Published: October 20, 2009 at 5:42 PMIt has been almost three long years since me and mine visited Universal Orlando, and with everything being added, Universal is HIGH on my list of places to visit.
We'll be back in either May or September of 2010, and we simply cannot wait.
Published: October 21, 2009 at 12:46 AMCould Universal's free ticket promo during the Super Bowl have anything to do with ticket revenues being down? Just wondering. (My boyfriend, his son and I went there in July, and none of us had to buy a ticket at the gate. My boyfriend and I had won tickets in the Super Bowl promo, and we'd bought a ticket for his son at our local AAA.) I'm not saying this promo would be entirely responsible for a decline, but I'd think it would play some role. Any statistics on how many freebies have been used versus the number distributed?

I had bought us the buy 3 get 7 days deal online. We spent one day at each park, getting multiple rides on the best ones and decided not to use the rest of the ticket. So I guess Universal can count us as a loss in attendance.
