My World#55 Ocean Park Rides (Hongkong)

Truth be told, I like the Ocean Park rides more than Disneyland Hongkong rides. I find the Ocean Park rides more exciting and my friends actually agree with this. So, here are some of the popular rides in Ocean Park, Hongkong.

The Dragon is considered the longest roller coaster in Hongkong. It is one of the rides inside Ocean Park and is made of steel with a maximum speed of 77 km/h with 842 metres of track. The ride lasts approximately 2.5 minutes.

The Abyss Turbo Drop is a 5-second vertical fall from a 20-story high ride.

The gondola ride which is a 1.5 km long cable car system that connects the Tai Shue Wan and the Main Entrance of Ocean Park. The view from this ride is quite beautiful as well as exciting.

Even as a young child I had not been attracted to these rides. I am that chicken. But I do enjoy seeing people go in these rides and of course laugh at them as they yell when the ride goes upside down :)

Oh my world, that first photo looks so scary - I am scared and I am just looking at the photos. I have done roller coasters a few times, but they really scare me!
