    Re: Test Track to Reopen December 6 at Epcot Center

    The entrance looks more open and inviting than the old one, and makes me think of a 21st century EPCOT CENTER very sleek and modern and still has a focus on teaching people of various technologies in an entertaining way I think the new focus on car designing it very much in the tune of EPCOT's purpose because the car has really been advancing in recent years. I hope they add "It's Fun To Be Free" to the music loop.

    See ya walkin' right down the middle of o'l Main Street USA

    I just heard some of the new courtyard music for the attraction the other night. Some very nice orchestration that really fits with the rest of futureworld. Cars are not incorporated into the music like it used to be.

    Found some pics of TT from jalopnik.com This Is The Reimagined Chevy Test Track Ride At Disney World One picture does clearly say shanghai though... Not sure if this is significant to the new China park or not.

    They need to have "It's Fun to be Free" on a loop outside the attraction.

    It looks so... disappointing. I have had concern that the length of this redo was not long enough. I am almost willing to call this another FL Space Mountain they refrub.... the result being Better then before? Sure. Reaching the potential it should have... Sadly no. Take a look at this artist rendering of the "new" test track.



    Ok so they added some blue to the "old" test track but I looks like the warehouse theme is alive and well. Funny, I could swear that was an Imaginneer on youtube saying that the warehouse feel was one of the issues they wanted to address. Maybe I misunderstood, or maybe the TDO budget ax struck again. We will know for sure soon enough. Sorry to be such a Douglas Downer on this one. I keep waiting for Disney (World) to exceed my expectations like they use to, and I am still waiting.

    Sigh.

    personally I feel people are latching onto that one image way too much. I'm not ready to damn the entire ride experience based on an image that obviously is a mashup at best.

    I have not been latched onto it all, Today (11/12/2012) is the first time I have ever seen it. I have seen other images, which honestly looked much more promising. This one shows the warehouse fill will still be there, and sadly flynn, you know that artist rendering are typically are greater and MORE then the reality. If that if more......

    I honestly think that image is a photoshopped picture of old test track. I don't think that is actual concept art (concept art usually tries to make it look better than it really is). Will this be a more realistic look at what TT 2.0 will look like? Idk, but no need to call foul based on concept "art" (I thought Mater's Junkyard Jamboree in DCA would be awful based on the concept art, but now I love it). I think Flynnibus was referring to fans on other sites who have called blasphemy based on that one image and won't move on and look at how promising the other concept art looks.

    My question is this: will the redesigned TT still have the seemingly scheduled breakdowns? All of which happen when I exit the pre show room...

    Anyone else notice the giant, wide movie screens in the background of that concept photo-merge?
