The green stuff is only there to protect the track during the roof construction. ;)
The track and supports are both gray for the outdoor section, and black indoors.

I still don't understand why it has an outdoor section in the first place.
Top 10:
El Toro, Boulder Dash, Magnum, Phantom, Maverick, Goliath (SFOG), Millenium, Nitro, Dragster, Storm Runner

I have to imagine that out of all those Imagineers working on this ride that somebody knows what they're doing with the outdoor section. It seems weird to me too, but I've got plenty of faith in Disney to provide a suuuper quality product.

Remember, the movie does enter the real world. So it could just be as simple as "you exit the computer"

That's a good point, actually - it doesn't mesh with the lightcycle concept, so there would have to be some transition where you (Sam, I suppose) manage to jump your own motorcycle into the grid. I'd imagine plenty of effects would could make that happen on the brake run immediately following the hill into the building, and I'd be curious to see if maybe some light effects on the bikes (LED panels?) could make them 'transition' from Sam's normal bike to blue/orange lightcycles once you've entered the Grid.

Like I said before: I'm sure they've got it all figured out, and it'll make sense once it all comes together.

It "might" happen, and I am sure it would look lovely, but maybe a few thousand LEDs are going into
that outdoor mesh canopy. And with it being launched out of the bottom of the show building, it's a
perfect effect prior to entering The Grid (upper track into the bldg.).

That said, I am very curious what that 'thing' is, above The Grid entrance. Looks interesting.

^ :omg: Wow. This Disney park is definitely one for exercising in, LOL!
From where I make out the gardens area in front of The Castle, with Dumbo
and the Carousel in there too... wow. That whole area looks like the size of
Hong Kong Disneyland, lol. (Not really. Just about, though.)

Looking forward to the hiking around, there. :mickey:

EDIT to add: And being able to make out some of the pathway of the outdoor
portion of the Grotto Boat Ride is nice, too.

Disney will be raking in the dough on this one. The number of Chinese visitors at Tokyo Disney/Sea last week was huge compared to 3 years ago.
When they get their own park, the queues will be hellish.
