  • Haunted Mansion Wins Tournament of Rides!

  • The Tournament of Rides presented by World of Walt has a champion! From a field of 40 heavyweights, including the newest rides in the park, Magic Kingdom's Haunted Mansion battled through the fray to win the title of the top ride at all of Walt Disney World.
    Nostalgia reigned supreme in the finals, as the Haunted Mansion thumped Disney's newest masterpiece, Rise of the Resistance. Picking up nearly 59% of the votes, the Mansion jumped to an early lead on day one of voting and never looked back, simply giving Kylo Ren an invitation to become its 1000th happy haunt.
    The win completed a magical run through the bracket for Haunted Mansion, which came in seeded 8th in its own park by the committee (guess we missed the boat on that one...). With wins over Buzz Lightyear, the Seven Dwarfs' Mine Train, Space Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean, Avatar Flight of Passage, and Rise of the Resistance, the Mansion truly took on contenders of all styles and vintages en route to the championship.
    #8 (MK) Haunted Mansion (59%) def. #1 (HS) Rise of the Resistance (41%)
