Disney recently released concept art by General Motors for the refurbished Test Track at Epcot, and it shows a very sleek new attraction. The re-imagined version of the ride is slated to open December 6, and with this sneak peek, it looks like it will be quite fabulous. We also got some more information on exactly how the attraction is eventually going to play out.
Guests will wait in a very modern queue until it is time for them to design their SimCars.
Once guests get to the design stage, they will create their vehicles with help from Chevrolet designers. Special attention will be paid to key features: capability, efficiency, responsiveness, and power. This will be done at design kiosks, where guests will be able to create the cars they’ve always dreamed about.
Once their virtual vehicles have been completed, guests will have the chance to board a ride vehicle and test drive their designs through the ride though portion of the attraction. The cars will drive over surfaces and conditions that simulate the process that Chevy engineers use to ensure the quality of their vehicles, evaluating and scoring your SimCar based on the aforementioned four “key features.” The attraction is slated to be a “dazzling multi-sensory digital experience”.
In the post-show, guests will be able to compare their designs to a baseline version and see how they fared. Car designers (guests) will get to also create commercials using their cars. Also, guests may pose with cars on a virtual, green screen background, which can easily change up your “location” and can be sent to family and friends at home via a virtual postcard. Finally, guests will still be able to get behind the wheel of the latest model Chevy vehicles and have questions answered by product specialists.
