We've been working this off-season to get just the right mix of discounts for you and to find additional discounts that you may have been looking for. Through a new program we will now have access to discount for Disney World, Disneyland, Universal Studios Orlando, Universal Studios Hollywood, SeaWorld Parks, Busch Gardens parks, all Six Flags parks and more, as well as select hotels, restaurants, and even discounts to some concerts and other events. We're also going to continue some of our most popular discounts like Holiday World, but they now have an online discount program so you will now be able to print your tickets at home or even at the hotel the night before.

Roller Coaster Fun in Costa Rica

Parque Nacional de Diversiones thrills for years

January 30, 2015 - Andrew Rybarczyk

Many of the roller coaster attractions at the Parque Nacional de Diversiones (National Amusement Park) in Costa Rica have already thrilled and entertained thousands of riders in other countries. Such is the case of Boomerang, a thrilling roller coaster designed and built by the dependable Dutch firm Vekoma. Boomerang was rescued from Playcenter, a Brazilian amusement park located in the outskirts of the gargantuan metropolis of Sao Paulo. Sadly, Playcenter stopped operating after nearly 40 years, and many Brazilian fans hoped that Boomerang would be relocated within their country.

January 28, 2015 - Andrew Rybarczyk

The bumper cars came to rest for the last time Sunday at Boomers, a family entertainment center in Dania Beach.

A message on Boomers' website Monday reported: "We are now closed. Thank you."

Last week, the website warned that Sunday, Jan. 25, would be its last day of operation.

A woman who answered the phone Friday at Boomers confirmed that the center would be closed so owners would have enough time to liquidate its assets before its scheduled demolition, possibly in May, to make way for a planned shopping plaza.
