The Top 5 Attractions As Voted By Orlando Attraction Tickets Customers

Hey Thrill Seekers,

Selecting just 5 attractions from the bevy of awesomeness that spills out of Florida is pretty tricky. Everyone has their likes and dislikes, some like swooping coasters, some like motion rides such as Despicable me! and some just love the beauty of a good fireworks show.

Here at Orlando Attraction Tickets we have a pretty good way of checking which rides and attractions our customer like the most, its pretty simple really, we ask them! When a customer who has booked their theme park tickets with us finishes their holiday we send them a quick email asking them what they thought of the parks, we also ask them to select their favourite ride or attraction. Below are the top 5 most voted for attractions by Orlando Attraction Tickets customers.

1) Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey (votes 153)

Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey - Credit Universal OrlandoLocated: The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade, Universal’s Islands of Adventure.

Type: 3d motion ride.

Description: Most count it as a two part attraction, the first part being the queuing experience which features Dumbledore’s office, the sorting hat and the defence against the dark arts classroom. The second part is the ride itself which has often been described as the Spiderman ride on steroids. Anyone who struggles with motion sickness may not enjoy this ride… I know I didn’t!

2) Expedition Everest (votes 120)

Expedition Everest

Located: Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

Type: Coaster.

Description: Runaway train based around the legend of the Yeti.

3) Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster featuring Aerosmith (votes 86)

rock-n-roller-coaster-starring-aerosmith

 

Located: Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Type: Indoor Coaster.

Description: Guests board their limo car, which lies low on the ground. They stow their small belongings either on the floor or in the small pouch in front of them. Guests pull down their full shoulder restraints, and lift up on them when the Cast Member tells them to complete the safety check. Cars seat two people per row. After the safety check is done and the car ahead of them has finished the launch, the car proceeds around the corner to view a tunnel and a sign above it, designed to look like a highway sign.As they’re moving and waiting, they hear a brief message from the radio DJ, talking about how jammed the freeways are. The highway sign flashes funny messages like: “Traffic bug you? Then STEP on it!” Guests wait for the car ahead of them to finish the ride, and eventually they hear an introduction (varies, can be “We’re only just getting started!” or “Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster”, (said in a deep, growling voice)). After this introduction, Stephen Tyler alternates between each ear the countdown of “5,…4,…3,…2,…1,…!”, as they hear the introduction of the song they’re about to hear. After Stephen reaches between the numbers 1 and 2 from his countdown, guests being to accelerate from 0 to 58 MPH in less than 2.8 seconds. It is in this initial second that the camera takes the photo of the guests. After a long straightway, the car proceeds to do an inversion, and then some less intense maneuvers. The whole ride, there are neon signs on the side of the track, designed to mimic road signs. These signs have messages like “Corkscrew ahead!” The car continues along the not-so-intense track, until it reaches the second inversion (which is a corkscrew). Finally, guests perform a humpback as they enter the VIP parking for the concert. Guests wait in a tunnel at a stop for a moment, then proceed to the VIP backstage area, where they’re greeted by a red carpet and their ride photos.

4) Soarin’ (75 votes)

soarin

 

Located: Disney’s Epcot

Type: Simulator.

Description: Experience the Golden State like never before while “hang-gliding” over landscapes as varied as they are beautiful.

Feel like you’re flying—and even smell what you’re seeing as you skim rolling waves, powdery ski slopes, majestic redwood forests, fragrant orange groves and familiar landmarks like the Golden Gate Bridge.

In the grand Disney tradition, Imagineers pulled out all the stops to make fantasy reality, bringing California to life using a 180-degree IMAX projection dome and aerially captured footage that reproduces the flight path of a hang-glider. Thrill as you’re lifted 40 feet in the air, engulfed in the stunning panoramas, swept from one scenic locale to the next!

5) Transformers The Ride 3D (53 votes)

ÒTransformers:  The Ride-3DÓ OPENING

 

Located: Universal Studios

Type: Simulator.

Description: The ride begins with Evac moving out of the loading station and making a turn. The vehicle approaches the first of thirteen 3D high-definition video screens which depicts Ravage grabbing a canister containing the AllSpark. Evac spins 180° to face the second screen on which Bumblebee is fighting Sideways for the AllSpark which ends up in Evac’s possession. Evac reverses into one of two elevator shafts which ascend to the second level of the attraction. During the ascent Optimus Prime battles Megatron and Grindorchases Evac who is furiously heading in reverse until Grindor’s arm is broken off by a train. Megatron grabs Evac and the two struggle until Megatron breaks a water pipe, which sprays riders with water. Evac enters a dead end pathway before reversing and turning to face another 3D screen, which shows Megatron firing a missile at Evac while continuing to find Optimus. Hot air and fog generate the illusion of an explosion. Evac then heads through the hole in a building which was caused by the explosion. Inside lies Devastator, who is trying to suck everything out of the building. Ratchet and Ironhide cover fire while Evac reverses and escapes the suction. Here the Autobot Sideswipe helps in the battle against the Decepticon Bonecrusher. Devastator returns to the scene alongside Starscream. Evac escapes from Devastator a second time by going through him, but Starscream grabs Evac and throws him across several city blocks before landing on a construction site and smashing into some drums which release clouds of fog resulting in Evac asking if the riders are okay. Optimus Prime and Megatron continue their battle in the construction site as Evac reverses away in an attempt to protect the AllSpark. Starscream appears for a second time but is chased away by two NEST helicopters. Evac then returns to a second set of two elevators. During the descent to the ground floor, Evac forces the AllSpark into Megatron’s chest causing both to freefall to the ground when Megatron grabs Evac. Bumblebee saves Evac from destruction before Optimus Prime congratulates Evac and the riders on their mission.

What do you think of our 5 best attractions? Is your favourite amongst them?

Remember this year Universal launched Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts and the Hogwarts Express which I would expect to slowly creep up the charts, Escape from Gringotts already has 40 votes! Also Busch Gardens released Falcons Fury this month which will certainly acquire votes the longer its open.

We’ll take another look at the voting in 6 months time.

Disney Announce “Frozen” Attraction At Epcot

Hey Thrill Seekers,

You can never say that Disney aren’t in touch with what people want, they snapped up Marvel comics before the Super Hero madness started, they created My Magic+ before Apple launched a very similar service in Apple Pay and of course they produced one of the major surprise hits in the form of “Frozen”.

Today Disney have announced that they have begun construction at The Norway Pavilion in Epcot a brand new “Frozen” attraction. The new attraction, which replaces Maelstrom, will take guests to Arendelle and immerse them in many of their favorite moments and music from the film. The pavilion will also include a royal greeting location where Anna and Elsa can meet guests.

Tom Staggs, Chairman of the Disney Company

“Frozen’s” popular characters will also have a bigger presence at Magic Kingdom Park this holiday season. In addition to the ongoing character appearances, Queen Elsa will use her powers to transform Cinderella Castle into an ice palace every night starting in early November. And Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party-goers can see Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, and Olaf in “Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade.

Although people will be excited about more “Frozen” product I’m expecting to see the internet cry out at the thought of losing the popular Maelstrom attraction.

Disney Park Reviews In 2013

Hey Thrill Seekers,

Back in September 2013 we launched our #Discover pages not only to display information about our partners but also to display your reviews and votes for best attractions at each park.

With 2013 now in the past I thought it might be a good idea to display the end of year statistics for each park, at the end of 2014 we’ll be able to monitor how this has altered and how new introductions this year effect the votes.

Magic Kingdom

Hollywood Studios

Animal Kingdom

Blizzard Beach

The most popular location at the Disney parks was Expedition Everest at Animal Kingdom which got an impressive 55 votes, however Magic Kingdom was the most reviewed Disney park with 90 unique reviews.

In 2014 Magic Kingdom will introduce the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train ride and we’re expecting that to move quickly up the charts.

What Is Disney’s FastPass+ And How Does It Work?

Hey Thrill Seekers,

One of the most popular questions asked regarding our Disney My Magic+tickets is “does it include Disney FastPass+?”.

Disney have a system called and FastPass+which will allow visitors to begin planning their Disney visit months in advance! And yes it is included with your Disney ticket. 🙂

Here are the key points you need to know.

Key Details

  • Disney’s FastPass+ enabled tickets allow visitors to reserve attractions, positions in viewing areas  and fireworks from up to 60 days in advance*.
  • All Disney’s most popular Orlando theme parks include free WiFi this allows Disney’s FastPass+ enabled ticket holders to amend their itinerary by using their smartphone while  in the park.

What can I do with Disney’s FastPass+

Disney’s FastPass+ in essence is a trip planning experience incorporating desktop, tablets and mobile devices for the Disney parks. Visitors who pre-purchase their tickets can book up to 3 ride times per ticket holder per day. You can pre-book these up to 60 days in advance if staying at a Disney property or 30 days if off site. The 3 ride times you select per day must be at the same park, so for example, you couldn’t book  2 rides at Magic Kingdom and 1 ride at Hollywood Studios for the same day. All 3 ride times must be in the same park.

Once you have used your Disney FastPass+ allocation on the day you can then go back on to the app and book some more! – subject to availability

2012 Theme Park Attendance Results

Afternoon Thrill Seekers,

Today see’s the release of the annual Theme Park attendance report detailing 2012’s most popular parks based on footfall. Globally 2012 was a very positive year for the World of theme parks with attendance up by 5.2%.

Here at Orlando Attraction Tickets our interest is obviously North America so we’ve concentrated just on Disney, Universal, and SeaWorld Parks.

Disney

Disney continues to be the World leader up 4.7% on 2011 with a total attendance of 126,479,000.

Magic Kingdom remains the number 1 park in the World with an annual attendance of 17,536,000 up 2.3% year on year.

Epcot welcomed in 11,063,000 visitors in 2012 making it the 6th most popular park in the World up 2.2%.

Disney’s Animal Kingdom is positioned 7th with an impressive 9,998,000 visitors, again up by 2.2%.

Disney Hollywood Studios also up 2.2% on 2011 comes in 8th with 9,912,000 taking Disney’s total Florida footfall to 38,552,300!

Universal 

A very strong 2012 for Universal saw them up globally 7.9% with annual visitors up to 34,515,000.

Universal Islands of Adventure home to Harry Potter, had a strong 2012 with visitors up 4% to 7,981,000 this gave it a global positioning of 10th.

Universal Studios had 6,195,000 million visitors in 2012 up 2.5% on 2011. With the launch of Transformers the ride 3D and the Simpsons expansion, Universal will be looking for a better performance in 2013.

SeaWorld Parks and Entertainment

SeaWorld Orlando ended 2012 up 3% on 2011 with visitors totalling 5,358,000 giving it a global position of 19th.

Busch Gardens Tampa one of my personal favourite parks came in at position 23 up 1.5% with visitors hitting 4,348,000.

Here’s My 14 Day Orlando Theme Park Plan

Afternoon Thrill Seekers,

Making the most of your Orlando Attraction Tickets is the key to any good Florida holiday. Today’s post is my personal guide on how to get the most out of your 14 days Florida tickets.

The guide below is based on our top selling ticket, the Orlando PassPort.

Day 1 – SeaWorld Orlando

SeaWorld is the first park I visited on my holiday and it set me up for the week, it offers a great balance of shows, roller coasters and animals.

Top Tip: You’ve got to give sitting in the “wet zones” at the SeaWorld shows a go, I haven’t laugh some much in ages… remember though they are called “wet zones” for a reason!

You will need at least a day to see the whole of SeaWorld, Orlando.

Day 2 – Universal’s Islands of Adventures

Personally one of my favourite parks, its home to both Marvel and Harry Potter so it will be busy.

Top Tip – Try to do Marvel in the morning and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in the afternoon. People tend to rush straight to WWHP which leaves popular rides like Hulk and Spider-Man with shorter queues.

Islands of Adventure will take more than a day to fully explore it but its well worth returning later on in your holiday.

Day 3 – Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Your poor feet may have taken a bit of a pounding after 2 days of Thrill Rides so perhaps take a relaxing break by sepnding the morning by the pool.

When you feel up to it get yourself down to Disney’s Hollywood Studios, for the brave of heart get yourself on the Twilight Zone of Terror…

Top Tip – Take advantage of the Disney Fast Pass option that comes with the Orlando PassPort.

Day 4 – Busch Gardens, Tampa

There are two ways of getting to Busch Gardens in Tampa, firstly your Orlando PassPort includes free transportation to Busch Gardens via a shuttle bus alternatively you can drive there; usrentacar.co.uk offers cheap Florida Car Hire from as little as £17 per day fully insured which offer more flexibility than the bus.

Busch Gardens, in my opinion is the complete park; it has Thrill Rides like SheiKra and the newly opened Cheetah Hunt on the back drop of an animal fuelled safari, including Lions, Giraffes and Rhinos.

Top Tip: Check the animals out in the morning as the coasters are generally quieter in the afternoon.

Day 5 – Water Park

Trust me your feet will not be happy with you after your great day at Busch Gardens, so perhaps it best to visit one of the great Water Parks available with your Orlando PassPort. You can pick from either Disney’s Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon or head to Orlando’s newest water park Aquatica!

The hardest part is deciding which to visit, perhaps this might help?

Day 6 – Epcot

Time for a bit of education, no not boring school type education but awesome Disney style education. Epcot is a massive 300 acre theme park dedicated to innovation and international culture.

Epcot is divided into two lands they are Future World and World Showcase, there are many highlights but their spectacular fireworks show is a must.

Top Tip – Try and visit Monday through to Thursday as generally its quieter than the busy weekends.

Day 7 – Universal Studios

Where movies meet the real world, Universal Studios is home to some of the most iconic images in film history including the terminator, men in black and the backwards roller coast The Mummy’s Revenge.

Top Tip – You must, must ride the Rip Ride Rockit…its awesome.

Day 8 – Water Park

Its time to rest your feet again, get yourself down to one of the water parks you haven’t visited yet, perhaps the two Disney water parks in one day!?

Day 9 – Animal Kingdom

Its off to see the animals again today at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, remember Orlando gets hot so get to the park early if you like your animals moving.They generally head for the shade during the day… they ain’t stupid… 🙂

Animal Kingdom is split in to seven lands they are Oasis, Discovery Island, Camp Minnie-Mickey, Africa, Rafiki’s Planet Watch, Asia and Dinoland USA. Walt Disney himself was a massive fan of animals and this park is really dedicated to that experience.

Top Tip – Make sure your camera is fully charged and has plenty of space left cos it will be full by the end of the day!

Day 10 – Get yourself down to your final Water Park

Its time to rest again, get yourself down to your final water park and relax…

The rest of your days I would advise revisiting the parks you either loved the most or didn’t get time to completely investigate….

There you have it… your complete 14 day holiday plan… all you need now is a holiday to get over your Theme Park holiday 🙂

regards,

Jamie
