2009 Best Ride in America Tournament: Griffon, Apollo's Chariot, Mummy and Maverick
Written by Robert Niles
We're down to just eight rides, as we start the quarterfinals of the Best Ride in America Tournament here on Theme Park Insider.Tweet
In this morning's match-ups, we start with a battle between roller coasters from Busch Gardens Europe: Griffon versus Apollo's Chariot.
It's theme versus thrill in the second match, as Universal Studios Florida's Revenge of the Mummy takes on upstart Maverick from Cedar Point.
Have it out in the comments.
Update: Allow me to make another pitch for Facebook readers to join Theme Park Insider's Facebook page. We'll be dumping much in-park and on-ride video there this summer.
Update 2: Two o'clock's come and gone on the west coast, so voting is closed. We've moved on to the other set of quarterfinals, with Spider-Man vs. Hulk and Millennium Force vs. Everest.
