Readers' Opinions

Here's to hoping ITtBaB wins! Shrek is ok, but it's a little boring even for me, a Shrek fan!

I went with ITTTBAB because of the creativity Disney displayed in all facets of the show experience here: the theatre, effects, and movie itself are all excellent in my opinion.

I'd actually put Sesame Street second because I thought the film was pretty funny.

For whatever reason, Shrek doesn't really do much for me though the anti-Disney jokes are funny and the moving chairs are cool.

It was a tough call between Shrek and ITTBAB, I had to go with ITTBAB in the end, the hornet sting and the "excuse me, coming through" at the end always makes me laugh at the reactions of folks that don't know what's coming.

I voted for It's Tough to be a Bug, mainly for the fact that nearly every time I see this, upwards of 10 kids have to be taken from the theater, crying. It seems to be too scary for the little ones...

When did Sesame Street start at Williamsburg? We were there this summer and the 4D movie was a pirate movie starring the late, great Leslie Nielson.

I'm usually a Universal nut, but I'm so over Shrek. I still have much love for It's Tough to be a Bug...so there went my vote. :)

My bad on BGW. Didn't realized that they'd swapped out for the Pirates show, which has had such poor ratings on TPI in the past that there's no way it gets into the tournament. (Maybe it makes it into the most-hated-attraction tournament....)

I've only seen two of these (It's Tough to Be a Bug and Shrek), and it's no contest. I wasn't a big fan of Shrek, despite the technology involved with the seats. It's an okay show, but It's Tough to Be a Bug is more enjoyable.

Why isn't Mickey's PhilHarmagic part of this vote? ;p

ITTBAB is my favorite of this bunch. It illicits a wider variety of audience responses than any other 4D show I have seen. I especially love the way unsuspecting and unprepared parents are left struggling to curtail the terrified screams of their younglings! Why do parents just assume because something is Disney it is suitable for all ages? Real parents do their research ahead of time, not in the field!

Incidentally, I thought the new Sesame Street show replaced Pirates 4D at BG TAMPA a while back? Yay or nay?

Spellbreaker I am certain is on at Legoland Windsor. I may be wrong though as my last trip was a while ago.

Seen none, I'll pass. Looking forward to tomorrow's vote. Couple of rides I really like will/should be in that category. I'll be p.o.'d if my favorite steelie is not...and I have a hunch it won't be. Hope I'm wrong.

You forgot to mention that Sesame Street 4D is also at Busch Gardens Tampa.
From Andrew Carrieri on February 7, 2012 at 8:17 PM
@James-you are correct but according to the attraction listings on this site, Sesame Street 4D at both Busch Gardens parks has reverted back to Pirates 4D a la Honey I Shrunk the Audience to EO. I didn't even realize this until now...I just saw Sesame Street at BGW last April and assumed it was still open.
From James Rao on February 8, 2012 at 4:22 AM
From what I can tell, SS and Pirates split time at BGT, but not at BGW where it is all Pirates all the time. Ugh.

In all honesty, probably both shows need to go, and a new high-quality adventure should be produced.

The Bugs get my vote. No matter how many time we see / experience it we always enjoy it.
From Seth Kubersky on February 8, 2012 at 8:55 AM
Sesame runs at BGT and also USJ, I believe. Most uncomfortable soaking water effects I've ever suffered through in a 4d film...
