Don't get me wrong, most of us wimpy and weak Disney Fanboys like a good coaster as much as the next burly and bruising Cedar Point Jock, but in the end, to us a coaster is still just a coaster, while a good story lasts forever (I think Marty Sklar of WDI once said something very similar).
So be warned: most of the voters in this contest will indeed give props to story over thrills, theming over speed, and immersion over height. Accept that fact, and move on. Don't hate the playa, and all that...
But, trust me, the dichotomy between Theme Parks and Iron Ride Parks is the spice of life...and the comments will be ablaze with supporters of both sides. It will be a hoot!
And in the end, because every ride/attraction in this tournament is worthy of some measure of praise, it is us, the voters, who are the true winners!

Incidentally, I am getting a shirt made for this tournament. It will be a black "T-shirt" with a big picture of Tinkerbell on the front and a series of heart-shaped Disney Princess lockets imprinted on each sleeve. And in true Rod Smart fashion the name on the back of the jersey will be: "He Hate Me."
Anyone else as fired up as I am!!!!!????
I'll be surprised if some of the perennials don't win out here.......and rightly so. At the end of the day : if more people like a particular ride and vote for it then it deserves to win no matter what Park it's in.
Perhaps some of the overboard thrill junkies will still be shaking too much to hit the keyboard to vote( lol )
And yes, this was a blast last year! Really looking forward to it!
And James come on, we all know Mr Toads Wild Ride will return form the dead to take it all.
Still, here are my final four guesses:
Tower of TerrorThe Incredible HulkExpedition EverestThe Amazing Adventures of Spiderman
Same picks as last year.
It surprised me though that BG-Williamsburg has 3 coasters in the tournament, while it looks like Kings Island and Kings Dominion have none.
I kind of expected one of the woodies from KI to be there, and maybe the Dominator at KD. Guess they aren't as popular as I thought they were. :-)
