Introduction

Ocean Park gives many good memory to locals in Hong Kong. It is the second amusement park. Lai Chi Kok Amusement Park was the first amusement park. Unfortunately, the business was closed down because of running out of money. I was an unlucky one by not visiting it and took a photo of it!
