Test Track was scheduled to open in May 1997 but didn't officially open til March 1999. So, 4-5 months delay is not the worst we have ever had to wait for a new ride to debut.

That's what a lot of people have forgotten. Robb has posted this many times in this thread, yet people complain. It's a freaking roller coaster. It will open eventually. Until an OFFICIAL announcement from Universal, no one should believe any estimated softs or openings from undercover sources.

I will be there the beginning of December. Although I would really, really, really like to ride it considering this will be my only trip to Orlando for a long period of time, it is just a roller coaster. Life will go on if it isn't open the day I go.

I was at the park today and did for the first time see it test in person, however they were only running one train.

On a side note, I think the banner looks great. In person, seeing the size of it and how it blends in with the theme is beautiful.

Am I allowed to eat donkey during lent?
