2009 Best Ride in America Tournament, round one: The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man bracket
Written by Robert Niles
Welcome to day seven of the 2009 Best Ride in America tournament on Theme Park Insider.Tweet
Yesterday saw another close finish, as eliminated Toy Story Midway Mania from Disney's Hollywood Studios eliminated Kilimanjaro Safaris from Disney's Animal Kingdom. The Ice coaster from Islands of Adventure's Dueling Dragons pulled the day's only upset, eliminating Magic Mountain's Goliath. Universal Studios Florida's Revenge of the Mummy and Disneyland's Pirates of the Caribbean took care of business, as well, advancing easily.
Today, tournament two-seed The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man from Universal's Islands of Adventure opens its second attempt to capture the 'Best Ride in America' crown against Epcot's refurbished Spaceship Earth.
As always, I ask you to take a look at the comments below *before* casting your votes. (Early voters, get the campaigning going by submitting a comment.) Thoughtful votes help make this a better tournament.
It's an all Universal battle up next, as Islands of Adventure's Dueling Dragons - Fire takes on Universal Studios Hollywood's Jurassic Park - The Ride. [Note: This is the Hollywood version of the ride, not the Islands of Adventure one!]
