    Yes, saw it from the monorail a few weeks ago and at that time there was a lot of construction work going on. They were building a block wall. This was on a Saturday night and they were working.

    We were there one night this past week until close. We were taking our time leaving (two kids sound asleep in a stroller made a lovely evening to walk with my DH) and we swore on a few different occasions we could hear the cars going around the outside. The first time we looked at each other like did you just hear that too? So of course being the good Diser that I am, I made sure we walked closer! The second time I was definitely more confident! I still don't know for sure if that is what we heard, but it totally sounded like the cars out on the track!

    They're probably just testing the attraction. I'm pretty certain it's not open to anyone yet. I'm glad you were an investigator though! [​IMG]

    Certainly don't mean to not share some pixie dust, but we were there 3 weeks ago and quite honestly, I will be surprised if it actually opens on 12/6.

    CMs are in training, but soft openings aren't expected for at least another week or later. The wall will come down first... that's how you know it's getting close!

    CMs are definitely training over there now and cars are being tested. It's getting closer.

    Throwing pixie dust at all of you. I will forever cherish my memory of a soft opening of the original opening of Test Track Christmas 1997 (or 1998 I forget). Love the ride!

    Oh I know it is not open! I was just very curious as everything I had been reading doubted the Dec 6th opening date saying that it was no where near ready!!!! It seriously seemed like sound effects at first because we haven't heard it in so long! But it definitely was something going around in the dark!
