Ripley's Aquarium of Canada Launches New "Time Tickets" Program to Eliminate Guest Lineups
TORONTO, Nov. 5, 2013 /CNW/ - Toronto's newest and most exciting attraction, Ripley's Aquarium of Canada, has announced that it has launched a new "Time Tickets" program so guests are able to conveniently reserve tickets in advance online for the date and time they wish to visit, thus enabling guests to plan their visit in advance and eliminating the need to wait in long lines.
"Our Aquarium has been open for three weeks and we are thrilled by the overwhelming response and enthusiasm for our brand new attraction," says Peter Doyle, General Manager of Ripley's Aquarium of Canada. "We want to make sure that families can plan their visit ahead of time, and not have to worry about those occasions when there may be long lineups for buying tickets. Our top priority is to ensure our guests have a fantastic experience, so we created this new 'Time Ticket' specifically to eliminate long lineups outside."
To prevent long wait times and overcrowding, the Aquarium will sell a limited number of tickets per arrival time slot. Once guests arrive at the Aquarium during their selected arrival time, they will be quickly check-in by Guest Services staff. And, guests are not limited to a specific length of stay for their visit. "Our guests are welcome to enjoy the Aquarium for as long as they wish that day," says Doyle.
"Time Ticket" prices start from $29.98 for Adults, $19.98 for Youths and Seniors, and $9.98 for Children (Ages 3-5). Children ages 2 and under receive complimentary admission when accompanied by an adult.
