A new themed hotel, which will also open on Nov 16, will start to accept reservations from Oct 20.
Tickets can be purchased through official channels of the ticket offices, its official website and WeChat platform, as well as a number of retailers such as online travel agency Ctrip and Tuniu.
The park has said earlier that a standard day ticket is priced at 330 yuan ($49) and a preferential option at 190 yuan. The prices will increase to 399 yuan and 249 yuan during peak season – all days in July and August, as well as weekends and holidays.
The park features five theme zones, three animal theaters, two high-tech cinemas and an ocean-themed resort hotel. It will also be home to the world's first 360-degree penguin super bowl where tourists can closely observe the daily life of these creatures.
