If you are a racing fan you need to do this. We've been talking about trying the ride a long experience for a few years now but we only seem to make it to the track during races and so Vegas seemed the perfect opportunity as it is available during January and there are many other attractions in the area....

OUr Vegas trip was my husbands 70 bday celebration. Driving an Indy car was a gift. He's a big car buff and loves racing. So this was right up his alley. He loved it all. Quite the thrill, exciting but far from cheap. It was 700 for 8 laps which took very little time at 130 mph. But he'd highly... More

My husband has a blast doing this. Booked it as an early Christmas gift and he just loved it. Getting to go to higher speeds on a track. You can either drive a car with an instructor in the passenger seat or go for a ride along or do both. It was cool to watch. My husband got 8 laps... More

This was a ride along in a real NASCAR race car driven by a professional driver offered by the Richard Petty Driving Experience. The Las Vegas race track offers a great opportunity to experience what the NASCAR drivers experience. The 3 laps at about 165 mph was very thrilling to say the least! If you have never been that fast... More

As James G says below, if you're not used to driving fast cars, this is probably awesome. However, if you've had any track experience or want a genuine thrill I'd look elsewhere as I found the drive to be completely (though perhaps predictably) handicapped by the 'instructors'. They tell you the cars have 'over 600 horsepower'. Well, that may be,... More

My husband loves formula one etc so this was an ideal day out for him (I loved watching him too!). He booked for the 'Kings Exoerience' which wood give him 16 laps round Daytona. Unfortunately there was a mix up with the booking but they managed to fit us in later in the day with another party. The instructor sat... More

The driving experience was not the thrill I had hoped. You are not permitted to drive as fast as you can, but must adhere to their pre-determined acceleration, deceleration and corner entry/exit lines. My top speed was 144mph, which is quick sure, but the car is capable of much more. I was clearly capable of much more too, as I... More

My brother and I took our dad to do this for his 65th birthday and it was great fun. We did eight laps and I was concerned we would want to do more at the end but in reality it was probably the perfect amount as I was definitely feeling the burn after only eight laps! The cars are fast... More

My son was not sure if he was going to like the ride-a-long or not. When he got out of the car he said it was a BLAST. He was also in the same car I had for my birthday in January. The F-18's were flying by so it was fun all around. I also liked that it came with... More
