World Cup Of Theme Parks!

Hi guys!
After seeing @valleyfair! run his Coaster Tournament I thought it would be a good idea to set one up for parks. I've created it on Challonge which is an online platform that is great for this sort of thing. To vote head to https://challonge.com/1kp2cvzs. Voting is free but you do need to make a Challonge account to vote (this is very easy to do). For the first 24 hours before I open the voting I have enabled predictions so that we can have a bit of a competition to see who can correctly guess how things will pan out. I'll post updates on this thread when the next round opens so be sure to keep an eye out!
I've thrown together the list of parks mainly based on attendance and here they are in seeded order-
Magic Kingdom
Disneyland Park (California)
Tokyo Disneyland
Tokyo DisneySea
Universal Studios Japan
Disney's Animal Kingdom
Epcot
Shanghai Disneyland Park

Good idea! I would say if you could add anymore parks to the list, possibly add Dollywood and Ferrari world, as they are pretty big parks!

In my opinion, Knoebels deserves a spot on this list. It's my favorite park, besting even the likes of Cedar Point.

Too many Legolands. Particuarly one like the German one in there, so bland.
Fantawild Adventure needs to specify which one it is, but then again the Adventure parks should never compete above Dreamlands or Oriental Heritages which all have the far superior hardware.
Also Puy duy Fuy and Futuroscope seem a bit out of place in this context.

All good points 👍 In hindsight maybe I should have limited the amount of parks from each chain were allowed in. I've updated the competition to specify which Fantawild I was referring to.

Good shout- I'll swap Walibi Belgium out for Dollywood 👍
Strange that you swap out Walibi Belgium, while there are meaningless parks, like Puy Du Fou and Futuroscope in there :)

Competitions like these should generate a bracket based of submissions, so people can send in their top 5-10 parks, and then from this the 64 participants should be chosen.
This would also reduce the amount of parks, of which people automatically think they are bad

That Fantawild Adventure just happens to be my least favourite of all of them, so that makes things a bit easier.
Dollywood vs USJ is so harsh for a first round. :(

That's the opposite effect you just described. An easy victory for a clearly better park.
The matchup I mentioned are both too good and one of them will go out too early, meaning the seeding hasn't had the desired effect.

They were seeded by attendance, hence the unfair match-up
