Disney and Chevrolet Collaborate on Reopening of Test Track

On Thursday, December 6, 2012, Disney's EPCOT theme park will formally reopen Test Track Presented by Chevrolet, a popular attraction at the Walt Disney World Resort. For the past 18 months, Chevrolet designers and Disney "imagineers" have been reimagining and updating Test Track to create one of the most interactive thrill-rides in the park.

Test Track allows visitors to become automotive designers and test their own vehicle design in a high-speed simulation. Advanced computer technology - similar to that used by Chevrolet designers every day - powers the guest design experiencem, while radio frequency technology allows them to take their unique vehicle design with them through the entire attraction. The amateur car designers need to consider everything that a real designer would: fuel economy, environemental sustainability, performance, and or course, shape, size, and color.
