Every time we visit Vegas, I try to find different experiences in what Vegas has to offer other than the regular Vegas tourist attractions and a Groupon offer provided that opportunity for something different and purchased one for my partner after checking out the website to find out what this drifting experience was about. For the 30 minute drifting experience, you ride tandem in the passenger seat with a 'drift' instructor providing the drifting techniques and tips for about 10 min.s and then you switch positions with the rest of time you drive and apply the drifting techniques with the instructor offering constructive comments. If you ever wanted to push your driving skills than this is where you can do it in a safe and instructional mode.
The course is located at the very end of dead end of the road and end of the building where the Fast Track go-karting is located. It wasn't until we drove to the end of the road that we found UDrift in the open lot when our GPS failed to pinpoint the address. Don't plan to be anywhere else if you have to be on time somewhere else as we did the first night and had to leave before our driving turn came up and returned the next night (to use the groupon before it expired). The first night the drifting course had to use an adjacent lot to be closer to water source to manually water down the drifting track when their water trailer broke. On the second visit, we were back to their regular drifting track and the water trailer working to keep the track 'slick'.
It's first come, first turn to drive starting from the time they open. We already had 5 others ahead of us when we arrived the next day at 5:30 PM (posted opening hr.), but didn't really get started with the fist driver til about 6:00 PM and by the time for my partner's turn, it was getting to be dusk. The Pros took to the track first and showed off what precision drifting can do. Plan for Vegas temperatures as there is no building and A/C to keep you cool while you waited your turn and no restroom facilities and shifting shade areas. Water and other beverages are provided to keep you hydrated in the Vegas heat. Nighttime drifting might be a better choice in Summer and get an extra benefit of seeing the lights of the The Strip from the track.
You can drive your own car, but probably is best to learn the technique on one of their cars. If you have your own helmet, you might want to bring it or a dew rag/scarf, otherwise you will be wearing one of their provided helmets. My only complaint about the experience would be that you learn the drifting technique driving in the same counterclockwise direction on the track.
