    Public bus routes are also available from Hong Kong Island as well as Kowloon - alight at Aberdeen Tunnel Toll Plaza.

    Getting to Ocean Park by car is a breeze. Simply take the Wan Chai Entrance of the Aberdeen Tunnel and follow the Canal Road - Wong Nai Chung Road Overpass. The tunnel toll is HK$5 for a one-way trip. Once you've passed through the tunnel, you will find yourself on Wong Chuk Hang Road.

    Plan Your Day At Ocean Park

    Check Out Show Times & Animal Feeding Times Ahead

    Planning your day in advance is essential, especially with kids in tow! The park is pretty big and it is pretty much impossible to do everything in one day, especially if you are restricted by factors such as nap and feeding times, inclement weather, different kids' ages and other.

    What helps is to plan a virtual itinerary in advance here to have a clear plan for the day of what you want to achieve. Be sure to check out the program schedule which includes show times, animal feeding times as well as facilities under maintenance. Book your animal encounters here.

    Use this link to filter attractions by type: animals, thrill rides, family attractions, programs, wet rides, and more. It will also give you an indication of minimum height, age, and accessibility facilities.

    Ocean Park Itinerary For Younger Kids

    Rides & Attractions For Young Children & Toddlers At Ocean Park

    Mornings in Hong Kong tend to be cooler than the afternoons in the warmer months, so head straight to Whiskers Harbour where kids can run around and explore.

    Morning - Whiskers Harbour:

    Don't forget to check out the revamped Whiskers Theater and their brand new production of All Star Jam featuring Ocean Park's favorite characters and mascots. Check out the full schedule here.

    After spending a couple of hours here and you've worked up an appetite, visit one of the many restaurants offering a variety of cuisines, depending on what you fancy eating. If you've brought a packed lunch, settle in a quiet corner or one of the picnic tables nearby.

    Depending on the queues, take the cable car or the Polar Express to the Summit - be sure to reverse the order on the way back so you get the full experience!

    Afternoon - The Summit

    If it's naptime, head to one of the indoor attractions at Polar Adventure or Marine World for some cooling A/C and some shade. Depending on energy levels, choose from some of the attractions below and allow sufficient time to get back down to explore the rest of the park and visit the pandas!

    Late afternoon- The Waterfront
