My husband LOVED this experience, as did I and we are so sad to hear of its closing. Hoping Disney will reconsider. more »
I have done this three times and every time it's an incredibly great experience. First two times was with an instructor in the passenger seat of the car. Third time was last week and I drove on my own, with a spotter giving instructions over a two-way radio. All I can say is that it's the most incredible few minutes of sheer terror and fun. I did go faster with the instructor (165 mph) than on my own, where the car was rev-limited to 5,000 rpm and 150 mph. If you are not a confident driver, they will rev-limit your car to less than 5,000 rpm, resulting in a slower speed. I also see complaints about the high cost of photos and videos. Yes, they are costly, but you don't have to buy them. I've gotten great pictures and videos from friends that accompanied me. All of the staff are super friendly and helpful. Easy access off of I-95 and plenty of parking, which is always free.
Yeah! This was a bucket-list item for me and my wife. Expensive, but a once-in-a-lifetime experience. It was over way too quickly, almost no time to process it, but the memory lives on. Everything happened so fast, we walked up, put on our helmets and got in the car, then 3 laps and it was over, but it certainly was thrilling. I would recommend staying away from the expensive video package they try to add on. It's just not worth what they are charging. We got it, but you can see the same thing on a race day on tv with the exception of seeing yourself sitting in the car. If it was a quarter of the price, maybe it would be okay, but that would still be pretty high. And they want $25 for one picture. No, thanks.
