2013 Theme Park Insider Tournament: Transformers: The Ride vs. Splash Mountain
Written by Robert Niles
Today we feature the first Disney vs. Universal match-up in the 2013 Theme Park Insider Tournament, to select the world's best theme park attraction.
I must admit that I'd been looking forward to toady's match-up, ever since I seeded the brackets based upon Theme Park Insider readers' cumulative reader ratings of the many attractions listed on the site. This was to be a long-awaited head-to-head match-up between the two best new attractions from last year, which also happen to be the two among the top new attractions of the past decade.
And then you went ahead and voted Splash Mountain ahead of Radiator Springs Racers in the first round's closest match, 52%-48%. Such much for my plans.
So here's your new match-up: Transformers: The Ride, which defeated Men in Black Alien Attack 53%-47% in the first round,
…versus Splash Mountain.
You're standing in the middle of some bizarre hybrid park with both rides, but you can go on only one of them. Which will it be? If you've not been on both before, follow the links above to do a little research to help inform your decision. Or head into the comments to see what other Theme Park Insider readers have to say.
