    I don't know about that, I'm going to miss the loud noises of tools creating "music".

        They've done an incredible job, I'd even go as far to say that (tech aside) this could have easily been in the pack in '82. It just has that great EPCOT feel to it.

          I would've preferred if they enclosed the outside. After looking at the vid, that would've cost some serious money. I guess they did pretty good for what they had. At least they didn't tack some horrible looking crap on the outside.

            If they enclosed it would have been that horrible looking crap. That would have been horribly intrusive with the sleek circular simplicity of the building, more so than the canopy.

              I think most people are referring to just the out-of-site back loop portion of the outdoor track when they refer to the bit they want to enclose. Just the part that goes backstage. The final loop that hugs the building is fine the way it is however.

                I'm surprised at how many people are saying they hate it on YouTube.

                    I have mixed opinions on the new attraction. It's definitely visual eye candy to the extreme, but at the same time, the story is much weaker and it feels like a lot was cut out of the budget. Test Track needed new onboard computers, which it didn't get. Heck, even the onboard video displays look extremely pixelated... it reminds me of a 240 Youtube video... lots of ghosting and whatnot. The interactive part of the experience... designing your own car... is fun. However, it's just a next gen queue. If you have FastPass or are a Single Rider, you're simply choosing from pre-designed vehicles.

                    The ride programming itself needs to be fixed still... those annoying "Test Track Breaks" are all still there.

                    Bottom line: I like it better than I did the old version, but it's not the best re-do ever.

                      If there is one thing I have learned is to never pay attention to the comments section on YouTube. People there are always comparing something to My Little Pony or something else that has no relation to the video above.

                        It seems to be the rule of thumb, usually the people watching it don't know anything about EPCOT past what they've seen (post 94 management) or argue something ridiculous like how Disney should build a flying car or something.

                          It's amazing to me how some people preferr the feeling of driving through a warehouse (TT 1.0) compared to driving through a computer, (TT 2.0). Oh well, people find Honey Boo Boo entertaining so what can I say.

                            Totally agree with you. The enclosed, indoor feeling of it kind of ruined it for me. I'll miss the details though.

                              I'm not a troll, but I honestly find the computer theming somewhat repetitive and it lacks originality after the first few scenes. The test track theme with the different segments of tests made more coherent sense to me, which made it more exciting...all of course, in my opinion.

                                i see where your coming from tyler, i think if they upgraded based around the original concept of the ride but just made in more futuristic and less early 90s all around it could have been a little better however ill have to see it in person first before i really know for sure.

                                    I don't really like the theme of what are clearly projections on the walls; I would have preferred something more physical, and at LEAST the preservation of the robotic arms, my favorite part of the ride. But I think they did a really great job of disguising the warehouse, and from the laser trees on the update is impeccable. Just wish there were some more dramatic effects in the skidding section and the sustainability section.

                                      We are all such critics. LOL... but honestly it is better. You can miss an old effect here or there. Some miss the robots, some miss the temperature champers, but overall, this exceeded my expectations.

                                      So glad I was wrong! Again, NICE to be wrong, nice to say I really think Disney did it right this time. In fact I will go on record to say Test Track will take back from Soaring the figurative Flagship Attraction for Epcot.

                                      They did a very good job at New Test Track. I am tempted to call it excellent. I have the opposite impression as the above poster. The new skid test is much better at fooling you. It is not a weather test instead of regular brakes. You can hardly see the slot any more, just bright yellow stripes identifying the lane your suppose to stay in. Unlike Disneyson, I found everything before the laser trees to be MUCH improved but everything after them, just a repainting with day glow colors put under black lights. So there Disneyson and I have different perspectives on this upgraded attraction.

                                      I enjoy the new tests versus the old, normal brakes followed by anti lock brakes. Anti lock brakes weren't new when test track open and definitely not in 2012 when it shut down. The visuals here, while a mix of Tron like sets with projection screens mixed in, are infinitely better then roads cones and construction barricades in a sterile utilitarian warehouse. I don't understand the harsh critics. After the lazer trees it is largely the same experience. As mentioned before it is just put under black lights and the props either traced in tron like grids that glows or day glow paints to out line the tree shapes that were previously there during the uphill climb and are still there now. Regardless, even that part looks much better and this all of the inside is a vast improvement over what was there. For those missing the futuristic fiber optic city that use to be in Space Ship Earth, there is a scene in new Test Track that will almost fill that void.

                                      Overall, I applaud the new test track. I believe it to be much more in the spirit of E.P.C.O.T. Center and I for one and super glad to have it. To me new Test Track is not a budget cut or a watering down of a classic, instead it is a genuine upgrade that will re-establish Test Track as the parks premier attraction.
