Cebu Ocean Park

August 17 at 1:24 PM · 

The wait is finally over. (Well, almost!)

We will begin our SOFT OPENING on August 24, Saturday. This means we don’t expect everything to run 100% smoothly as we are still getting ready for our grand opening day. (So please go easy on us as we perfect our guest experience🙏)

Some of our educational displays and activities are not quite ready, and we need our marine friends to settle in before you see them in their full glory. We will be slowly introducing them as time goes by. Due to overwhelming requests, we will indulge you in a sneak preview but really, the best is yet to come.

We will be open at 9 am, so please join us!
Help us get ready for our Grand Opening and be the first to experience Cebu Ocean Park! 🎉

Wonder if "local resident" means citizen?

If not then anything showing residential  address show work.

Buy a Soft Opening Ticket (up to Sept 30), and get to use it a 2nd time from October 1 to November 30, 2019.
Think I might consider a week-day Soft Opening Ticket for my Family.

I think  that a person on a tourist visa (temporary visitors visa) could have a hard time being accepted as a local resident

Agree

Had to go to Seaside today - figured I'd get our tickets for next week while there

1 NO Parking  - mall only

2. Across from mall - Mountain side- exit driver's license entrance  - same where Fuentes MyBus stops cross  - 2 streets  - have guard

3. Asked for  2 tickets  - talking to line guard  - went up to window "he's senior" guard said - "May I see I.D?" showed Phil driver's license   - P1,020 not P1,200

4. Opens at 10 during week - 1st show 11:30 then every 2 hours

5. Add-ons need to be paid inside

6. Had to get immediate refund - took 15 min - tickets must be used same day as purchased -  no sign indicating that - promo one until end of November

Going back probably on Monday - will write full review

Ocean Park in PI, middle of Coral Triangle where the variety of life found on Earth is greatest? Sounds crazy? Yes. No.

Empirical research in my tropical paradise resort town testify the tourists cannot swim, they are dragged out to see the sardine, turtles, younameit after a raft wearing life vests. Shame on adult people who cannot swim :showing-ass:

I prefer to jump out in my beach and see much more sea life than in some Ocean Park tank. No charge

As far as not swinging  - many inner city kids of my generation never learned - same as ice skating - water / snow skiing - shame on adults who can't drive?

I don't mean here, I mean NYC and Chicago, where driving a car or motorcycle is not required due to fantastic public transportation or not having the money to take lessons / buy a car.

I can swim but prefer not to - getting older  - also developed a phobia derived from having  almost drowned twice -  so it's " wade in the water" for me.

Disney had same sort of - swim with Sharks / String Rays - no cage -  at one of their water parks - free - but they were so well fed / tranked up? could step on one and they wouldn't react

Haven't gone yet - Monday  - waking her up at 6:30 to get there by 10 - will see if the park itself is worth the normal rice

At P1,020 for two trips probably worth it.

Yeah - within the last few years - Disney didn't have the amount of precautions for gaters.

Also Snowbirds ain't gonna know what they can do.

Actually, even though it may have happened 15 years ago too, it happened again just three years ago. We were there at that resort the very next week. The toddler was killed, and so was the gator (the next day). When parents are stupid enough to let their toddler play next to the water when there is a sign two feet away warning of alligators, this is the sort of thing that happens. Some people should never have children. Naturally, Disney gave the parents a huge settlement, so I'm sure they will have more children. Maybe next time they will keep heir child away from the water.
