October 13, 2014 (Orlando, FL) – In 2010, Behind the Thrills debut a string of polls that gave theme parks across the nation the chance to gather their fans and get them vote for their favorites. Fans from across the nation voted for their favorites in 2010, 2011, and 2012. Fans will have the chance to name the best of 2013 in the fourth annual “Thrill Weekly Poll” on Behind the Thrills beginning October 14th. The Winners of each category will be named “Best-of” in the fourth annual “Best of” awards.
