Mystery Lodge is awful! Always has been. Reflections of China is dated - but it's in Circlevision!

I've got to disagree. I think that Mystery Lodge is one of the more innovative, engaging and technically impressive theme park shows playing today. I know that Knott's has become pretty much an iron park in recent years, but if you find yourself at Knott's, please do seek out Mystery Lodge and give it a try. I highly recommend the show and am giving it my vote in this round.

I haven't experienced Mystery Lodge. Gotta sit this one out. I don't vote if I haven't experienced both attractions.

Robert -
I noticed you no longer have the option to view the voting results without voting. Can this be changed? I like seeing the results, but I don't vote for things I haven't experienced.

Mystery Lodge is a real one-of-a-kind theme park attraction. It has a great message!

What a squeaker!

I would have voted for China. Like the new voting times!

How is traffic to the site coming along?

Another voting window I'm sorry I missed, as I would've voted for Mystery Lodge -- a creative, well-executed show with some cool effects!

Robert.
I'm sure there must be others,like myself, who would have liked to have taken part in the competition but because your "window" for voting is so short we miss out. The time difference means trying to vote overnight / early hours which is almost impossible.
Any chance of extending the window to 24 hours to allow us overseas members to take part ?
From David Brown on March 19, 2010 at 6:52 AM
I'd like to second Rob P's comments. I woke up this morning to find half a dozen votes all gone whilst I was in bed with no chance of me having any say in them. Last eyar I seem to remember we had 12 or 24 horus to cast our votes? This seems to me to simply make this whole process less democratic as it limits participation only to those who can log on during a very specific time frame, and effectively disenfranchises most of us who happen to live anywhere other than in the USA. Such a shame - your website is usually spot-on but this is really disappointing.

I'd have voted for China had I had the chance -
