Can You ACTUALLY Buy a Car At EPCOT’s Test Track?

“Energizing for Power test.”

Test Track is one of EPCOT’s most popular attractions, a high-speed car ride that lets Walt Disney Word Guests experience a simulated journey through the testing procedures that General Motors uses to evaluate its concept cars.

The thrill ride culminates in a high-speed drive around the exterior of the EPCOT attraction, one that leaves Guests’ hair (and potentially hats and glasses) blowing in the wind! The “Power Test” at the end of the ride pushes Guests to a top speed of 64.9 miles per hour, making it the fastest Disney theme park attraction ever built.

But something that has always fascinated Guests is whether you can actually purchase a new car in the showroom at the end of the ride. Well, here’s your answer!

The high-speed attraction (with probably the best single rider line) opened at the Walt Disney World Resort back on March 17, 1999, replacing the World of Motion ride, which closed three years earlier.

Located in World Discovery, the EPCOT ride is sponsored by General Motors’ Chevrolet. The original version of Test Track showed Guests how testing devices, including crash-test dummies, are used to measure the structure and safety of vehicles, followed by an exhilarating ride through sharp curves, sudden stops, and the big finale.

Test Track was redesigned in 2012 to a more futuristic feel. Guests now design their own “Chevrolet Custom Concept Vehicle” in the Chevrolet Design Center that is tested against four criteria: Capability, Efficiency, Responsiveness, and Power.

The Disney ride experience concludes in a showroom featuring current and future Chevrolet products. Guests can use their MagicBand, ticket, or design key that has their Chevrolet Custom Concept Vehicle to see their scores from the ride, play games, and make an ad in the “Chevrolet Showroom.”

In the showroom, Disney Park Guests can also check out some of the newest Chevrolet vehicles, such as the Chevy Camaro, Equinox, and Spark. The prices of most, if not all, of these automobiles are listed as well. But just like a normal car showroom, can you buy a car from a theme park?

Well, the answer is technically no. You can’t drive off the Test Track showroom floor with a brand-new Camaro, but you can start the process.

Walt Disney World does not have the required infrastructure or legal abilities to sell you a car, but the GM representatives can refer you to a local GM dealer and have the relevant brochures sent to your house in the mail. The car dealer will reference your conversation with the Test Track showroom representative.

So yes, if you do purchase a car like this, you can technically say you started the buying process at a Walt Disney World theme park!

The official Walt Disney World description of Test Track reads:

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!

So, next time you exit Test Track – just before the gift shop – remember to stop by the array of Chevrolet cars and trucks on display in the showroom. Go on and touch, take photos, sit right inside, and maybe even start the buying process!

Just imagine driving out of the EPCOT parking lot in a brand-new Chevy Spark or Chevy Silverado!
