Tucked away behind the third floor of the New Town Plaza Shopping Mall is a hidden gem: Snoopy’s World. It is the second Snoopy outdoor playground in the world, and the best of all: FREE admission! Though the park has been there since 2000, it is not high on the “must-visit” list in Hong Kong like Disneyland or Ocean Park. Nevertheless, with less than 4,000-square meters, it is still home to many exciting characters for lovers of Snoopy and friends to have a gala time.
Take the East Railway line to Shatin MTR station and take Exit A. Walk through New Town Plaza mall, head out of the glass doors at Level 3 and you’re there!
Snoopy’s World opens from 11am to 7pm daily. I do recommend visiting Snoopy’s World on a weekday to get all your instagrammable shots without photo-bombers.

All around this place, you’ll find life-size replicas of the characters. Visitors can enter through the 4.5-meters tall doghouse with the world’s largest Snoopy figure lies on top. Do say hello to Charlie Brown where he’s watching TV on lounge room furniture, a replica of the illustrations from the comic.
The iconic yellow school bus is located in the center of Snoopy’s World. You can board the bus or take your photo with Charlie Brown, Linus and Sally who are sitting in front of it.
The baseball dugout is a playground obviously popular among the kids, while parents can sit around the bone-shaped benches and take a breather.
The Canoe Ride does not open until 12pm. Though there is no fee for the boat ride, you need to produce a receipt over a certain amount from any shop in New Town Plaza to take the ride. The ride is approximately 3-minutes with special effects and animatronics bringing the world of Snoopy to life.
At the end of Snoopy’s World is the Mini Town Boulevard where there are plenty more Peanuts characters photo opportunities with barber shop, cinema, hospital and bank.
Did you know the community hall in Snoopy’s World is a real Wedding House? Yes, you can book a wedding package for your special day with your favourite childhood characters!
