2012 Best Attraction Tournament: Best Themed Roller Coaster?
Written by Robert Niles
Welcome to the first contest of the 2012 Theme Park Insider Best Attraction Tournament. Today, we're voting for the Best Themed Roller Coaster.Tweet
We're looking for a winner in this category that represents the best blend of thrills with theming and storytelling. The winner - in any category - should be an engaging ride that keeps you thinking about the experience long after you've exited, and wanting to ride again. If you get off a particular ride thinking "meh," or "was something broken?," or "I think I'm broken," pick another contestant.
That said, here are your nominees, selected based on highest average reader ratings in this category. You can click the links for descriptions and readers' reviews of each version of each ride.
Big Thunder Mountain Railroad - Your highest-rated version is at Disneyland Paris, your most-often-rated version is at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom. Other versions are at Disneyland and Tokyo Disneyland.
Expedition Everest - at Disney's Animal Kingdom
Space Mountain - Your top-rated version is at Disneyland, and your most-rated version is at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom. Other versions are at Hong Kong Disneyland, Disneyland Paris and Tokyo Disneyland.
