“Really!”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

There were a total of 8 adults and 3 kids in our party. The sign outside reads 19.99 all u can ride pass.. we all thought what a great deal. We walk in to find out that if you are not riding the Go Karts. You have to pay 7 dollars (for Mini Golf) or 8 dollars just to watch the others in your party to ride Go Karts?? I had my Parents (in there 60's) with me and they just wanted to watch their Grand Kids and my brother had to watch his 18 moth old daughter. So we turned around and they lost out on 120 bucks. What sense does it make to offer family fun and charge people to just watch?? Poor Business decision.

Hello and thank you for providing feedback regarding your recent visit to NASCAR SpeedPark. We're sorry you found the admission price of $19.99 to be pricey for your family. Our admission covers all day, unlimited access to 25 family attractions including 8 go-kart tracks, a rock climbing wall, 11 family and thrill rides, 2 mini golf courses and more. Very similar to other market attractions like Wonderworks and Dollywood, we charge admission for all guests entering the park. We understand that you would prefer to watch your family ride, and part of our goal in lowering the price to $19.99 for all guests was to ensure that every member of the family came into the park with the ability to participate in the family-fun activities in the park, to create treasured memories together. Again, we're sorry you were unhappy with the pricing and hope you were able to enjoy the rest of your visit to the Smokies! Thank you again for your review.

“Despite the negative reviews, we had a blast!”
Reviewed November 3, 2013 via mobile

I feel bad that there are so any negative reviews about this place. I was a little hesitant at first, but we took the risk, and oh what a reward. I felt good upon entering hearing positive, Christian music over the loudspeakers. Because of the time of year and it was a Saturday, just about every ride was working but the lines were relatively short, the tracks were decent, a lot of things for the kids to do, and grown ups had fun too. The crew was ok (mostly teenagers acting like teenagers) but they added a little amusement to the attraction. $100 for a family of five, all day entertainment.... Can't be beat.

“We had a blast and plan on returning”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

We decided to try this place because my daughter wanted to do go-karts and putt putt while on her birthday trip to the Great Smoky Mountains. We paid right at $20 each for the day pass which allowed us unlimited everything. We could come and go through out the day if we wished. Our 7 and 9 year old were able to drive several of the cars on their own. There are SEVERAL tracks that accomodate very young all the way to the "top" track which requires a helmet and drivers license! I would agree that the ride area needs more staff. A couple of the rides were not operating when we visited, so that was disappointing. The golf was not impressive, but the kids enjoyed one game. I was impressed at the amount of time you were able to drive. It seemed like we were waiting in line a while...even though it was a short line. However, it's tough to complain about that when you are getting a lot of time to drive! We will definitely be back and will probably double check the website for prices on the year pass. Looks like a good deal if you visit the area often.

Hello and thanks for providing a review of your visit to NASCAR SpeedPark Smoky Mountains! With 8 go-kart tracks, it's a great option for kids of almost any age, and gets them behind the wheel of their very own karts! We're glad your children were able to bring back some great memories, and please do consider a season pass when you return next year, great idea! They include perks like discounted food and merchandise on every visit, and even discounts on bring-a-friend admission. Can't beat the value! Thanks again for the feedback and we look forward to seeing you soon!

“Fantastic value”
Reviewed October 26, 2013 via mobile

For the amount & types of activities available here the price is shocking low. There was something for everyone here and we all had fun. My reasons for giving 4 stars instead of 5 is the putt-putt golf was nothing to write home about and they don't staff the kiddie ride areas well (1 person operating 4 or 5 rides). But we had a great time and would do it again.

“First Tickets We Purchase”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

There is a little bit for everyone in the family at this great little gem. We have gone to this attraction on our last two visits to the area, and the most recent we bought the pass that allows unlimited visits for a week. This was the best idea we have had in a long time. In a week long vacation we went 5 times and had a variety of ages in our group from 60+ down to a 7 year old and everyone enjoyed the time spent!
