 Review of Test Track @ EPCOT
0 Rating Posted by: Pete C on 6/8/2006 2:28:00 PM
Test Track is a very fun ride that offers some really interesting sequences. I like the different parts of the ride, especially the high-speed ending of course. I think they should have skipped the windshield on the front of the cars. On the 65 mph run at the end, you lose one of the best aspects of going that fast on a thrill ride...the wind in your face.

On the message boards i posted a video I found about test track. The speed was suppose to be 95 but it was lowered.

Lets hope then, that they pull a Tower of Terror at some point and introduce Test Track 2 and dial it up to 70 - 80 mph. It seems like Epcots new rides can all be upgraded or changed in the future. Mission: SPACE and Soarin could also debut new ride films for a new mission or new Soarin Over The World.

There was a rumor that for EPCOTs 25th anniversiary (2007) they would introduce "Soarin Over America". I dont know how true this is, if it is true they are extremely tight lipped about it. But this is one of those things thats easy to keep secret, since it doesnt really require any construction. As for test track, I ALWAYS do the Single Rider line on that. The reason why the regular line is so slow (IMO) is because the seating is 3:3 and they will take groups of 4 and put 2 in front and 2 in back, making 1/3 of that car go to single riders. When me and my little sister went on, I didnt hesitate to go into the single riders line, cause I knew we would be within 1 car of each other.

Im not sure if the current track could support 95 mph. Perhaps it was originally planned to go 95, but that was before construction started. I think Test Track would benefit more from an additional loop around the building, which would be lower to the ground and extended slightly further out, thus enabling a higher speed to be possible in this portion since it would be lower to the ground and could have stronger supports made for it.

Raptor might be right. The track shakes every time a car goes by at 65. Just think how much it would shake at 95. They would need to add supports, fix the entire track, or just build another section of the track for higher speeds.
