Our theme park enthusiast brethren over at the LATimes.com, Brady MacDonald likes to put together his most anticipated rides for the upcoming year pretty early on.
His take on the best new rides coming in 2014 he put together back in July 2013, but that's not too unusual considering the lead time theme parks like to take from announcement to opening.
Now that the new year has finally arrived, though, it seems fitting to roll his top 14 take back out. It's a great look at what's coming to theme parks around the entire country this year.
Not that Orlando isn't well represented.
The Harry Potter expansion at Universal Orlando is there. So is the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train at the Magic Kingdom as is Falcon's Fury at Busch Gardens. Also on the list are new shows at SeaWorld Orlando.
What's not there is the the new Magic Kingdom parade expected this spring with new floats for Peter Pan, The Little Mermaid, Tangled and Brave among others.
For what is there, you'll have to click through the gallery (http://thesent.nl/1bZI7nr) to see where they fall on Brady's list. Agree with Brady's take?
