Tournament weekend update
Written by Robert Niles
Thanks to everyone who's voted, Tweeted, posted to Facebook or otherwise participated and spread the word about this year's Best Theme Park Attraction Tournament.Tweet
Well, it looks like y'all threw me a curve with the tie between Kings Island's The Beast and Cedar Point's Maverick. So we're going to overtime on Monday morning, at 10am Eastern, 7am Pacific. It'll be a two-hour overtime. Note that this is an overtime, and not a revote. So if you've already voted, you won't be able to vote again. I'll simply reopen the poll then for people who missed the original voting window.
Speaking of those voting windows, based on both popular demand and the fact that the new voting tool seems to be holding up, I'm extending the voting window for the remainder of the first round to four hours for each match-up. We'll go to six-hour windows for the subsequent rounds. (You can see the new match-up times on the PDF tournament bracket.)
The idea remains that this is a tournament, with individual games that I hope people will come see on the site as they happen throughout the day.
We've had a mix of blow-outs, close battles and even upsets so far. (Impressions de France... *sniff*) And I'm hoping that as you spread the word, we'll have more great comment threads going on each match-up as the tournament continues.
Thanks again to everyone and I'll see you on Monday morning!
