Wow, this is gonna be fun! I foresee an epic battle between Haunted Mansion and Pirates to see which one goes up against FJ for the big prize. I'm not placing any bets on either of those votes :-)

The Voyage is the only non-Disney/Universal/SeaWorld attraction left. The rest of the world has their rally cry: "Go Holiday World!"

I agree Gio. Spiderman in HD is just flat out amazing and better than TSM.

Manta is the only thing I know I will definitely vote for. Everything else is pretty tough.

Interesting to 1/4 of the attractions left are from IOA. Though I can't think how PF's long can hold on much longer.

As great as PotC is Popeye and Bluto should give that ride a good run.

As I do see Manta sending Hulk back for some more gamma rays

But it will be interesting to see how many voters take into account Spidey's upgrades albeit most will view it online in a collosual battle with ToT

I'd like to thank everyone for their participation as we got through what were, let's face it, the preliminaries.

This is where the real fun starts, with some truly awesome matchups over the next three weeks. You've set this up well with your preliminary votes. Let's enjoy the tournament going forward.

It looks like this round has more balanced match-ups. This is going to be good.

Some brutally difficult choices coming up...

Am I the only one who finds it wierd that ToT is not favored in any comments ? I still think that it is a good mix of thrill and theme ? Plus it has been around for a while, and it (in my opinion) still is better then all of the new rides out now !
