Two million people visited Ocean Park in the past five months, the most in such a period since it opened 27 years ago. There were 1.6 million visitors during the same July-to-November period last year. The latest figures were announced as the park yesterday released results for the 2003-04 financial year, which boasted a surplus of $95.7 million, the second-highest on record. Among the 2 million visitors, 60 per cent were from the mainland. It is expected the total number of visitors for 2004-05 will hit 4 million, one of the park's highest figures. Ocean Park chairman Allan Zeman said the theme park would develop further in the next six years, with three hotels and new attractions. Further details will be announced early next year. For this Christmas season, the park will introduce go-karts, a Santa Claus Academy, an ice-skating Nutcracker show and a snowing North Pole Village. The attractions, collectively known as Christmas Sensation, will be launched on Saturday. Meanwhile, 252 additional passenger flights will operate at Chek Lap Kok between Friday and January 3, an 11.5 per cent increase over the same period last year.
