Autopia

Hop into one of the charming little cars and take a relaxing drive on the freeways of a long gone future.

Visionaries of the past may have envisioned "Horse-less carriages" driven by machines which could move at great speed, they may have even imagined a future where a network of high speed roads would cross the country making long journeys effortless and fast. (But did they ever envision the traffic jams, delays and breakdowns that we now all know come as part of the package?)

At Autopia guests get a chance to experience how those dreamers of the past may have imagined it could be, here guests take control of small petrol powered cars which they drive around a circuit of roads, tunnels and bridges that pass around an area at the edge of Discoveryland.

For many children, it's a dream come true to take control of the steering wheel press the accelerator and drive - here they get the chance. A metal rail which runs along the middle of the lanes stops the cars from veering of course. But the steering wheel does allow for control for at least a foot or two either side; what some parents might regret as soon as their offsprings learned how to rattle the car.

During the trip along the motorways of the future, decorative advertising boards offer a historic view of the world of yesterday's tomorrow.

Autopia is great fun for children - although it's not unusual to see big kids to revving up the engine along the tracks.

Specials

Seen from the walkways located above the track the cars of Autopia look like models - so fittingly Mattel sponsored the attraction as of 1992, but when it terminated its contract in 2000 all signs of this were taken down and the attraction remained without sponsor till 2002 when Esso jumped in - which is just as fitting, as those cars run on real gasoline...

Limits

Drivers have to be at least 1,32 m high.
