2010 Best Theme Park Attraction nominee: MuppetVision 3D at Disney's Hollywood Studios
Written by Robert Niles
Theme Park Insider readers have voted MuppetVision 3D at the Disney's Hollywood Studios theme park in Walt Disney World as the sixth seed in the Best Movie or Animated Show bracket of the 2010 Best Theme Park Attraction Tournament.Tweet
Set in the "Muppet Show" theater, complete with Statler & Waldorf heckling from the balcony, MuppetVision 3D shows us the inside of Muppet Labs, where Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and Beaker have "perfected" 3-D technology. To show off their work, Dr. Honeydew introduces us to the first 3-D, computer generated Muppet, Waldo C. Graphic.
Then, as you could probably guess, something goes terribly wrong, and Waldo runs amok throughout the show, ultimately crashing Sam the Eagle's attempt at a patriotic finale. The Swedish Chef even tries to shoot down Waldo, but just manages to destroy the theater in the process.
In short, it's the mayhem you expect from the Muppets.
