Orlando paper profiles Test Track

Posted Thursday, June 28, 2001 5:29 AM | Contributed by Jeff

While not a new ride, you might find it interesting to read about the workings of Disney's Test Track at EPCOT. The ride simulates a number of different automobile testing conditions.

Read it from The Orlando Sentinal.

I just got back from a week at Disney and we rode the Test Track. The article is right, the first part is ok but the end is great!

Was there in 1999 and was about 10 feet from getting on when it closed due to rain :-(.

This ride is my 3rd favorite at Disney! Only Tower or Terror and Rockin' Roller Coaster are in front of it.

Why doesn everyone call Rock 'n' Roller Coaster,...Rockin' Roller Coaster. it's not right. You wouldnt call Millennium Force, 2000 Force would you?
-Just an observation... Everyone seems to do it..

You know its not that big of a deal Iron Wolf! Anyways back to the topic, I rode it back in November and I had a fast pass for it. While I was waiting in line it broke down like 4 times! But Overall it was a Great ride!

I rode in April 2000. Had a fastpass for it. It kept breaking down all day. I know the wait was two hours most of the day, but I waited much less. A good ride, but I was not that impressed. I did like the cars on display after the ride.

Epcot is getting a new show in 2003 (?). It's called Space. It's going to be in the old Horizon's building.

I don't understand. How could going 70(?) mph on a FLAT(although banked) track be a rush? Thats like being in a convertable on the highway.

I'm right there with Raptorfan00. I love this ride. Although I hate to see EPCOT completely different than it was 10 years ago, I highly support this attraction for its unique stages and different environments. Word of caution: do NOT ride KI's Smash Factory afterwards! It doesn't hold a candle to the mighty Mouse!

I thought the same thing about going seventy miles on the flat surface until I went on the ride. The ending was a lot of fun and you feel like you are going a lot faster than seventy miles an hours.

Hey Scanz-just wondering where you live, cause I wanna drive the roads you drive on. Especially if they are the same as TestTrack. The highways near my house are just boring old asphalt without banks.

Iron wolf, they call it Rock 'n Roller Coaster because its based on Aerosmith and they play Rock 'n Roll. Its a pun!
