To tie in with Hong Kong’s the Ocean Park’s ongoing 40th anniversary celebrations, the widely anticipated Ocean Park Summer Splash returns from July 1 to August 27 with a retro theme and a distinctly summery lineup.



 

In collaboration with world-renowned sculptor Ray Villafane and homegrown label LT Duck, the annual summer bash will urge guests to recall fond childhood memories of summertime water fun, sandy beaches and yellow rubber ducks.

    The Applause Pavilion will be transformed into a summer sandy beach adorned with giant sand sculptures. Villafane, an internationally celebrated sculpture artist, will work with his team to build the largest sand sculpture in Hong Kong exclusively for Ocean Park Summer Splash.

     Guests will also have the chance to bury their hands in the sand during the interactive sand workshops with the professional team. For guests seeking pure splashing joy, they will be delighted to find water fun experiences at different summerlimited attractions.

    In its first collaboration with iconic toy brand LT Duck, Ocean Park will open its gates to invite thousands of lovely yellow quackers to sail to the Park for a sun-kissed vacation.

    Founded by local toy tycoon LT Lam, LT Duck is one of most classic representations of Hong Kong toys and has been well loved by local people for decades. This collaboration promises nostalgic quacky fun and ample selfie spots for multiple generations – elderly, adults and children alike. Before leaving the Park, guests can also stop by the limited-time Little Duckie Store and take home some lovely souvenirs to commemorate this funfilled summer.

    To complement the summer experience, guests can savour refreshing summerinspired dishes at Neptune’s and Tuxedos Restaurants. Cute LT Duck characters will also appear on treats such as the jumbo-size LT Duck Trio Lemon Macaron Filled with Fresh Fruits and the generous 35ounce LT Duck Soda Bucket at Aqua City Bakery and selected food kiosks.

    The promotion is offering 15 per cent discount for every Smart-Fun Annual Pass purchased at the Ticketing Office at the Park’s Main Entrance. The offer is valid through June 30.
