With its long list of family-friendly attractions, theme parks, and events, Orlando, FL continues to be a popular vacation getaway – especially now that summertime is in full swing.
And with the summer season comes the debut of new attraction openings across Orlando. TicketsatWork.com has all the best ticket specials lined up to deliver special savings for your next visit to Central Florida.
Walt Disney World
Animal Kingdom has begun featuring nighttime entertainment, including projections on the signature Tree of Life and nighttime tours of the savannah where lions, giraffes and monkeys roam. Animal Kingdom will stay open until 11 p.m.
Over at the Epcot Theme Park, “Frozen Ever After,” the highly anticipated ride based on the animated blockbuster film “Frozen,” opened June 21.
The attraction, which takes over for the long-running Maelstrom boat ride, is located in the Norway pavilion within Epcot’s “World Showcase.”
The ride takes guests on an adventurous boat tour through Arendelle, the film’s fictional kingdom featuring Princess Elsa and Anna. If you’re humming “Let It Go” right now, that’s okay – we are, too!
Guests are first transported to the “Summer Snow Day” Celebration where Queen Elsa embraces her magical powers to create a beautiful “winter-in-summer” day for the entire kingdom. Next, guests pass Troll Valley on their way up the icy North Mountain to Queen Elsa’s Ice Palace before their return trip to the Bay of Arendelle.
The nearby Royal Sommerhus, Anna and Elsa’s summer home, opened its doors to guests and the royal sisters themselves will be there for greeting opportunities.
Mako, SeaWorld® Orlando’s newest roller coaster, is now open. The 200-foot-tall hyper-coaster is being billed as the tallest, fastest and longest roller coaster among Orlando’s popular theme parks.
The coaster anchors a two-acre realm — Shark Wreck Reef — that also includes SeaWorld’s existing Shark Encounter attraction, interactive learning exhibits and dining and shopping options.
Mako is the fifth roller coaster at SeaWorld Orlando, joining Kraken, Manta, Journey to Atlantis and the kiddie-size metal coaster Shamu Express.
TicketsatWork.com is now featuring SeaWorld Orlando savings over 40% on 2 Visits!

Just down the way from Orlando, Cobra’s Curse, a new roller coaster at Busch Gardens® Tampa, opens today.
The spin coaster features a menacing 30,000-pound snake king icon and a 70-foot vertical lift that will take riders within inches of its 3 foot-wide eyes and 4-foot-long fangs. During the three-and-a-half-minute ride, the coaster trains speed along at 40 mph down 2,100 feet of serpentine-like track, travelling backward, forward and then spinning freely.
