Top Chinese tourist attraction, Ocean Park, has won three China Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (CAAPA) awards at the first Ferris Awards Presentation Ceremony.
Ocean Park landed “Most Popular Theme Park”, “Best Innovative Event” and “Leader of the Chinese Theme Park Industry” at the event, held in Beijing during the China Cultural Tourism Industry Summit Forum 2015. The “Best Innovative Event” award recognised its signature annual event, Halloween Fest.
Mr Matthias Li, Deputy Chief Executive of Ocean Park and winner of the “Leader of the Chinese Theme Park Industry” award, said, “We are very honoured to have received awards alongside other superb theme parks in China. Our ground-breaking seasonal events, dedication to conservation and culturally relevant positioning are always our keys to success. While providing exceptional theme park services, we stay true to our conservation, education, and entertainment pillars in connecting our guests to nature. Therefore, the award ‘Distinguished Industry Leaders’ is not presented just to me, but also to our management team and all the staff of Ocean Park. We are grateful for all tourists’ support and will continue our hard work to provide memorable experiences that combine entertainment with education.”

The Ferris Awards have been created to recognise and celebrate outstanding performance and contribution in the previous year.
