Test Track to get rennovation

3 Oct

Hey everyone

News has just come in that one of Epcot’s most popular rides ‘Test Track’ will be closed for refurbishment from April – September 2012. The renovation is reported to be costing around $60 million and by the sounds of it they are completely starting from scratch, leaving only the ride path and the vehicle chassis in place!

The partnership with General Motors means the new Test Track vehicles will be designed by their in house design team rather than Disney Imagineers, including adding new interiors and new electronics with new screens. The ride scenes will concentrate on vehicle design, production, fabrication and testing.

Exciting times 🙂
