Orlando's Most Anticipated New Attractions for 2016 - Survey Results

Survey Results - 2016 Anticipated Orlando Attractions
A couple of weeks ago, OrlandoTastic presented a survey to over 500 people asking them what new attractions they were most excited about in 2016.  Although there was strong support for all the candidates, we do have some emerging winners.  To be fair, we shuffled the results before each participant received the survey.  Also, it should be noted that we limited the survey to Orlando theme park attractions, and we limited it, even more, to only include the big 3:

SeaWorld Orlando's "Mako" hypercoaster - A roller coaster that might just top them all at 200 feet in the air, speeds of over 70 MPH, and plenty of sharks.

Disney World's "Frozen Ever After" at Epcot's Noway Pavilion in the World showcase - Frozen is one of the biggest Disney films of all time, and I'm sure fans are going to come from all over the World to meet Elsa and company.

Universal Orlando's "Skull Island: Reign of Kong" - The next King Kong movie is already going to be one of the biggest Hollywood blockbusters for 2017, and having this incredible Land of Kong attraction open before its release will only add to the anticipation.

The first question was:
"What new attractions are you most excited to see and experience in 2016?"

And the results:
What new attractions are you most excited to see and experience in 2016
51.6% - Frozen Ever After
40.3% - Skull Island : Reign of Kong
8.1% - Mako

We then asked our surveyors to elaborate on why they made their selections.  Here are some of the responses:

  • Star Wars Land at Disney's Hollywood Studios
  • Toy Story Land at Disney's Hollywood Studios
  • Volcano Bay, replacing Wet 'n Wild water park
And the results:
which 2017 attraction are you most excited to check out?
 53% - Star Wars Land
39% - Toy Story Land
7.9% - Volcano Bay

Thanks again for everyone that participated.  We'll be running another survey next week.
