Best Ride in America Tournament: Round one, day five
Written by Robert Niles
The favorites all advanced yesterday in the TPI tournament, with Disneyland's Pirates of the Caribbean, IoA's Jurassic Park River Adventure, Expedition Everest and California Screamin' each advancing to the next round.Tweet
Here's what's up today:
They're both Disneyland dark rides that send you on boats through rooms of singing dolls. Now, beyond that, they only thing that (6) Splash Mountain and (59) it's a small world have in common is that they're stuck together in this first-round match-up.
How do you like your reality-twisting dark rides? Fast, (14) Revenge of the Mummy (USF), or slow, (51) Alice in Wonderland? (A tea party? Hummph. What does it take to get a cup of coffee around here?)
This match-up absolutely kills me. It might be the toughest one for me to pick in the entire first round: (22) Popeye & Bluto's Bilge-Rat Barges vs. (43) Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters (Disneyland). Two ridiculously run fun rides. Which is your favorite?
Meet in the comments for the verbal brawl....
Update: Quote of the tournament so far, from the comments: "El Toro is losing because Fire burns wood."
