Golden Ticket Awards

Don't know if anyone noticed but the Golden Ticket awards were announced over the weekend. The awards are run by Amusement Today magazine and are basically the theme park industry equivalent of the Oscars.

For the second year in a row, Disney was shut out of all but one category: once again winning "Best Outdoor Nighttime Production" for Illuminations.

I'm starting to prefer the Theme Park Insider awards over the Golden Tickets anyway but I thought everyone should be in the loop.

Universal Orlando took 5 awards: Best New Attraction for Harry Potter & The Forbidden Journey, Best Water Ride for Dudley Do-Right's Ripsaw Falls, Best Dark Ride for Amazing Adventures of Spider Man, Best Indoor Roller Coaster for Revenge of the Mummy, and Best Halloween Event for Halloween Horror Nights. SeaWorld took the Orlando area's best award home, winning for Best Marine Life Park.
