Ocean Park to Host Hong Kong’s Largest-ever Free Speed Dating Party Recruiting 100 Single Individuals to Board Cable Car for Romantic Chinese Valentine’s Day


(Hong Kong – 25 January 2013) For the upcoming season of romance, Ocean Park is making theme park history by hosting Ocean Park Extraordinary Speed Dating Party, Hong Kong’s largest-ever FREE speed dating event on Chinese Valentine’s Day (Sunday, 24 February). Dr. Allan Zeman, Chairman of Ocean Park, will channel the matchmaking magic of the Chinese mythical character of Yue-Laou for 50 pairs of single individuals – all Ocean Park fans and supporters of animal conservation – offering them the sweetest Chinese Valentine’s Day at the Applause Award-winning theme park.

Partnering with a dating company for its first-ever speed dating event, Ocean Park is recruiting over 100 single individuals who will have the opportunity to meet their other half through fun and engaging activities. During a one-hour period, participants, separated into groups irrespective of nationality, will shuttle back and forth on board Ocean Park’s iconic cable car, getting to know each other against the romantic backdrop of the South China Sea. Groupings will change for each ride on the cable car, giving participants a chance to meet different people until they have found their match. Ten pairs of love struck participants will then take part in a race to complete secret challenges at five romantic spots within Ocean Park. 

Single individuals interested in taking part in this creative event may apply through the official website or hotline of Speed Dating FEVER (www.sdfever.com.hk / Tel: 2961-4632) on or before 15 February (Friday). Participants must be fans of Ocean Park and supporters of animal conservation. After a round of phone interviews, over 100 qualified single individuals will be selected to participate in the unique speed dating event at Ocean Park for free on 24 February (Sunday). The first three couples who successfully complete the challenges will receive prizes including Ocean Park SmartFun Annual Passes, animal encounter programmes and in-Park dining coupons. Other participants will also receive an Ocean Park Valentine’s souvenir. Successful applicants will need to pay a HK$300 deposit, which will be fully refunded after the event; deposits of absentees will be donated in full to Ocean Park Conservation Foundation, Hong Kong, to support wildlife conservation.
