Hey Thrill Seekers,
I haven’t left you all, I am still here and back for another blog post for you. In case you didn’t already know, or you had forgotten, I am off to Orlando in September! This holiday has been booked for 2 years so it has taken ages to get here, hence why I am so excited!!
Every time I have been to Orlando, it’s been in January however this time round we get to sample Halloween Horror Nights. I am in two minds about this. I can’t stand horror films, I’m such a baby, but there is no way I am going all that way and not doing it. (Plus I don’t think the office would let me live it down)
Universal are slowly releasing more and more snippets about what sort of houses we can expect this year. Some of which have been about before, and some of which are brand new! It has been confirmed that Freddy vs Jason and Jack the Clown will definitely be making a return plus the newest houses to have been confirmed this month are Insidious and Walking Dead!
Falcon’s Fury at Busch Gardens is one of the top attractions on my list of things that I am excited about as I will be the first person from Orlando Attraction Tickets to have been on it and I cannot wait to come back and brag about it (In case readers have forgotten Kelly from OAT bottled it). For any of you that don’t know what Falcon’s Fury is, it’s the newest attraction at Busch Gardens Tampa, standing at 335ft tall it’s not for the faint hearted. Riders are taken up to the top, tilted forwards to face the ground and left hanging for a few seconds before being dropped back down to earth!!! I am definitely a thrill seeker so I for one cannot wait to try this out. I have continuously watched clips of this ride and showed them to my family to encourage them to try it too!
Another attraction I can’t wait to experience is swimming with the dolphins. I have never been to Discovery Cove before so this is a big deal for me. Just being able to see what the dolphins are capable of doing when watching shows such as Blue Horizons at SeaWorld is breathtaking but knowing that I’ll actually be able to get in the water and swim with them is a once in a lifetime opportunity! I am the only person from Orlando Attraction Tickets that has not had this opportunity before so I’m a little behind, although I’m sure when I return I’ll tell them all about it as if they have no idea! I’m so excited that I can hardly contain myself. The countdown has well and truly begun.
If had to choose the top 5 roller coasters that I’m looking forward to the most, it would be tough as I love them all but the first on my list would be The Incredible Hulk Coaster at Universal’s Islands of Adventure. This is my favourite ride and my family and I make sure this is one of the first parks we visit just so we can ride this coaster.
Second on my list would be Falcon’s Fury at Busch Gardens just because it’s new and if I hadn’t already told you, I’m going to be the first person from Orlando Attraction Tickets to ride it! I love trying new things and when it comes down to roller coaster, I get overly excited.
Next would be SheiKra also at Busch Gardens. SheiKra is another coaster that we ride every year as it is definitely a ride for the thrill seekers (which most of us are)
Manta at SeaWorld would be number 4 on my list as it’s just slightly different to the other coasters. Manta holds you head first, face down instead of sitting up right (imagine flying like Superman) and is known for having one of the smoothest coaster tracks ever!
Finally I would have to choose Rip Ride Rock It at Universal Studios. Being able to choose your own individual track to listen to as your gliding around the tracks makes it that little bit more exciting.
I love going to SeaWorld to watch the shows that they put on for the guests. They never fail to amaze me at how they can teach the animals to do the tricks that they can. My favourite show is One Ocean with the whales jumping in and out of the water. Watching the relationship that the whales have with the trainers is absolutely mesmerising!
One show at SeaWorld I can’t wait to watch is Clyde and Seamore Sea Lion High! I have seen clips of sea lions doing shows in different countries and have found them so funny so I will be making sure that my family and I go and watch that this year!
I can’t wait to get back just to tell you all about my experiences.
