Tomorrowland Speedway | Disney World Description

Tomorrowland Speedway (Disney World)Take the wheel of a gas-powered car and speed through a winding track to Victory Circle.

Stroll past classic racing marquees and make your way to the racing pit, home to growling, multi-colored speedsters. Designed to look like the famed Indiana Motor Speedway, the racetrack includes well-known backdrops of the motoring world, including the Scoring Pylon, Gasoline Alley and the Yard of Bricks.

At the pit, hop inside a streamlined race car—unique in color and design—and strap yourself in for an exciting and challenging drive. As the checkered flag is waved, you’re off!

3… 2… 1… GO!
Accelerate at 7 miles per hour around a scenic 0.4 mile-long racetrack. Drive around sharp bends, past lush foliage, and pick up the pace underneath a small bridge. Along the way, listen to an announcer call the race overhead, as you pass such iconic attractions as Space Mountain in the not-too-far-off distance.

Go for a personal best or race against a family member or friend. In the end, coast into Victory Circle, at the top of your game—champion of the track!

Safety First
Featuring a real-working gas pedal and steering wheel, your racecar can easily navigate up and down inclines and around sharp bends just like the real thing.

As a safeguard, a guide rail is located underneath the vehicle and the car is equipped with front and rear bumpers.
