Tomorrowland Speedway reviews
Theme Park Insider readers offer their ratings and reviews for Tomorrowland Speedway, a track ride in Tomorrowland at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom. (The minimum height to ride is 32 inches.)
Written by Robert Niles
Strap into your own miniature race car for a lap around the Tomorrowland Speedway. You won't actually pass anyone with that rail down the middle of the track keeping you on course, but that can't stop you from pretending — especially if you're a child who's getting behind the wheel of a car, and pressing the gas pedal, for the first time.
It might be a classic, but this isn't an attraction that should still be around. The problems are numerous, it smells of exhaust, the line is slow and the racers are slower, the cars are attached to a metal track so you can't actually drive them, and it's just not a fun ride, not even for little ones. I don't understand why it's still around. - Sarah Bebb
A fun ride, but the line is always way too long. - Emily Kramer
Take it out and put an E-ticket in here. (Dark ride, rollercoaster) - Owen Scott
One of my favorites, as a kid. The one at Lego land totally over shows this. The cast members who work here get payed extra because of the dangerous gas fumes from the cars. 3/10 - Jaiden Cohen
Still a decent ride no matter your age. 6/10 - Christopher Sturniolo
Yeah, well, for kids this might be the first time to steer a car themselves. Thus, they might get excited. Everybody else might avoid this, it offers no theming (except for the race atmosphere), the cars are really slow, even slower when the one in front of you doesn't go at "full speed". Also slow moving are the lines, which can get rather long pretty often. - Chris W.
A lot better than I expected. Nice atmosphere. - Rob Pastor
It's pretty bad since EVERYONE IS A SLOW ASS!!! 5/10 - Eric Cartman
Although the ride is okay, I hate waiting 30 Minutes. The carts are stuck on a rail so it's not that realistic - Brendan Harrison
