Ocean Park Waterfront Attractions & Rides

Compare to the Summit, the attractions and rides in Waterfront are more for kids and well, for those kids at heart that are too afraid to try the more thrilling rides, like me.
 
Here are the attractions and rides at the Waterfront Ocean Park Hong Kong:

AQUA CITY

(C1) Ocean Square | (C2) Koi Creek | (C3) Conservation Kiosk
As soon as you enter the park, you will find different attractions at the Aqua City. For me the attractions there are not really interesting, maybe because the reason why I want to go there is to see a Panda. If you want to explore each of the attractions at the Park, you can do so by referring to their map. Below are the attractions at the Aqua City based on the location from the entrance. You can skip most of them and just head directly to the attractions you came there to see.
Is where the adventure starts. It's the location before the entrance and where the ticketing office is located. If you bought the ticket from Klook, you don't need to fall in-line, just go straight to the entrance gate and present your printed voucher to their staff to enter. There are locker rooms at the right side after you enter if you want to leave your bags or luggage. Please click here for the rate.

(C4) Aqua City Lagoon
Walking past the entrance, you will find a lagoon to for a refreshing sprays from the dancing fountains weave intricate patterns into the air. By night, before the park closes. the whole area is transformed into a stage for the world’s first 360° water screen show Symbio in which two 9m-tall fiery dragons clash on screen! Feel the fury of the Fire Dragon up-close as it hurls fire across the water and the power of the Water Dragon as it spews jets of water into the air amidst astounding lighting and sound effects. Set against an exhilarating soundtrack composed by an Oscar-winning composer, join the dragons as they lead us through an action-packed story about the union between humans, the Earth and the need to protect our planet.

(C5) The Grand Aquarium 
Your journey at the Grand Aquarium may start at the sunny sea shore but will quickly bring you to the darkest depths of the ocean floor! Before you enter, you'll already be able to hear the power of the ocean as water roars through a blow hole! Vibrant corals undulate as you pass the spectacular coral tank and stroll through a beach adorned with sand sculptures. At the touch pool, children get hands-on experience with sea cucumbers and sea stars as they develop an appreciation for sea life with all 5 senses at an early age! Marvel at the beauty of a solar eclipse before you 'dive' deeper underwater, where bioluminescent creatures glow in the dark and the mysterious shadows of fish flicker by your shoulder! Enter the Reef Tunnel, where you will get a taste of the profoundly beautiful ecosystem surrounding coral reefs. As you descend further around a gigantic swirl tank, look up and admire the schooling milkfish as they glitter like a kaleidoscope of stars! As you walk through the bubble tunnel, remember to peer through the world's largest aquarium dome, which stands at an astounding 5.5m in diameter! Then, take a final dive down into the abyss, where some of the ocean's most bizarre creatures live, before reaching the climax of your journey – an awe-inspiring 13m wide acrylic viewing panel behind which 5,000 fish from over 400 species meet you eye-to-eye!

(B3) Gator Marsh
Who's afraid of alligators? Although you might think they look scary, alligators are really very fascinating creatures! Learn all about the endangered Chinese Alligator at the Gator Marsh! This magnificent creature has come all the way from the Yangtze River to teach you about what fun animals they really are! The Chinese Alligator is historically associated with the mythical Chinese dragon. Local people used to refer to them as the 'earth dragons', and believed these 'dragons' had a special ability to call for rain. Some farmers even used the alligator's roar to predict the amount of rainfall for that season! Although Chinese Alligators live to the ripe old age of 50 years in the wild, habitat loss and illegal hunting for medicinal use have made them extremely rare. See these 'dragons' at Ocean Park to find out more about their habits and how we can help save them from extinction!
