The Tomorrowland Speedway lets you take to a small gasoline-powered car and travel at a staggering 7 mph around the ever shortening Speedway circuit. When you first lay eyes on the speedway, it looks like its going to be a great ride. The sound of those little engines popping along and the smell of burning fuel would make anyone think you were at a Harley convention. But alas, this ride is designed for small kids. The cars are on a fixed rail around the track, so even if you don't bother to steer, you'll still get all the way round. 

If you've got young kids, you'll probably need to hold down the gas pedal for them and let them steer. They will probably love this ride, but adults may find it a tad dull and disappointing. 
The speedway gets very busy and queues are notoriously slow. If you do ride, for a shorter wait in the queue turn off at the bridge to the first loading area, this will generally be faster than continuing to the second loading area. Also, when out on track, there is no rush to get back to the loading area as you will likely have to queue just as long to get out!
