A world first new sensory ‘holiday laboratory’ from Virgin Holidays that’s as close as you can get to actually being on holiday opened at Bluewater in Kent last Saturday. And customers are being invited down in beachwear to experiment with it for themselves.
It’s as far away as possible from the old travel agent image of an assistant behind a desk with a pile of brochures. In fact, the only brochures customers will see in this ‘paperfree’ environment will be old ones being recycled by Virgin Holidays into the design of the furniture and fittings.
On entry to the new Virgin Holidays laboratory, senses are immediately aroused with aromas evoking the exact scents of being on holiday, including coconut and soft sand, created by Brandaroma.
your next trip to Florida extra special.
Here are just a few of the experiences* available at SeaWorld, Busch Gardens and Discovery Cove:
Beluga Interaction Programme
SeaWorld is one of the few places in the world to offer this amazing experience. First you'll learn more about the beautiful Beluga whale. Then, you'll change into a wetsuit and have the chance to interact and communicate via hand signals with these mysterious creatures.
This open truck tour across the Serengeti Plain with a Busch Gardens guide, gives you the chance to see free roaming exotic animals such as zebra and rhino. Plus, you'll also have the opportunity to hand-feed giraffes. A fantastic photo opportunity for holiday memories of a lifetime!
SeaVenture at Discovery Cove Orlando
This underwater walking tour at Discovery Cove, gives you the chance to explore The Grand Reef from a different perspective. Wearing a dive helmet, you'll encounter venomous lionfish and sharks (all safely housed behind huge panoramic windows) and learn about other unusual creatures.
