Description: World of Motion (October 1, 1982–January 2, 1996), sponsored by General Motors [1], was the former tenant of the Transportation pavilion at Epcot in Walt Disney World, Lake Buena Vista, Florida. It was an opening day attraction at EPCOT Center in 1982 and it closed in 1996 to make way for Test Track, a new thrill ride through a GM testing facility. Visitors would board moving Omnimover vehicles, and would be taken through scenes that were populated with Audio-Animatronic figures and some projection effects. It was a whimsical look at the history and achievements in transportation ranging from cavemen having to use foot power, the invention of the wheel, Leonardo Da Vinci's plans for gliders and flying machines, Christopher Columbus setting sail for America, and the first automobiles. Among the many gags were different attempts at inventing the wheel, a used-chariot sale, and the world's first traffic jam. The grand finale of the attraction featured CenterCore, a sparkling metropolis of the future that seemed to be in perpetual motion. Riders looked into mirrors showing them in a gleaming futuristic car. At the ride's conclusion, visitors disembarked into the exciting TransCenter, an interactive area about tomorrow's vehicular transportation.
