What are the most underrated theme park attractions in America?
Written by Robert Niles
Yesterday, we talked about the most overrated theme park attractions in America. (And did you ever have plenty to say!)Tweet
So, predictably, I suppose, today let's take on the flip side: What are the most underrated theme park attractions in the country?
Here's my list. Again, these aren't my necessarily my favorite attraction, or the ones I think best in a park (though a few are). They're the rides and shows that I think don't get enough credit from the wider audience of theme park fans. And if I don't list a park, it's because either I haven't visited it in the park year or so, or if I did, I didn't consider any of its attractions to be especially underrated.
In some cases I mention an attraction here because of a single element or quality that I think too often overlooked. In other cases, the attraction presents a complete package, but for some reason, perhaps age or the presence of even better attractions nearby, people don't rave about it as much as they should.
Busch Gardens Williamsburg: Loch Ness Monster
Disney's Animal Kingdom: Finding Nemo - The Musical
Disney's California Adventure: Monsters, Inc: Mike and Sulley to the Rescue
