Hong Kong’s Ocean Park has reported that three million visitors have ridden Ocean Express since it opened 10 months ago.

Sarner, the global theme park design company, was responsible for the creative and technical implementation of Ocean Express, which remains the first and only themed funicular ride in the world.

"Ocean Express is not just a ride, it’s a fully immersive show that has already captivated and entertained three million visitors whilst transporting them from the Waterfront to the Summit at Hong Kong’s Ocean Park," Sarner said in the wake of the announcement.

Once guests embark the submarine-like carriages, they are transported below sea level and fully submerged deep into the ocean through the use of underwater visuals and sophisticated audiovisual technology.
