Orlando Attractions Update – The winners of another round of TripAdvisor’s Traveler’s Choice awards were announced Tuesday and Orlando amusement parks and water parks earned top marks.
To determine the winners, TripAdvisor researchers analyzed the quality and quantity of user reviews for each attraction during a 12-month period.
Seven of the top 10 amusement parks in the country are located in Orlando, including the top four. For water parks that number shrunk to three of the top ten. No Florida amusement or water parks outside of Orlando appeared on the lists.
Though July tends to be the most popular month for travelers looking to check out attractions, TripAdvisor reports that hotel rates in Orlando are slightly cheaper in August compared to other summer months.
For those who do hit the parks, roller coasters are the most popular amusement park ride and lazy rivers are the most popular at water parks, TripAdvisor reports.
Just keep in mind that with the summer rush comes longer lines for rides, something 79 percent of TripAdvisor users said was their biggest pet peeve. Aside from that, other annoyances include overpriced food, high entry fees and large crowds.
