Love the idea for a Penguin restaurant, can't believe none of the sea parks in the US have jumped on that given how trendy and popular Penguins are!

I shouldn't say this, but Cheryl and I went to an orthodox Jewish wedding a few weeks ago, and with the separated gender dancing, I kept joking that all the men dancing in a circle together in their dark suits looked like "March of the Penguins".

And Chuck, thank you for bringing Burgess Meredith to life again, if just for a moment.

Gotta agree it was delicious, we saw it only on one stand near Grizzly but it was very popular and was gone everytime we tried to get some. Finally managed to get a box of it on our last day.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

That park has to have the best views of any park anywhere!

That looks like a great park! Hopefully you have to pay before you can have bird contact... ;)

Ocean Park has changed a lot since TPR was there the first time. This better be on the itinerary for 2016!

Don't let this donkey melt you with its laser eyes!

Great trip report, hope you enjoyed it over here. It's a shame you didn't get to ride the Mine Train at Ocean Park, that ride has great views. I haven't actually been on the observation tower yet, there seems to be a ridiculous queue for that even on the emptiest of days. I also love the old Hong Kong section, it seems that the look of old Hong Kong and Singapore seems to be making a come back in popular culture and I can't wait to see it. I saw Kowloon Walled City in one of my brothers games the other day.

Great park. Awesome use of space. The "train" up through the mountain is a must.
And I loved the section called Old China Town. Mostly arcades and things to buy,
but very nicely done and all the trim on the buildings was perfect.

Some great water view shots there, Martin. The park really lends itself to several
outstanding locations for photo shots. And yes, that tower just helps add to the
beauty of the overall location of Ocean Park, etc.

Yeah, it's definitely on the 2016 China Tour, I have no doubt.
