    Vote for Big Thunder Mountain.

    Over at themeparkinsider.com, they are having polls to decide what the best ride in America is, today Big Thunder Mountain faces off against Test Track and sadly Test Track is winning. Go to
    HTML Code:
    Themeparkinsider.com
    and vote for Big Thunder Mountain. Hurry, this poll ends tonight, possibly as earlier as 12:00 EST.

    Big Thunder Mountain is an extremely well themed ride, that has stood the test of time. Big Thunder Mountain has bats, stalagmites, dinosaur bones,an earthquake, a goatt with dynamite in it's mouth and more in an old Southwest setting. Test Track is just a ride through a warehouse, with the most painfully boring pre-show ever created.

    Vote Big Thunder Mountain.

    I think test track is better. Thunder Mountain is just a really well themed roller coaster.

    Okay, I voted.
    Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.

    You have the right to your opinion, but Test Track lacks the imagination that makes Disney rides great.

    When I was a little kid, there were two attractions that made me really want to go to WDW more than anything. I mean, when ever I thought of going to WDW, these were the two attractions I first thought of. Alien Encounter and Test Track. I could never say the same about Thunder Mountain. That might be why.

    I guess you just have a connection to Test Track. I have been riding BTM since I was 3 or 4 years old, and unlike some coasters I enjoyed back then, BTM is just as fun now as it ever was.

    I've never been on test track, but BTMR is not that thrilling. It's kind of a boring coaster...or as my child put it once, "this isn't even scream worthy."

    Thunder Mountain IS my childhood and what i grew up riding. I've never been on Test Track but i agree that the theming on BTMR can't be beat.

    Re: Vote for Big Thunder Mountain.

    I was looking at the other polls going on there, and they make no sense to me - Top Thrill Dragster vs Spaceship Earth? Pooh vs. TOT? In terms of what, exactly? These matchups seem pretty pointless.
    You don't need me or my ham, cheese, cheese, cheese, tomato, cheese, ham and tomato sandwiches. And cheese.

    Test Track has everything to do with what makes Disney great! Walt took invention and how things work and made it accessible to the public. Test Track shows aspects our current generation of cars and how they work. I wish they had this ride at DL because it would go hand in hand with Innoventions. Big Thunder is fun but Test Track is about the experience of technology and how things work.... That is Walt all the way!

    Re: Vote for Big Thunder Mountain.

    I guess the real question is which BTM are they referring to... WDW or DL? If it is Dl then BTM if it is WDW then Test Track... I am not a fan of their BTM... and if it really is the WDW BTM they are referring to then I would guess that this thread actually belongs in the WDW forum...

    They are talking about Disneyland's version. What don't you like about WDW's version? They are very similar.

    Yes everybody should vote for the Matterhorn. Matterhorn is currently in the lead, but only by 9 percent. Vote for the Matterhorn.
