January 2, 1996 – The World of Motion Pavilion Closes
“It’s fun to be free, to be on the move, to go anywhere with ever a care to.”
On January 2, 1996, the World of Motion Pavilion in Epcot’s Future World officially closed. Sponsored by General Motors, the pavilion provided guests a look at the history of automobiles, with a section called the Transcenter serving as a look at the future of cars. The attraction was replaced by the new General Motors attraction Test Track, which began soft openings in December, 1998.
