Autopia is a race car track Disneyland attraction, in which patrons steer specially designed cars through an enclosed track. Versions of Autopia exist at Anaheim, California and Disneyland Paris in Marne-la-Vallée, France. There was also an Autopia at Hong Kong Disneyland on Lantau Island, Hong Kong before it closed on June 11, 2016. Other versions of the attraction can be found at the Magic Kingdom as the Tomorrowland Speedway and formerly at Tokyo Disneyland as the Grand Circuit Raceway. A previous generation of Disneyland's Autopia operated for over a decade at the Walt Disney Hometown Museum in Marceline, Missouri; one of the retired cars is now on display. Before the park opened, the cars were tested without the bumpers, and were almost completely destroyed by the test drivers. Bumpers were fitted around the vehicle, but there were still problems with collisions, as a guide rail had yet to be implemented on the ride. Eventually the vehicles were fitted with spring-loaded bumpers to discourage collisions.

The next stop of Autopia is Avenue of Stars Tsim Sha Tsui, old site is a branch of Starbucks. The style is different as other version, they used some rubber tire cars from Mattel, including Raoul, Max, Miguel and Lewis, 5 HK dollars each but no compensation when your car dropped into sea. This is the rare track set from Mattel, tracks isn’t sold in store. Expect the synthetic rubber tires racers, all vehicles including diecasts, do not put them in the track otherwise the separator will be damaged and hurt the tourists.
