Monday Top 10: The Most Hated Attractions in America
Written by Robert Niles
Sure, we love to celebrate the best of the best in theme park attractions around the world. But, now and then, we just can't help but wallow in reliving a terrible experience. Maybe it's cathartic. Or, perhaps, some of us secretly love the campiness of a really terrible theme park attraction. So today we, uh, "honor" the 10 attractions that occupy the absolute bottom of the reader ratings here on Theme Park Insider.Tweet
Note that we're calling these the most "hated" attractions in America, not the "worst." Undoubtedly, the "worst" attraction in America exists in some unheralded carnival known only to the unfortunate few unlucky enough to find it. If you are among those poor souls, please tell us about that horrible experience in the comments, and we will all laugh and join in the schadenfreude.
In the meantime, we present the lowest-rated rides and shows from the country's top parks. Whether they are old, ill-conceived, or just darned painful, these are the attractions that not only ticked off a bunch of their visitors, but did so on the biggest stages in the industry. Consider yourself warned.
