This is how my son started his 11th birthday. He did a drive along at the track. The car had "cars" look and got up to 120mph. Price was decent for the 3 laps. The other stuff like plaques and short driving movie of your drive is expensive for what you get. He had a fun experience.

I had the opportunity to run on the fitipaldi cup and I had the time of my life. Not only was well organized but they make sure to cover all the bases so you can have a great time. Sometimes is ok to spoil our self and not the whole family. So I give them 20 out of 10 stars... More

Bought this for my husband and he had a great time! He was able to drive a 160 mph of pure fun! The have made it a better with an experienced driver in the actual car with you rather than following a pace car which is what we have had to do in the past. The rest of us did... More

I bought my husband the Ferrari experience, and added the extra 4 laps( they called a few days before our date and offered a deal) He had a fantastic time...couldn't stop smiling afterwards. The staff was friendly and would talk to us and answer any questions we had about the cars. While we were waiting they let us take pictures... More

I bought this as a birthday gift for my Fiance. He absolutely loved it and can't wait to go to some of the other tracks and drive there as well. Once you do it once you get a discount for up to 2 years after for additional experiences! It is a must do again! I might just try it next... More

My husband and son both experienced this attraction. We stayed at the Contemporary during our visit. To get to Richard Petty we hopped on the monorail to the TTC. As you get off the monorail veer to the left and you will see a Richard Petty van waiting to take you to the race track. Our 7 year old did... More

I went for the ride along and told the driver not to hold nothing back and scare me. The drive to get to the track seemed faster to me felt like he was on a Sunday drive to me. I drove race cars for 15 years at my local tracks and was bored at the track Walt Disney World Speedway.... More

The Petty Driving Experience is one of the greatest venues in Orlando! They run a class act driving experience which is second to none! So if you're planning a family vacation to Orlando, put Petty on your list of things that you MUST do! Jerz Viper!
