After HK DisneyLand's price hike, Ocean Park's entrance fees will also increase by over 10%

A few months ago, HK DisneyLand announced a price hike. A few days ago, Ocean Park announced an increase of over 10% in entrance fees, effective Jan 1st, 2016.

There will be a two-month grace period for local residents. The current SmartFun Annual pass prices will remain unchanged. Ocean park will keep his free year-round entry for senior citizens and people with disabilities.

Welcoming its 39th anniversary, Ocean Park will extend birthday free entry to the entire birthday week during January 2016 and offer 30% discount on admission tickets for up to four companions. 

Under the new pricing structure taking effect on 1 January 2016, daytime admission ticket for adult and child (aged 3-11) will be HK$385 and HK$193 respectively, amounting to an increase of HK$40 and $20. Hong Kong residents can enjoy the current admission prices (HK$345 and HK$173) until 29 February 2016. Remaining unchanged is the pricing for SmartFun annual passes, which consistently hold a unique appeal to local families.

Mr. Leo Kung, Chairman of Ocean Park, said, “The Board of Directors and Management have worked hard to minimise the price adjustment, which is driven by the need to provide financial support for increasing operating expenses, necessary capital investments to enhance guest experience, and ongoing debt servicing obligations. As a self-financing, not-for-profit organisation, our pricing must be sustainable for our operation and growth while remaining competitive against comparable world-class facilities.”

As a leading conservation advocate in the region, Ocean Park donates a portion of its admission revenue and panda merchandise sales proceeds, a percentage of revenue from F&B and animal encounter programmes, plus the entirety of admission revenue from its annual Conservation Day to Ocean Park Conservation Foundation, Hong Kong (OPCFHK). During the 2014/15 fiscal year alone, the Park donated HK$13.3 million to the OPCFHK, which not only funds critically needed conservation studies and projects across Asia, but also support cetacean stranding rescue and response, the conservation of local species such as horseshoe crab and seahorses, and more. Ocean Park also directly contributes to conservation by making available its animal care expertise for government efforts and spearheading initiatives such as its 3-year Blue Matters campaign to promote public awareness and inspire everyday action.
