Hey Thrill Seekers,
It may have appeared that last week I forgot to post an interview Tuesday blog… but that couldn’t be further from the truth. I was simply really busy or something..
Anyway todays interview is with top bloke and gaffer here at Orlando Attraction Tickets, Karl Hendrie. Karl has been with OAT from the very start and at the moment is responsible for anything technical for example the website, this blog platform and the app.
Let’s get to know him…

Make a 2017 prediction…: The rise of the half day excursions! This year we have really highlighted how incredible some of the half day excursions are. I would really recommend taking time to visit places like WonderWorks, Gatorland, Fun Spot and Boggy Creek. If you’re lucky enough to catch one of our promos you can get these for free with certain ticket bundles.

Best Theme Park/attraction food of 2016?: Duff beer at Springfield USA, Universal Studios – that’s a food right?
Best Theme Park/attraction tip?: Where possible, get yourself a Fast Pass.
Best kept secret in Florida?: Information is power – the more you know about the parks the better you can plan in advance. Have a look at our Facebook live series (OAT Live) which broadcasts live from our offices every other Thursday – its packed full of information, news and cracking tips to help you plan your amazing Orlando holiday.
