2012 Best Attraction Tournament: Best Illusion Show?
Written by Robert Niles
Obviously, live shows had to be part of the 2012 Theme Park Insider tournament. We've already honored the best live musical shows, but in going through the reader ratings submitted to the site, several non-musical shows stood out, too. These top-rated shows are ones where, well, not everything is as it seems. For that reason, I'm calling this category the "illusion" shows. Maybe it looks like a recorded movie, but the characters talk with the audience. Or something is there, and then it isn't. Whatever the illusion, these shows engage their viewers with trickery that distinguish them from other theme park attractions.Tweet
(FWIW, we've got one more category of live shows coming up, for demonstration shows such as Universal's Horror Make-up Show.)
Voting is open for 24 hours, and campaigning is encouraged, through the comments, Facebook and Twitter.
Donkey Live - at Universal Studios Singapore
Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor - at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom
