Aqua Voyage Ocean Park Hong Kong January 2014

Aqua Voyage Ocean Park Hong Kong January 2014

Opened in 1977, Ocean Park Hong Kong is a marine-life theme park featuring animal exhibits, thrill rides and shows. This year, Ocean Park is making the holiday season extra meaningful by launching the “Blue Matters – Promoting Debris Free Oceans” campaign, which features the Aqua Voyage aerial spectacular and all-new presentations at Ocean Theatre and Whiskers Harbour to promote awareness of marine conservation. The Aqua Voyage is presented by 18 top performers from Australia and Zimbabwe at the Waterfront Plaza. The adventure story is about how a young girl, lost in a storm, discovers a mysterious underwater world, along with her encounters with fanciful sea fairies and colorful seas urchins. Some of the them have taken part in the production of blockbusters such as The Matrix Reloaded, Superman Returns and The Chronicles of Narnia. It features lighting and sound effects, which combines stunts, dance and acrobatics to create graceful motions, including quadruple trapeze, aerial silk dance, the daring “Flying Fox”, and other jaw-dropping jumps and somersaults. The realistic backdrop design and stunning lighting and sound effects all add to the extraordinary experience.  
 
We also visited the Old Hong Kong street which opened in early 2012 to commemorate the 35th Anniversary of the park. The street is a beautiful and authentic replica of a city street of the old town bring back the memories and cultural heritage of the old days of the territory in the 50's, 60's, and 70's. The street scenes reflect the many aspects of life, its food, fashion, transportation and entertainment. They also make available the local foods in its dai pai dong area, the local traditional eateries or street stalls. There is a wide range of offerings, over 70 types of snacks and cakes, all our favorites were there: siumai, egg tarts, and almond cookies. What I found so remarkable in this new section is that many of the "old" features can still be seen among Hong Kong today: the trams are still operational today as they were in the old days, the dai pai dongs can still be found in most neighborhoods, and for the traditional shops, you can easily find them in different parts of Hong Kong. The Polar Adventure, Ocean Park's newest attraction, is a fun way to explore the North and South poles. We saw the long-tusked Pacific walruses, spotted seals, arctic foxes, snowy owls and other extraordinary animals.
