Introducing the 'King of the Theme Park Graveyard' tournament
Published: April 25, 2008 at 9:55 AM
Following the success of our Best Ride in America Tournament, Theme Park Insider is going to run a tournament to find the best theme park attraction that no longer exists. We're calling it the 'King of the Theme Park Graveyard Tournament.' But we need your nominations to select and seed the entrants.
(Thanks to TPI reader Olivier Sanguy for the idea for this tournament, BTW.)
So I've set up a page through which you may submit your nominations for the tournament. Just submit the names of the attractions you most miss (and the park they were in). I will use the submissions, couple with my own judgment, to select and seed the dead attractions that will be in the tournament.
Then... we'll vote. Same as last time - a single elimination tournament working down to a final match-up. Dates TBA, as I won't know until I see the nominations how many attractions will be in this tournament. But I'd like to get the nominations wrapped up by next Friday, May 2.
Finally, I am looking for photos that I can include on the tournament vote posts, as we won't have attraction listing pages for most of these rides and show. So you've taken some photos of the old, closed rides that you've nominated that you'd like to submit, the nominations page will tell you how to get them to me. I could use a logo for the tournament, as well, if there's anyone with time and graphic design skills that would like to whip up one.
Thanks, and I hope that everyone has a great deal of fun with this one!
