My son and I toured the plant. I had just purchased a 2014 Corvette Stingray in March. It was amazing to go through the factory and see how each step in the completion of my car had taken place. I was able to see "inside" my car and get a much better feel for what technology and engineering goes into... More

Tickets were $7 for adults, and I'm glad we went. We purchased our tickets online ahead of time. I'm not sure if tickets would have been available if we'd waited until we got there to purchase them. Our tour was scheduled for 1 PM. We got there 1/2 early, and we were already in the 2nd group. It meant an... More

This is my second time to go in ten years and I drove from Houston, TX. We made reservations prior to leaving and found the staff most cordial in allowing us to change the time when we needed to. I don't remember walking so dang far last time I was there. The signage is very limited as to where you... More

I didn't think I would like this but went with my husband. I liked the tour of the Plant much better than the Museum. The tour guide explained a lot. I'm from Canada and was surprised at the lack of safety measures the workers had here. Most women had long hair, not tied back, no hard hats, safety eye wear.... More

I went to the plant to watch my 2014 being built and what an incredible experience it was!! Everyone was so friendly and each and every employee thanked me for purchasing a Corvette. I never realized how many hands touched one car on the assembly line, it is an amazing experience that is not to be missed!!

Was even better than expected. Well worth the money and time. Would suggest for anyone in the area to check this out. You so not need to own a corvette to enjoy this.

We bought our tickets on line for the 11.30 tour. We came 15 before that time and found approx 100 other guests waiting. The introduction film is short but clear and than the first group of about 20 people were taken in. 15 minutes later, second group, etc etc...so we ended up waiting until 12.30. But that was the only... More

This is probably the best factory tour in America. I love watching the Corvettes grow on the assembly line. Tour guides are not Corvette experts but they try hard to answer questions. It is a great experience to see America building things, especially these road rockets. 3rd trip to the plant for us since 1994. Kids will ooh and ahh... More

Don't miss a wonderful experience to see how America's sports car is built. The tour involves a walk through the plant with stops at various preplanned points for explanations by the tour guide. Our tour was conducted by a college student who could have been better informed but he did a respectable job. We booked on line but upon arrival... More
