New Kids Free Admission Offer at Universal Orlando

Universal Orlando Resort has launched a ticket offer that provides families with an excellent value in theme park vacations. Beginning immediately, one child up to and including nine-years-old will get free admission to Universal Orlando’s theme parks when their parent buys a two-day, multi-park pass online.

The new Kids Free ticket is the most value-driven ticket in Universal Orlando’s history. No other Orlando theme park offers this ticket type. Now, each of the nearly 40 million children between the ages of one-day and nine-years-old in the United States is eligible for free admission to Universal’s Orlando theme parks.

The new Kids Free ticket is tied to what already is Universal’s most popular online ticket – the two-day, multi-park pass – and will be sold exclusively online. In addition to the Kids Free ticket offer, Universal Orlando is also offering a vacation package that includes free theme park admission, free hotel accommodations and free food all day long for kids whose parents buy their travel package online.

The new Kids Free ticket is the latest in Universal Orlando’s effort to create options for today’s families seeking value, flexibility and convenience during their theme park destination vacation. For example, for $99.95 (before tax), guests can buy a version of the two-day, multi-park pass that includes a bonus of three extra days – allowing guests to feel comfortable coming and going as they please. And for $59.75 (before tax) – a reduced rate from the gate price – guests can buy a special online version of Universal’s one-day, one-park pass that comes with five consecutive days of unlimited admission. And – as always – guests at Universal Orlando’s three on-site hotels get free, unlimited Universal Express access to nearly all the rides and attractions in the destination’s two theme parks.

The two-day, multi-park pass that adults must purchase to obtain a Kids Free ticket for their child is sold online at Universal Orlando’s website (universalorlando.com) for $99.95 (before tax). As with all its ticket and travel products, Universal Orlando may change details and availability at any time. For details on the Kids Free Vacation Ticket and any restrictions that may apply, guests should visit Universal Orlando’s website.

The Universal Orlando resort destination (www.universalorlando.com) includes two dramatically distinct and adjacent theme parks, the Universal Studios motion picture and television theme park and Islands of Adventure, Orlando's most thrilling and exhilarating theme park. Universal Orlando also includes CityWalk, a 30-acre dining, shopping, club and live-entertainment venue as well as premier on-site Loews hotels and world-class film and television production facilities.

For more information, visit the Universal Orlando website at www.universalorlando.com Riding a horse for the first time can be intimidating, but not during First-Time Rider Week at The Wild Rose Ranch in Kimberly, British Columbia. This seven-day adventure, designed specifically for horse lovers wanting to gain confidence and skill on the back of a horse, takes all the guesswork out of learning to ride, leaving only the sheer exhilaration of achieving a goal and in the wild outdoors, no less.

Of course, the very words dude ranch conjure up visions of horse and rider galloping over the countryside, in hot pursuit of the Wild Western dream. In today's society, however, not many people have the chance to develop grand riding skills, yet a dude ranch vacation seems so tempting. With this first-time rider program, guests can join other riders with similar experience and abilities for basic orientation, lessons, trail riding and even games. Ranch staff take things slow and easy to ensure that guests feel comfortable, confident and in control.

Each day offers a different riding adventure, with a gradual increase of time spent in the saddle and skills developed. Personalized attention means that each guest gains the information, assurance, and experience necessary to experience success. And no hard riding is planned on trails; safety is a top priority.

And, while horses are the main attraction at Wild Rose Ranch, there's certainly plenty of other activities planned as well. A visit to historic Fort Steele and an afternoon theatre presentation breaks up one day of lessons. A day ride to Lazy Lake, with a well-deserved chuckwagon lunch and an afternoon spent canoeing and swimming is another highlight. And because the ranch keeps its guest groups small (a limit of eight), tight friendships are formed as guests have ample time to establish friendships and share the sense of accomplishment they feel as they work to gain a new skill.

The Wild Rose Ranch riding program is designed to give guests a greater appreciation of the East Kootenay region, from the open pine forests to abandoned logging towns to the glacial erratics that give pause to the thousands of years of history of the area. The outdoor riding arena provides the ideal place for first-time rider guests to practice the finer points of equitation, get to know their horse better, and even try some barrel racing.

This week of adventure is ideal for a group of first-time riders or any horse lovers who want to learn to ride and experience Canada's western wildlands on horseback. The First-Time Riders week is scheduled for June 20-27, 2004, and cost is $1,040 US. For more information, visit the Wild Rose Ranch website at: Wild Rose Ranch - Kimberley, British, Columbia.
