Best Ride in America Tournament: Weekend update
Written by Robert Niles
The second round is done in the 'Best Ride in America' tournament, here on Theme Park Insider. The third round, the round of 16, will begin on Monday.Tweet
Here are the final sixteen:
1. The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man
Test Track earned its way into the final 16 yesterday with a shocking upset of Disneyland's Splash Mountain, the highest-seeded ride to lose to date.
Disney has seven rides in the round of 16, Busch and Universal four each, and Cedar Fair one. Disneyland and Universal's Islands of Adventure each have three rides alive in the tourney, tying for the most among all theme parks.
Twelve of the top 16 seeds made it into the third round, a solid 75 percent, and none of the lower seeded rides that advanced did so with more than 55 percent of the vote. So I think that the seeds have held up well to date.
Whether they will continue to hold is a different matter, however. Be sure to come vote on Monday, and we'll find out together.
One more thing: Six people still have all four of their semifinalist picks alive in the tournament. Griffon's loss took out the most entries (including mine!).
