Prepare yourself for an exhilarating experience through GM's (General Motors) car testing facility, where your vehicle will be tested on a variety of industry standard tests such as the hill climb, suspension and brake testing, environmental conditioning and high speed acceleration.

After a quick safety briefing, you'll hop aboard your six seater test vehicle and begin the scheduled testing. First up is the hill climb, via a series of tight, hair-pin turns, then its time to test your suspension across uneven and bumpy surfaces.  Next comes the brake tests, firstly with normal brakes, then ABS brakes. The environmental chambers test your vehicle for the extremes of weather it may face, from freezing cold temperatures to very hot, as well as a corrosion test to ensure it will survive the exposure to the elements. Then you'll see what it feels like to be a crash test dummy in the 'crash' barrier test before heading outside and accelerating from 0-65mph around a looping and banking track. With all tests complete, its back to the facility for a thermal imaging scan and disembarkation, hopefully in one piece!

Tips & Fun Facts

Taller guests should ask to sit up front as there is more legroom available in that row.
If you don't mind your group being split up, make use of the single rider line. Quite often they allow several from this line through at a time so the chances are you might not be split up.
Ride photos are taken just as you pass through the 'crash barrier' so be ready to strike a pose. You can view/purchase these as you exit the ride.

Hidden Mickeys

In the queue area, you'll see a Mickey 'PEZ' dispenser in a cup on a workbench in area 2A "Lab Test Vehicle".

Also in the queue area (area 8B) on a white workbench are three large washers that form a familiar shape.

In the cold chamber, a Mickey image made from frost is visible on the back wall (right of car as you enter).

At the crash barrier, hoses coiled in shape of Mickey head (appears in purchased photo)
