Hello! Good morning! No, my friends. I did not forget all the hard work you did this past Sunday. Yesterday was just a very busy day!
So, let me tell you what didn’t surprise me about your tour through some of Walt Disney World’s speediest thrill rides …
Space Mountain? It’s too wild? Settle it down? Hah! The masses have spoken. Over 80% of you say, “Are you kidding me? It’s perfect!”
Yeah, Space is staying just as it is. Not a surprise! Not in the least.
Hmm. Expedition Everest. That yeti has been busted for years.! I had someone ask me, “What’s wrong with Yeti?” Uh, he’s paralyzed, I quipped.
Should we “[s]hut the attraction down and fix Yeti, for Mickey’s sake!”? Almost 70% of you shout, “Yes!” Again, not a shock.
When it came to Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster, I gave you a choice. Paint it, or re-theme it! After all, Aerosmith is SO yesterday … right? Right.
No. Almost 65% of you scoffed at me and declared, “A fresh ‘paint job’ will do. Please leave the rest alone!” Well, you sure put me in my place, I’d say.
It was your indisputable opinion of Test Track’s 2012 reincarnation as “Test Track Presented by Chevrolet” that caught my astonishment!
Over 30% of you are so disappointed with the current version of this attraction that you’re proponents of returning it to its original state – the version first-opened in 1999!
Nearly 45% of you want Disney to rehab it again … just two years later! Wow!
Less than 25% of you want to “Keep the current version!”? Hey! If that’s the case, why is the line always so darn long?!
Truthfully, folks, I am a bit stunned by the result!
What is it, my friends, that we dislike so much about the “new” Test Track? Or, is it that we just plain miss the old version?
I can tell you what it is for me … it’s the track. It’s really hard to enjoy the attraction when, as you traverse the course, all you can “see” and feel is the old ride.
Sure, it would have cost more money, but you should have truly changed the attraction, Disney. All of the interactive theming is great, but, in the end, the ride simply got a glorified, shockingly blue, paint job!
Am I wrong, folks? What are your thoughts? What disappoints you about the current version? Please leave a comment, here at All in WDW, on Facebook, Reddit, or on Twitter. Let the fans know your thoughts!
Why does “Test Track Presented by Chevrolet” turn you off? Are you amidst the 25% that enjoy the attraction? Then, why?
Let your voice be heard! Have a great day, everyone!
