    Hi there, My 11 year old loves cars and I know he would just love going on Test Track in EPCOT. I (an over 70 grandma) cannot handle the speed. May I enter with him for the first part, have him ride on his own, then meet him after the ride? Thanks!

    Hello, Alice! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I bet you can't wait to race over to Epcot during your upcoming trip! Test Track opened in 1999, and it is still the fastest Disney theme park attraction ever built with top speeds of 65 miles per hour. Before boarding the attraction, Guests design their own Chevrolet Custom Concept Vehicle that is tested based on four criteria: Capability, Efficiency, Responsiveness, and Power. My teenage son has always loved this ride (even when he was a tiny Mouseketeer) with its hairpin turns and wicked braking maneuvers, and to him, there's nothing better than hitting top speed on that final straightaway. All this being said, Test Track is not as scary as it sounds- just remember to take off your Mickey Ears before riding it!

    You are more than welcome to wait in the queue with your grandson, even if you decide not to ride. After he gets settled, ask a Cast Member to direct you to the exit that takes you to the gift shop. Keep in mind that if he plans to utilize FastPass+ for this ride, then you'll both need a FastPass+ entitlement in order to use that queue. This attraction also has a Single Rider Line which moves pretty quickly as most parties will be in groups of four or five, leaving one or two extra seats needing to be filled on many vehicles. Just ask a Cast Member to direct you (and a FastPass+ will not be required).

    Mickey and I hope you have a thrilling trip, Alice!
