Honoring the Top 10 New Attractions in America in 2015

December 28, 2015, 4:55 PM · What was your favorite new attraction that debuted in 2015?

Every year in July, we honor Theme Park Insider readers' collective choice for the best new attraction from the previous 12 months with a Theme Park Insider Awards. But that eligibility period doesn't line up with the calendar year. So for my Orange County Register column this week, I looked back at your collective reader ratings over 2015 to come up with a Top 10 list of the best new attractions for the calendar year.

With six more months of ratings, the order has changed a bit from what we honored in July, plus I took the liberty of adding an "attraction" from the food & beverage side of the business that I thought worthy of including. This list for the Register features only attractions from the United States, so some great new rides and shows — including Baron 1898 at Efteling and King Triton's Concert at Tokyo DisneySea — were not included.

Reader ratings are ongoing here at Theme Park Insider, and you do not need to register to rate the rides, shows, restaurants and hotels we list on the site. (Hotel restaurants are available for rating, too! Just click to the hotel's listing page to see the links.) Please start at themeparkinsider.com/reviews and follow the links for the parks and resorts you visited this year. (You must register in order to submit written reviews. But registration is free and only takes a moment.)

Thank you to everyone who submitted ratings in 2015, and please keep the ratings coming in 2016, as we work to select next year's best new attractions!
