    The New 7 Wonders have been announced. They are:

    Chichen Itza
    Christ the Redeemer
    Great Wall
    Machu Picchu
    Petra
    Colloseum
    Taj Mahal

    They should have included the Acropolis (my favourite), but never mind. Will these get put into any kind of order later on? Also, what were other people's choices?

    I think it's a good list. They had to re-do them because most of the original 7 don't actually exist anymore. The Great Pyramids of Giza apparently retain their status in a special classification as well.

    ^Macchu Picchu was my favourite too. But it's a bit weird - 3 of the 7 are in S. America.

    I'm sad that the Acropolis didn't make it but the list's pretty good - thank goodness the Eiffel Tower didn't get enough votes. :eek:

    Colloseum is a definite "Yes" - it's amazing. Has anyone ever been to see it?

    Twice, I like it but personally think it's one of the less impressive on the list - maybe that's just familiarity.

    Also not so sure about the Christ Redeemer being one of the Top 7...

    Favourites were the Taj Mahal and the other 2 S. American ones

    ^That is good, but I'd like to have seen maybe the Terracotta Warriors or the Gorge of a Thousand Buddhas in there.

    With the colesseum I think it'd be better that have the forum as a whole, part of the impressiveness is the extent of buildings that remain all centred in one area.

    ^^ I love Christ the Redeemer and Machu Picchu - also voted for Petra, and DID NOT vote for the Taj Mahal - I personally think it's overrated....

    The internet should be the only wonder and then we vote for 7 websites as the new 7 wonders
