2009 Best Ride in America Tournament, round one: Revenge of the Mummy bracket
Written by Robert Niles
Welcome to day six of the 2009 Best Ride in America tournament on Theme Park Insider.Tweet
Yesterday brought the closest match in the tournament so far, as Knott's Berry Farm's Xcelerator edged Dollywood's Thunderhead. In other contests, defending champion Twilight Zone Tower of Terror advanced easily, as did Kings Island's The Beast, while Maverick upset its Cedar Point neighbor Top Thrill Dragster.
Today, Universal Studios Florida's Revenge of the Mummy leads the bracket, taking on Led Zeppelin - The Ride, a B&M coaster that almost didn't make it into the tournament because of the possibility that its home, Hard Rock Park, would close.
