My 18 year old son had a blast!!! Too bad the McClaren was an additional $25 per lap (Minimum 4 laps). Best Groupon I ever purchased. Insurance costs an extra $45 unless your auto policy includes off road and other relevant issues to driving these cars. The guys who run the company and drive in the car are nice and accommodating. I highly recommend this adventure but only by purchasing on Groupon.

DON'T THROW YOUR MONEY AWAY -- POSSIBLE SCAM? My wife purchased the 8 lap package on groupon as we were expecting twins and she thought it would make a nice gift for me after they were born. Made a reservation for a specific date and time under the impression that this meant that when you get there you would be able to drive a car in a reasonable amount of time (they tell you to get there 15 minutes early I believe). Boy was I wrong. When I came there was a huge line of people who were visibly frustrated from waiting multiple hours for their turn to ride (I found this out after speaking to multiple others who had reservations for a few hours before mine). When asked how long the wait would be for me, they told me 30 minutes. This was in front of others in line who had already been waiting there for multiple hours! There was heavy rain in the forecast (they will run the event rain or shine), but there was absolutely no accommodation for anyone waiting for their turn except for a few plastic chairs set out... in the rain. People were crowding around any cover they could scrounge for hours. After waiting some time in the rain with no sign of me being able to drive in the next hour or two, I asked the staff if it would be possible to reschedule. They laughed and said that this was the last event of the season, so I would have to wait next year and there was no guarantee it wouldn't rain then. It would also cost $50 (this is on top of the $40 insurance fee most people pay). Unfortunately I had no choice but to leave before I was able to drive as I had to return to help my wife with the twins before it got too late -- we were not expecting this to be a whole day wait. I was extremely disappointed by the way the event organizers handled this event. From the sound of the staff, this is how they run all of their events. I went to groupon for a refund as I felt that this service was misrepresented, but groupon said that this voucher was marked as "redeemed" even though I didn't get to drive. I was told to contact the vendor for a refund. The vendor refused because I "attended" the event and said that the wait time was extremely uncommon which reminded me of the staff at the event who told me that the wait was 30 minutes while everyone around me had been there for hours. So at the end of the day, I'm out a few hundred dollars, and have nothing to show for it except for waiting in the rain for a car I couldn't drive. What a scam. Find another vendor if you want to drive fancy cars.

On our scheduled driving day, it was raining hard so we tried to call them ahead of time to reschedule but no response. Showed up to a long line of people who had to stand in a downpour for hours to drive a car at <10mph. We were charged a previously undisclosed insurance fee, and told that we needed to wait for a minimum of 2 hours to drive a car. We decided to leave drenched without driving and my Groupon is marked as redeemed. We were told we'd also need to pay another hidden fee of 50 dollars to reschedule. This was essentially a scam experience and I would recommend spending your money elsewhere.

The experience would have been good if not two things: -they rush you all the way (especially the photographer! So rude!) -they charge more for some cars (upgrade $25/lap) It’s a very brief experience for the value but my bf liked it (it was a gift) Honestly, the regular price is ridiculous With groupon it’s ok Don’t take more than 4 laps They don’t allow passengers, bummer

Bought on Groupon for 3 men and a teen. Disappointment that when they got there they had to pay 40$ each for insurance which I feel should have been mentioned prior to purchasing. Also expected to be on racetrack instead of a parking lot with only one straight to open car up on lap.

Was an awesome experience for my son to do the ride along in 2 different cars. The only issue was the date being changed to Friday, a school day, and the time between the two rides, because he was rushing to school thereafter. The crew was amazing, positive, and helpful, and the drivers were amazing! Would def recommend this experience, as it will last a lifetime.
