    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?

    Round 5 - Match 2:

    Pirates of the Caribbean

    As nighttime bruises the waters of the bayou, cruise deep into the caverns where pirates carouse and behave most abominably. Fireflies light the way as you discover the adventures of these pillaging privateers — not to mention the shenanigans of Captain Jack Sparrow!

    Vs

    Big Thunder Mountain Railroad

    Hold on to your hats and glasses, because you're about to board a runaway mine train through twisting desert canyons, creaking mine shafts and pitch-black bat caverns on "the wildest ride in the wilderness!"

    Voting Ends in 24 Hours!

    This one is actually hard for me! POC is "iconic" and is usually the first thing I try to ride to get me in the "Disney" mood, but as far as coasters go, BTMRR is my favorite in the parks!

    I think Pirates will win on this DISBoard, but a poll in the parks would be won by Thunder Mountain.

    I think you are right. There is just something extra special about Pirates to true walt lovers/dis freaks (aka: us)! hehe But yea, Big Thunder is more thrilling and would most likely be the winner in a parks poll.
