    HKDL might announce expansion plan soon

    HKDL might announce its expansion plan soon because Hong Kong Government has given its full support for Hong Kong Ocean Park to build 3 new hotels.

    The hotel tendering process will start this year and construction is estimated to begin in 2009 and 3 new hotels (1300 rooms) to be completed and open to public around 2011 or 2012. There will also be facilities for conference, exhibitions and meetings etc.

    MTR has just announced the new South Island line development, a new MTR station will be located just outside the entrance of Hong Kong Ocean Park. The completion date for MTR South Island Line is estimated to be around 2014 or 2015.

    (Hong Kong – 28 February) Ocean Park today presented to the Southern District Council (SDC) an update of the Master Redevelopment Plan, as well as the proposed hotel development plans within the Park. The hotels will each have their own distinctive theme, and Ocean Park will invite developers to invest and participate in the design, construction and operation of the hotels. The hotels, expected to open from 2011/12 onwards, will further enhance the appeal of Ocean Park as a key vacation destination for both the locals and tourists alike.
    This meeting follows the decision made in January by the Task Force on Redevelopment of Ocean Park and Tourist Attractions in Aberdeen, chaired by the Financial Secretary, John Tsang, to support in principle the building of three hotels in Ocean Park.


    According to Ocean Park’s chairman, Dr Allan Zeman, the proposed hotel development is an important supporting infrastructure to enhance the tourism appeal of both Ocean Park and Hong Kong, through diversifying guest experiences, and prolonging their length of stay. “Most major theme parks today include themed accommodation within the park boundaries to anchor and enhance guest stay, and our Master Redevelopment Plan has always envisaged a standalone hotel development,” he added.


    The proposed developments will cater to the needs of different market segments, and will include Ocean Hotel, a 3 to 4 star hotel near the Entry Plaza, Fisherman’s Wharf, a 4-star hotel at Tai Shue Wan, and a deluxe 5-star Spa Hotel at the Summit area.

    last sunday, the WDC CEO Bob Iger came to HKDL secretly, to check the progress of IASW.
    I think he met the HK gov in this trip also, to talk about the expansion.

    How about speeding up the process of building the rest of the attractions? Its takes practically forever for HKDL to become a full park. With all the developments that's happending in Ocean Park and in Macau, there's definitely ought to be a bigger push.

    Hopefully with the government giving its support, this will be the push HKDL needed to make it a true tourist destination.

    Re: HKDL might announce expansion plan soon

    Good news: Ocean Park's expansion plan so far is looking quite over exaggerated. Most of the 'new' rides are simply overlays, and all I've seen of their construction is deforestating their mountain, building this gigantic concrete block on a mountain side, and tearing down a nearby flat.
    I think HKDL will have to announce their expansion plan this year or suffer a lot. I'm hoping they will.

    Even the City of Guangzhou is planning to spend RMB 5 Billion for a New Ocean Park In the Town of Panyu (Panyu Ocean Park) to be open in 2010.

    Its comon knowledge that Disney are going to be expanding Hong Kong Disneyland in the near future. Only thing we are not sure about is how much of the bill the HK Govement will pay and how much Disney will cough up.

    The concepts for expansion are very original.
