Ocean Park in Hong Kong experienced a six per cent increase in visitor numbers in fiscal 2010.

For the financial year to June 2010, the resort received 5.1 million visitors, with more than half – 53 per cent – coming from mainland China.

The visitor increase resulted in revenues for Ocean Park rising 10 per cent to HK$986.6m (US$127m) for the financial year to June 2010.

Profits for the group, however, were down HK$16.6m (US$2.1m) on last year, at HK$82m (US$10.6m), due to interest being paid on redevelopment loans.
