Hey Thrill Seekers,
April is always one of the busiest months of the year, for us it was particularly busy as Theme Park Tickets Direct had its first full live month. With a different emphasis than Orlando Attraction Tickets, TPTD offers consumers a “twist” when compared to traditional ticket sites. April’s major twist was the inclusion of Kennedy Space Center tickets, which proved to be popular, we thought it might be.
As a group we were up year on year which to be honest I didn’t expect, mainly because April 2013 was a monster month and I was quietly delighted that we managed to better it, not by much but it was still a rise.
April 2014 saw us smash two internal records, firstly on 21/04/14 we recorded our busiest ever single day with a record number of orders and revenue. The second record broken was for this blog, which had its single biggest day in terms of unique visitors and traffic on the 28/04/14, it was helped massively by Busch Gardens Falcon’s Fury POV video.
In regards to delivery times, the guys and girls did us proud, April is notorious for late bookings which always adds additional pressure to the team but I’m happy to say they managed an average dispatch time in April of 3-4 days for our standard free delivery and a 1 day average for the express option.
Reviews of our service were also very positive and we maintained our 9.6 out of 10 average. We’re still pushing for the elusive 9.7…
At the Theme Parks
It was pretty quiet from the theme parks in April but thats to be expected considering its one of the busiest times of the year. What we did get was bombarded with video content in the forms of the aforementioned Falcon’s Fury POV from Busch Gardens, a little video reminder of Universals hugely popular Halloween Horror Nights and Disney dropped their own first person video of their highly anticipated new ride, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train Coaster.
May looks to be the big month for park news where we expect the launch of Ihu’s Breakaway Falls, Falcon’s Fury and Disney’s Seven Dwarfs Mine Train Coaster…
So until next month,
