As a birthday gift to my husband i purchased a groupon deal for a 3 lap ride in a Ferrari since his passion is exotic cars. Gotham dream cars offers a sprint experience( which i got) and another package called dream tour which is upward of $800 dollars.
When we got to the location the Gotham folks were well organized.I had registered already on line which you have the option of doing and my wait time was minimal.
They had set up a track in the parking lot of a stadium.Granted it's not a true race track , but it was exciting nevertherless to see these beautiful lamborghini's and Ferrari's(F430) showing off their flashy colors.
An instructor gets in with you, it is a very safe environment controlled by them .You get a quick lesson of your car and then a slow warm up lap. lap 2, 3 and 4 you get to really try out the power of these cars and it's a short lived adrenaline rush. It is yoru choice how fast you go!
The Ferrari was a bit older and looked worn out inside which should never happen to a beautiful car as this.
the lamborghini was a 2010 and engine felt much newer.
The groupon was only for 1 car , but at the event my husband was able to add on the second car for only $75 which was a bargain.
The whole drive experience may have only lasted 8 minutes or so , but it was exciting and great fun while it lasted.To say you have at least driven these cars is bragging rights.
The package comes with free pictures ( about 25 pics on a disc) and for $25 per car you can get your particular drive on video too which is not bad and a memory to have.
The instructors are informative, friendly and do let you step on the gas when the time comes.
Everyone keeps safety in mind, helmuts and protective shower cap for helmuts are given for hygiene.
you will haveto produce you licence, and car insurance. Our particular experience, there were no long lines and you got to drive very quickly after check in . The crew is efficient and know what they are doing.Thank you Gotham dream cars for putting on these fun events in many cities around the country.
For a car lover this is an ultimate dream and this should be done at least once in your life , if you dont want to rent them for thousands of dollars.
The groupon price was $99 ( with pictures included) but i think the regular price to drive one car is upward of $230 so it is pricey and best wait for a deal.
