Video of new Test Track

I'm not sure if someone has already posted this but below is a link to the new Test Track. Personally, I don't like the new theming, I think it looks really dated

I haven't decided what I think about it yet.

From the videos I've seen, I think it would be better if they had enclosed the outside bit. I need to ride it before I decide...another excuse to go back I suppose

Meh. I find it a bit underwhelming and can't really see the benefit in having changed it.

It's sort of like its lost elements as opposed to gain them.

I must admit I thought it would be a bit more exciting - but like others have said I'll need to ride it first to make my mind up!

I think it looks awesome! The outside track is still the same and the inside part of the ride really needed some updating. I can't wait to ride it!

Looks good and I've always loved the outside bit. I'd have thought there would be bigger changes after the lengthy closure though. But look modern and can't wait to try.

Is it just me that sees the inside and thinks of Tron?

I've never ridden the old version, but I have seen both versions on Youtube, and must admit I prefer the look of the new one. Looks more 'futuristic' which after all is what Future World is all about.

When we went in September it was still closed but at least now it's open it gives us another excuse to go back!
I think it looks cool and a bit like 'Tron'!
