For my husband's 65th birthday I set him up behind the wheel in a NASCAR reace car with the Richard Petty Driving Experience. We scheduled the "experience" and traveled to Orland on our way back from the Yucatan before heading home to northern California. Unfortunately, we received an email, while in Mexico, a week before his "experience", cancelling his drive.... More

Whether you take the ride-around or drive yourself on one of the "Experiences", this is a great way to spend time. Professionally run by experts, there's no faster way to travel (albeit in a circle) in the whole of Orlando. Forget the Disney Parks and book your rides here!

An exhilarating experience for my husband who drove 150 MPH for the 1st time ever. 2 of our sons also had the desire to try out & they did! Not a dull moment and complete excitement!

If you like race cars and always wanted to get in one; this is a great experience. ou spend the first part being oriented to the track and the rules and then you ride as a group around the track with the instructor showing you the places on the track where you need to be for turns and when to...

Fun little race decent speed and a good time. The cars are old and it's difficult to keep the gas pedal down. Our 9 year old was unable to "drive" for more than 30 seconds

This was the best ride in Epcot. My kids are 8 and 9 and this was their favorite. They enjoyed designing their own cars in line.

A birthday present for our now 16 year old and a couple of his buddies. When three 16 year old boys get out of the car and yell awesome you know they are doing something right. The staff and facilities were great. The video you have an option to buy simultaneously shows the passenger, the track, and where on the... More

Ok it's my 60th birthday and my wife surprised me with a 30 lap experience. I love to watch NASCAR but to get in the car and drive it just shows you what these guys do on the track. The guys and gals working there are great. Made me feel very comfortable before I got into the car. If you... More
