Good Morning Thrill Seekers,
Well as promised here’s my second blog post, many doubted I’d continue (I’m looking at you Jamie) but following on from last months post its time to have a look at February here at Orlando Attraction Tickets.
At Orlando Attraction Tickets
February sales were up 13.1% year on year which I’m delighted about, obviously its always good to grow but I honestly wasn’t expecting to beat last years figures, as Feb 2013 was exceptionally busy. One of the major factors in this years growth was a fantastic self funded special offer we ran which for a limited time, offered a $10.00 Universal gift card with every Universal ticket.
February also saw us finally get Kennedy Space Center on Orlando Attraction Tickets, we were very keen to get a direct deal with them which is why the process took longer than we’d have liked. We could of had them onboard a lot quicker by working through one of their exsisting partners but I believe its better for us and our customers that our contracts are direct. Kennedy is already selling well and I’m delighted to have them on the site.
Our average standard delivery times in February, which as per our terms is noted as 7-10 working days, were actually 5-7 days which is really impressive. The structure we worked on in 2013 has certainly helped our team offer some impressive lead times, particularly as they managed more orders this year.
Reviews of our service have been particularly positive in February which has allowed us to continue an overall rating of 9.6 out of 10. The guys are desperate to raise this to 9.7. We use an independent review specialist Trustpilot to gather this information, all reviews regardless of rating are displayed on our dedicated page – Orlando Attraction Tickets reviews.
At the Theme Parks
The major news that just snuck in to February was the announcement that Falcon’s Fury at Busch Gardens Tampa would open on the 1st May. This amazing looking drop tower is one of 2014 major highlights, forget the fact that it makes SheiKra look tiny, its the face down ride position that has everyone talking… not sure I’m brave enough to ride this one.
Another water park has confirmed a new attraction, this time its Wet N’ Wild. Aqua Drag Racer a four lane racing slide will open in the summer and is set to add a touch of friendly competition to the park.
Disney have confirmed that they are adding some enhancements to Magic Kingdom’s Central Plaza area including sculpted gardens, additional pathways, expanded restaurant seating and even a special viewing area for fireworks and other performances.
What about March?
March is traditionally a very busy month and we’re expecting this years to be no different. We’re looking for Universal to increase their campaign to promote the Wizarding World of Harry Potter Diagon Alley and maybe even confirm an opening date.
March may also include a launch with a twist…
