    Test Track updates at EPCOT



    If anyone's interested they updated Test Track for the past couple of months and just opened it last week. I think I prefer the old one a lot more after seeing the video. It was never one of my favorite rides to begin with though.

    Re: Test Track updates at EPCOT

    I won't want to watch the video because I want to ride it first. I like the concept behind the update but I really loved the original. I'm hoping to get down there soon and try it out!

    I rode this at Disneyland and I agree, the new Star Tours is excellent! If you rode on the old version, you were lucky to leave and not have a headache.

    Parents went there in September and rode this. They said it was amazing!

    Funny story, I dropped my pass in the old Star Tours que and it fell where all the robots were. Maintenance guy didn't know where I was standing so I had to go help him find. Of course it was where the line wraps around so I had a bunch of people staring at me.

    First thing that I thought of when you said you lost your ticket. At least you didn't lose it on the ride and try going after it.

    Re: Test Track updates at EPCOT

    I'm a huge Disney geek (I once spent 16 days there on vacation) and I actually like to look of Test Track 2.0. Fits in much better with the "Future World" theme and I know my kids are going to love to interactive que and post-show.
    By the way, if anyone wants tips or to know some cools things to look for, let me know, I know more than I should about the resort (for example, in the train station in Frontierland, there is a lost and found on the shelves behind the desk. Towards the top of the shelves there is a wooden leg with a name tag that says "Smith", rep points to the first person to get that reference).

    It's from Mary Poppins. I have a friend with a wooden leg named Smith. Not rep worthy because I looked it up!

    Re: Test Track updates at EPCOT

    looks like track is the same just new neon lights all around. i still thought it was a fun ride but mission space or w/e had been my favorite there since it opened. funny story, i went on the ride with my dad and cousin. after they locked us in our little container for that ride. i looked to my cousin to my left and said "pull my finger, whoops too late!" and proceeded to rip a huge fart. little did i know 2 people over was some girl we didnt know . it smelled like **** in there for almost the whole ride

    Looks kind of lame. I really like the original version.
