(FWIW, we've got one more category of live shows coming up, for demonstration shows such as Universal's Horror Make-up Show.)
Voting is open for 24 hours, and campaigning is encouraged, through the comments, Facebook and Twitter.
Donkey Live - at Universal Studios Singapore
Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor - at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom
Mystery Lodge - at Knott's Berry Farm
Poseidon's Fury - at Universal's Islands of Adventure
Turtle Talk with Crush - at Epcot, Disney California Adventure and Tokyo DisneySea
Tomorrow: It's time to vote for the Best Simulator Attraction.
I've never seen the others but:
Mystery Lodge would be second as the effects look interesting.
Monsters Inc. would come in third because of the jokes: I'm sure some are bad but these might make it more funny (i.e. the jokes may so bad they are actually funny).
I'd put Turtle Talk and Donkey in a tie for last.
I will vote for Robert's pick (one I have not visited) because it's his site and I would like for at least one vote to go his way.
And Dom, I'll have to see what the competition is tomorrow. I know my favorite won't be on there, so I'll be looking for something else. And I liked Star Tours, despite my loathing for all things Star Wars.
In the case of the two Disney shows, I appreciate the technology involved and I think both are very well done shows. Still, the only one of the entries that ever really 'got' me was Knott's Mystery Lodge. I figured it for a Pepper's Ghost show, and appreciated it for that, but when the narrator vanished at the end of the show, i was amazed. For that, it gets my vote.
Maybe this is like the Intamin vote, with the 2 Disney attractions taking away from each other, leading to Poseidon's Fury winning (like how MF and Maverick hurt each other, allowing Cheetah Hunt to win a split vote.) Who knows...
This tournament is having a lot of early surprises. First Millenium Force and Maverick losing, and now an attraction that seemingly is not long for this world winning. Man, I don't like Star Tours chances with the recent results...
Incidentally, why is "abbreviation" such a long word? :)
