It transports passengers through a 1.3-kilometer tunnel and shuttles between the top and the foot of the Hong Kong Ocean Park in 3 minutes. It can carry 400 people at a time. This is the world’s first two-way mountain railway system with tunnels in a theme park.

The design prototype of the “Ocean Express” is a submarine of a 19th-century explorer. The compartment is equipped with a multimedia system, which broadcasts simulated images through multimedia, allowing passengers to experience the “deep-sea adventure” exploration journey. The films on the way back and forth have different “plots”, such as being attacked by a giant octopus in the deep sea or a volcanic eruption under the sea, etc., bringing different fantasy and exciting experiences to visitors. Therefore, the Ocean Express is not only a means of transportation but also a novel amusement facility. One side is to take a cable car to enjoy the scenery of the Southern District, and the other side is to take a cable car to experience the “deep-sea adventure” journey.
