Weird things happen on Epcot’s Test Track!

Well here is a weird story for you from our friends at Doctor Disney

On Sunday Epcot’s Test Track went down due to technical difficulties, something that is not out of the norm, and then something strange happened. A guest at the theme park cut himself out of the seat belt and got out of the ride, to just roam the area. Once the ride started up again he had not returned to his seat.

When another guest in his car got to the unloading area the cast members were made aware of the situation.  The escapee was apparently roaming around the area of the semi-truck. At this point the ride was stopped, guests were evacuated and the search for the man was on.

The guest was not found and it is unknown how he escaped camera. Although in defense of Disney, test track is a mostly dark ride with lights flashing, which would make it hard to spot a moving person, not to mention he could have slipped out with the other guests when they were evacuated.

The seatbelt was fixed by the next day and no one was hurt. Let this be a lesson to everyone out there, when the ride comes to a stop, stay in the car it will start again!

One thought on “Weird things happen on Epcot’s Test Track!

  1. Even on dark rides and attractions, Disney has the ability to light things up. After all, they need to do maintenance on/in these types of attractions too and need to be able to see what they are doing. However, I would be concerned as to how the guest evaded cameras as I would assume that to difficult but they can’t do 100% camera coverage. I think they should develop a modification to the seat belts that will alert security, the ride operations cast and do some sort of shut-down(partial or full) to the attraction in the case of a cut to the seatbelts. I remember in 1989 when I went to Disneyland, people kept “exiting” the Haunted Mansion all over the ride and they kept having to shut the ride down. With Test Track, it’s far more dangerous!
