Wanna know the best way to keep up with the tournament, so you never miss a vote?
Thanks, again, for voting today! Tomorrow morning, we'll get started with a match-up from the Best Roller Coaster bracket: 5. Holiady World's The Voyage vs. 13. Dollywood's Mystery Mine
As much as I enjoy a whimsical ride on Splash Mountain, I can't vote against Spidey! This innovative ride used such ground-breaking technology when it debuted, and it still ceases to amaze! One of the best rides ever in my book!
Tough choice to knock Splash Mountain out of the running here... But, Spidey is definitely the superior ride experience.
Spiderman is a fantastic ride. Love it. I always vote for it. Living in Orlando I will say that I ride Spiderman much more often than Splash Mountain
Now this is a battle...tough tough choices..i honestly don't know what to pick..
I sadly can't vote on this round since I've never been on Spider Man. It is too bad such a good ride as Splash Mountain will probably be knocked out this early.
Spider man is cool,, But come on Splash Mountain is GREAT!!!
As tough a pairing as can be. The greatest flume ride versus the greatest Universal ride. I have to give it to Spidey if only for the fact that it is hard to continually ride Splash over and over.
Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man: A decade old and still without peer.
If it were not for the fact that there are NO hippos, Spidey is a far more impressive show.
This is really close, but im afraid i gotta go with Disney and vote for Splash Mtn. Its the most superior log flume in the entire world and the themeing is great!
I voted for Spiderman, but may log off and cancel my vote by giving a nod to Splash.
Tough choice, but I voted for Spidey. It debuted 11 years ago, and it's still on the cutting edge. That's really a remarkable achievement.
I can't believe it's this close. Sure, Splash Mountain is great, but there's nothing else remotely like Spider-Man out there. Spider-man should be winning by more than 2%.
Splash mountain is cool but seriously Spider-Man is the best. Spidey is just awesome and features an overall better experience from the beginnning of the queue to the last scene of the ride. Both are the best of their kind but Spidey is just better.
My vote went to splash mountain hands down. I finally got to ride spiderman last year and was so excited because everyone said it was so good but I honestly didnt think it was that great or fun at all :/ Splash mountain is a way better experience in my opinion
Seriously? This has to be the lack of Universal attention to this, cause there is no way Splash Mountain. Yes, Splash Mountain is a great flume, but come on. Spider-Man is beyond great.
I gotta go with my Disney and say Splash Mountain.
Well, considering that I voted against Splash Mountain in the previous round, this one's a no-brainer for me. (I still don't like getting soaked!) Go Spidey! Awesome, fun ride (especially if you sit in the front row and don't have heads in your way)!
Five years ago, no question. Spiderman.
Its a close one!
Ouch. It seems I've gone 0-4 for the day. While Spiderman is a great ride, it's heard for me to look past the video screens. I much prefer attractions where the story is told through actual scenery and sets and doesn't rely on video.
Strange things could happen!
Spider-Man's had close calls before. Last year, it beat Kraken in the third round 53%-47% and Incredible Hulk Coaster 51%-49% before losing to Millennium Force in the final four. And in the 2008 tournament, it faced Pirates of the Caribbean in the final four and won 56%-44%. This year, it'll face Pirates again, in round three.
Sorry to see Splash go, but Spidey is too dazzling to take an early bow out of this contest.
Can't measure greatness by how technologically advanced it is. Splash Mountain FTW!
... In my book.
