  • [Idea] test track in tomorrowland

    i think tomorrowland should add test track. It's a very futuristic ride and will fit with the theme.

          I've never been on it. How is it futuristic? Isn't it just like any real test track from today? Also, since we're getting a Test Track-like ride in DCA, Radiator Springs Racers, which is going to be really themed well, it would be overkill to have a Test Track in Tomorrowland.

              I am sure someone can and will answer this better than I, but I'll give it a shot. It is futuristic in a way. Its based on crash test dummies, and the cars they are testing. So like in 2012 when a new car comes out (if we aren't flying at this point) they'll put it threw tests. Blocks, sharp turns, extreme heat, extreme cold, speed, stuff like that.

              I don't think it would be over kill. I don't feel having Mania and Astro Blast is over kill and those are one per park. I like the idea though. Beyond that, I haven't given it loads of thought.

                How about something that has to do with the future in Tomorrowland? Last I checked there are places to test new cars which wouldn't make it too futuristic. Plus DCA is getting Carsland, do we need a copy ride from WDW that could very well be similar to Radiator Springs?

                How about we let the imagineers imagine? If you like cookie cutters maybe we can have the Blue Ribbon Bakery handle all the retread rides.

                  Test Track really isn't futuristic.

                    Okay, this is basically the run down on the ride, and you can decide on how futurey it is. ^^

                    Its focused mainly on how we should test cars in the future. You go through a majority of tests such as how the ground texture is handeld, which feels quite like going down the steps in indy. You go through a hot room, cold room, and a corrosive room, and then go through rooms with handling, accelerating and brakes. Then the speed part is through squiggly roads, and the finale is when you go to the final test, a crash test. Right before you hit, the wall opens, and you are going like 60 mph around a steep bank outside. Up until this point it is in a dark ride format. You make a bend around the mirrored building, read your speed, and slow down, and see you pic and unload.

                    It is quite in the spirit of tommorowland, but I'm not sure where they would put it. Having 2 car rides right next to each other would be a bit much, now wouldn't it.
                    We are currently imagineeing a new attraction for you!

                    Please enjoy all the other attractions in fabulicious Vasooki-land! :yea:

                      I haven't experienced it in person, but I don't see how it'd fit in Tomorrowland. Seems to me like it's just modern technology, or very near-future stuff. Tomorrowland seeks to be about something more distant and fantastic and different from the present, methinks.

                      The problem is that it still involves cars, just like Autopia. Seems to me like the vision of Tomorrowland shouldn't incorporate anything that could really be called a car. It needs to be a whole new kind of transportation, not something that could/should happen next year.

                            Mhmmm. (I haven't been in there yet, so I can't totally judge it...but from what I hear, it's still kind of a showcase of stuff that's just on the verge of becoming reality, or that just hasn't become a reality for most consumers yet. That's not the direction I would like Tomorrowland to go in.)

                              It's focused on how we test cars in the present. It looks fun (just watched some youtube videos of it) and you go pretty dang fast, but they've been testing cars like that for decades. As Datameister says, Tomorrowland needs something fantastic and futuristic.

                              Another case in point: Autopia. Fun for the kids, but simply nothing to do with the future.

                                    If that ever happened, they better not cut corners. Like they did with Rocket Rods. It was retrofitted on a flat track with no banked turns and broke down everyday. Two years after its opening, its shut down for good. As much as I loved Rocket Rods, I don't know if we might see anything like that in the near future unless they really think it throughly.
                                    sigpicRocket Rods 1998-2001 May you rest in peace.

                                      Back in the day when Disneyland was the only park, I could see something like Test Track existing in Tomorrowland. Fast forward to the present, and having ridden it a few times, I'd say no.

                                      Being a crash test dummy isn't a "hope" for the future nor was it that fun. Weeeee 60 mph!

                                      Plus with the Radiator Springs Racers at DCA and land at a premium in Disneyland, I'd say let's have something different there.

                                        We are getting Radiator Springs Racers. From what I've been told it will be far better than Test Track. But that is just an opinion from a kind friend within WDI, I don't believe she is working on the project but is looking at it closely.

                                        Nonetheless, with RSR just a few years away there is no need for Test Track, which I find to only have an alright but rather simple storyline. I would rather have something more compelling along the lines of Journey to the Center of the Earth. Test Track was a wonderful way to introduce the ride concept, but we can do better story wise.
