Potter Theme Park Ride Named Best New Attraction Park Insider announced the winners of their 9th annual Theme Park Insider Awards, and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter spurred wins in two of the categories.

For Best Theme Park, Universal’s Islands of Adventures Park won the top honors, beating out runners-up Busch Gardens Williamsburg and Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Disney World. Theme Park Insider said of the park:

Propelled by the runaway enthusiasm for The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, including the Theme Park Insider Award-winning Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, Universal’s Islands of Adventure reclaims the title as the nation’s top theme park by winning the 2010 Theme Park Insider Award.

As mentioned in the quote, Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey won the Best New Attraction category by a wide margin. According to the site, Theme Park Insider’s readers not only gave the ride the highest ratings for any attraction that has debuted in the past year, but they also gave it the high distinction of being the best theme park ride in America.
The runners-up in this category were the World of Color attraction at Disney California Adventure, and Intimidator at the Carowinds.
