Test Track Closes for New Name Change and Design Center

Disney and General Motors announced today that have renewed their sponsorship agreement for the popular Epcot Attraction “Test Track.” Financial terms were not discussed but if you remember back when Test Track was built GM paid a whopping $100 Million Dollars for the previous 10 year contract!

The attraction is set to close sometime in April of 2012 to be upfitted with new Chevrolet cars and all new Chevrolet Design Center where you can go in and make your own concept cars.

Here is information from a press release:

“We are excited to renew our long-term alliance with General Motors,” George Aguel, senior vice president of corporate alliances for the Walt Disney Co., “This unique agreement extends collaboration between two of the most recognized brands in the world, a relationship that spans over 30 years. The re-imagined Test Track Presented by Chevrolet will continue our shared goal of providing unique and innovative experiences that engage Disney guests in exciting and interactive ways.” ”

As part of the re-imagining, the Future World attraction will feature a sleek new “Chevrolet Design Center at Epcot” immersing Guests in the fascinating world of automotive design. Amid upbeat music, engaging media, dramatic lighting and a collection of Chevrolet concept cars and model vehicles, guests themselves will become automotive designers – and peer into the future of personal transportation in the process.

At interactive design and styling workstations, Guests will be able to create their own custom concept vehicles. The adventure will then shift into high gear as Guests buckle into their 6-person “SimCar” ride vehicle and put their design through its paces on the exhilarating hills, switchbacks and straight-aways of the Test Track circuit.

Their performance testing complete, Guests will move into a post-show area filled with special effects and be scored on how well their custom concept vehicle did. And of course, Guests will be able see the very latest Chevrolet vehicles in an all-new state-of-the-art showroom.

Stay tuned to our Disney World Refurbishment schedule where we will have refurb and closure information for you on the 15th of every month.
