Review and rate theme park rides, restaurants and hotels on Theme Park Tourist, and you'll be in with a chance of winning two $50 Amazon vouchers that we're currently giving away each week.
UPDATE: The review competition is now closed, and we've announced the final winners below. Thanks everyone for your entries!
Last year, we launched our extensive theme park guides, which include details of more than 3,500 rides, 1,600 restaurants and dozens of on-site hotels at more than 90 parks and resorts. We think it's a pretty unique resource, unmatched by anything else on the web. But its usefulness will be dramatically enhanced by you, our readers, submitting your own ratings and reviews.
To help us achieve our goal of becoming "the TripAdvisor of theme parks", we're offering two prizes every week (both $50 Amazon vouchers) to readers that submit reviews for rides, restaurants and hotels. To qualify, all you need to do is navigate to our park guides, select a park and add a review of one (or more) of its rides, restaurants or hotels. Not only will you be in with a chance of a prize, but you'll also be helping to develop an incredible resource for other theme park visitors.
The two weekly prizes will be awarded to:
- A featured review - the best review submitted that week, as selected by Theme Park Tourist's editors. This will appear in our weekly e-mail newsletter (starting in the week of September 9), and we'll contact you to let you know you've won.
- A randomly-selected review - we'll select one review at random via a prize draw to win the second $50 Amazon voucher. The more reviews you submit in any given week, the more chances you have to win!
You'll need to register with the site before you can begin submitting reviews. This only takes a few seconds if you use your Facebook account details. Don't worry if you're not based in the US...if you win, we'll send you an Amazon voucher of equivalent value from your local version of the retailer.
To keep track of the best theme park rides in the world (as rated by you), we're also launching the TPT100 this week. This lists the 100 rides with the highest ratings on the site (rides must have a minimum of 15 votes to qualify). Disagree with the rankings? Get rating and reviewing!
Rules and notes
- Review length - all reviews must be at least 50 words in length to qualify for the competition. They must also be useful to our readers. The editors of the site reserve the right to delete any reviews that do no meet these criteria, in which case they will not qualify for the competition.
- Deadlines - Reviews received by midday (UK time) on Sunday will be eligible for that week's prize. Don't worry if you miss that deadline - your review will simply become eligible for the next week's draw.
Update, September 9:
WOW! We were not expecting the incredible response to this competition. More than 150 reviews were submitted last week - and every single one of them was outstandingly useful. Thank you so much to everyone who contributed a review.
This made choosing a "featured review" winner very, very difficult. We wish we could have awarded you all a prize, frankly. But in the end we had to go for Brandon Bush's astonishingly detailed and helpful review of Disney's Polynesian Resort. Congratulations, Brandon!
The winner of the draw for the other $50 Amazon voucher was Aaron Lee Murray, with his review of the Studio Backlot Tour at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Congratulations to Aaron, too!
