Do you love theme parks? Surely it is such a silly question? Who doesn't enjoy the thrill of a roller coaster as it whizzes you around on it's unpredictable journey, see the elation on a small child's face as they are whisked around Big Thunder Mountain or just wandering around a Disney Park soaking up the magic of the atmosphere. It's got to be safe to say that everyone, even if they don't want to admit it must love something about theme parks?
Here at Theme Park Tourist we absolutely love theme parks, they are our passion. Theme Park Tourist was founded 10 years ago by Nick Sim, someone who was obsessed with everything about Theme Parks and everything about programming computers. His drive to want to share this love of both led him to create Theme Park Tourist.
It's aim is to be your essential source for news, reviews and park guides for theme parks in Orlando, Florida and beyond. We offer a unique perspective on all the latest news from Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando and other parks and resorts, and are proud to deliver some of the most in-depth, well-researched articles about theme parks available anywhere on the web.
Back in 2009, websites looked and were constructed very differently. We have spent the last year redeveloping Theme Park Tourist to make it faster, easier to navigate and even more informative hopefully giving an improved user experience that makes everyone smile.
We have added a Special Offer Watch and Vacation Planning feature to the site in order to make planning the most amazing and cost effective trip to your favorite theme park as easy and hassle free as possible.
Our homepage is now easier to navigate and gives you instant access to our latest top stories and most popular articles including our Latest Weekly Big Update from Walt Disney World and beyond, the latest monthly refurbishments article and TPT's must read of the week which is our most popular article by the number of page views.
We have our latest news, features and special offers listed as well as our new Featured Content box which includes our Top Feature of the Week, Park of the Month and our Legend Library, giving you in-depth stories of closed, classic Lost Legends; head behind-the-ride to see the makings of today's Modern Marvels; set foot into never-built Possibilitylands, and examine the industry's unexpected flubs and failures in Declassified Disaster files that you have to see to believe.
One of our biggest changes is the dashboard for our members. First you need to sign up, it is here that you can choose your favorite parks and then all the latest news, features and special offers are pulled to your dashboard so you can access them clearly and easily as soon as you log on to Theme Park Tourist. You can also comment on articles and have access to our 80+ theme park printable guides, giving invaluable information about rides, attractions and eateries to take with you to the park or to read and make notes on before your trip.
