Bought tickets for Gulf World for 1/2 off. Was a bit skeptical at first, but the process was quick and easy. Received a email and text with vouchers to redeem at Gulf World, which was accepted without any issues. Great deal and very easy to use!

The shows were great

We really enjoyed the Dolphin show! It was spectacular and the trainers did a great job!!! We wondered, though, whether the staff had been given some bad news before they opened the doors that morning. Their faces were very serious and avoiding eye contact. Except the trainers in the Dolphin show only one single staff member smiled! We work with 800 people and receive 1300 guests every day Year round so we understand that you can get peopled-out but what we experienced Friday 24th was noticeable. I hope they’re all ok!
