[Update: If you haven't voted yet, *please* read the comments *before* voting. There's some strong campaigning down there, well worth considering.]
Yesterday, three of the higher seeds advanced, led by Busch Gardens Europe's Griffon, along with Disney's Space Mountain and Splash Mountain. The sole upset was Six Flags Magic Mountain's X2, which eliminated Hersheypark's Storm Runner.
It's all Disney in the next contest, as Disneyland's favored Haunted Mansion takes on Epcot upstart Test Track. (Will Test Track sponsor General Motors become Ghost #1,000 in the Mansion? Odds look good.)
Finally, two themed roller coasters square off: It's Dollywood's Mystery Mine, a former winner of the Theme Park Insider 'Best New Attraction' award, versus the granddaddy of all steel and themed coasters, Disneyland's Matterhorn Bobsleds.
Once again, tell us in the comments why you voted the way you did.
