Ripley’s Attractions, the worldwide corporation behind Ripley’s Believe It or Not Museums and Ripley’s Aquariums, has 85 attractions in over 11 countries. A few of the cities they currently operate in include Gatlinburg, TN; Branson, MO; Orlando, FL; Williamsburg, VA; Myrtle Beach, SC; and Pigeon Forge, TN. Within these regional markets, Ripley’s now sells tickets and lodging-inclusive vacation packages online with Internet reservation company, ReserveDirect.
The Branson Ripley’s Believe It or Not, Ripley’s Odditorium Orlando and Ripley’s Museum Gatlinburg have all utilized ReserveDirect’s Private Label Reservation Solution. Ripley’s customers can now reserve Ripley’s attraction tickets with ease, as well as package them with other area products and lodging, all within a custom-branded private label website. ReserveDirect is the first and only third party ticket reseller to offer this method of ticket fulfillment for Ripley’s Attractions. ReserveDirect is also an authorized seller of Ripley’s products for all locations on their destination websites, which include ReserveBranson.com, ReservePigeonForge.com, ReserveMyrtleBeach.com, ReserveGatlinburg.com, ReserveOrlando.com and ReserveWilliamsburg.com.
The Advanced Private Label Reservation Solution, which adds another layer of brand exclusivity and packaging services, has aided Ripley’s Aquarium Gatlinburg by creating an extension of the Ripley’s Aquarium website. This packaging technology allows for seamless transactions, enabling customers to reserve hotel and lodging-inclusive packages to Ripley’s Aquarium while also incorporating popular Gatlinburg attractions like the Dixie Stampede, to create money saving, value-based vacation packages.
“We developed a successful business relationship with Ripley’s Attractions by selling their products in our regional destination markets,” said John Johnson, President of ReserveDirect. “So they were a great fit for our solutions that enable seamless ticket transactions as well as product packaging. It adds value for their customers, and enhances their overall brand.”
