Congratulations to 2010 Best Theme Park Attraction bracket winners
You've voted over the past two weeks, and now we have the winners in the four brackets of the 2010 Best Theme Park Attraction Tournament
Congratulations to the creative and operations teams behind these wonderful attractions, as well as all the ones selected for this year's tournament.
I think these titles are all well deserved and matched. I know some people are surprised that older rides did well this year, but who says newer is always better?
WHOOT! Fantasmic! is the best!
And again, the whole coaster vs theme ride debate will commence.
wow... i never thought a woodie could win... but i guess it is a lot better than i thought. Haunted Mansion was also a big surprise...i even think that florida's is better and it still won... and even against pirates! and it beat Tower of Terror(still wowing me because there wasn't a large voting plunge for a website like last years). Phillar and Fantasmic deserved their wins, though others would have been fine too.
3/4 of these winners make sense. I am very disappointed that Disneyland's Haunted Mansion emerged out of the Best Themed Attraction bracket. It is a fine attraction, but the best? Puh-lease! As much as I would like to support a themed attraction for the overall tournament winner, I just can't do it in good conscience.
Who's picking with their heart? I'll take a good coaster over a dark ride anyday.
The Voyage is a
FWIW, we had more number-one seeds make the final four of our tournament than the college basketball selection committee had for the one in Indianapolis this weekend.
Well, it looks like I'm voting AGAINST Haunted Mansion regardless of what it is as I believe all 3 others are better than it. I'm a fan of HM, but this is Disneyland's not WDW's. I still can't believe that PotC lost to HM. But whatever happens, these top four are still great attractions!
Why did you take the seeding numbers down yesterday?
Haunted Mansion is evergreen. People can dismiss it because it's a 41 year old attraction. Sensibilities today certainly aren't the same as they were in 1969. Contemporary stories are paced much differently, special effects have improved, ride systems and show control are leaps and bounds above Mansion's Apollo-age technology.
I would say the same things you just said about Disneyland's PotC, and then add the fact that at least there are a few minor thrills on top of all the great immersive story-telling, as well as some relevancy with today's generation due to the hugely successful feature films. Then throw in the Blue Bayou setting and a Monte Cristo, and the only thing I can surmise is that too few of the voters understand the vast difference between Disneyland's Pirates and Magic Kingdom's Pirates....
Congrats to Holiday World and the Voyage. Great park, great owners, great rides! Voyage is one of the best coasters I have ever ridden. Glad to see it getting the notoriety and respect it deserves!
Haunted Mansion is the single greatest ride I've ever ridden. I'm surprised it won, but not upset by any means. It deserves its spot.
Rode it twice, almost blacked out both times. The turns were a bit rough, so I wouldn't rank this as one of my favorites. Probably won't ride it again.
