We're very pleased to reveal an updated version of Theme Park Tourist, just in time for the 2010 theme park summer season.
The aim of the new design is to make it easier for our readers to find the information they need to help plan their next theme park trip. With that in mind, we've pulled together all of the information we gather on theme parks around the world - latest news, in-depth features, new attraction opening dates, planned ride refurbishments, special offers and hints and tips - into a single dedicated guide for each park.
We've also updated our frontpage to display all of the latest information posted to the site, including news, features and special offers. And to help you keep-up-to-date on events in the theme park world, we've relaunched our weekly newsletter to give you a concise summary of new additions to the site.
We'd love to hear your feedback on the new-look Theme Park Tourist, and any ideas you may have for improving the site in the future. If you have any thoughts, please get in touch via our Contact page or using the comments section below.
The full list of updates to the site is given below:
- Park Guides - now include latest news, features, new attraction opening dates, planned ride rehabs, offers and discounts, tips and photos. We'll also be adding additional information such as ticket prices, operating hours and park history for many parks- see the guide for Disney's Magic Kingdom for an example.
- Special Offer Watch - updated to allow offers to be filtered by park and date, meaning users can find offers that are valid during their stay.
- New Attraction Watch - added ability to filter attractions by park and opening date, so that users can check which rides will open in time for their visit.
- Rehab Watch - updated to allow rehabs to filtered by park and date, enabling users to see which rides will be out-of-action during their visit.
Now that the re-design is complete, we'll be focusing on bringing you more features to help you save time and money on your next theme park trip. This will include an in-depth guide to saving money on theme park tickets, along with a price comparison tool to help you find the best deals online.
Thanks for reading Theme Park Tourist!
