Ah bummer, I always know there is a risk going in January/February for refurbs but looks like we will have to miss this one this go around. Thanks for the heads up though!

I wonder if this will push back the SSE refurb. To have two headliners down at the same time in a park that doesn’t have a ton going on would be tough

Good. Needs major help.

honestly, test track is one of the worst attractions in all of Walt Disney World. It is simply plywood cut outs painted black with neon paint outlining the set pieces. Terrible projections on flat walls, overall very poor quality dark ride. I don’t understand why it gets any praise, besides the fact that it goes fast.

Figures it's happening while I'm there:confused:...You also have to wonder how much longer the sponsership will be with GM and Disney before they IP it down the road...

Still would be surprised if it goes to a Cars themed and migrate the Lightning Mcqueen AA from DHS to Epcot and retheme it to the Rust Eze Racing Academy..


SIDE QUESTION is that show still getting the guests they were expecting or has it died down since GE opened?

Yeah......hate to say it, but Test Track has been lumped into my “don’t really care if I ride ever again” pile. It’s not dynamic or inventive anymore. There is very little substance to make this a classic attraction that will continue on through the years. Needs to go at some point in the future.

Haven't been able to ride on our last two visits, it was down. Seems to happen quite often.
Test Track needs to be fixed and updated.

In don’t know....I always think it’s good news when an attraction closes for a few weeks to refurb. Means something will be new..whether it’s just cleaning, or new screens etc.

Not too good if it’s your weeks to go...

Really? One of the worst? I think you need a few more rides on Stitch.... In a park that lacks attractions, it’s one of the better ones IMO, but I agree it could use a few touch ups to the paint and some dusting.

Honestly, I don’t mind the projections that much, I like the various tests, and yes, it’s fun to go fast. I also enjoy making terrible cars and seeing how they measure up. I’m all about the Power at the expense of everything else, haha.

(Now if you want to get into a discussion about rides I don’t understand the popularity of... I could talk to you all day about Soarin’. To each their own! :);))

I really like the Tron aesthetic over the original, but now that they're building an actual Tron ride over at Magic Kingdom, it's gonna look awkward in comparison.
