Even if someone has already posted their answers, feel free to post your own, you might have a better insight into the new attractions. Please let us know if you have experienced the attraction, or if you are basing an opinion off of other’s reports, as I highly doubt someone has been to all ten of the parks listed above this year.
If we get enough participation, I have no problems doing more trivia challenges throughout the off season, but if you don’t care, I don’t care. This one is a bit of a softball to see if anyone is interested, obviously the difficulty in this can be notched much higher.
If you have trivia concepts that you have enjoyed in the past, please let me know and I will see about assembling it (I’m personally a big fan of the satellite image one, but let me know).
2. Mammoth, a water coaster at Holiday World. I'm not sure it was worth the money since it's only seasonal.
3a. Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom, a great interactive game in the park.
3b. Journey of the Little Mermaid, a relaxing dark ride with a great queue.
3c. Gaston's Tavern, a quick service with LeFou's Brew and Pork Shanks. No one like Gaston!
3d. Enchanted Tales With Belle, an interactive expierence. IMO, great AAs and themeing, but the meet and greet is eh.
3e. Ariel's Grotto, a meet and greet with Ariel in mermaid form.
3f. Bonjour! Village Gifts, a gift shop based on the book store in BATB.
3g. Storybook Circus, including Dueling Dumbos, Barnstormer, Pete's Silly Sideshow, Big Top Souvenirs, and Casey Jr. Splash Zone.
Overall, great additions and worth the money!
4. The Swarm, Europe's tallest wing coaster. Worth the money due to a record breaker.
5a. Carsland, a land based off of Cars featuring Radiator Springs Racers, Luigi's Flying Tires, and Mater's Junkyard Jamboree. Also featuring Cozy Cone Motel, Flo's V8 Café, and Ramone's.
5b. Buena Vista Street, a tribute to the classic Hollywood era with Carthay Circle.
Overall, the DCA expansion was worth it!
6. Transformers, a Spiderman style dark ride. It looks great and I can't wait for it to come to USF!
7. Kiddie land! Worth it? Not sure.
8a. Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem, a great replacement for Jimmy Neutron and a must ride!
8b. Universal's Cinematic Spectacular, a celebration for 100 years of Universal. Good, but it's a see it if you have time thing.
8c. Universal's Superstar Parade, an obvious attempt at Block Bash Party (R.I.P.)
8d. Spongebob Storepants, a store based on the classic cartoon (and by classic I mean pre 2004)
Overall, great improvements!
9. Wild Eagle, America's first winged coaster! Worth the money!
10. Turtletrek, a 360 degree 3D film. This is just a hold up for Antartica.
Out of the things I mentioned, I've only been to Storybook Circus, Sorcerers, and everything USF has (I plan on seeing FL when CM previews are done)
Been working on another one. Checking it out.....hopefully it is a little harder.
1. First midway cames that actually fit the theme instead of just thrown in : See IOA's, Animal Kingdom's and Sea World's
2. Hopefully eliminates long term the clutter of random games throughout USF
8f. London Waterfront: two years before the rest of "the land can not be named" opens half the walkways walls are gone and additionally preimuim viewing for USF's nightshow is open
Walt Disney World
Tokyo Disney Resort
