It’s been a tough year for Ocean Park. Visitors have been down by 30 per cent in past months, and the park is expected to lose visitors through the rest of the year. But a boost of $10.6 billion in funding from the government might change that.

The park plans to add 20 new attractions across seven different zones by 2027 with the aim of increasing the amount of annual visitors to 7.5 million by then — that’s double the current numbers.

New attractions include Explorer’s Wharf, a marine animal environment with underwater viewing that’s slated to be completed by 2023-24 and that will replace the current dolphin show, the Ocean Square zone with restaurants, shops, and live performances that will be open to the public for free, a 10,000sqft comprehensive education center, and Azure Bay, where guests will be able to take a ferry to Deep Water Bay and Tai Shue Wan.
