TBD - Episode 33 Test Track

Postby Chreestopher » Mon Apr 28, 2008 6:43 am

Test Track is one of the premiere thrill attractions at Epcot in Walt Disney world in Florida. Strap in and enjoy the 64.8 mph experience.

As many of you might know I had intended this episode to be Fantasmic! but I have recently found out that there is new lighting and effects for the show. Since I am heading down to Disneyland this coming week I chose to get updated footage of the show for the most Requested Episode I have had. So the next show that will be out as soon as possible after Westfest will Be Fantasmic!

Enjoy!

Works out well for us as we'd probably wait to watch your Fantasmic video 'til after Westfest. Definitely a good choice to get updated footage. We are not questioning your commitment. :thumbsup:

Looking forward to viewing this vidcast...might save it for the plane ride to Cali. :D

Another FAN-TAS-TICO episode as usual for you! The choice of an evening ride for the video was very nice with the lighting and such oon the outside portion, that first brake test always seemed a little odd to me SURE the path the car "should" take it you didn't "skid" is lit more brightly, but that bit SLOT in the middel of the floor just MIGHT be a bit of a give-away as the the outcome of that Brake test, finding a way to camoflage that slot right there or AT LEAST add a second FAKE slot that leads off onto the other path so you MIGHT feel like there was some possibility you would really go that other way might add a bit of a thrill factor to that test.


....For some reason the end of your show reminded me a LOT of Trapped on VacatioN! :wink:

Thanks Brian!

I would agree the first Brake test is a little weird. but all in all a decent ride. The Dusk time ride turned out quite nice it was purely a happy accident. Space ship Earth looks exceptional at that time of day on video.

Nice video, Chris!

I think the camera angle had a lot to do with seeing the slot in the track. When you're sitting down behind the windscreen you don't notice it as easily.

This made me remember the first time we rode Test track. That first experience is great! It's only after you've ridden it a few times that you start noticing things like the slot, the fact that the engine sounds are recorded, etc.

Keep 'em coming!

P.S. See you at LAX Wednesday afternoon!

Thanks Mark, I would agree about the camera angle and exposing the slot. those wind screens are always so banged up and smeared.

Lou I am glad you will be able to watch it with Elise I plan on watching it with my Nephew nexttime I am over there. he realy like the ride .... even though he has oly seen footage. ( cause his mom is too cool to take him .... LOL he has some weird idea that it will happen when he is 5 ... but it loks like everything is going to happen when he is five. kids are funny.) See you soon bro!

Thanks Ray it is a fun ride once you get out side!

Yeah yeah, I KNOW I've not been on in awhile. And the only reason I began posting again is this episode of The Big D.

I've been on Test Track a number of times, so I have to watch a TT video, since I'm not headed down anytime soon. :(( Sad, huh? :D

Anyways, I always thought that the picture stuff was waaaaaaay dimmed. This video proves my suspicions!! I didn't actually SEE you guys with all your cameras! Craaaazy, huh? :D

Glad to have been able to bring you back in for just a bit. Thanks for sharing, I have always been suspect of that technology.
