Best Ride in America Tournament: Round one, day four
Written by Robert Niles
Yesterday, Universal's Incredible Hulk Coaster, Disneyland's Haunted Mansion and Disney's Rock n' Roller Coaster advanced in blow-outs. In the only close race, Kings Island's The Beast knocked out Dollywood's Mystery Mine. Today... it's all Disney and Universal.Tweet
Next up: (20) California Screamin' vs. (45) The Cat in the Hat. At first this seems like a silly match-up, but if you think about it for a moment, it's actually fascinating: The unthemed roller coaster from Disney versus the story-driven dark ride from Universal. The stereotypes reversed. Which will you pick?
Finally... oh heck, I got nothin' for this one: (4) Pirates of the Caribbean (Disneyland) vs. (61) Dumbo the Flying Elephant (Disneyland). Maybe some parents of little kids will vote for Dumbo on their children's behalf. But, judging from the number of Cap'n Jack Sparrow backpacks I see at my kids' elementary school, probably not. Let the blow-out begin.
Talk about 'em in the comments....
