"Just heard that the fire at Disney World's Tiki Room that Reedy Creek put out today actually started last week. No one had noticed."
"Guests were told there was no major damage to the Tiki Room, which caused 100 of them to walk immediately to City Hall and complain."
The jokes inspire me to ask a very important question for this week's vote: What is the worst theme park attraction in America?
Here are our candidates, the five major attractions which have pulled the lowest average reader scores in our Theme Park Insider ratings:
As Jeff Probst would say, "It's time to vote." If only the one with the most votes in this tally were voted off the theme park island....
Tell us, in the comments, why you voted for the one you did. And thank you, again, for reading Theme Park Insider.
There are not any big positives about it vs the other attractions.
Well, maybe this and Tuck em Buggies.
Tiki Room MK and Stitch at least has decient animatronics
Stitch is bad, too, but it does have some great AAs -- the ONLY saving grace for this attraction.
My personal pick for worst would be Disaster Transport at Cedar Point. What a terrible ride. The only reason to go on it is for the air conditioning.
We enjoy Stitch and the Tacky Tiki Room. Just can't be a fuddy duddy to enjoy.
Stitch is bad, but after I first hated it since they took away Alien Encounter, it is what it is and it's not the worst thing ever.
I still have yet to do the Tiki Room, almost went in last week, but kept walking.
I voted for Stitch, probably because I have avoided Narnia, and thankfuly, for good reason!
I haven't "ridden" this Narnia ride but it sounds like the ride to beat!
I voted for Stitch - just lame, lame, lame. Even my 12-year old nieces thought it was a complete joke. Bring back Alien Encounter!!
At least Stitch and the New Management Tiki Room have decent animatronics, which is enough to entertain me in almost any attraction.
But on reflection, there is nothing to redeem Caspian AT ALL, so I wish I'd gone for that instead of my knee-jerk ETR:UNM hatred.
Closing Caspian and making it a meet n greet would be better use of the space.
The only problem I have with Stitch is that it replaced a truly original and excellent attraction. Stitch is nowhere near as good, but for what it is it's pretty well done.
BTW: I contacted Disney shortly before Voyage of the Dawn Treader came out in theaters inquiring about what the plans were for the Prince Caspian attraction and whether it would be updated for the new film. Surprisingly, I got a response, sadly, the response given was not very encouraging:
"as of now, we do not have any plans to change the current
Narnia attractions to reflect the newest movie being released".
I haven't been to Dark Knight, so I can't speak to it. Nor have I seen Caspian, though I have been to the Original Narnia attraction. Getting to see the WETA props was cool, so I didn't mind going. And I've never been to DCA, so I can't comment on the buggies.
The Tiki Room, however, is a complete waste of space.
Outside of Disney, the High-Low Silos at Silver Dollar City are a tremendous waste of space. And, all those upcharge attractions at any theme/amusement park should be removed as well.
I disagree about Country Bears, Jungle Cruise and Carousel of Progress. Maybe some of the AAs should be upgraded, but all three are charming classics. I'm especialy glad that the Bears still perform at WDW long after they got banished from Disneyland.
Frankly, I don't think they can figure out something useful to actually go where Sounds Dangerous is, so I guess better to keep it and make use of the space.
I actually like The Enchanted Tiki Room Under New Management better than the old one, although I am certain I am in the minority. I didn't grow up with the old one, and I really like Zazu and Iago. Stitch is not my favorite attraction, but it's definitely not the worst. I have not had the pleasure(?) of experiencing the other 2 mentioned nominees.
