My Fiance bought me a gift card for my birthday for the experience of a lifetime. I had done this a few years back and loved it. We misplaced the card when it came time to schedule a track. We had the receipt and letter. They would not honor it. Richard is a great guy met him several times. He... More

Getting to the track was a bit of a pain, GPS kept sending us in circles. Once we got there, there was a little bit of a wait (15 minutes) until the class started, which spouses could sit in on. Once he got behind the wheel, he had lots of fun, except his instructor kept him slower than the person... More

Ever had mother in law in your car? Well here she sits next to you. Safety? More like "go right", "go left" and "don't break" (before corners). Eight laps is very short time to sort out interpersonal chemistry. I thought this would be the fastest I ever drove (of course!). In fact Italian highway is faster.

I drove at the Vegas track, and had an awesome time. The staff were brilliant and the whole program went great. Anybody who is into NASCAR will have an amazing time!

First, I was not the driver! They had professional race car drivers. The thought of getting in the car was intimidating at first, but the driver was great. He explained the process and talked other things to keep it fun, but stayed focused as he drove around the track at speeds well over 100 miles per hour. I think driver's... More

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

My husband and son recently did the ride along at this race track. It is a little hard to find - it is literally in the parking lot of the Magic Kingdom and the signs aren't good. BUT once you find it - it is an incredible experience. My husband and son both got suited up, got their pictures made... 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
