In September 2011 it was reported that Ocean Park (Hong Kong) had purchased former KMB Leyland Olympian fleet no. S3BL459 (FV8281) from a local scrapyard and that it was going to be used for the coming Halloween event at Ocean Park in October 2011. 

"The Last Bus" was subsequently unveiled, using the front section of the bus. A number of spare parts taken from scrapped KMB buses have also been used inside this "Ghost House".
