2012 Best Attraction Tournament: Best Theme Park Playground?
Written by Robert Niles
Sick of waiting in lines? Looking for something more fun that sitting around watching shows and fake animals all day? (I kid, TH, I kid.) Then get yourself over to one of these top-rated theme park playgrounds.Tweet
We're looking to pick the best of the best in today's vote in the 2012 Theme Park Insider Best Attraction Tournament. Vote for the playground that best isolates you from the rest of the park, providing a unique, immersive environment that really engages your imagination. And one that's got a ton of neat stuff to play on and with, too. The winner in this vote should be someplace where you can run away and play for hours and never feel bored.
Here are your nominees, based on Theme Park Insider readers' ratings. (Note that I've made some changes since I first posted the brackets, due to me initially miscategorizing a couple attractions in the listings. Sorry.) The vote will be open for 24 hours. If you don't have a favorite already, please click through to the attraction descriptions and reader reviews, or read the comments below. If you do have a favorite, feel free to campaign in the comments and to drum up votes on Facebook and Twitter.
Camp Jurassic - at Universal's Islands of Adventure
Curious George Goes to Town - at Universal Studios Florida
Honey, I Shrunk the Kids Movie Set Adventure - at Disney's Hollywood Studios
Me Ship, The Olive - at Universal's Islands of Adventure
Tom Sawyer Island - Your best version is at Tokyo Disneyland, which remains the only of the three versions not to be substantially altered through closures and/or a pirate overlay. (But if you want to vote for TSI because of the pirate overlay at Disneyland, anyway, have at it.)
