Best Ride in America Tournament: Round two, day four
Written by Robert Niles
Yesterday's contest between Griffon and Dueling Dragons - Ice saw the most, uh, aggressive voting in the tournament to date. Wild vote swings tripped my radar early in the voting, but with both sides engaged in heavy GOTV/ballot-stuffing, I decided to accept the results as they stood when I went to close the poll. Congratulations, Dueling Dragons - Ice fans, your coaster is moving on. The other Dragon (Fire) went down quietly to Tower of Terror, though, making me wonder if some Ice voters were not more motivated to drive the last remaining Busch Gardens Europe coaster from the tournament.Tweet
SeaWorld Orlando's Kraken and Disney World's Kilimanjaro Safaris also advanced.
Three first-round upset winners are on deck today as the second round wraps up. After today's match-ups, we will take the weekend off from the voting, and start the round of 16 on Monday. The quarterfinals will start Wednesday, the semi-finals on Friday and the championship match-up will happen on Monday, April 7.
Thanks for voting, commenting and spreading the word about the tournament! (So... who's final four remains alive?)
