Save the date: Best Theme Park Attraction in America tournament details coming soon....

Published: November 23, 2009 at 4:27 PM

Mark your calendars: On Dec. 14, I'll be announcing details of the 2010 Best Attraction in America tournament.

That's right; it's the best "attraction" in America this year, instead of simply the best "ride" as it has been for the tournament's first two years. We're opening the competition to the very best shows that play at the nation's top theme parks.

I hope that folks will approve of the other changes that will be coming in this year's tournament, too. Why the early announcement? Well, that will make sense on the 14th, as well.

Details, as I said, to come.... ;-)

I will approve of the changes ... unless Jay Ray approves of the changes in which case I disapprove!

Sounds great Robert!

I bet I'm the only one here that has the first song from the American Adventure as a ring tone!

" Theres a land cross this ocean I'm waiting to see. A land for these people who dream to be free..." and of course the rest.

On behalf of our similarly named daughters, I disagree to agree with TH's approval and/or disapproval.

Either way, I am a bit concerned that if the tournament begins in Christmas will be in utter ruin.

Go...Prowler? ;)

Can't wait for the ballot stuffing! :)

Best attraction is better than just coasters. I like some of the "dark rides" better than the coasters.
