Today though, we wanted to give you the low-down on the nominees for the best new attraction for 2015 at the parks. Remember, you can cast your vote for this category and the others by clicking HERE. Here we've got our favourite new attractions since summer last year...
1. The Orlando Eye
Opened just 3 shorts months ago, The Orlando Eye has already added a little bit of extraspin to thousands of Orlando holidays! We offered tickets to the Eye, SEA Life Orlando and Madame Tussauds attractions absolutely FREE this year with our Orlando theme park tickets and added happiness to hundreds of bookings.
2. Falcon's Fury at Busch Gardens
The much-anticipated Falcony’s Fury opened to the public on September 2, 2014 and immediately staked its claim as a major player in the ultimate Orlando thrill ride stakes. With its 5 second free fall at maximum speeds of 60mph, rides are exposed to 3.5Gs – enough to get anyone’s adrenaline pumping!
3. Madame Tussauds Orlando
If you’re visiting the states, you at least expect to see a few American celebs, right? While we can’t promise that you’ll meet Taylor Swift strolling around the Magic Kingdom, we can offer the opportunity for a photo with her at Madame Tussauds, Orlando! Other celebrities you can “meet” include David Backham, Leonardo DiCaprio and Angelina Jolie!
4. Raptor Encounter at Universal's Islands of Adventure®
The new Raptor Encounter attraction at Universal’s Islands of Adventure landed just 2 months ago and has already proved to be a huge hit with visitors. Get up close and personal with the Jurassic World stars as you remain safely behind those security fences. However, even celebrities like One Direction’s Liam can’t escape the raptors’ clutches…can you?
5. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter Hogwarts Express at Universal Orlando® Resort
Harry Potter fanshave been going out of their muggle minds all year for the new Wizarding World of Harry Potter Hogwarts Express! The new attraction gives guests the opportunity to ride the vintage train between Universal Studios Florida and Islands of Adventure and experience both magical Wizarding World. Any trains that lead to Butterbeer are OK by us.
6. SEA LIFE Orlando
SEA LIFE Orlando burst onto I-Drive in a spectacle of vibrant colour just 3 months ago and guests have been pouring through the doors ever since. Come face to face with 5000 sea creatures from all over the world as you explore the mysterious watery world at SEA LIFE, including the 360 degree underwater viewing tunnel!
7. Heartlake City at LEGOLAND Florida
LEGOLand Florida just got a whole lot friendlier with the introduction of Heartlake City, a fantastic new area based on the popular LEGO Friends series. Heartlake City is great for little ones, who will love the horsey Mia’s Riding Adventure ride spinning riders up in the air and swooshing them gently back down to earth.
