The editors of Theme Park Tourist would like to wish all of our readers a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
For those of you heading to theme parks over the Christmas season - have a brilliant time and let us know what you got up to. For the rest of you, enjoy the festive season and get planning those 2010 theme park trips!
2009 has been a fantastic year for Theme Park Tourist. The site launched in February, and since then we have posted over 285 news stories and a dozen in-depth features, and successfully launched our Special Offer Watch, New Attraction Watch and Rehab Watch sections.
On top of this, the site's creators Nick and Natalie got married in August and spent a magical honeymoon at Walt Disney World. While we were out there, we were lucky enough to catch the soft opening of Universal Studios Orlando's Hollywood Rip, Ride, Rockit.
We are very much looking forward to 2010 and have big plans for the site - most notably the launch of our price comparison feature. We'll also be heading to a number of theme parks throughout the year, visiting Alton Towers for the launch of Thirteen, heading to Thorpe Park to check out the Saw Alive Horror Maze and travelling to Disneyland Paris next Christmas.
For those of you wondering what 2010 has in store for theme park fans, check out our feature on the 10 most exciting new theme park attractions opening in 2010.
Thanks for your support and see you all in 2010!
