11th July 2019 – (Hong Kong) Construction of the HK$2.9 billion (US$369.4 million) Hong Kong’s first year-round, all-weather water park in Ocean Park will be completed by the end of 2019 despite some delays. The water park will be able to accommodate 7,000 visitors once open.
Construction work started in 2015 and the Water World will also be the first and only waterfront water park in South East Asia, setting new standards in seamlessly integrating a state-of-the-art water park with its hillside surroundings through a series of terraced platforms and wave pools facing the majestic South China Sea.
The facility, which boasts 27 indoor and outdoor attractions, will feature not only extensive attractions for water fun, many available in Hong Kong for the first time, but also a variety of dining and retail outlets. The development of Water World, which is targeted for completion by end 2019 is an integral part of Ocean Park’s ongoing transformation into an international resort destination offering multiple parks and hotel accommodation.
Parents with fond childhood memories of water fun at Ocean Park can look forward to bringing their children to the brand new Water World, which will span twice the size and feature three times as many attractions as the previous facility.
Water World’s extensive rides and facilities will span indoor and outdoor areas as well as across three levels, with each decorated according to the sporting themes associated with the Reef, the Caves and the Beach respectively. A total of 18 rides of different intensity levels will be available to meet the needs of all ages, from some free-fall style speed slides for thrill-seekers to a leisurely lazy river. Among the new rides available in Hong Kong for the first time will be a “surf rider”, where guests can ride waves on a surfboard. Old favourites such as the five-lane “rainbow slide” will return in the form of an eight-lane “mat racer”, where guests will slide down the track while lying on a mat. There will also be multi-person rides and a resort-style cabana area for families and friends to dine, refresh and relax together.
