinner which features sustainable seafood.
Explore Marine Life at Grand Aquarium
The Park’s summer-only snorkelling programme at the Grand Aquarium Exploration returns in July, allowing guests to become immersed in the Park’s signature attraction. Led by a professional diver, guests will encounter colourful coral fishes that reside within the aquarium. This will provide them with an excellent opportunity to learn about the marine life and conservation efforts.
Ocean Park will also launch its Summer Night promotion starting 14 July 2017, with extended operating hours on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
