We came here with relatively low expectations on a cool, sunny December day and a 2.5 year old high energy boy in tow. We must admit we left very impressed by what we experienced. Everything was clean, modern and well presented. Our boy loved all the figurines, which were very life like, and also all the insects and other animals they had on show. It easily last a couple of hours. You don't need to be in to the Christian theme for it to be a nice time out. Whilst we think it would best suits kids in the 2-5 age range you could bring older ones and still have a very good time. There were also some interesting looking climbing activities that seemed to be connected to the venue, a zip line, and even some kind of flight simulator?? These all looked for much older kids. Generally however we had the feeling that there would be more to do with younger age groups here than there would be if we went to Disney or Ocean Park. The only real criticism would be that the Harvest restaurant in the main complex is very average and if we had our time over again we would have gone down to the beach (clean, quiet, nice sand and with scenic views of the bridges) where there were several restaurants side by side. We went after we ate and did hang out there for a bit so can review it and say that it felt a bit like a quieter, smaller version of Repulse! Better still, because it was in the shade and there were kiddie toys out front of the restaurants, it was very easy as parents to sit there and relax whilst our boy made friends and played in the sand. We were amazed that we had spent all this time living in HK (I'm going on 10 years now) and never heard of coming here. Would say that a small family can spend 1-2 hours at the Ark and another 1-3 hours at the beach, depending on appetite etc.

Worst hospitality I have ever experienced. Thought it was a kids friendly resort. But actually not. There’s no complimentary breakfast for kids. Play area not allowed for resort guests.
Moreover they deducted booking amount for our stay before arrival and again during check out they were asking to pay the whole amount saying pre registration will be refunded after 45days. Total disappointed for foreigners who can’t wait for their refund after flying back

Would absolutely not recommend coming here! Total waste of time and money. The exhibitions are not interesting at all, half of the stuff was shut when we came so the kids couldn't even use it and it's just rubbish how the whole thing is done. It feels like someone had an idea for an attraction, used the whole money on the building and didn't have anything left so just looked through peoples attics and picked some random stuff that people were not using and just chucked it in different rooms, totally random, trying to call it 'activities'.
The 'movie' is rubbish, there is meant to be some special effects but these are - flash light and a little wind (think from the aircon). The content of the movie is pretty depressing too - basically showing all the ways how the world is being destroyed by people and companies but 'don't worry if you will look after the world and our nature we will be able to save it' - that's basically what it is. Kids actually got scared as it doesn't even provide ideas on how to save the world or say that there are actually organisations that help to save the planet but yet shows pretty horrible stories on how it is being destroyed (and I'm not one of those living in a bubble pretending that there is no problem - it's just the way it was filmed and done). what you see on the website about the movie or in fact most activities - pretty good advertising but totally misleading! its not even easy to navigate there with a map as not being a member even more stuff is not accessible to 'just' visitors.
The animals are probably life size but you cant come even close to them to take good pictures and not all of the animals are close to the barriers....you are also not allowed to touch them.
The kids were also told off for eating a CANDY inside the building.....I mean - what is this?
The only impressive thing is the size of the ark but that you can see when you arrive so don't waste your money and don't go in!

This is at Ma Wan, N.T. of Hong Kong and is easy to go by public transportation. There's an ark and there are lots of animals (both real and ornamental) in pairs. Although it's about Noah's Ark as mentioned in the Old Testament of the Bible, it's not just for Catholics or Christians. In fact I would say it's good for the whole family of any background. There are walking trips that you can easily finish in a couple of hours without rush, and there are lots of photographic spots for the newly weds and the grads. Besides, there is a pretty big cafeteria where you can get local refreshments and light meals at reasonable prices, and there is also a very big gift shop where you can buy gift items that are somewhat religious in design but worth collecting such as a small replica of the Ark of the Covenant, a small replica of the pots containing the Dead Sea Scrolls, animal toys, and bottled drinks.

We heard of the ark before our Hong Kong trip. According to the BIBILE-Book of Genesis (chapters 6-9) was built by Noah at God's command to save himself, his family, and the world's animals from a worldwide deluge.

We took a bus at Grand Century Place, Mongkok direct to Park Islands. The ark was built under Tsing Ma bridge. The scenery there was breathtaking and impressive!
We felt touched with the construction of a giant ark in its actual size.

We have a great 4D theater show and 180 degree show about the great flood. Noah's Ark would make a great attraction for those who wish to know about the reality of bible story and would be better for those who come with kids.

We are a family of 4, with two young toddlers. We have been in hk many times so we decided to check out a new place which was Noah's ark. It looked promising on the internet and the exterior was enough to wow any child with the big shop facade. But once we enter, it prove to be a disaster. It was very quiet, like a ghost town. There were hardly any activities for the kids. I think they were happiest when they played at the playground.
And the tickets were very expensive. We paid near 600 hk dollars. We left after 1h and the only redeeming quality was it was situated near the ma wan park (also need to pay) and the park was beautiful.
Definitely not worth coming

We had planned to visit Noah's ark as the website made it seem quite appealing and that there were quite a few activities/attractions in the 'park'.

Transport to and from Noah's Ark:
Firstly we were coming from Lantau island (near Ngong ping) and caught a taxi there. This attraction is situated on a small island with restricted access to vehicles, so the taxis could only take us so far before we had to walk the rest of the way. The island was pretty much deserted, on our walk to the park we came across no other visitors.

The main issue we had was leaving the park. The taxi rank (where we got dropped) has no taxis coming or going (there really is no reason for them to come on the island), no train access either, so we were wondering how we were going to get home. There was literally no one around to ask for help. We saw a bus stop and a few minutes later a bus pulled up, we got on regardless of where it was going, because we didn't want to be stuck on that island for any longer. Luckily for us, it took us to Tsing Yi train station, so we could catch the MTR back to our hotel.

Inside the park:
We paid our admission fee and walked towards the ark garden. It was interesting seeing all the fake animals in pairs scattered around the ark. (This bit I enjoyed). I wish we could have gotten closer to the animals to be able to take pictures with them. Instead, they were scattered in garden beds, which meant you could only look on from a distance.

Then we went inside the ark. It started off interesting with a set up of the animals and how they would be arranged on the ark. There were a few live animals, followed by display after display of different historic pieces of info. There were a few 3D movie viewings relating to the flood that we watched too.

But after the 2nd viewing the staff member directed us back into the gallery space and we could not find a way to exit/continue. We could not go back the way we came as it was the theatre from the 3D movie we just watched. The doors were closed, which meant the gallery had to continue some where right? Wrong, we searched the entire gallery floor and could only find emergency exits and entrance to the theatres. There were no staff members around to ask either. We used an emergency exit to get out as we just couldn't escape it.

After that we checked around the outside of the ark and found the gift shop we then found ourselves wondering what more there was to do. We ended up just leaving.

I feel that improvements could be made to this park (particularly with access made easier) as this was a real put off.

I would not recommend this attraction as I personally found that it was a waste of time.

We stayed a night at Noah's ark to celebrate my son's birthday on the recommendation of one of his friends. I have to say that I did not really like the place much and my kids did not seem to enjoy the activities here very much either.

The room was like a expensive dormitory room with bunk beds - not alot of luxury. This was still OK as it was adequate for our needs. Our problem was with the lack of fun activities. The 3-D movies with their strong religious messages were not really fun and was probably a bit too deep for young kids. Religion and entertainment do not seem to work very well here. The gardens were nothing special. The two-headed turtle exhibit was probably the most interesting part of the park. There is a beach nearby but the sand was rocky and the water was dark from all the passing ships. Both myself and my son had cuts on our feet from the large rocks in the water, which we could not see because of the murky sea.

The breakfast spread was atrocious - just 4 different items plus coffee and tea.

The only positive aspect is the view of Tsingma bridge and the moon at night, which were beautiful.

Tourists should focus their attention and money on the major attractions in Hong Kong instead of coming here.

Visited Noah's Ark Park with my family during the Christmas week in 2016. What to expect from this place:

What's impressive:
- Replica size of the Noah's Ark structure according to the measurement of the Bible.
- Some artifacts / replicas of ancient tools used during the prehistoric time and possibly during Noah's era on display in the museum inside the ark.
- Comes with >20+ pairs of replica size animals to replicate the animals released from Noah's Ark after the flood.

What to expect:
- Slightly far off from other attractions (nearest is Lantau Island or Disneyland).
- Nothing much to see apart from 1 short movie shown in a mini theatre describing the event of the great flood and the other short movie describing the need to protect the environment.
- Limited dining options in the park. No stalls selling small eateries.
- Park size is relatively small. (Should be able to cover within 2 - 3 hours).
- Lower 2 floors of the ark are the museum and theaters projecting the movie clips. Upper floors are convention halls, classrooms for students (special programs) and hotel rooms.

What can be improved:
- Increase the number of stalls / restaurants to provide more options for visitors.

Final verdict:
- Attractions: Good if you like museums.
- Rides: No rides in the park.
- Structures: Awesome!
- Cleanliness: Park is really clean.
- Food: Pretty limited options.
- Staff: Friendly for park staffs.
- Value: Reasonable ticket price for park size.
- Time: Recommended to spend 2 - 3 hours max.
- Overall: Good for family with kids with biblical knowledge as it is educational.
- Likelihood to revisit: Unlikely, should be a one off for me.

I'll start positively - the ark is quite impressive to look at. That's it. Everything that was good about our trip was free, including seeing the ark. It can be seen from the beach and it's actually the best place to get a photo of it. Once you pay the ridiculous HK$ 155 to get in, there's nothing but playgrounds and a museum. The museum may interest some ark enthusiasts but that's not me unfortunately. The surrounding gardens are quite nice but, again, they can be done for free too. We had a nice day here, but that was despite the pointless park entry. I enjoy leaving the hustle and bustle of the city for days out, but there are so many other places that would have been better. Like I've said in the title, don't bother.
