I would rather Disney reimagine a ride then get rid of it totally. Lets be happy to still have TT...I don't really mind the new look they showed us...it seems fine.

The only thing I'm upset about is that I'll be in EPCOT this summer during the construction of it and won't be able to ride it...but I'll manage LOL

So much potential to do it right. How about a Tron theme? Could be cool. I love TT but it needed an upgrade. Hope the new one is cool.

100% this. I'm all for flashy and futuristic whatnot, but don't take away from the ride: enhance it!

You have no idea how happy I am to see other people who think that Epcot is losing focus of the principles it was founded on!

I also agree 100%, as long as this ride has a grounded and forward facing take on the future in terms of automotive technology, I'll be happy.

I'm worried though that it'll be like Mission Space, as in, it'll take the aesthetics and theme of the future and ignore all the science.

Guess we'll have to wait and see!

But I've done my TT mourning and am ready to see the new thing. I'm prepared to like it on its own merits. So far, all I've seen are sketches of artwork I don't much care for, but I will like it if I can.

I do hope they'll change the name, though. It will be very difficult to not make comparisons if it is supposed to be the same ride.
Actually, I'm still pulling for Test Track with Dreamfinder and Figment...

Since they just built a new Test Track-like ride at CA Adventure, hopefully they have some great new technology and ideas that they want to add to Test Track to make the actual ride part even better!

The technology is the same, really....just different cars and scenery. But like you, I am hoping for something fresh, besides the aesthetics.
