The process to get in gear and wait for your ride were simple and not too long. The driver was friendly and talkative. Taking your picture thought the window with a back brace on made for a hilariously grimaced look, well worth the price for the photos and video. Tearing around the track at incredible speeds for a few laps... More

I am a NASCAR fan and always wondered what it would be like to be in a race. Now I have some idea of how it must be in a race.

My husband did the "Kings" package which gave him 16 laps self driving....he loved it!! It was for his 40th b-day! The photo & CD vid were perfect souveniors to bring home. I participated in the 'ride along' at up to 180 miles an hour! It was thrilling to say the least! a Great fanasty!!

Two choices, take a class by appointment & you drive or just show up & get a ride. I took the ride & it was awesome. A real honest to goodness thrill. Four fun filled laps. If you driver you go fast. If you just go for the ride it's a lot faster.

I purchased this for my partners birthday well before we travelled and he was really looking forward to it. On arrival for the 9.30 session he was given his... More

I did the Kings experience and it was an absolute blast. The only problem is it cost $53 for a taxi each way. I could've rented a car for half that. There is a shuttle bus available for the ride along, and rookie experience drivers. If you buy the more expensive packages the shuttle is not available. Minor glich that... More

Hubby's second time doing the experience at Las Vegas and he was so much more relaxed this time so he could really take it all in. Instructors are so professional and helpful with any question. This really is an experience to remember. Thumbs up to all the staff.
