Epcot is one of four theme parks located within Walt Disney World in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, USA. The name is an acronym for "Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow". The park was originally a planned city of the future as visioned at Walt Disney. However, the project was cancelled after Walt's death in December 1966 as Disney thought that it would be impossible to run a city without his guidance. In the early 70's, after Magic Kingdom opened, Disney was planning to turn Walt's dream into a second park for Walt Disney World. The park opened as EPCOT Center on October 1, 1982. In the mid-90's the name was changed to "Epcot". The park is currently the 4th most visited theme park in North America, and the 7th most visited theme park in the world.

Test Track is a high-speed slot car dark ride on the eastern side of Future World at Epcot, a theme park at the Walt Disney World Resort in Bay Lake, Florida. The ride is a simulated excursion through the rigorous testing procedures that General Motors uses to evaluate its concept cars, culminating in a high-speed drive around the exterior of the attraction.
The attraction soft-opened to the public on December 19, 1998, after a long delay due to problems revealed during testing and to changes in design. As a result, the attraction officially opened on March 17, 1999. Test Track replaced the World of Motion ride.
Originally, guests rode in "test vehicles" in a GM "testing facility" through a series of assessments to illustrate how automobile prototype evaluations were conducted. The highlight of the attraction is a speed trial on a track around the exterior of the building at a top speed of 64.9 miles per hour (104.4 km/h) making it the fastest Disney theme park attraction ever built.
Test Track closed for refurbishment on April 15, 2012, and re-opened on December 6, 2012. It is now sponsored by the Chevrolet brand instead of General Motors as a whole. Guests now design their own car in the Chevrolet Design Studio. Then they board a "Sim-Car" and are taken through the "digital" testing ground of the "SimTrack". Throughout the ride, guests see how their designs performed in each test. After the ride, guests can see how their car did overall, film a commercial, race their designs, and have a picture taken with their own virtually designed vehicle with a chosen backdrop in the background.
Test Track is located in Future World East, which is planned to be re-designated World Discovery. It is also the fastest ride at Walt Disney World, going 8 mph fastest than it's closest competitor.
Mission: Space is a space-themed pavilion and attached centrifugal motion simulator attraction located on the eastern side of Future World at Epcot, a theme park at the Walt Disney World Resort in Bay Lake, Florida.
