I was against heavy-light match-ups at first. But then I think about how I would have chosen Splash Mountain, a family water ride, over Hulk.
At IOA, the headliners are The Incredible Hulk, The Adventures of Spiderman, Popeye & Bluto's Bilge Rat Barges, Dudley Do-Right's Ripsaw Falls, Jurassic Park River Adventure, Dueling Dragons, and Poseidon's Fury.
At Cali Adventure, It's Tough to Be a Bug, Soarin' Over California, Grizzly River Run, Aladdin, Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, MuppetVision 3D, and California Screamin' highlight the biggies.
That's 7-on-7, and if the two parks put those out as their A-game material, then any of them should be fit to take on any of the others. I think it's perfectly reasonable to pit Hulk against Grizzly, or Aladdin against Dudley, or Soarin' against Poseidon.
And if not, then they put out new A-game. Hence Harry Potter, Toy Story Mania, Radiator Springs, and the rest.
