2012 Best Attraction Tournament: It's Tough to Be a Bug! vs. Poseidon's Fury
We're starting the third round of the 2012 Theme Park Insider Tournament
with a match-up from the Best Theme Park Show bracket.
Our contestants today include the 4D show that occupies the iconic Tree of Life at Disney's Animal Kingdom versus a walk-through adventure from Universal's Islands of Adventure park.
It's Tough to Be a Bug! - at Disney's Animal Kingdom and Disney California Adventure
Poseidon's Fury - at Universal's Islands of Adventure
Tell us in the comments why you picked the one you did. Voting is open for 24 hours.
Tuesday: 2. Haunted Mansion vs. 10. Splash Mountain in the Best Themed Ride bracket.
ITTBAB wins here. Maybe if it was the original version of PF it would be different.
I voted ITTBAB. Poseidon has gone too far in this tournament.
Never seen either, but since A Bug's Life is probably my least favorite Pixar film (I couldn't even sit through the whole thing) I had to go with the Greek god of the Sea.
Quite honestly, I had to see just how Poseidon's Fury made it this far. I think, in each previous round, I voted for it. Which, honestly, makes me feel kinda dirty.
Still refuse to vote for a Harry Potter expansion placeholder.
Tough to Be a Bug hands down. How did Poseidon's Fury even make the list?
I'm one of those rare birds I guess that really enjoys Fury. The water vortex, the ambience of the building, the water show. I love Bug too, but I went with Fury because I experienced it first and still enjoy it.
Mark, I always enjoyed PF too, but not sure it really deserves to go much further in the competition if I'm honest.
Always enjoyed both, but my grandkids seem to have lost interest in Poseidon's Fury so have to give the nod to ITTBB.
The Poseidon water vortex is awesome, as is the amazing "twist" at the end. But if there's an attraction in Universal's theme park chain that most needs a video upgrade, it's the way-too-'90s-cheesy "battle" in this one.
I personally think PF could have been an extremely successful attraction, but every attempt to revamp it after the original version was worse and worse.
My vote goes to bugs because its one of the best 4D show
Mark: You are so right about PF. Great theme idea, one of the best outside themed areas, great vortex. But the show is so poorly written. Bad story, bad plot, way too corny. It could have been a great attraction. But it's only very average. It aspired but never ascended.
It's tough to be a Bug: Is an example of a bad movie (by pixar standards) making a great attraction. It's probably overseeded (ncaa tourney term) but easily beats PF. Which for my money would be a great re themed Ministry of Magic with the final scene being a magic duel with updated technology
Poseidon's Fury gets my vote because I´m sick of 4D movies in themeparks. Both attractions have an awesome exterier that doesn´t live up to the experiance inside but the water vortex comes close and is awesome!
Gotta go with Poseidon's Fury because I've never checked out Be a Bug! Plus I'm half Greek, so I'm biased towards Poseidon!
