Aloha Friday: Test Track Power vs. Fuel Efficiency
On the new version of Test Track at Disney World’s Epcot, you get to design your own car from the ground up and then see how it handles the testing course. In building your car, you need to balance four factors: Capability, Efficiency, Responsiveness, and Power. As you choose items, you might increase one section but decrease another.
When I built my car, I wound up pushing up the power section above all else. Plasma engine? Sure. Side and rear rocket boosters? Yes, please. Top electrical box that sort of reminded me of a flux capacitor? Ok, that one wasn’t for the power as much as the geek factor.
In the end, I came up with this vehicle:
My car wound up coming in first in all of the Test Track courses. Except for the environmental test. It came dead last there.
My Aloha Friday question for today is: Would you design your Test Track car for Capability, Efficiency, Responsiveness, or Power?
Disclosure: I was invited to the New Fantasyland media event December 5th through 7th. Disney paid for my travel, our park tickets, room, and a few other items. I was able to take B along as my guest, but we paid for her own travel as well as an extra night in the resort. The opinions expressed above are my own.
