Warm Up Your Winter in Southern California
Everyone wants to get away from the bitterness of winter, but not everyone knows where all the action is at during the cooler months. Luckily, at aRes Travel, our experts have identified the best destinations to find some winter sun and fun — and Southern California is right there at the top.
In SoCal, the glistening azure of the Pacific and the glorious stretches of golden sand fuse with some of the most incredible theme park experiences in the world. From Harry Potter to Disney and Six Flags in between, there really is something to cater for every whim here in the sunshine state.
See the movie sets at Universal Studios Hollywood™
Hollywood is known globally as the place where you can brush shoulders with movie stars and celebrities, but for a guaranteed good time, you’d be hard pressed to find anywhere better than Universal Studios Hollywood™, which is packed with rides, shows and attractions all themed to your favourite film or TV show.
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ is the undoubted highlight for any budding witch or wizard out there. Wonder the streets of Hogsmeade™ and grab yourself a butterbeer, gaze in awe at the majestic grandeur of Hogwarts™ castle, and take a ride on Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey™, a magical rollercoaster that immerses you in the secrets and sorcery of the wizarding world.
For movie buffs, The World-Famous Studio Tour is like walking into a dream — thirteen city blocks cover four acres of land, and plunge you into the historic sets of War of the Worlds, King Kong, Psycho and many more. To cap it all, the grand finale, Fast and Furious — Supercharged, is a high-octane, super-fast coaster which engulfs you in a world of ultra-modern special effects and hurls you into the dark underbelly of crime cartels and insanely fast cars.
Step into the Jurassic World™ at the Raptor Encounter and come face-to-face with a ferocious walking, roaring but (mostly!) friendly velociraptor. You might be curious to meet him, but he’s far more curious to eat you!
At aRes Travel, you can save money with our exclusive deals, such as massive discounts on the Hollywood VIP Experience, a full day of moviemaking magic with an expert guide, or the Universal Express™, a skip-the-line ticket allowing you quick and seamless access to all the rides, shows and attractions throughout the park. For more information and customized discounts, get in touch with our aRes Travel experts.
Spend a couple of days with Disney characters…Disney California Adventure® Park has changed!
All children know that Disneyland® Resort is where the magic happens, and the Disney California Adventure® Park within has all the thrills and spills for young and old.
Cars Land is a must for those obsessed with Lightning McQueen, and you can take on other members of your family on the Radiator Springs Racers, where you’ll be pitted head-to-head in a breakneck battle of speed. Take the opportunity to meet the residents before heading to the Cozy Cone Motel to refuel on tasty treats such as churros, pretzels and “route” beer.
For a high-octane adventure, chase down the chaos-causing Jack-Jack on the Incredicoaster and discover your own superpower in the newly reimagined ride around Pixar Pier. With spanking-new tunnels, special effects and a stunning musical score from The Incredibles 2 composer himself, this (literally!) incredible ride will leave you wanting more!
Of course, no trip to any Disneyland® would be complete without the opportunity to meet your favourite characters in person! Experience a heroic encounter with Captain Marvel, unleash your inner patriot with Captain America, and get caught in Spiderman’s web of excitement. Don’t forget your cameras! You’ll want to preserve those moments for eternity.
With aRes Travel, getting in and around the Disney California Adventure® Park is made easier with some fantastic deals and fabulous savings. You can procure a 3-Day, 4-Day or 5-Day Park Hopper® ticket at massive discounts, allowing you limitless access to both Disneyland® Resort and Disney California Adventure® Park as well as one early-access pass for extra-special magical moments.

Get your thrill on at Six Flags Magic Mountain
Known as the ‘Thrill Capital of the World’, Six Flags Magic Mountain is arguably the best theme park in the world. With rides to suit all shapes and sizes, you’ll never be lost for things to do at this place that’s packed with pure fun!
Get on board the Twisted Colossus, one of the world’s longest and twistiest hybrid coasters, now new and improved for 2019! There are more twists, turns and spirals than ever before in a renovation that has truly modernised this classic ride. A true fusion of traditional thrills and state-of-the-art spills!
Be a part of a record-breaking design on the Full Throttle, the tallest and fastest looped rollercoaster in the world. You’ll be thrown 160 feet into the air — higher than anyone has ever been on such a ride! And because it’s not enough to just do it once, you’ll do it in reverse as well!
Take on Tatsu, a fiery dragon that breathes fire into your heart and stomach! Hanging face down, you’ll plummet towards the earth like an eagle diving for its prey, before corkscrewing wildly towards the ferocious mouth of the beast!
