If driving a car fast isn’t enough – if you want to design that car before you get behind the wheel – then Disney’s new Test Track is for you. Test Track at Epcot has recently undergone a complete makeover. The new queue now focuses on the Chevrolet’s Automotive Design process, from the beginning sketches of the car to the actual vehicle you see on the showroom floor. You will ride through the attraction in a six-passenger SimCar, but your design follows you through the ride in a virtual sense. At the end, you will find out how your design compares to the SimCar in the areas of Capability, Efficiency, Responsiveness and Power.
A new soundtrack will add not only music, but special sound effects as well. The attraction will feature four show scenes. In Capability, your car is tested for rough road and weather conditions. Efficiency tests what effect your car will have on the earth. Responsiveness tests the car’s maneuverability. The last section is everyone’s favorite – Speed! Feel the wind in your hair as you zip around the outside track.
The post-show has been redesigned as well. Your car will be scored against cars from the rest of the day. Multiple interactive elements allow you to further tweak your design to your liking. See your car featured in a TV commercial or even race it on a virtual track. The showroom featuring Chevrolet cars is still there, and there are photo ops with concept cars.
