View Full Version : Test Track, is it worth the wait?

05-18-2000, 03:13 PM
I was in WDW over March Break and the line for Test Track was always at least an hour and a half so we didn't go on it. I will be going back in August and I was just curious as to whether I should wait it out or only ride it when there is a reasonable wait time? Please get back to me if you can! Thanks a lot!!!

If you want to go, just go through the singles line it is faster. Hope I helped.

It is not worth waiting in that long of a line, but if you do the singles line and get on faster, you will like it a lot.

i think it depends on what u like. if u really, really, really like cars and stuff like that, then it is definitley worth the wait. My family walked right on. it's fun, but i'm not THAT interested in cars 2 wait an hour and a half 2 go. I'd say the most i would wait is 15 minutes. but, like i said, it depends on wat u like!!

I think it is totally worth the wait if you like that kind of thing which I do. and a half hour isnt that long if your there for the day

Hey what's up. Youv'e been hearing alot about the singles line. But I bet no one has told you were it is located. so I'm gonna do you a favor for free.

So hear it goes, you waoit in the line for about 1/4 fourth of the way through. you'll sea a break in the rope. If you follow it there should be a set of concrete stairs, go up them, follow the path inyo the building, and your done.

I hope the next time your in disney world this will help. have a great time.

I love the Test Track! I think it is a bit long of a wait, but it is still fun. It's not all about cars. Well, actually it is. But it's still interesting; how the make cars safe, what can of impact can a test dummy sustain, things like that. That's only the wait area. I suggest you bring cards and play go fish and have the go fish pile in a fanny-pack. The wait can get pretty boring. You have to go through this little briefing movie before you actually get in the cars. Once you actually get on the ride (the car), I thought it was pretty cool. There is this little computer thing in front of you, kinda on the dashboard thing. It shows you what you will be doing. When you test the shocks, first you go over different types of pavement. That gets a little bumpy. Then you test the anti-lock brakes. You have to swerve cones and cars; it's fun b/c you're going pretty fast. Then you have to test the car's ability to go zero to 60 in like 6 seconds and sustain the speed for like 10 sec. If you keep your eyes on the dashboard (and not at the great view you get) you can see what is going on; inside the car and all. Then the ride is over. Like everyone has said, the faster way of getting on (b/c the can't make fast-pass b/c it always breaks donw)is to use the singles line. If you don't want to get split up, don't use it. There are little (I don't know what you would call them) stationed all over where the line goes. It has little tid-bits on cars. Now you can go home and impress your friends with your new knowledge. /infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif When we went there was this guy juggling things and he picks people out of the line to help him and that's cool to watch, especially if you get picked.

Hope this helps!

I think TT is definately worth the wait! It's my favourite ride in the whole of WDW and I've only ridden it twice!! If you're not bothered about cars and stuff it's still really fun, but if you are interested in cars it's fantastic-I once stood in line for over an hour and thought it was worth it. It's so exilerating when you speed round the track outside!

The Normel Line is probebly not the shortest line in WDW but
if you take the fast line tickets (which is free if you still have your tickets) it's about 30 minutes for the car and if you have fast line tickets and your a single the line is nothing but walking right through the line. If you don't like fast line (I know I do) Then it's not to bad for you and/or kids/teens becouse once you Inside the building it is so cool for the rest of the way and PS. Don't worry about the nosie it nothing when your on.

Well if you go to Test Track on the right you will see a little crowd of people or a Fastpass sign go there put your annual or premium pass (I don't know if any others will work) and put it in the slot and out will come a Test Track Fast pass saying to return at a certain time go there show it to security then go in It saves alot of time that way.


05-26-2000, 07:31 AM
I didn't think they could have Fastpass on the Test Track b/c it always breaks down?

i didnt really like test track. when i go back to disney and if it only had a 5 minute wait to go on it. i dont like it i think it has no point. no offense to any one who likes it.

11-12-2000, 06:50 AM
Test Track is my favourite ride in the whole of WDW and I would wait for hours to ride it! But hey, that's just me!! However, there is a singles line which is faster(if you don't mind being separated from the rest of your group just for that ride), or I'm sure I saw a FastPass sign outside when I was there,but when we asked a CM he said there wasn't. Oh well! I think your best bet would be to try the singles line.

Have fun! :)

Here's a tip-if you can, try to ride TT at night, it's spectacular when you go outside!

Test track was good!We came early in the morning, got a fast pass, and then went back for lunch early. it worked out great. and since my brother(6) was afraid because he was how fast it was going, we didi a baby swap and i got to go on it twice. it is definatly worth the wait.

Yeah, Test Track does have FP. In April, when I was down there, we got FP. When to eat in Japan, and when we were done it was near the time for the ticket, so we walked over there, and got in with in 20minutes with our Fast Pass. And it is well worth the wait.

11-12-2000, 08:14 PM
Yes, as someone said, TT does have FastPass. Any ticket works for FP, it doesn't matter if it is a Annual Pass or any others. Personally I didn't think the ride was everything it was made out to be. I won't wait in the regular line, I always went in the singles line which is to the left of the regular line. It is a completely separate line. :)

11-13-2000, 05:52 PM
I think it is worth the wait it is so fun!!!
My whole family loved it.

I hope i helped.

I enjoyed Test Track, but heck, my family got six free passes. :D Me and my dad went on a couple times in a row. It was pretty cool. The entire ride takes about three minutes, but yea, it's okay. Not worth 3 hours, but good. If there's a long line outside, it takes a long time inside, so don't get in the line. It takes about twenty minutes of wasiting inside, but it's not bad in there.

11-17-2000, 07:31 AM
it not worth an 1 or more wait. the ride may be ok but that it . if you still would like to go on, get a fast pass.( than you dont have to wait in the line)

hope it helps

I really like this ride, and think it's worth the wait, but I guess it's just up to you.


11-26-2000, 03:31 PM
i waited more than an hour for test track (before fast pass) and it is DEFINITELY NOT worth the wait!!! you go through hot and cold chambers, go fast, go slow, go outside and that's about it- the ride must've been no more than 45 seconds. definitely DO NOT wait more than a half an hour for this ride!

if you wait to get in line for test track until about thirty minutes before the fireworks start there is only about a 15 min. wait. I went on it during the fireworks and as we were going around the outside of the buliding we could see the fireworks

SINGLES LINE BAYBEEEEE... Then the line is ~15 mins. If you want to ride with your friends/family I'd get a fastpass.

When me and my family went down to WDW at the beginning of June we got fastpass for Test Track around lunch time and had a return time of 6:00 to 7:00 I think. After we ate lunch our faimly went over to the MK for a couple of hours until our fastpasses were usable. Remember that you don't have to use them right away so you can come back anytime during that time slot. Test Track is now my favorite ride in Epcot now since Horizons closed down :( :( :( . Fastpass saved us alot of time. Try to get a fastpass for this ride if you can. It will save you alot of time.

If we can dream it, we can really do it!

01-05-2001, 05:22 PM
I would have to say it's not worth the wait i waited an hour and a half to go on it.

See you later.

01-06-2001, 06:45 AM
When I went to Epcot last week the lines for TT were really long, but we used the FastPass facility and were able to ride it 3 times in one day without really standing in a line at all. Also, early entry days are good for that kind of ride, because you can go on them before the crowds hit the park.

you should go in the singles line or get a fast pass in the morning while they last. It is a really fun ride!!!


01-10-2001, 01:57 PM
I think it is definetly worth the wait, it's a great ride!


01-19-2001, 05:24 PM
If the line was 5 minutes long it still would not be wourth it.Trust me!!!!! :cool: :eek:

01-20-2001, 04:09 PM
....get a fast pass. when we were there we got our fast passes for test track first, then went for lunch. totally worth it. and i would also definantly recomend going on at night so you can see the lights during the parts of the ride outside.


01-20-2001, 10:09 PM
My dad works at GM and they sponser this ride or something, so we always get on without waiting, so I don't know how bad the line is, but I think it's really fun whether you like cars or not!


01-24-2001, 12:44 PM
hehe, this is so nerdy, but my sister and I love to scream really loud when we go on the outside part of Test Track in case so that people on the ground will think it's a really scary ride. Isn't that so pathetic? But it's fun ;)
I would recommend the singles line if you can do it because it's a fun ride - I like when you go in the hot and cold rooms.

23 days until WDW!

01-27-2001, 03:46 PM
Singles Line is a must. Rideing in the dark is realy a lot more fun than in the day. Try to time it so when you go around Illuminatins is playing.
Worth every second in the line. It is 5 1/2 minuets long. <IMG WIDTH="15" HEIGHT="15" SRC="/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif" alt="razz">

01-28-2001, 08:22 AM
This may be just me, but test track is not worth the wait... if you want to go 60 mph in a car, just use SR-536 <IMG WIDTH="15" HEIGHT="15" SRC="/infopop/emoticons/icon_redface.gif" alt="red face">) :cool:

Have a Disney Day :-)

test track if you get fast pass is worth the wait it is fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

P.s even with fast pass there's a line.
