Theme Park Insider's list of official theme park Twitter feeds

Published: June 9, 2009 at 2:15 PM

I use Twitter on my iPhone, and have found it a great way to keep up with many news sources, as well as friends and industry acquaintances. If you're among the dwindling crowd not familiar with Twitter, it's a feed of short messages (140 characters or less) from people you choose to follow. Anyone who registers may post updates, which are read by anyone who has chosen to follow you. Following is not reciprocal, so you don't have to follow people who follow your updates, and vice versa.

In the theme park world, SeaWorld's RealShamu is the king of all Twitterers, with frequently hilarious posts, cute photos and giveaways to fans. But many other parks maintain Twitter feeds, too. Some are meant primarily for writers who cover the parks, but many, like RealShamu, are written for fans.

Here is a list of official Twitter feeds that I follow from several theme parks:

If you follow an official feed from another park (or if you are on the PR staff at a park with a Twitter feed not listed), please post the URL for that feed in the comments. I'll update the list as additions are posted.

And, of course, you can very welcomed to follow Theme Park Insider on Twitter, too.

Not gonna lie ... I find Twitter completely useless and rather annoying. Every once in a while, there is a tidbit that actually may be helpful, such as "5 minute wait for Pirates of the Caribbean", but most of the time I just read arbitrary tripe, like "Mickey's birthday is 3 weeks from tomorrow".

Am I alone on this?

I read through Twitter like I walk through a theme park - a power move through a mass of humanity.

I follow several hundred people, on two accounts, and skim for what looks interesting. And from time to time, I set aside a few moments to cull the list of feeds that never seem to do anything for me.

But the value of Twitter very much depends upon getting that right mix of feeds to follow. That's why I wanted to spotlight the official park feeds, with the thought that some TPI readers might find some worthy.

Also, FWIW, @sixflags is promising to post limited-time discount codes via its Twitter feed. @RealShamu has given some after-hours party invitations to its Twitter followers in the past, too, so following certain parks at this point can be an effective way to score some exclusive discounts and access.

Twitter is a huge time sink trying to find relevant and interesting information. I'd love to get Legoland updates but there's gotta be a more efficient manner than Twitter.
