Test Track Canopy Removed for Hurricane Ian. Hurricane Ian blew through the Florida Panhandle this week, and Disney was taking no chances with it. From closing the Parks to hunkering the guests down in the Resorts, and taking major precautions inside the Parks. Like strapping down Trashcans, or wrapping up all loose objects together.

A major precaution Disney Cast Members took was to remove the giant blue tarp that makes up the roof of Test Track in Epcot. Test Tracks metal scaffolding holds up a giant roof that is over 50′ X 100′. The blue roof is not a permanent structure and is not meant to withstand hurricane-force winds.

We were over at the Epcot 40th Anniversary today and saw the scaffolding roof was not replaced yet. More than likely because Disney Cast Members were setting up for the event today, and also because Disney is still cleaning up and making things perfect for the guests. it should make its return any day now.

Take the Ultimate Test Drive

Cruise over to the gleaming Chevrolet Design Center to create your own virtual concept car. When you’re done, buckle up in a 6-passenger “SIM Car” and take it for an exhilarating spin on the test track. 

Rev through rough terrain and obstacles along the winding circuit. Accelerate through straightaways, maneuver switchbacks through inclement weather, hug curves banked at 50-degree angles and scale hills up to 3 stories high. 

Reach speeds of up to 65 miles per hour as you put your car through its paces. After each test, check the scoreboard to see how your vehicle performed!

After the Test

Make and share a commercial for your design, race your car again on a miniature virtual test or pose for a picture with your vehicle against a dramatic backdrop for a souvenir of your supercharged day.
