    香港迪士尼扩建反击海洋公园
    (finance.sina.com.cn 2006年07月13日 00:06 东方早报)  为期3天的国际游乐园及景点协会2006年亚洲展会昨日在沪举行,早报记者获悉,为了应对海洋公园的扩 建抢客,香港迪士尼昨日宣布“明日世界”增设三个新景点正式揭幕,同时,其未来将加大投资力度,香港迪士尼 乐园还将在2007年引入东京迪士尼海洋(TokyoDisney-Sea)于2005年落成的“愤怒双神 ”过山车,新的“加勒比海盗”骑乘设施也在规划阶段。
    香港迪士尼开园去年9月12日开幕以前,海洋公园是香港唯一的主题公园。但迪士尼在港的开幕使得海洋公园面 临客源流失的压力。于是,海洋公园开始了扩建计划,其高层向早报记者透露,将于近期启动55亿港元的扩建计 划,在完成扩建后,海洋公园的景点数目将翻一番,达到70多个。
      面对如此强大的对手,香港 迪士尼也立刻予以还击。昨日,其宣布“明日世界”内的三个新游乐设施———“幸会史迪仔”、“驰车天 地”及“ UFO地带”正式揭幕,这也是香港迪士尼自去年开业以来最大规模的新增项目。
      据介绍,“幸会史迪仔”采用了计算机平面动画科技,游客能与其对答、说笑及玩游戏。该项目备有广东话、 普通话及英语三种不同语言。“驰车天地”是一项新增的驾车游戏,游客可以驾乘外型醒目的小型电动敞篷车长驱 直入,在外层空间的未来公路上驰骋。“UFO地带”是互动游乐区,以外太空为设计主题,四周环绕着坠落的宇 宙飞船及不明飞行物等,加上布满会喷水的镭射枪、泡泡制造器、制雾器等装备,充满未来风格的特 别音像效果。
      实际上,除了昨日增加的项目,香港迪士尼乐园还计划在2007年引入东京迪士尼海洋(TokyoDis neySea)于2005年落成的“愤怒双神”过山车,而新的“加勒比海盗”骑乘设施也在规划阶段。未来, 香港迪士尼将继续加大扩建投资。
      根据普华永道“2006-2010全球主题公园和游乐园报告”显示,香港迪士尼乐园期望在实现全年营业的第一年能吸引560万游客。 在这些游客中,三分之一来自香港,三分之一来自内地,剩余三分之一则来自亚洲其他地区,但在开园后的前三个 月中,香港迪士尼乐园接待的游客人数低于预期水平。相反,去年海洋公园游客人数增加6.1%,达到400万 人,创下了海洋公园自1977年开园以来的最高游客纪录。所以,香港迪士尼开始加大内地促销,并高调宣布新 项目的增设,以还击对手海洋公园。沪上部分旅行社反映,近期香港迪士尼在上海大打广告,给予业内优惠等手段 确实有一定效果,加之7-8月是暑期旅游旺季,香港迪士尼昨日又揭幕新项目,相信近期其游客量会有不小的增 幅。而两大香港主题公园的同时扩建也将加剧未来沪上赴港组团游的景点竞争战。

    Here is a very dodgy Google translation of that page. I know the accuracy is dodgy, as the headline translates as "Ocean Park Hong Kong Disneyland extension counter"

    The three-day international amusement parks and attractions Association 2006 Asian exposition held yesterday in Shanghai, Morning Post reporter was informed that in order to compete for customers with the expansion of the Ocean Park, Hong Kong Disneyland yesterday announced the "World Tomorrow," an official unveiling three new attractions, and will increase the intensity of investment in their future, Hong Kong Disneyland in 2007 will be the introduction of Tokyo Disney Ocean (TokyoDisney-Sea) in 2005 "double-God angry" roller-coaster, the new "Caribbean products" designed facilities also planning stage.








    Hong Kong Disneyland Park opened last September 12 before the opening of Ocean Park is the only theme park in Hong Kong. But the opening of Disney in Hong Kong Ocean Park has faced tourists lost pressure. Thus, the Ocean Park expansion project began, the Morning Post reporters that the senior will be the recently launched 55 billion expansion plan, after the completion of the expansion of the Ocean Park will double the number of attractions, reaching over 70.

    In the face of such a powerful opponent, Hong Kong Disney Also immediately hit back. Yesterday, the announcement of the "World Tomorrow," the three new recreational facilities --- "unfortunately Franz Tsai," "gallop car world" and " UFO Strip "official opening, which is Hong Kong Disneyland has opened the largest since new projects.

    Reportedly, the "adjusted Franz employees" using a computer graphic animation technology, along with their visitors, joking and playing games. The project will Cantonese, Putonghua and English three different languages. "gallop car world" is a new driving game, visitors can instant appearance visible small electric vehicle drive straight engineering, the future of the road travelling in outer space. "UFO Strip" is an interactive play zone to outer space as the design theme, around the spacecraft and the surrounding UFO crashes, and will deliver the full laser guns, bubble making machines, fog machines, and other equipment system, a future-style special effects.

    Indeed, in addition to increased project yesterday, the Hong Kong Disneyland is also planned in 2007 to introduce the Tokyo Disney Ocean (TokyoDisneySea) in 2005 "double-God angry" roller-coaster, and the new "Caribbean products" designed facilities also planning stage. Future expansion of Hong Kong Disneyland will continue to increase its investment.

    According to PwC "global theme parks and amusement parks 2006-2010 report" shows that Hong Kong Disneyland expects to achieve annual sales in the first year to attract 5.6 million tourists. In these visitors, a third from Hong Kong and one-third from the mainland, the remaining one-third from the rest of Asia, but in the first three months after the park opened, Hong Kong Disneyland is expected to receive less than the number of visitors level. Instead, Ocean Park visitors increased 6.1% last year, reaching 400 million, a record for the Park since 1977, the highest since the park visitor records. Therefore, the Hong Kong Disneyland began to Mainland marketing, and high-profile announcement of the creation of new projects to hit the opponent Ocean Park. Hushang some travel agencies reflect the recent Hong Kong Disneyland in Shanghai large commercial, trade concessions means to do a certain effect with the summer tourist season is from July to August, the Hong Kong Disneyland has opened new projects yesterday, the volume of tourists will not believe the recent small increases. Hong Kong theme park and two expansion will also increase next Hushang exit group travel attractions competition warfare.

            the future of Macau is in "COTAI STRIP", not the Macau downtown area.

            Venetian Macau is located on the COTAI Strip, but it is still under construction.

            Do u know How old Macau is?

              yes,...i understand the situation at HK Ocean Park..

              That's why they are going to tear it down and rebuild most of the rides/attractions at the end of 2006.(it will take 4-5 years to complete)

                    Ugh, Raging Spirits is a bad idea. If they theme it as well as TDS it will be ok, it's just the ride experience itself is very bland. They could design a different coaster that size and better.

                      Disney must be getting a really good deal on these Raging Spirit/Indy rollercoasters. I have never heard anything positive about them.

                          I have only been on the DLP version of that coaster. I think my head still hurts.

                          Yeah, I'm not excited about that addition. Plus, I'm not sure that a coaster like that will be very popular at HKDL. They need more tame family rides that won't scare the mainlanders. Pirates would be great. So will Small World.

                            A Pirates attraction in HKDL could turn out to be rather interesting. With Dead Man's Chest banned in China because of Cannibal references, will TWDC even try to release the 3rd installment in the mainland? Was Curse of the Black Pearl even seen by Chinese audiences in the first place?

                            If the movies are not making a big impact in China would a Pirates attraction include the Captain Jack and Barbossa animatronics and a Davy Jones projection, or would it be a more "classic" version of the attraction? How would these new elements fit in with the rumoured splash down element?

                            It will certainly be interesting to see what eventuates.

                              So Pirates, Raging Spirits and IASW are rumored to be on the way? Or are they ON the way?

                              If so, good thinking Disney...
