WDWNT Reporter Adam Roth got to experience the new Test Track presented by Chevrolet during a cast men her preview recently and he has photos of the new attraction to share with is, so let’s see what’s inside!:
The new entrance
The new trashcans have the World of Motion logo on them
The Chevy ENV in the first queue room
The four categories of the tests are displayed as well, we assume cars from each category will go on display below these
It is the Chevrolet Design Studio at Epcot
More queue displays
As kids talk, the car below is transformed into what they dream up through projection mapping
You are prepared for the design process ahead
Guests are then loaded into one of two design studios
Into the design studio
Car or truck?
You then draw the basic shape of the car which you can then have the computer optimize
You can then drag the lines to see if there is a better shape for your vehicle
You can make the car shorter or longer
Wider or thinner
Select an engine
Add a fun design
There are some TRON pieces you can add to your vehicle
There are literally thousands of possibilities for your vehicle
As you design it, you can see how each decision made in the design process effects the final scoring in each category
Get ready to test your design!
There is a short queue after the Design Studio
More World of Motion logos!
You then scan your RFID card at the load platform
After you are done riding, you can find out your score
You can see where cars are out on the track
The next room allows you to create a commercial
It’s not working yet, but the driving tables are after that
If you don’t ride, you can still design a car and play around in the post-show
The showroom is after that
You can film all kinds of fun ads with the cars on display using your RFID card
New Test Track t-shirts available
Let’s take a look at the ride!
The hill climb
Large walls with projections now block views into the rest of the ride
The blocks are gone on the way down as we descend smoothly into the ride
Stay tuned for on-ride video and more coverage coming very soon!
