After receiving a bailout from the Hong Kong government and closing its doors because of the coronavirus pandemic, Ocean Park will reopen on June 13.

Ocean Park will reopen on Saturday, June 13, it announced in a press release on its website.

Children aged 11 or younger will enjoy free admission and get a 'Buy HK$50, get HK$50 free' coupon they can use on skill games, while tickets for adults will be HK$350, and they will receive cash vouchers of the same amount to spend at the park. In addition, the first 100 people to enter the park on June 13 will get a welcome gift. 

Ocean Park to receive HK$5 billion in public funds 

To help fight against Covid-19, all visitors will be required to make reservations online with admission tickets for the date of their visit, and the park will only operate to 25 per cent capacity for two weeks after it reopens, gradually increasing to 50 per cent, while capacities for rides and facilities will be cut by half. The park will have body temperature screenings and a face mask policy, as well as additional cleaning and disinfection at rides and attractions.

Coinciding with the reopening is the launch of a free edutainment programme called Redd's 5 Senses Discovery, which helps children discover the wonders of nature using the five senses. A new animal exhibit, called Little Meerkat & Giant Tortoise Adventure, will open in July, while the Giant Panda Adventure will be temporarily closed, as caretakers observe whether the park's female panda, Ying Ying, is pregnant.
