Ocean Park Summit Attractions & Thrilling Rides

The Summit of Ocean Park Hong Kong is more exciting and thrilling than the Waterfront. Not only because a lot of extraordinary animals are located there, but because of the hair raiser rides! I never tried them though because of my motion sickness and I don't like scaring myself, but for those who want to feel the adrenaline, you'll love this place. 
Below are the attractions & hair raiser rides located in the Summit of Ocean Park Hong Kong:

POLAR ADVENTURE

Go under the ice to see all these animals from a whole new view via our underwater tunnel! Don’t forget to see our Arctic guests, the snowy owls, during special animal presentations!

RAINFOREST

If you’re traveling from Ocean Park’s Waterfront to the Summit, why not take a fun 4 minute-ride on the Ocean Express?
