So we went to Ocean Park instead, one of Hong Kong’s older theme parks. My main reason was actually that there is a cable ride there that supposedly offers gorgeous views. Everything else entertaining or nice would just be a bonus.
I will show you the old-school, retro-kitschy look of the place and the actors/characters that walk around in another post. And I will lead you around the attractions in a separate post.
Let’s have a closer look at that cable car ride now.
The cable cars look super cute. Very retro, small, almost egg shaped cabins.
|It was pre-Halloween period, so the cable cars were decorated in style. A pumpkin car;-)|
Ocean Park is huge, huge, huge. And that day it was hot, hot, super hot. In fact it was too hot to set one foot before the other. So we were very happy to do this cable car ride.
It takes you over this hill, alongside the ocean (hence the name;-)), and the vista’s are beautiful!
Beautiful, isn’t it?!
From the next picture you might get the impression that you are alone in your cable car….
…but nothing is less true. In front of you there are at least 25 to 35 other cable cars, hanging as colorful lights on some strings. I find it a really fun sight!
At the end of the line(s), you can see another part of the theme park. It has a big wheel and other attractions.
Isn’t the scenery and location stunning?!
If we look to the right, there are other parts of Ocean Park.
More about these other parts of the park in another post. I really enjoyed our cable car ride. I hope you did too!
