3 amusement parks to enjoy in Hong Kong

Looking for fun in Hong Kong? Ready to spend a day focusing on nothing but which ride to take next? That sounds like a day at an amusement park. Hong Kong has those, too.

Ocean Park, the largest theme park in Asia, is also the original Hong Kong amusement park. There’s also a marine mammal park, an oceanarium, and an animal theme park. If you can handle Ocean Park’s rollercoasters’ dragon twists and turns with corkscrews and full 360-degree loops, try your nerves on the Hair Raiser, one of a dozen floorless roller coasters in the world. The ride hits 88 kilometers an hour, and the G-force tops out at four. With 7.8 million visitors, the park ranked 13th in the world by attendance in 2014.

Hong Kong Disneyland

With Disneyland, you know you can expect high quality, and while the Hong Kong park that opened in 2005 is the smallest of the world’s Disneylands, it does deliver. See Tarzan’s tree house in Adventureland, or take a stroll to Sleeping Beauty’s castle in Fantasy­land. If you’d rather take a glimpse into the future, Buzz Lightyear’s ride will take you to infinity and beyond. You probably won’t get scared, but you will have fun.

Snoopy’s World

Snoopy’s World isn’t really a huge theme park, since it’s an outdoor playground on the third floor of the New Town Plaza in Sha Tin. But if you’re a fan of Snoopy, Charlie Brown and the rest of the Peanuts gang, you’ll enjoy a visit there. There’s a canoe ride for smaller kids, and if you feel like talking to somebody, Lucy the Psychiatrist is always in.

For another kind of a wild ride, you can also get married at Snoopy’s World.
