Test Track at EPCOT returns to early closures

EPCOT's Test Track is once again back to 6:30pm closes this week as maintenance work continues.

Test Track closed at 6:30pm on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday last week, and again closed yesterday at 6:30pm and is scheduled for a 6:30pm close tonight.

It appears the return to normal hours last Friday was perhaps more associated with the busy weekend period, and not the completion of the work. No word yet on how long the earlier closures will continue as the schedule only gets updated on the day of.

I think it was another thread that said, "If you don't make time for maintenance, your equipment will make it for you". YaY Disney!

Rough day for Epcot, Frozen has been down for a while as well.

Looks like Test Track didn't reopen today after last night's early close.

I'd like it if they rethemed this ride it makes little to no sense. The original version sucked too, but at least it had better theming.

It can't run in the rain, and now can't run at night? I assume some sort of new law saying that all vehicles need headlights including slot cars?

Sorry, my bad. You are right. Mission:Space!!!!

TT was not built next to Test Track. It was, however, built next to Mission:Space, which the poster implied was "one of the worst rides ever built..."

Sorry to butt in, but they said TT. Test Track.

I think they're surreptitiously filling in a sinkhole that secretly threatens to bring down most of Futureworld... er, sorry, Epcot Discovery.

At the risk of taking this thread grossly off-topic, you can't possibly be referring to Mission:Space!?!?

No it is not like saying that. Really not anything like saying that. If that is what you understood try again. I understand the original tone of EPCOT. I was there and rode all of these rides. Though each ride, World of Motion, Horizons and Spaceship Earth had different themes they were very much the same ride concept. I said nothing about wanting fast rides. So you know what you can do with the Six Flags comment. I also mentioned I enjoyed the first iteration of Test Track better. It stated, as you went through each section why you were there and what was being tested.

I’m guessing this is the result of a major project that either can be done all at once in a refurb or done in phases, but the individual tasks just needs a little longer than an overnight window. Thinking it’s tlc for future reliability, not a issue of something that keeps breaking.
