Well, if you're going to leave the country, might I suggest that you at least go to a world-class theme park? ;^)
Yes, this is my flimsy excuse to celebrate Election Day with yet another Theme Park Insider poll. But instead of voting on anything actually important, we're going to vote on which theme park outside the United States would be your preferred choice for spending a self-imposed exile. I'm giving you five choices - one each from Disney and Universal, plus three other choices. We've got three European parks and two Asian - if that makes a difference to you.
Let's pick the park that best represents your ideal mix of theme, decor, narrative and thrill. And that includes attractions you'll want to experience again and again and again - for at least the next four years. :^p
I'm hoping that some of our international readers will jump into the comments to make the case for one or more of these parks. I've visited the Asian parks on the list, and if you by some chance have missed my many, many links to them, here again are my multi-part trip reports from Tokyo DisneySea and Universal Studios Singapore from last winter. Frequent readers will have seen some my recent "Attraction of the Week" posts featuring rides from Europa Park and Efteling. Rides from Port Aventura will be showing up in that feature in the weeks to come.
So, let's embrace the worst case scenario, shall we? Your guy lost. Where to next?
Don't wait to vote! These polls close shortly after midnight, Pacific time. And on Theme Park Insider, campaigning in the voting place (i.e. the comments) is not only allowed - it's encouraged!
(Of course, if you're an American 18 or over and haven't voted for real yet - please go out and do it today. It's your right and don't let anyone take it away from you.)Tweet
Not that I will, though, no matter which political candidate wins. I spent too much on my Disneyland Passport.
Mr Niles is correct, go out there and vote, it is your civic duty. However, don't just vote to vote...or because one person is "cool" or you like the other person's religion better. Be an informed voter. Do the research. Ask others what they think. Don't live in an isolation chamber, if you have a certain political point of view find out what the other side believes...and why.
Voting is not just a right...it is a RESPONSIBILITY.
And I voted in "real life" at 6am today.
I'm actually moving to Abu Dhabi on Friday so I'm going to have to do a write in vote for Ferrari World. Having already been there I know it's not a great choice, but at least they have the fastest coaster in the world.
But from the list of choices I'd choose Tokyo Disney Sea as Robert has made it look so attractive.
FWIW, I have emerged from my isolation chamber and will cast my uninformed vote for Mickey Mouse shortly. Just gotta get done at Motor Vehicles first.... Ugh! Who would have thought it would be such a hassle to register a vehicle that uses a common trackless ride system??!!
PS Robert, I am rereading your book on my iPhone while I wait... The story about the Grandma leaping onto the Tom Sawyer raft is still my favorite!
Of course, if I were to actually leave the continent I'd probably move to the United Kingdom and have Alton Towers and Thorpe Park nearby.
