Raise your hand if you are ready to be On the Go in the Parks this weekend…I know I am!

As the theme parks of Central Florida start relaxing their COVID-19 Protocols, there are some important things to note and to keep in mind as you are planning your next vist to be On the Go in the Parks.

  • Both parks are still requiring guests to wear face coverings except when guests are stationary eating or drinking in appropriate areas.
  • The Universal Orlando Resort announced via their website that they would no longer be conducting temperature checks for guests prior to entry into the park and will be reducing their social distancing to 1 meter/3 feet.
  • While not part of the official announcement, park guests have shared on social media that the Universal Orlando Resort parks are once again utilizing the single-rider lines, seating parties together, and filling all rows in both their attractions and shows.
  • At the Walt Disney World Resort, temperature checks will be phased out in all areas that require them by May 16, 2021.
  • Theme park reservations will continue to be required for guests to enter a park.

Jurassic World VelociCoaster Opening Announced

It’s official: On Thursday, June 10, thrill-seekers will have the opportunity to soar 155 feet in the air and catapult up to 70 mph alongside a ferocious Velociraptor pack as the Jurassic World VelociCoaster – Florida’s fastest and tallest launch coaster – opens at Universals Islands of Adventure at the Universal Orlando Resort.

This all-new species of roller coaster was conceived and designed by the award-winning Universal Creative team in partnership with acclaimed filmmakers from Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment – bringing to life a new “Jurassic World” story that combines the epic thrills and popular characters from the blockbuster film franchise with jaw-dropping roller coaster maneuvers. The original cast from the movies – Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard and BD Wong – reprise their roles as Owen Grady, Claire Dearing and Dr. Henry Wu in the thrilling new attraction, which sends guests on an extreme adventure through the raptor paddock and beyond with the films’ Velociraptor pack: Blue, Charlie, Delta and Echo.

VelociCoaster will transport guests into a dynamic environment inspired by the “Jurassic World” films, surrounded by intricately detailed rock work and lush landscaping, conveniently located near the elevated watch tower used to keep an eye on the dinosaurs. Once inside, guests are greeted by Dr. Wu as they learn about the cutting-edge new coaster, which Jurassic World is touting as its newest “carnivore expansion.” Along the way, they’ll hear the screams of fellow riders as they rapidly roar by with Blue, Delta, Charlie and Echo right on their heels – and even come face-to-face with a few hungry Velociraptors who are anxiously awaiting being released from their stables. As the adrenaline builds and guests approach the load platform, they will hear a few reassuring words from Claire Dearing – and one final warning from Owen Grady.

Then, the ultimate high-speed chase begins.

After boarding revolutionary ride vehicles that have been specially designed to intensify the thrills, guests take off on an epic coaster experience that sends them through the raptor paddock, into the air, just inches above water, and more. They’ll encounter a series of intense maneuvers along the coaster’s 4,700 feet of track, including near-misses, a barrel roll right above the Islands of Adventure lagoon, high-speed launches – the fastest reaching 70 mph in 2.4 seconds – and the signature “Top Hat,” which propels riders 155 feet in the air and then immediately into an 80-degree drop – Universal’s steepest drop yet.

Stay tuned for more details about Jurassic World VelociCoaster  by following @onthegoinmco on InstagramTwitterFacebook, and YouTube!

It’s Showtime…Halloween Horror Nights Returns

Halloween Horror Nights - Beetlejuice Artwork

The world’s premier Halloween event, Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights, is back – returning this fall for its much-anticipated 30th year and unleashing a sinister lineup of horrifying experiences on select nights beginning on September 3 through October 31.

Guests will face 10 terrifying haunted houses, five twisted scare zones and two outrageous live shows based on some of the biggest names in horror and pop culture – with the first haunted house of the season featuring the ‘ghost with the most’ and Halloween Horror Nights legend, “Beetlejuice.”

Beetlejuice was the first “ghost host” of Halloween Horror Nights – originally called ‘Fright Nights’ – during the event’s debut in 1991. As Halloween Horror Nights 2021 celebrates a milestone year, this former host will become the supernatural star of a bone-chilling haunted house based on Warner Bros. Pictures and Tim Burton’s Academy Award-winning horror-fantasy film.

Guests will be at the whim of the self-described “Bio-Exorcist” as they shadow Beetlejuice’s every move through artfully recreated scenes from the popular film.

Halloween Horror Nights - Beetlejuice

From the infamous haunted attic within the Maitland home, to the model graveyard and Dante’s Inferno Room, guests will have the extraordinary chance to enter the movie surrounded by its most iconic characters.

With brash defiance, Beetlejuice is ready to turn on the juice and see what shakes loose – and his plans don’t include returning to the land of the unliving.

And this is just the beginning… more details about Halloween Horror Nights 2021 will be revealed in the months ahead.

Universal Orlando will continue to monitor the environment and implement enhanced health and safety procedures for its operation of Halloween Horror Nights this fall. Specific details will be shared closer to the event’s debut. For more information about Universal Orlando’s current health and safety guidelines, click here.

Spring Break 2021 Tips

Obie and Ashley Spring Break 2021 Tips
You can hear me every week on the Obie & Ashley UNFILTERED podcast!

Spring Break is almost here, and it is going to be an incredibly busy season for the theme parks of Central Florida.

To help you navigate the parks, here are a few Spring Break tips by park!

Spring Break 2021 Tips

Walt Disney World
Spring Break 2021 Tips Walt Disney World  Park Pass Calendar
  • The Walt Disney World theme parks are all sold out for Resort and ticket holders, but some Annual Passholder availability has flickered in and out so be sure to check the Park Pass Reservation page often.
  • If you do have a ticket and are looking to park hop after 2pm, keep this number handy (407) 560-5000! This number will inform you if a park is at capacity and not accepting park hoppers. 
  • Please do yourself a favor and don’t show up to ‘talk your way in’. The capacity is what it is, and if you do not have a reservation you will be turned away. 
  • Disney Springs will also be EXTREMELY busy!!!! Also be aware that if you have a dining reservation, you are not guaranteed entry into Disney Springs.
Universal Orlando Resort
Universal Orlando Resort Spring Break 2021 Launches Limited-Time Offer for US Residents
  • The Universal Orlando Resort does not take reservations for Universal Studios Florida or Universal Islands of Adventure, so these parks will absolutely cap out with capacity early in the day due to the amazing ticket and hotel deals they have right now.
  • The Universal Social Media Team is GREAT at posting about park hours, tips, and when the parks reach capacity & are letting guests in again. So make sure you follow @universalorl on Twitter
  • If you do get into the parks, bring a lot of patience!!! The lines will be long, so make sure to be kind & social distance.
SeaWorld Orlando
SeaWorld Orlando Reservation Spring Break 2021 Tips
  • All guests with existing tickets, Fun Cards, or Annual Passes must make a reservation using this system in advance in order to manage park capacity and maintain physical distancing
  • Again, these parks will be SUPER busy so bring your patience and be prepared for those long lines.
