Thank you for helping Theme Park Insider reach 10 million views

May 7, 2019, 7:48 PM · Thank you to everyone who reads, watches, or follows Theme Park Insider. We just passed a big milestone this week, so I wanted to share that with each of you.

One of our videos has just passed 10 million views on YouTube! It's our on-ride video of the Krakatau Aqua Coaster at Universal Orlando's Volcano Bay.

This same video has nearly nine million views on Facebook, so we are closing in on 20 million views overall for this one.

Of course, this is just one of hundreds of videos we have on our YouTube channel and Facebook page, so if you are not following us on those channels already, please consider this my invitation to you to join us there.

We have a lot of exciting coverage coming up for you on Theme Park Insider in the month ahead, with the debut of Calico River Rapids at Knott's Berry Farm next week, followed by the highly anticipated opening of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge at Disneyland at the end of May, then the new Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure at Universal Orlando's The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Hogsmeade in early June.

We will have videos from all of those openings on our YouTube and Facebook channels, as well as reviews here on the website. The best way to keep in touch with everything is via our email newsletter, so we invite you to consider signing up for that, as well.

And you don't have to just watch the action here on Theme Park Insider. We are now helping you get out to the parks and experience these thrills for yourself now, too. Check out our new travel and ticketing pages, which include theme park tickets, hotel reservations, and vacation packages — including some nice discount opportunities. I hope that you will make Theme Park Insider one of the sources that you check when pricing theme park trips and vacations in the future.

But for now, thank you. Thank you for watching, for reading, for sharing, and for rating and commenting. We would not be the same Theme Park Insider community without you.

Robert, thanks for everything you do to make Theme Park Insider my go-to place for all theme park related news. There isn't a week that goes by that I don't refer to one of your articles ("According to Robert Niles....") or a reader's comment ("On Theme Park Insider, I read....). Looking forward to everything you have coming up in 2019 and beyond. Congrats!

Amazing. I agree, there are loads of park sites, but this is the only one I go to on a daily basis. The content is always current, well written and entertaining. Thanks for everything you do.

Thank you for the kind words, everyone. And do stay tuned. There's some really, really good stuff coming. Let's just say that I have been, uh, traveling....

Congrats Robert and your staff. You guys do a great job. Keep up the good work. You (Robert) and your staff ROCK!!!

Although a recent reader and contributor I can only amplify the comments above. It is beyond any reasonable doubt that this is the best theme park website with the best topics, discussions and community by some distance.

Great stuff Robert and the contributors.....and "thank you" for being an integral part of my daily routine.
