Photo Gallery: Farewell to Epcot's Test Track

April 14th, 2012, was the final day of operation for the General Motors Test Track attraction at Walt Disney World's Epcot theme park. To be frank, I was never a huge fan of the oversized slot-car track, especially it's unimaginatively industrial indoor scenes, and the cacophonous queue. The ride replaced the EPCOT Center original World of Motion, a childhood favorite of mine, and was plagued with construction delays that pushed its grand opening from 1997 to 1999.

Still, I always enjoyed the high-speed section at the ride's climax, so I stopped by on Test Track's final day to take the following photos. When Test Track reopens late this year, it will be sponsored by the brand, and feature a sleek new visual style, and lots of interactive technical additions. Look for the ride track itself to remain the same, however.
