The soon-to-reopen Lantau cable car announced a money-off deal with Ocean Park yesterday. Visitors to either attraction will get a 10 per cent discount when they visit the other. The tourism sector legislator said the promotion, which runs for three months from Monday - when the cable car reopens after a six-month suspension - could cause more problems for Hong Kong Disneyland. A spokesman for the operator of the MTR's Ngong Ping 360 cable car said it was negotiating similar discounts with operators of other attractions, including Disneyland. Disneyland has signed up for a scheme launched by US-based company CityPass to introduce a pass giving visitors discounted entry to city attractions. But it is the only attraction to have confirmed the partnership. Ocean Park has confirmed it will not sign up. A source familiar with the CityPass deal said Ocean Park did not find the offer attractive because Disneyland had negotiated a special commission on each pass sold, causing managers of other attractions to question why they should join a scheme which reduced their earnings but increased the Disney park's. Tourism sector legislator Howard Young said Disney had had similar problems with travel agents who complained that it offered low commission on ticket sales. 'Disney may be at risk of even greater competition now that its rival, Ocean Park, is partnering with Ngong Ping 360,' he said. Disneyland's attendance fell to just over 4 million in its second year, lower than expected and down from the opening year's 5.2 million - itself short of the target of 5.6 million. A Disneyland spokeswoman declined to comment when asked whether it would be harmed by the partnership between Ocean Park and Ngong Ping 360. She said negotiations over the CityPass plan were continuing. The cable car is also negotiating with the Po Lin Monastery on the Ngong Ping plateau about running nighttime services on special occasions such as the Mid-Autumn Festival.
