Tomorrowland Speedway is one of the original Walt Disney World attractions, dating back to the opening of the Magic Kingdom theme park on October 1, 1971.
The queue is outdoors,with some of it shaded, and winds back and forth until you’re directed to one of the loading bays.
The loading area of the attraction features panels of the three annual Indianapolis Motor Speedway races — the Indianapolis 500, the Brickyard 400 and the United States Grand Prix at Indianapolis. Other panels depict races around the moon, Saturn and other outer space destinations.
Riders are strapped into their cars and travel along the 4/10 mile track, with banks and turns, while hearing the calls of world famous announcer Tom Carnegie from sound speakers positioned around the track. As you cross the finish line, the checkered flag is waved and you arrive in Victory Circle.
The area is marked by the Indianapolis 500 logo and the display of a winning race car. Spectators can experience the attraction from the observation bridge, or from outside the attraction along the route.
The queue for this attraction is long and winding, up and down stairs. The best time to visit is early in the morning.
