Interview With Nohemi Romero From WonderWorks

Hey Thrill Seekers,

It’s interview Monday (I’m aware that’s not a thing) and we’re continuing our season of interviews with Nohemi from WonderWorks. You may be more familiar with WonderWorks as the “upside down museum” on International Drive.

Lets get stuck in and find out about her and how 2016 turned out.

wonderworksName: Nohemi Romero
Company: WonderWorks
Position: Sales Manager

GETTING TO KNOW YOU

If you could have an endless supply of any food, what would you get? Shrimp Tempura Sushi is my favourite! I will take any version of it.

If you were an animal, what would you be and why? I would be a rabbit, as we are energetic, cuddly and loved by everyone.

If someone made a movie of your life would it be a drama, a comedy, a romantic-comedy, action film, or science fiction? Everyone would say it is a romantic comedy as I love, love and I am a blast. And I would totally agree!

Complete the sentence; I was once mistaken for . . . Salma Hayek, but not the Frida Kahlo version.

If you had your own talk show, who would your first three guests be? The Obamas and Adele. They are all super fun and serious which reminds me of myself.

WORK

What was the highlight of 2016 for your company?:  WonderWork’s added a Dr. Seuss Unorthodox “Taxidermy” Art Installation which is super whimsical.

What can we expect from your company in 2017?:  A new inversion tunnel with a see-through walkway that will enhance your experience.

Make a 2017 prediction…:  It will be a crazy year! Really unpredictable I would say.

Best Theme Park ride/attraction of 2016?: Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley at Universal is amazing.  You feel as though you have been transported to the book or movie.

Best Theme Park/attraction food of 2016?:  Butter Beer! Is that considered food??

Best Theme Park/attraction tip?:  Bring water bottles with you to the parks as they are allowed and to purchase them at a theme park it usually is an arm and a leg.

Best kept secret in Florida?:  The Outta Control Magic Comedy Dinner Show; It’s the show we have nightly at WonderWorks. Many people do not know we have a dinner show, they think we are just an attraction. When they finally find out and come they are surprised on how great it is. You will be laughing hysterically and your belly will be about to explode by how much food and alcohol you will consume.

A cracking interview from Nohemi and I’d like to take the opportunity to thank her for getting involved. I can’t wait to try the new inversion tunnel. You can purchase WonderWork Tickets directly from Orlando Attraction Tickets for as little as £22.00.

Do You Really Mean All The Parks?

Hey Thrill Seekers,

A lot of our customers ask for a ticket that includes ‘all of the parks’ without realising how many parks there actually are. Ticket purchasing can become quite complicated when you aren’t aware of all the parks and attractions, especially if you’re a first timer. We have ‘The Big Three’, Disney, Universal and SeaWorld but there is so much more!

Let’s take a look at the big three first.

Walt Disney World actually consists of 6 parks in total, 4 theme parks, Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios and 2 water parks, Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach. All of our Disney tickets include all 6 of these parks, we do not offer single day or single park tickets.

Disney’s Magic Kingdom is the park to explore lands of endless enchantment, where your fantasy becomes a reality. 

Disney’s Epcot allows you to travel around the globe, under the sea, into outer space…and beyond!

Disney’s Animal Kingdom will amaze you, behold the magic of nature with rare animals and world-class entertainment.

Disney’s Hollywood Studios puts you smack bang in the middle of the action, take center stage in the world of movies, television, music and theater.

Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon is a storm ravaged tropical bay while Disney’s Blizzard Beach is a melting ski resort.

Disney

Moving onto Universal now with their 2 theme parks, Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure. These 2 parks are joint together using The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and the Hogwarts Express. You must have a hopper ticket to ride the Hogwarts Express, which is of course, what we offer! 🙂

Tip: Ride the Hogwarts Express both ways to encounter two completely different experiences. 😉

Universal Studios is where you can jump into the action of your favourite movies and TV shows’. At the back of the park you will find yourself in Diagon Alley.

Universal’s Islands of Adventure is where you can live the adventure. Towards the back of this park you will be in Hogsmeade.

Universal’s Volcano Bay is the newest park which is due to open on the 1st June 2017. Water is life. Life is joy. 

universal

SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment have a total of 4 parks including SeaWorld Orlando, Aquatica, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay and Discovery Cove.

SeaWorld Orlando has a mixture of thrill rides, family rides and animal interactions. SeaWorld rescue a lot of animals from the wild to treat them and then release them back into the wild.

Aquatica is SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment’s water park which is themed to the Southern Pacific and features Australian and New Zealand mascots that you can spot relating to each attraction.

Busch Gardens Tampa Bay is about an hour out of Orlando but so worth the journey! The 19th century African themed park is also, like SeaWorld, a mixture of the thrill and family rides as well as the animal encounters. All of the SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment is suitable for all the family.

Tip: We offer these parks at an amazing 3 parks for the price of 2 offer which entails free parking!

Discovery Cove is an amusement park where guests can completely relax with an all inclusive day and have the choice to ‘talk, touch, play and swim with bottlenose dolphins’.

There are 2 Discovery Cove packages available, 1 including 14 days into SeaWorld and Aquatica and our Ultimate package including 14 days into SeaWorld, Aquatica and Busch Gardens.

Tip: You can make the most of the free parking with our Ultimate Package as well. 😉

Interview With Katie Seay From WonderWorks & The Outta Control Magic Comedy Dinner Show

Hey Thrill Seekers,

Our series of interviews has proved to be quite popular this year. Today’s interview is with Katie Seay from WonderWorks & The Outta Control Magic Comedy Dinner Show. If you haven’t visited WonderWorks its a great experience for all the family, it was the place I first lay on a bed of nails!!! Not something you can say about many places.

ocds-lg

Name: Katie Seay

Who do you work for?: WonderWorks and The Outta Control Magic Comedy Dinner Show

What’s been the highlight of the year (2014) for your company?: We did a lot of renovations to our Orlando property this year and added a great new exhibit: The Astronaut Training Challenge – a four-person gyroscope.

What’s been the highlight of the year (2014) for you?: Attending World Trade Market in London and getting to meet all of the great people from our British market. It was wonderful to educate people on WonderWorks who hadn’t had a chance to come over yet, and just to see their enthusiasm about everything we have to offer.

What can we expect from your company in 2015?: We are always looking for fun new exhibits and opportunities to attract visitors. You can definitely expect some great things to come in 2015.

Make a 2015 prediction…: Orlando Attraction Ticket’s top selling product will be WonderWorks and The Outta Control Magic Comedy Dinner Show!!

Best Theme Park ride/attraction of 2014?: Astronaut Training Challenge for sure! This gyroscope rotates and spins in different directions, allowing the riders to experience a feeling of weightlessness and the roll and tumble associated with outer space.

Best Theme Park/attraction food of 2014?: The fresh, made-from-scratch, pizza at The Outta Control Magic Comedy Dinner Show!

Best Theme Park/attraction tip?: Relax and have fun! Sometimes planning for a day of fun can get stressful. We can’t always predict the long lines, crowds of people, or weather – so it’s important to remember you are on vacation and here to have fun!

Best kept secret in Florida?: The Outta Control Magic Comedy Dinner Show. This show has been ranked at the top among dinner shows for years, and it amazes me that some people still don’t know that WonderWorks has a dinner show! Our magician, Tony Brent, is wonderful and will have guests rolling out of their seats with laughter (and embarrassing a few on the way as he pulls the audience on stage to help out with some of his tricks!). Pair that with unlimited pizza, salad, popcorn, dessert, beer and wine, and it’s sure to be one of the highlights from your vacation.

We’d like to thank Katie for taking the time to talk to us. You can purchase WonderWorks and The Outta Control Dinner Show from Orlando Attraction Tickets and I’d definitely urge you to consider it.

Smiles included…

Jamie
