Test Track ride at Epcot to be redesigned as a Chevrolet Design Center

by

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.

What I understand from this is that only the preshow and waiting area will be changed and not the whole of the horribly ugly ride scenes.
Very disapointing. Cars is looking wonderfull in California…

I am a GM engineer, with global technical responsibility for air conditioning and powertrain cooling. I think the current ride, which has been a source of entertainment and excitement for many thousands of people, is a good representation of the testing that a vehicle undergoes. I am truly excited about the changes described. They will refresh as well as add new elements and excitement. Further, I am delighted to understand that the General Motors/Disney relationship continues.

It seems like just a way for Disney to get more money out of Chevy. It helps Chevy because they are advertising too, but they are paying big bucks for it. To me, it’s dumb to do this. Riding that ride doesn’t make me want to buy a Chevy, or another GM product. And I could careless about that showroom.
