Let possibly the most lop-sided poll begin! Good afternoon Intercotees and welcome back to the Tournament of Attractions! on the Theme Park Forum, thanks for joining us.

TO RECAP:

- Spaceship Earth rolled over Mission: Space in the first Epcot quarter-final
- Rockin' RollerCoaster drove circles around the Great Movie Ride in a DHS quarter-final
- The Haunted Mansion spooked Space Mountain in an MK quarter-final
- Expedition Everest dried up Kali River Rapids in an AK quarter-final

UP NEXT:

As you all know, this tournament was drawn completely randomly (this poll is proof!). Until we get to the semi-finals and the finals, we may continue to see lop-sided polls. However I don't think it'll get much more lop-sided than with this match, so lets get Soarin' VS Ellen's Energy Adventure over with as soon as possible!

WHAT TO DO:
Vote for whatever attraction you enjoy more!

The next poll (another DHS quarter-final) will be posted once this poll moves to page 2 of this forum.

Happy voting and have a Disney Day!

Now I love what they have done with Universe of Energy changing it into Ellen's Energy Adventure. It's a much more enjoyable ride (although I do miss the old one..."Oil shale, the rock that burns"), but I gotta admit, once I tried out Soarin', between the two I love Soarin' more and it gets my vote. It's some of Disney's finest work at it's best combining big screen with motion seats and the smells too. :mickey::thumbsup:

Soarin is an awesome ride, too bad the waits are the longest in disney

ellen's energy adventure is one of my least favorite rides in disney, way too long and boring

I had to vote for Ellen. DD LOVES this ride, I don't know why, but it is one of her favourites.

I voted for Soarin but Ellen's is the best place to take a power nap! Its cool and dark.

I was thinking exactly the same thing! Universe of Energy is a great place to rest your tired feet and cool off! :D

My kids actually love Universe of Energy but comparing it to SOARIN' is totally unfair. Soarin' in a landslide.

I thought maybe this was a joke. There is no contest here. Soarin is one of the BEST rides in all of Disney. Ellen? Not so much. I think I slept through this entire thing. I only remember the dinosaurs.

I'm surprised it's as close as it is. - I would think it would think it would be closer to 95-5, maybe by the end it will be.

To sum up this poll, Soarin' was given a first round bye.

I had to vote for Ellen. We ride it every time we're down. Although I love Soarin, we don't ride it every time we visit.

I voted Soarin. It is exciting. Thrilling to be up in the air and Soarin over California. The music composed for the ride is wonderful. I think they could have made it a little bit longer. Other than that, it gets two :thumbsup::thumbsup:.

I really like Ellen's Energy Adventure (and I was surprised, because I really don't like Ellen), but I had to go with Soarin'. Right now, for me, nothing else in Future World compares.

this isn't a fair comparison. Putting a 45 minute show/attraction against a 2 minute attraction doesn't seem like a good face off. Ellen gets hurt from the git go because you have to be willing to devote the time to ride it

All part of the total randomness of the Tournament of Attractions!!:mickey:
