2012 Best Attraction Tournament: Best Arcade Dark Ride?
Written by Robert Niles
A ride and a game, all in one? Today's category in the 2012 Theme Park Insider Tournament is Best Arcade Dark Ride, honoring those attractions that blend theme park experiences with video games. The winner in this category should be a challenging game that's fun to play and rewarding even for people who've played dozens of times. But it should also be a fully-immersive dark ride, with an engaging ride experience even for people who might not get into the full spirit of the game.Tweet
Based on your Theme Park Insider readers' ratings, here are the nominees, in alphabetical order:
Boo Blasters on Boo Hill - at Kings Dominion
Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters - at Disneyland, Tokyo Disneyland and Hong Kong Disneyland. Other versions include Buzz Lightyear Laser Blast at Disneyland Paris and the original, Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom.
Gobbler Getaway - at Holiday World
Men in Black Alien Attack - at Universal Studios Florida
Yeah, I know I've been asking you to campaign in the comments, but I'm sure everyone would also love to hear your tips, strategy and found easter eggs from each of these rides. (I also want to take a moment to apologize for the lack of good on-ride pictures to post today. I suspect that too many of you are too busy shooting targets to shoot photos?)
