NPN December 2011 Poll Results

Last month's poll focused on finding out what was everyone's favorite "simulator on tracks" style ride, at least how I call it.  Disney has coined the ride system an Enhanced Motion Vehicle, though the system has been used by both Universal and Busch Entertainment.

The winner of this one was a landslide - The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man at Islands of Adventure took 43% of the total votes.  The ride quickly ascended to the dark ride fans hall of fame after it initially opened, and will now feature newly created digital projections sure to make riders' experiences even more thrilling.

Disneyland's Indiana Jones Adventure came in second place with 23% of the vote, followed by the Curse of DarKastle at Busch Gardens Williamsburg with 19%.  Indiana Jones was the first really big use of the ride system, and a ride that remains immensely popular 15 years after its debut.

Dinosaur at Animal Kingdom, a clone of Indiana Jones with a different theme, ranked 4th with 9% of the vote.  Transformers, which hasn't actually opened yet at Universal Studios Hollywood, came in an understandably last place.
