Top 5 Attractions of 2013


In 2013, we saw wooden coasters do amazing new things, watched as giant robots battled across Orlando, pulled an all niter with Monsters, and walked with the dead, through cabins and woods and many other dark and demented places. With so many amazing things that happened in 2013 in the amusement industry, we are really excited for what 2014 brings. Before we finally close the book on 2013, however, we will pay tribute to the best Attractions in the amusement industry for 2013 – as voted by you!

Attractions are everywhere at theme parks. They’re one of the biggest draws in every single amusement park. Attraction is also a very broad term, which pretty much includes anything that you can ride. Roller coasters, dark rides, water rides – you name it! It’s an attraction. For this poll, we first asked our readers to nominate attractions. From the list of nominees submitted, we selected the top 30 nominations to go to the final round.

And the runner-ups for Attraction of 2013 is as follows:

5. Millennium Force at Cedar Point

4. Radiator Springs Racers at Disney’s California Adventure

3. Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey at Universal Orlando’s Islands of Adventure

2. Outlaw Run at Silver Dollar City

And the winner… Drum roll please?
