Best of the Best - Rnd 4, Match 3: Splash Mountain v Indiana Jones Adventure

So I thought it might be fun to find out the best and most beloved attraction in Disneyland. I'll pit two attractions and you vote for which one should move on to the next round. You can justify it for any reason you want. Try to sway those who have voted with your reasoning. The attractions will be randomly chosen. Just think, if both attractions were hanging off a ledge, which one would you put all your strength in saving?

I picked Splash Mountain. It's always been one of my favorites (even though I don't really like getting wet!).

That's a tough one, but my DS (9) loves Indiana Jones and doesn't really like Splash Mountain so I picked that one. Now if I had asked DS (7) he would have said Splash.

This might be the toughest match up we get. I agree, I don't always want to get wet, but I always like an Adventure. Indy also scores on the better stand-by line. However, Splash Mountain has more re-ride-ability due to the posing for the picture at the end. Makes it more of a shared experience. I'm going to think about this a bit longer.

I can't allow my favorite ride in DL to lose, especially after making it this far! Vote Indiana Jones, it's a ride for all seasons and all ages!





...and I feel like a spokesperson

Still weighing out the pros and cons of bith rides. Getting wet Kate at night might not be much fun, but it usually means less lines towar park closing. And Indy does break down more often

It could just be that Indy really needs that refurb right now, and after that it won't break down as often.

When we went in 2011, we rode Splash about 10 times at night without ever getting out of the boat. Didn't even get that wet. It was awesome
