    Why do people keep refering to other rides and old refurbs ? Test Track is only getting the entry and que rethemed. The ride itself is not being touched from what I remember reading. So why would there be delays due to ride problems ? That being said we'll be there the week of Dec 2nd so were hoping it's done right on time.

    Not exactly right. The track and cars are staying the same but everything wrapped around that track is being changed.

    But yes I really don't think you can infer that there will be extra problems because they had trouble getting the bugs worked out on the ride system when it first opened.

    The photos and videos I've seen on this site shows major differences in the ride. I hope it opens soon as well but right now it is sure a mess.

    The track is the same...the actual speeds and mechanisms could be changed, and basically the entire scenery of the ride is being overhauled...it will seem like a nearly new ride experience most likely.

    For comparison, its like the difference from "If you had wings" to "Dreamflight" except the name and sponsorship isn't changing. The track is the same, but the ride experience should be very different.

    The name is not changing, but GM's Chevrolet brand will be the presenting sponsor of the attraction.

    Darn, we'll be down there Nov. 10 - 16, and I was hoping it would be open by then.

    They are probably not new cars though just either a new paint job or a new body but the same drivetrain.

    Only the paint job is different, other then that they are the same. I also heard that the audio system in the cars was getting an upgrade.
