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!

My son is 10, so riding in a real race car around Disney Speedway was a great start to our trip. He was excited and the staff and drivers made it fun and very easy for him to enjoy

This was a huge treat. I mean when can you actually drive a real NASCAR car. Ok, so my son and I didn't drive, we did the ride along, but it was enough for me. But a teaser for my son. This was a cool thing to do. If you have a passion for this and want to have a... More

My kids always worry about what to get the old man who has everything for Christmas. My daughter talked them into the NASCAR ride along at the WDW Speedway and I couldn't be happier that she did. I will agree with some of the previous reviewers that some of the staff in the office could use some experience and a... More

This was the first time I did this. Second time in VegasI saw this a while back and thought I have to try it sometime. Days of Thunder. Olden arcade games. Beforehand I thought that whilst I may go quick, it might be a little bit dull. How wrong I was! Wow! I booked 30 laps. Staying 3 car lengths... More

Although there were certain aspects of our driving experience that was very good, we did encounter some very disappointing issues during our time with the Richard Petty Driving Experience in Daytona. I emailed them, but to date I have not heard any response. I would have at least been somewhat satisfied if they tried to resolve the issues in any... More

The experience was great but the service could have been better. After the ride, I barely got to take a pic probably because they wanted to sell theirs. Even though, after the ride, no one told me what to do with the equipment like the helmet I was wearing so it was like they didn't care about me after I... More
