Disney and General Motors have renewed a multi-year agreement and will be reimagining the Test Track attraction at Epcot. After a refurbishment, this fall guests will design custom Chevrolet vehicles and test out their design on the test track.
As part of the redesign, the focus of the attraction will be on Chevy and on the design portion of auto manufacturing. The testing theme will be changed to the “Chevrolet Design Center at Epcot.” The queue area is expected to include music, media, dramatic lighting and Chevrolet concept cars and model vehicles.
The attraction is expected to become more interactive with guests designing their custom concept vehicle at interactive stations, then they’ll board their six-person “SimCar” vehicle as the ride begins, going onto the Test Track course. In the post ride area, guests will be able to see how well their design scored on the test track. The latest Chevrolet cars will still be on display as well.
The current Test Track attraction will close in April and will reopen sometime this fall with the new changes.
