    started a topic [Idea] test track in tomorrowland

    test track in tomorrowland

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

    Like others have said. Not with RSR coming to DCA. Also, there isn't enough room in TL.

    I would rather see and updated Autopia, like the Hong Kong version.

    Well, the Matterhorn is far more historic - it's the first tubular steel coaster - and it fits a lot better in its land, though it's not perfect. There is no valid reason for the current Autopia to be in the current Tomorrowland other than the fact that it's already there and getting decent ridership. If it were added today, the uproar from the fan community would be amazing. Cars and highways aren't things of the future anymore. They're an unfortunate part of our present and past, and we can only hope that the future will do away with them.

    Status as a classic isn't enough to keep an attraction in the park, I'm afraid. I'm hugely nostalgic and tend to be hesitant about removing things in the park, but in cases like this...I mean, Autopia could very well be the biggest thematic violation in all of Disneyland.

    Test Track just doesn't fit Tomorrowland. It's not very futuristic, nor is the attraction really needed when Radiator Springs Racers uses the same system.

    And besides, we don't need any more clones. Original attractions to keep guests coming is what we need.

    They wouldn't move it there because of the new Cars land that is going to be built.

    I kind of like the idea to make this ride but I would prefer to see an all new attraction that no other park has. I doubt that will happen though.

    No, no. I'm talking about something far less drastic. I just mean that currently, Innoventions stops a little ways west of the railroad tracks, which are still outdoors at that point. If a multilevel show building were built where Innoventions is, the train tunnel could be extended further north, allowing the new show building's top level to extend over the top of it and a bit of the service road that crosses the tracks. It wouldn't be a huge amount of extra space, but it'd help. As for the chiller plant, unless there's one I'm not aware of, that's further south and wouldn't be affected. Neither would the monorail beam, which is further east, and all the backstage areas over there aren't really any major backstage structures in the area I'm talking about.

    When you look down from the station, you see this. Imagine that with a closer tunnel with some sort of themed show building exterior above.
    OK, I see what you're talking about. The reason I mentioned the chiller and Monorail tracks is because I thought you wanted to bridge over the DLRR and have a show building backstage. But I see now you mean just building on top of a new RR tunnel.

    Even if they didn't go all out and put some part of an attraction on top of that tunnel, they could put some tall wienie, maybe even move the Moonliner there.

    If it is E or D is besides the point. Let's just concentrate on putting in some good quality attractions.
    Fair enough. =)

    Of course, they could always get rid of the Grand Canyon. I'm not sure how relevant and/or sacred that attraction is any more.
    I'm sad to say that I wouldn't mind it leaving. Wouldn't mind it staying, either. But it certainly could be used for something else.

    If they want to make a larger attraction, they should expand into that huge waste of space otherwise known as the Autopia queue.
    You never spoke a truer word, laddie.

Innoventions is about 41,000 square feet; the Haunted Mansion, including the facade and underground queue, is about 44,000...and the track never passes over itself. Also, the area used by Innoventions could be expanded by making the new show building pass over the railroad tracks.

    According to some of the WDI factoid slides I've seen, Little Mermaid is meant to be an elaborate D-Ticket. Whether or not that has been upgraded since, I haven't heard.

    It'd probably replace Innoventions, methinks. That's a sizable bit of real estate, and it'd be nice if a higher-capacity, more popular attraction were there instead. The backstage areas adjacent to Tomorrowland are not big...not much room to spare.
