2012 Best Attraction Tournament: Best Demonstration Show?
Written by Robert Niles
Long before the era of DVD extras, if you wanted to know how filmmakers created their movie magic, you probably learned about that while watching a theme park show. Today's nominees in the 2012 Theme Park Insider Tournament are readers' top five demonstration shows, passing along the insiders' secrets and techniques of special effects, make-up and animation.Tweet
Four of these are obvious entries in the category. I've included Disaster! for its demonstration elements at the beginning of the attraction. Disaster! also includes the old Earthquake ride, but the attraction didn't rate highly enough to be eligible in the dark ride categories, so I slipped it in here. If you're wondering about Universal Studios Hollywood's Studio Tour, that attraction is more ride than demonstration show these days, and was included among the top five in the narrated ride category earlier in the tournament.
Voting is open for 24 hours.
Disaster! - at Universal Studios Florida
Lights! Camera! Action! Hosted by Steven Spielberg - at Universal Studios Singapore
Special Effects Stage - at Universal Studios Hollywood
Universal's Horror Make-up Show - at Universal Studios Florida
