2009 Best Ride in America Tournament: Beast, Maverick, Mansion and Apollo's Chariot
Written by Robert Niles
Welcome to the third round of the 2009 Best Ride in America tournament on Theme Park Insider. Today, we've split the match-ups into two threads. In the morning contests, Busch Gardens fans dominated the voting, pushing Griffon to a win over Disneyland's Space Mountain and helping Universal Studios Florida's Revenge of the Mummy hold off Disneyland's Pirates of the Caribbean.Tweet
We start the afternoon match-ups with Cedar Point Nation's Maverick taking on Cedar Fair sibling The Beast from Kings Island. Will Cedar Point rally its fans to defeat a coaster from its own corporate family?
Again, everyone, please read through the comments before casting your votes! Well-informed voters make for a better tournament. (Plus, reading the comments is more than half the fun of this thing, anyway.)
Anybody got anything to say? ;-) The comments await....
Also: For those folks joining us from Facebook, please take a moment to become a fan of Theme Park Insider, too!
