    The DLR Best Scene Tournament - Part 5: RollerCoaster Showdown!

    {Some conditions of the tournament have changed, which are in the second paragraph}

    The DLR Best Scene Tournament is to find out which attraction within all of DLR has the absolute best scene. How it'll work is there will be a list of all or most of the scenes within the given attraction which one could vote for. After 2 days, the poll will close and a winner will be announced and the winning scene will compete with the other winning scenes for a finale battle for DLR'S ABSOLUTE BEST SCENE. To be fair, you must vote for the scene's present state and not judge it on it's previous merits. Not all rides will be put into the tournament, as the process would take too long. Only the rides with the most theatrical presentation will be included; motion simulators, 3D attractions, interactive/control rides, shows, parades & walkthrough attractions will be exempt.

    The following rides will be incorporated: Indiana Jones Adventure, Pirates of the Caribbean, Haunted Mansion, Haunted Mansion Holiday, Splash Mountain, Tower of Terror, all Fantasyland dark rides including Winnie the Pooh & Monsters Inc. (which will compete in one single thread). Rollercoasters NOW will be included as long as they're indoor sets within the ride, so therefore portions of Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Matterhorn Bobsleds and Space Mountain will have a single "Best Scene within a Rollercoaster" thread where only one scene can come out victorious and advance on to the final showdown between all of the scenes.

    So let's get started with one of these new exciting changes, shall we? Disneyland revolutionized the rollercoaster with the opening of the Matterhorn Bobsleds and has continued on with the tradition of creating some of the best thrill attractions around the world. At DLR, the four most notable are Matterhorn Bobsleds, Space Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and California Screamin'. The first three will be the ones we'll choose from since they are the most thematic. Each just as beloved as the next and each with a twist and turn more exciting then the last, all these attractions are classics in the eyes of the resort with huge attendance numbers for all. Since the scenes are scarce between the three, VOTE FOR EACH RIDE at least ONCE. Remember, only one scene will advance to the finals!

    Matterhorn Bobsleds - Snowy Dark Lift
    Matterhorn Bobsleds - Yeti Encounters
    Matterhorn Bobsleds - Splash Down
    Space Mountain - Prepare for Take Off
    Space Mountain - Space Travel
    Space Mountain - Return to the Station/Photo Op
    BTMR - Dark Tunnel/Rainbow Bat Cavern First Lift
    BTMR - Animals on the Hillside (Goat with Dynamite)

    I always thought the snowy dark lift on Matterhorn was oddly entrancing

    I love the snowy dark lift on the Matterhorn.

    Also, is the "space travel" scene the calm, slow part between the lift and the wild crazy fast parts? Because I love that part, where you're majestically and peacefully floating through space all the while knowing that an adventure is right around the corner.

    Precisely. It is between. But one could count all that as one whole scene since it's all in one show room. So one could say that the majority of the ride is their favorite part (which is the thrill ride, roller coaster prominent portion). They may be just stars floating around but I suppose it still is a scene and is still telling a story since we go from lift off to traveling through space and then coming back to the Space Mountain ship for docking.

    Space travel is so openended. It gives you infinite adventures.
    The five worst crimes in the world, in no particular order, are genocide, rape, murder, torture, and flash photography on Space Mountain.

    Why? The goat trick is one of the best things about the ride
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    I never could get the goat trick to work, but the goat with the dynamite has always amused me, ever since I was a small child.
