The Ultimate Disney Parks Attraction Bracket -- Round Seven, Day Two
Welcome...to the Twilight Zone.
Well, friends, the day is almost here. We’re almost at the big finish of the Ultimate Disney Parks Attraction bracket. One-half of the Top Two is already completed, and while I would love to insert some pithy commentary here about whichever ride between Pirates of the Caribbean and The Haunted Mansion survived yesterday’s battle, I am writing these words yesterday (AKA Tuesday, the 15th). So I have no idea what won!
And I am not entirely sure I know what’s going to win today! Let’s find out together.

(3) Tower of Terror vs. (3) Big Thunder Mountain Railroad (WDW): First of all, I should note that I am generally fine with the Final Four of our bracket. The four remaining attractions, he said as he typed an hour before the Final Four officially began, are all stone-cold classics. If they were songs, you would say they slapped and/or banged. (Do people still say that? Can we stop?)
The point here is, I am fine with any of these four winning the whole thing, and thus, I am fine with either the Tower of Terror or Big Thunder Mountain Railroad winning today’s match. And while I don’t vote, if I did…well, I do have a preference. And that would be the Tower of Terror. There’s only one of its kind now, truly, and as much as I miss it in Disney California Adventure, being the one of its kind makes it all the more special. And I do love the Big Thunder Mountain…but there’s two of its kind. (I don’t know why that matters to me — I’ve seen a few folks comment as much wondering why the duplication of a ride should sway a vote one way or the other. I don’t have a great answer for you! Sometimes the heart wants what it wants.)
I say Tower. How about you?
