Concept art showing the vehicle coming back around the front of the
building after completing the outdoor high-speed section.
The pavilion as viewed from Logo Plaza
Part of the outdoor tracking, backstage. At this point, the vehicles
are traveling left-to-right, and are near the end of the ride.
A great shot of the backstage high-speed run. The vehicles exit the
building following the 'crash-test' section, and hit a sharp decline. Gaining speed,
the cars take a sharp right, then left into the large helix. After straightening
out, they reach the top speeds of the ride, then curve around the front of the pavilion
and enter just below the point where the vehicles left the building.
||UPDATE! Test Track will soft open to Epcot cast on
December 11, to WDW cast on the 12th, and be turned over from imagineering to WDA on the
18th or 19th. At that point, the decision to open to guests is strictly up to Epcot
management. They have stated that it will open in a limited (read: very long lines)
capacity over the holidays, with an official grand opening (at full capacity) in March.
Currently, they are running 23 vehicles on the track, with a 16s dispatch time.
It's about time!
