What fun and excitement await you here. Feel like A. J. Foyt or Mario Andretti after you spend some time here. If speed and racing is your thing, you will certainly enjoy Indy Racing Experience

Me and a buddy of mine have been talking about doing this for the last few years. Glad we finally got it done this year! Absolutely thrilling. I know it is on the expensive side, but I'm sure I will remember it forever as a great experience. Our reservations were for 12:30 with instructions to arrive about 45 minutes early---we... More

My wife and did this today and what a Great Time! Getting to Drive an Indy car at the Indianapolis Speedway and then getting driven around the track by Mario Andretti !!! I could not have asked for a better day! This should be on everyone's Bucket List.

Note - This is a review of the Indy Race Experience; not of the Indy 500 race, the racetrack tour, or the Hall of Museum (there were some here misplaced) - those these are great too. In any case, on to the Fun... THE FUN: Purchased the Ultimate Ride and Drive Experience. Arrived for morning time slot at 10a. Highly... More

I have been a lifelong Indy 500 fan, but you don't have to be to enjoy this. I expected a lot, and the Indy Racing Experience exceeded them. If you are a racing fan, you'll enjoy it. If you are an open wheel fan, you'll love it. If you are an Indianapolis 500 fan, you'll be overjoyed. (The day I... More

My wife surprised me with this gift for Father's Day, and it was great. If you like speed, if you like racing history, or if you are like me and millions of others who have watched Indy on TV and dreamt of blasting down the track; this is for you!!!! The only thing cooler than being in an actual Indy... More

The most positive thing I can say about the "race" is that it's best seen on TV. Unless you know the track and exact seating potential, then just buying a ticket for this event is a waste of money. We sat in the middle of a straight-away, and saw nothing but race cars zipping in front of us at 225... More

I would classify this experience as 100 times more exciting than any roller coaster I have ever encountered. There is no way to describe the feeling of traveling at a very high rate of speed around the Indianapolis Speedway. And meeting Mario was the icing on the cake. Don't miss this experience.

One of the best presents I ever gave my daughter. The people were great and she will always remember that day.
