Test Track

Test Track

An Attraction in EPCOT

Last updated: February 20, 2024

At a Glance

Test Track takes guests through the process of designing a new vehicle and then “testing” their car in a high-speed drive through and around the pavilion.

As they enter the pavilion, guests pass displays of sleek, futuristic concept cars and glossy video screens where engineers discuss the work of car design and consumers explain the characteristics of their perfect car.

After hearing about auto design, guests are admitted into the Chevrolet Design Center to create their own concept car. Using a large touchscreen interface (think a giant iPad), groups of up to three guests drag their fingers to design their car’s body, engine, wheels, trim, and color. The computer screen reflects each design decision’s impact on the car’s capability, efficiency, responsiveness, and power. (For example, designing a large truck with a huge V-8 engine increases the car’s capability and power but drastically reduces its efficiency.) The entire creative experience takes 5–8 minutes.

Next, guests board a six-seat ride vehicle attached to a track on the ground for an actual drive through Chevrolet’s test track. The idea here is that guests are taking part in a computer simulation designed to test their vehicle’s performance characteristics. The tests include braking maneuvers, cornering, and acceleration, culminating in a spin around the outside of the pavilion at speeds of up to 65 mph.

The ride visuals are sleek and eye-catching, but trying to understand them as a coherent story is fruitless. At various points during the ride, video screens show the virtual cars designed by the guests in your vehicle and a status update on how the vehicle’s tests are progressing. Most guests figure out quickly that absolutely nothing in their car’s design has any effect whatsoever on their ride experience.

Test Track’s postshow area continues the design process by allowing guests to create commercials for their concept cars. Farther into the pavilion are displays of actual Chevys, many of which you can sit in.

Test Track breaks down more often than almost any ride in Walt Disney World—roughly 4 out of every 10 days of operation. It’s also one of the attractions most likely to be down at park opening. Ask a cast member whether it’s operating before you trek to this corner of Future World.

When it’s working properly, it’s one of the park’s better attractions—but for this London, Ontario, mom, such instances never materialized:

Test Track breaks down more than any ride I’ve ever seen. We went back there over and over again, got in line, and then had to get out.

A repeat visitor from East Aurora, New York, suggests that all is not lost when the ride malfunctions:

If the ride breaks down, tell a cast member. They’ll most likely give you a slip that allows you to skip the line and ride again. This happened to us twice during the busiest time of the year, and we rode again with no problem.

Because most groups are unwilling to split up, the single-rider line (when it’s offered) is usually much shorter than the regular standby line.
