I know what goes on here. The same company that owns the Exotic Driving Experience owns the RPDE. They practice the same unsafe styles. A man recently lost his life here because of it. The cars they use are from the mid to early 2000s and are BAD. Cracked frames and roll cages everywhere. Cover ups galore. They will lie... More

Although there are limitatins placed on the rookie driver, "no accelerator in the turns i still managed to hit 110 MPH, i am certain liability insurance issues are the reason you are not permited to increase speed at the spex of the turnd. Never the less, the experience was well eorth the cost. By the end of this year they... More

Decided when I was in Orlando to surprise my girlfriend and take her for a ride along experience. Myself and a friend went along as well. The sign in process was easy and we were directed to put a racing suit on. Outside there was a drizzle of rain so we were a bit worried we wouldn't be able to... More

We were both very excited to get into the cars and experience what the guys and gal do on the weekends. We were in 4th gear by the time we got out... More

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!
