LMA! all the way!!
Have to go with LMA as my daughter was once selected to "drive" the car.
I thought Waterworld was great, but I'm going to have to continue my Lights! Motors! Action! fanboy-ness again today. I love the show, mainly due to my love of cars and driving, and LMA just makes my day. I hope it wins.
Wow, I just found out that LMO defeated Aladdin! I was sure Aladdin would go to the finals. Come on, LMO isn't bad, but Aladdin beats the pants off this show.
This should be Aladdin and Waterworld. In any case, Waterworld should advance. It's probably the best stunt show out there, rarely losing any momentum, which is the primary flaw in Disney stunt shows.
I'm trying to send some traffic to the site from Universal fan clubs. Unfortunately, the Hollywood fan club pales in comparison to the Orlando one.
Kevin Costner will win...
Waterworld by far. It is more of a 'show' in the sense that they don't stop, tell you how they did it, take time to set up the next stunt,etc... It flows a lot better. Both are great shows, but Waterworld takes this one.
Waterworld is the best live show in the nation, I can't believe that it is curently loosing
This shouldn't even be a contest.
Joshua, last time i went to DHS they acknowledged all the stunt actors at Indiana Jones and they acknowledged the stunt drivers at Lights! Motors! Action!
Crud, here is where I think that Waterworld may get bumped off as many people haven't seen it. It is by far the best stunt show at any theme park. There's a storyline that's easy to follow considering the limitations. Also, there's a beginning, middle, and end with no strange breaks inbetween. The action actually flows from stunt to stunt.
No Universal fans today? Sigh. It looks like LMA is poised to take a down second far superior show.
You're kidding me. Wow.
Wow I'm shocked. LMA is ok but it can't compare to Water World. WaterWorld is 15 minutes of jam packed action and stunts. You are also a lot closer to the action so you feel more immersed in the show. Pre-show is fun as well. LMA just has to much down time. Aladdin is way better than LMA and WaterWorld is a more entertaining one as well but I guess since more people visit Orlando than thats why we get these results, thats the only way I can explain this.
You know, the primary criticism directed towards LMA is its downtime, but perhaps some people like that. I know with Waterworld, I almost felt like I missed part of it, because so much happened so fast I didn't have time to digest it all. The scene breaks in LMA not only let you digest what you just saw, they take the opportunity to explain some of it.
I would like the downtime
Once again, East Coast beats West Coast. Only way to explain it.
Yep, I'm very disappointed that Waterworld didn't go through. East vs. West seems to be the main reason.
