For me it is the Horror Make Up Show at USF

Maybe the blandest description for any attraction in any major theme park.

Did not visit it for the first six months we had annual passes, after my family went once we were hooked and visit almost once a week ever since.

I love the pirate themed Tom Sawyer Island at Disneyland. Lots of fun, lots of things to explore, and not that popular.

Nice to see our Dutch beloved 'Dreamflight' on this list, it truly is one of the most beautiful traditional dark rides out there. But the video you're showing is an older version, just last year the attraction had a big makeover and especially from 1/2 of the ride there are some new effects like the new Star tunnel connecting the fairy garden with the planet room and in the final scene a new seining troll was added, besides that everything was refurbished, new flowers lighting and so on.. you can find a video of the newer version here: http://youtu.be/nEs78tuoX3I

In addition to the excellent Marvel Cave, Silver Dollar City has several underrated attractions such as Grandfather's Mansion (a walkthru mystery house with slanted floors, mirrored walls, and other effects), the Flooded Mine (a Disney-on-a-budget boat ride/shooter), and Fire in the Hole (a dark ride/coaster hybrid). Oh, and there's deservedly high rated Outlaw Run too, so why aren't you planning a visit today?

Oddly enough, another one of my favorite underrated attractions is at a Six Flags park. It is Yosemite Sam and the Gold River Adventure at Six Flags Over Texas. Sure it is a bit dilapidated because Six Flags is a terrible company, but this slow moving boat ride still delights. In the hands of a company that took care of its attractions, Yosemite Sam and the Gold River Adventure would be a real treasure.

One of my favorite (keeping with the mostly Foreign Parks) is DLP's Alice's Curious Labyrinth. It is both fun and slightly challenging. I also enjoy a good caucus race!

Yes, I would also like to see a list of the most overrated attractions (in your humble opinion)!

Just returned from Tokyo Disney Resort, and was hoping to see Sinbad's Storybook Voyage on this list. Other than the obvious Journey to the Center of the Earth, and the Tokyo version of Tower of Terror, Sinbad's was the one attraction that has really stuck with me since returning home. I blame that catchy tune! It surprised me how much I enjoyed that ride (and the < 5 min wait!)

I'm gonna cheat a little bit here and say the Magic Kingdom monorail at night. There is no better feeling than the one you get as you pass the entrance plaza and look down an illuminated Main Street full of people. One of the truly perfect theme park moments.

In general, meet and greets are underrated. Some say they are not attractions. I think they add a lot of value to the trip.

With all of the Twitter haters of The new Escape from Gringots ride, you might have to add that ride to this list....

Easy: Universal Hollywood House of Horrors. I think it is so good that it is worth a trip for JUST. THAT. ATTRACTION. Of course, if you hate to be scared or don't like haunted house rides, then you would not like it, but, if you do, it is beyond awesome. They really, really should put this in Orlando.

Another vote here for Sinbad's Storybook Voyage at DisneySEA.

Houdini's Great Escape is a quite odd and unexpected ride at Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey. Probably the most themed ride in the park and the illusion is quite cool even if you understand what's going on. Not to mention, great family ride.
