Ocean Park Hong Kong brings guests to outer space with its latest attraction, the city’s first-ever virtual reality (VR) free-fall ride.
Using VR headsets, The Abyss VR Space Voyage transports players outside the planet surrounded by breathtaking views of outer space as they enter an adrenaline-pumping free fall during their mission to Saturn’s largest moon—Titan.
The story is set on Earth facing irreversible environmental issues, such as climate change, that lead to the exploration of a new habitable place in the universe.
As members of the “Ocean Park Mission Titan” team, guests will be launched into space to investigate Titan. A mission briefing video featuring world-renowned aerospace engineer Dr. Aprille Joy Ericsson and pre-trip interactive games offer insights into space and the challenges of space travel, furthering the park’s long-standing mission of providing world-class "edutainment" experiences.
After embarking on a trip to outer space, guests can join an exhilarating water battle as the park collaborates with iconic Japanese anime series One Piece, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary, to bring the Ocean Park Summer Water Battle presented by Skechers.
Luffy and the Straw Hat crew members will be in Hong Kong from July 13 to September 1 to transform the Waterfront Plaza into a water battle zone where guests can recreate classic scenes from One Piece.
Armed with water guns, guests can join Luffy’s crew to fight against the Marines in a throwback to the Battle of Marineford, harnessing the incredible power of their friendships to dodge all kinds of water cannons and traps.
“Water games have always been the park’s most-loved activities during summer season in Hong Kong. We are thrilled to partner with the immensely popular One Piece to stage the Ocean Park Summer Water Battle presented by Skechers and throw a one-of-a-kind bash inspired by the Straw Hat crew's battles with the Marines. We hope to attract One Piece fans from all over the world to join us on an adventure filled with passion and dreams,” said Ocean Park Hong Kong operations and entertainment director Timothy Ng.
To complete the experience, guests may check out awesome photo spots including the Thousand Sunny Ship by the park’s lagoon, the wanted posters, and the mega-sized fountain in the shape of Luffy’s signature straw hat.
In addition, an exciting array of One Piece-themed food items and limited-edition memorabilia infused with One Piece snippets will be on offer at designated restaurants, food kiosks, and souvenir shops,
At Whiskers Harbour, kids can enjoy and take a break from the summer heat at various One Piece-themed water attractions including a foam party zone, straw hat water-mist arches, super water curtains and fountains.
