Talking Test Track- Ride A Thon!!

So do you want to ride a ride from opening of the party to the bitter end? If you do, sign up here. I am trying to put together a group of people who will ride Test Track at Epcot for as long as we can. I am looking for some looser.. ops, I mean Test Track officanatos to ride with me. I can set up a time, place, etc. If people sign up, It'll be fun!

If TT isn't your thing, consider Honey, I Shrunk the Audience.

Talking

For what ever strange reason a couple years back my brother and I did TT 6 times in a row and then broke for lunch. Ofcourse we went right after lunch for ride number 7 and that was the biggest mistake I've probably ever made down there. I wasn't up for anymore rides on ANYTHING after that for a couple hours. LOL

I said TT because it is open durring the party. I can't do another ride-a-thon becasue our coatch won't allow us to seperate from the group.

Well, you can count me in. . .

But, the thing is. . .Test Track was usually operating for an additional hour beyond Future World's closing, but not until the end of the team party. Also, it's open to the public as well - or, at least, I think it is.

And, well, with the way Test Track runs, a ride-a-thon might only consist of two rides

But, either way, I'll be there

Test track is weak

Try doing a ride-a-thon on the Aerosmith Rock and Rollecoaster!

That was hard to take for some people only doing it once!

Crazy Vinnie! lol

You said it brother. TT dosn't have the best record. But from what I heard, it is open durring the team party, that's why I chose it instead of ToT or RnR.

For all those crazy enough to wake up early on sunday morning - usually MGM is open an hour early... which means if you get there at 7:30-8 AM you can get right in - we did this last year and rode aerosmith 6+ times in a row (no wait) - it was nuts.

The only thing test track is good for is stealing those zip ties you desperately need, otherwise I wouldn't waste my time again. To each their own...

The Test Track is ok, but I ride it every year because being on a GM sponsored team we get VIP passes to jump to the front of the line, and we get to go up to the visitors center upstairs, its really nice up there. GM rules!

I wondered how those robotics kids got up there...
I thought they where just better at, um, getting lost.

I didn't have the GM shirt, but I *did* try getting lost.

I got about halfway through the building, but not to the lounge, unfortunately. Then, I was nabbed. . . so, I played 'lost tourist' and got shown back to the regular line

This year, though, I know Clark and DJ are going to bring me up there...right guys?
