The plans include:
- Killer Whale stadium (!) with killer whale shows
- New dolphin show
- Penguin glacier
The redevelopment plans also aims to be a catalyst for the Aberdeen Tourism Project, which includes new hotels and an entirely new MTR line. The proposed station on the South Island MTR line will enable even more convenient access to Ocean Park, as it will be located just minutes away from Admiralty station.
As usual, Ocean Park’s operating chiefs insist that the expansion and redevelopment should be seen as complementing what Disneyland provides. Apparently, using the word compete between Disneyland and Ocean Park is a big no-no…
The park’s day-to-day operations are not affected by this project and O.P. will remain open during the entire construction.
I, for one, am very excited to see these new plans unveiled and look forward to the renvoation’s completion in 2010.
