It's been over a year since we've been to Ocean Park in Aberdeen - just a 20 minute drive from our house. What fun to rediscover this funky amusement park! Best to enjoy it now - it's bound to get more crowded with a new MTR stop at the doorstep and a hotel going up.
These carnival games still make me grit my teeth and begin speed-walking with eyes averted ... result of years of parental brainwashing about how they're rigged money-drainers. Which is absolutely true. They are. But my adorable husband (bless him!) loves them and embraces the joy they bring. I am so grateful he does. My kids are in heaven! (And they always win prizes!)
|flyin' high - AND THESE VIEWS!|
First thing in the morning (10 a.m.) is still the best best. At 3:00 the crowds were rolling in. A full day of fun with rides, carnival games, live animals, increasing food options, and a vast aquarium. And possibly the roller coaster with the best views on the plant - see link for video.
