Re-Imagined Test Track Will Put Guests in the Designer’s Seat This Fall at Epcot

Just saw this posted over on the Disney Parks Blog

Beginning this fall, Epcot guests will be able to enjoy a re-imagined version of the popular Future World attraction, Test Track presented by Chevrolet.

Full story here.

Curious to see how that works and if you become part of a "design team" with others to make a 6-person team for the test ride.

**Update**
I just found a more detailed copy of the Press Release over at touringplans.com

Link here

Looks like it will be closed when we go in late April Sad

I'll be excited to see if it's a significant change or not. Seems like fall is a little soon to make too many changes.

I tend to agree with Brad it doesn't seem like enough time to make significant or radical changes.

Can't wait to see what this means in real terms for the ride.

Im curious to see what happens as well. Seems like Disney is starting to get into this "Different ride everytime you ride". Star Tours seems to be a hit with it... but dont know how it is going to translate to Test Track.

Does it seem like it's becoming a simulation type ride? Or still an actual ride? I can't tell by the description. I really hope they don't make it awful because I enjoy TT!

The Disney Social Media person who posted about it on the Disney Parks blog says in the Comments section of the post that it's still going to be an actual ride, not a simulation.
