Wow.. very 'concept-y'
More details on the new Test Track presented by Chevrolet
awesome! Thanks Steve!
Kind of looks like the same ride to me.
Queue and post show look amazing. I hope the reality matches the concept.
Looks like we're seeing the same thing.
There are no changes to the ride system. The exact same track layout and cars will remain.
Was looking really good until I got to the picture of the vehicle in the ride, which with the road signs and guard rails, looks a lot like what we had before. Not too thrilled about that...
Love the other concept work though, and that they tried to do something futuristic and optimistic, but I hope some of that ends up in the ride itself. A slick pre- and post-show can't/shouldn't be the main draw for an attraction.
Yeah, I was going to say the same thing. Was hoping for a little less visibility of the whole building
during that portion.
Nevertheless, I have always enjoyed this ride despite its warts, and I look forward to what
I perceive as an upgrade. Let's hope it doesn't disappoint.
I'm sure this has already been asked, but does anyone know how the design process will work? Say for instance I design the features of the car one way, but the couple sitting behind me in the car designed it differently, but now we're all in the same car. How would that work?
It will always be the same physical ride experience, no changes there. Exactly how the design will influence things is not clear, but it appears it will be on screens, and later in the post show area.
All that exposed show lighting sure looks lovely too.
I like the futuristic look. It looks like there may be something to look at inside the loop in the outdoor section of track beside parked cars.
I'm not liking the increase in switchbacks with nothing to do and what will the experience be like for single riders?
So, I am going to be laughed off the stage here, but the second to last concept art picture shows a car going down a hill. I don't remember where that is and was wondering if it is possible that the cars are going in the opposite direction then TT presented by GM? Can anyone confirm if the cars have been doing that during test?
Also, in one of the concept models in the first few pictures, it looks like the original vestibule is part of the model. Can anyone tell me how that plays into the new ride, or is it just an older concept model?
Its roofless - you're seeing the VIP level there, which still has its wedge shape.
It's during the rough road test. Same as before. Seatbelt check, hill climb, right turn then ramp down to second floor level.
I'm not laughing at ya
The downhill section was right at the start, the rough road test. Skip to about 7mins 30 secs
From what I've heard, changing your car will only change the outcome of your "score" at the end of the ride. So you will be graded for how well your car performed on the tests. It doesn't change the ride at all other than the possibility of your car being shown on screens throughout the ride. So the best performing test car would be featured at the end of the ride.
Wow...I'm actually blown away at the pre/post show! That looks amazing!
Hopefully that same "theme" carries throughout the attraction!
I'm assuming that the picture with the track and the "Shanghai" above it is the digital tables. From this concept it looks like nothing more than a slotcar track...but is this not a physical track but more of a hologram?
