Attraction details
Fee: Yes
Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: Famous "Swiss mountain" theme park and resort in Shenzhen. Even if you are not into theme parks, this one is not to be missed. Visually stunning, OCT East has been called the “Universal Studios of China” and offers rides, golf, magic shows, luxury hotels, restaurants, spas, and—believe it or not—a scenic Swiss village. Nobody does theme parks like China! Plan to spend most of your day here (though you could spend a week). Noted in Time Magazine 29 November 2007 (opened 7 November 2007).

“Big park for a break”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

OCT East is a new park in Shenzhen and good for a nice break for a Family. The park has a lot and is huge. I like the different Areas, it has a fun park area (with roller coasters etc) and it has also an area about the history and tea plantation. So really a lot to discover. Unfortunately of course most of the time also a lot of People.

“A nice theme park to visit in Daimeisha”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

It is huge place and need at least 2-3 days to completely explore. There are 2 major theme parks: Tea Valley and Knight Valley. I like Tea Valley the most with many beautiful types of scenery including a scenic Swiss village while Knight Valley is more like an Amusement park with rides unfortunately many of these rides are closed. We spent 2 days with our friends and family at OCT East and spent 1 day at each valleys. This is our 3rd time there and like other theme park in China, the place has deteriorated considerably from our last time there 2 years ago.

Pros:
- 1 hour from Shenzhen (Luohu)
- Close to Daimeisha
- Nice and beautiful sceneries
- Huge area and need at least 2 days to complete seeing everything
- I like Interlaken hotel which is very beautiful
- The train ride is very enjoyable but long queue.

Cons:
- Many rides are broken and closed
- Some escalators are out of service and no maintenance
- Many food places had been closed
- Washrooms are dirty and wet
- Some outdoor tables and chairs are broken and no maintenance
- Don’t go there during the weekends or holidays or there will be lots of people

Overall, I do recommend this place and had a nice time.

it's not far away from downtown in Shenzhen, it has 2 different theme park and a few nice hotels. it's very nice place for family for weekend. the only thing is to avoid the Chinese pubic holiday.
