Ocean Park, Hong Kong, has recently announced that their new Water World will be completed in 2018

Demolished in 1999, the old Water World was cherished by Hong Kong people but they can enjoy their good memories again in the second half of 2018 as Ocean Park has announced the new Water World will be completed in three years time.

At the recent ground breaking ceremony, the company said that the new Water World will occupy 693,000 sq-m – more than twice the size of the previous edition – and will accommodate up to 10,500 visitors per day. The design of this attraction features a series of terraced platforms along the hillside facing the South China Sea, blending with the natural terrain with extensive vegetation and green roofs. As it is along the hillside, the gradient enables Ocean Park to build gigantic water slides without extensive supporting structures.

To blend indoor and outdoor areas, a large operable pivot door design on the curtain wall system will be constructed to provide natural ventilation. Water World will have 27 indoor and outdoor facilities in total including a surf rider, two wave pools, nine water slides and one infinity pool.
