Just because you don’t think it is good, it doesn’t mean the rest of the visiting majority agrees with your opinion. But I guess that’s the beauty of numbers... Everyone is entitled to their own opini

EPCOT is about one thing: making money for Disney. Does Guardians make money? *Glances at box office returns* Why, yes. Yes it does. Case closed.

I think “terrible” is a matter of perspective. Also understand that the person you’re debating this with has a long-proven admiration of Epcot in its classic form... Just look up Epcot’s 25th annivers

Comment From Pixie Vac Steve: Melissa, I am very excited about an update to Test Trak. The concepts seem a little Tron like. Was Tron an influence? - Pixie Vac Steve

 

Melissa Jeselnick: I think the new attraction and the artwork represent the digital age, and when people think about what the inside of a computer looks like, that's what you think of.

 

Yeah, that's pretty much the plot of Tron.

 

The "design your own car" stuff sounds a bit like the paint-and-tire-shop scenes of Radiator Springs Racers--that is, I guess they'll be using similar tecnhology.

Kind of like the original World of Motion when you got to see yourself riding in a futuristic vehicle at the end.

 

Test Track was never my favorite, and I think there's other attractions in the park that needed help before it.

LOL, I swear that's a direct quote from one of the movies.

I tried to picture clusters of information as they moved through the computer. What did they look like? Ships? Motorcycles? Were the circuits like freeways? I kept dreaming of a world I thought I'd never see. And then one day, I got in.

It's grown on me over the years, but I'm still waiting on Russia for World Showcase. Tequila, wine, and beer are all represented fairly well, but it's time for a world class Vodka bar.

^Especially vodka in an ice bar.

 

It would be pretty cool (pun intended) if Disney put one of these in Epcot.

Schnapps. We need a schnapps bar in Germany.

 

Wine bar in Italy. Champagne in France. Whiskey in Great Britain..errr Ireland.

^It's pretty much what Jeff Bridges says before they roll the opening credits of Tron Legacy.

 

This plus the black on neon blue you see in the marquee and show scenes concept art just scream TRON to me.. If the Shanghai Tron Cycle rumors ring true, I see this refurb as the BETA ( ) Tron ride.

I love how one person mentions liquor and suddenly the Test Track redesign is a distant memory, hahaha!

 

That's a good measure of how excited we all are about this "redesign". If only they changed the cars to "experimental light cycles" I'd be getting very excited but as it stands, after seeing all the artwork, I think I'm actually going to prefer the old Test Track. This seems like a more in-your-face advert for GM/Chevy and I wouldn't be surprised if that fancy Aveo you get to design in the line is available for order once you disembark with an affordable finance plan
