    Test Track at DLR

    I think Disney should consider building a Test Track attraction at DLR. California is the center of car culture and there are a lot of auto enthusiasts in So. California.

    How about it Bob Iger? Test Track at DCA!

    Anybody here agree ?

    Except most of the cars racing on this test track will be those souped up rice burners with the oversized "bee" sounding mufflers that I see on the LA freeways everyday and hear about crashing on the news everyday!

    Re: Test Track at DLR

    I want new rides not recycled rides to go to Disneyland. When they put the same rides in DL and WDW it defeats the purpose of experiencing both parks. Although I did hear the Test Track is awesome at WDW. When I was there I didn't have time to go on that one.

    Meh. It's an ok ride. One problem will be that we SoCal'ers do a ride like that just to get to DL.

    Re: Test Track at DLR

    sorry, it's an "ok" ride.... but I agree w/ adormouse here: if WDC is going to spend the
    major $$ for a e-ticket class ride (money-wise Test Track is/was a e-ticket), it shouldn't be a transplant, but something unique (or at least modified).

    Anyway, where would it go? I can't think of any place w/ that kind of space in DL... maybe
    tear down innoventions? but it's not futuristic (as-is) to be really in TL.

    Re: Test Track at DLR

    I love test track but the building that it is in is huge. I agree though that they should stop with the recycled attractions. Give us an original E-ticket in DCA.
    Check out my new Disney Blog here. What it lacks in quality it makes up with... Well, nothing I guess.

    LOL - that's SO true! Reminds me of when I was there w/ some friends. One of my friends is not a huge fan of thrill rides, and she was screaming the entire way through the ride. Another friend looked at her and said "I don't know why you're screaming - you drove faster than this in the parking lot!"
    She did it!

    Re: Test Track at DLR

    While some ride using test track technology would be awesome, unfortunately the only place to put said attraction would be the Timon parking lot, and Disney has decided they'd rather have another hotel there intead of E-tickets for DCA.

    Re: Test Track at DLR

    Last summer, when I visited WDW for the first time, I waited about 3 hours for Test Track. It broke down right as we were about to load.

    We waited again for 3 hours the next day.

    Boy, did I want those 6 hours of wait time back. I thought the ride was immensely over-hyped and nowhere near as good as many say it is.

    But we already have Mulholland Madness at DCA - what more could you ask for as a tribute to car culture?!

    I agree with you! I thought it was nice and a good ride, but way over rated. I think it would be a nice addition to the park...but wait ToT was a nice addition but never caught on out here. I dunno about Test Track, It would be nice to see, but where would it go? and I don't want it in Tomorrowland! i say, just let Epcot keep it.

    I agree that we need more unique rides. If they did build it though I would like for it to be longer, especially the fast part.
