By Ocean Park Hong Kong on July 1, 2019
KUALA LUMPUR, 28 June 2019 – Ocean Park Hong Kong is crossing over with popular Japanese anime series One Piece to bring the largest ever One Piece-themed interactive event to Hong Kong – the Ocean Park Summer Water Battle presented by SKECHERS. For the first time ever from 13 July to 1 September 2019, the Waterfront Plaza at Ocean Park Hong Kong will transform into an exhilarating water battle zone where guests will face off against each other in classic scenes from One Piece. Not only can kids and adults join the Straw Hat Crew on their summer adventure, they can also go on gourmet voyage and take-home memorabilia infused with One Piece snippets. Plan your trip to Hong Kong now to join in the fun!
Timothy Ng, Executive Director, Operations and Entertainment of Ocean Park Hong Kong, said, “Water games have always been Ocean Park’s most loved summer activities. We are thrilled to partner with the immensely popular One Piece to stage the Ocean Park Summer Water Battle presented by SKECHERS and throw a cool summer bash inspired by the Straw Hat crews’ battles with the Marines. We hope to attract One Piece fans from all over the world to come visit Ocean Park Hong Kong for a summer filled with passion and dreams.”
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of One Piece, Luffy and the Straw Hat crew members are heading to the Park. Adding to the excitement, fans can relive their epic adventures in seven encounters and photo spots at the Ocean Park Summer Water Battle presented by SKECHERS. Highlights include the Thousand.Sunny Ship by the Park’s lagoon, the wanted posters, a super-size fountain in the shape of Luffy’s signature straw hat, and more. Even better, guests can grab their water guns and join Luffy’s crew to fight against the Marines in a throwback to the Battle of Marineford, harnessing the incredible power of their friendships to dodge all kinds of water cannons and traps.
At the Park’s Whiskers Harbour, kids will be amused by various One Piece-themed water attractions including a foam party zone, straw hat water-mist arches, super water curtains and fountains, as they battle against other kids and take lots of pirate-inspired photos with family and friends.
The Straw Hat crew’s dream is also about staying fueled. Be the first to savour the time-limited One Piece Summer Adventure Feast at The Terrace Café. The appetizer Soul King – Brook features a crispy deep-fried shrimp cake with Brook’s face on top and greens arranged in the shapes of music notes, which is already a nod to the protagonists. This will be followed by the creamy seafood chowder, Departure from “Grand Line”, to mark the beginning of a delightful sea voyage. For the main course, fans can choose between Powerful Franky and Supernovas Luffy. Franky’s strong punches have left a deep trench in the tomato seafood risotto, while Luffy’s signature straw hat has morphed into a potato croquette atop tender and juicy wagyu beef cheeks braised in red wine. The dessert Wanted Luffy is made up of a charcoal chocolate mousse cake served with a butter cookie with Luffy’s wanted poster imprint. The scrumptious feast is set to leave guests a full stomach and be applauded by those who love eating as much as Luffy. Don’t forget to try out the One Piece-themed desserts at Aqua City Bakery for even more photo-worthy treats!
During the Ocean Park Summer Water Battle presented by SKECHERS, fans can also look out for the exclusively designed Luffy Themed Topper Cup and Chopper Themed Topper Cup, as well as the cute Chopper Popcorn Set available at designated food kiosks in the Park. Meanwhile, to enjoy the company of their favourite One Piece characters anytime and anywhere, fans can purchase limited-edition merchandise including T-shirts, summer clothing, waterproof phone cases and exclusive One Piece gifts at the Park’s retail shops and game booths while stocks last.
In addition to water attractions, Ocean Park Hong Kong is also adding a brand-new technology-enhanced guest experience. Following the launch of Hong Kong’s first ever virtual reality (VR) roller coaster, this summer the Park will unveil Hong Kong’s first ever VR free fall ride, The Abyss – VR Space Voyage. Once players put on VR headsets for this ride, they will be surrounded by the breathtaking views of outer space as they enter into an adrenaline-pumping free fall to reach terminal velocity. Thrill-seekers be sure to watch out!
