Having been closed since January 26 due to recent events, Ocean Park will finally reopen on June 13. With the reopening, the park is also introducing new attractions such as Redd’s 5 Senses Discovery, an edutainment programme for children to learn through their five senses; Nature Art on Bread Workshop, an experience which combines baking and art; and Little Meerkat and Giant Tortoise Adventure, a new African-themed animal exhibit. These will be gradually unveiled by July. Meanwhile, the pandas will be taking a break as Ying Ying might be pregnant from the natural mating that occurred while the park’s doors were closed.
To celebrate the reopening, Ocean Park will reduce ticket prices from $498 to $350 for Hong Kong residents from June 13-July 31, and they’ll come with a complimentary set of in-park cash vouchers.
Note that as part of crowd control measures, patrons will have to reserve their admission online to confirm their visit date before their trip, reservations can be made 14 days in advance to the visit date. The eScheduler system on the Park’s mobile app, which allows visitors to avoid long queues by booking ahead of time now also allows bookings of up to six attractions compared to the previous three.
On site, other safety measures such as temperature checks on entry, mandatory mask-wearing, additional hand sanitising stations and floor stickers to help with maintaining safe social distances between groups will also be implemented to minimise the risk for visitors. Hoi Man Yau
