Should I visit Ocean Park or Hong Kong Disneyland

Ocean Park vs Hong Kong Disneyland. At first glance it's a David and Goliath battle, the local favourite against the world champions, however, those asking themselves whether they should visit Ocean Park or Hong Kong Disneyland may find a surprising answer. Winner - Ocean Park Ocean Park is just a better all rounder. The combination of high octane, thrills and spills rides, with superb, and educational, state of the art marine shows and exhibitions is unbeatable. Ocean Park has a pair of superb rollercoasters, a log flume and rapids ride. There are also a number of mid range action rides, meaning there is plenty to keep the family going all day. Disneyland on the other hand has only one rollercoaster and almost no mid range action rides, meaning anyone over the age of ten will be quickly bored. On the other hand, Disney does have a slightly better selection of toddler and young rides, although Ocean Park is also no slouch in this department. Ocean Park's selection of Marine shows are also first class, including shark aquariums, dolphin shows and the superb, sci-fi styled Jellyfish exhibit. Disneyland has nothing to compete with these excellent family friendly shows. One area in which Disneyland does beat Ocean Park is in dining. The dining options at Ocean Park are limited to dodgy hot dogs, while the full blown hotel restaurants at Disneyland are superb. Ocean Park also has no accommodation options, although it's is far closer to the city than Disneyland.
