Ocean Park has unveiled some of Water World’s 27 attractions, which include a surf rider, 9 dynamic water slides and Hong Kong’s first-ever indoor wave pool.

Ocean Park has invested HK$4 billion in the new water park. “Water World is set to bring out the adventurous spirit in all of us,” said Paulo Pong, deputy chairman of Ocean Park.

“With an architectural design that embraces the natural terrain, it gives adventurers the opportunity to take in the beauty that surrounds our Southern District.

“We’re so looking forward to welcoming everyone to Water World soon.”

Water World features 27 attractions

Water World will be home to five unique zones offering 27 indoor and outdoor attractions, which include Hong Kong’s first-ever surf rider and nine dynamic water slides.

Water World Ocean Park’s zones include Splendid Reef, an expansive open area overlooking the South China Sea. Torrential River is an area for adrenaline junkies, home to thrilling slides.

Thrill Valley will feature extreme slides and freefall experiences, while Adventure Coast is a relaxing zone offering F&B. The Hidden Village includes Hong Kong’s first-ever indoor wave pool, Horizon Cove.

Horizon Cove is sponsored by Manulife. The wave pool features calm, lapping waves as well as powerful double diamond waves, called the ManulifeMOVE Wave.

“We are excited to introduce Manulife as the first major sponsor of Water World, which underpins the strong support received from our Hong Kong community towards this extraordinary addition to the city’s leisure and entertainment offerings,” added Pong.

“We are confident that Water World Ocean Park will be another iconic destination for locals and visitors alike,” added Damien Green, CEO of Manulife Hong Kong and Macau.

“As the first major sponsor of Water World, we are looking forward to seeing residents enjoying its breath-taking features and facilities, and welcoming tourists once travel begins to return.”

Hong Kong lawmakers recently agreed to Ocean Park’s HK$6.8bn ($876m) makeover plans, which involve relaunching the theme park as an open-air classroom and adventure-themed resort.
