We recently visited Test Track where a major refurbishment is underway that will see everything from the queue and post-show to the actual ride experience itself change into a virtual design world theme. Placing you as a designer of your very own SimCar guests will travel with their vehicle into a digital design world and experience first hand the abilities of the vehicles they have created. While we must rely on the concept art previews to gauge what the interior of Test Track might look like we can already see that work is being done to gut the old attraction. The most visible sign of this is that Test Track’s old ride signage has been completely removed in order to make way for the all-new logo that shall enter in its place at some point in the future. To take a peak at the construction work going on at Epcot’s Test Track make sure to click past the break.
There is certainly no time to waste…
Not only has the Test Track ride signage been removed but so have the scrims that normally cover the white steel framing nearby.
If you look on the top right of this image you can see an old buggy that I believe has been removed from the queue.
I should have asked if these steel frames were coming down. My guess is probably not but what a glorious homage to EPCOT if the beauty of the original building’s design was once again featured.
Lots of new concept art released at the What’s New What’s Next? media event. Be sure to check out our report from that event.
Can’t wait to hear the roar of the vehicles zooming by again!
