Overall very good experience. Queuing tracking waiting to get into cars could be better managed. People jumping their turn in line.

If there had been one more tent to stand under instead of standing in the sun while waiting in line, it would have been much better. Had to wait over an hour. The lady that helped me in and out of the car was fabulous. Very personal and interested in the customers.
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
Hello Jerrie, We are happy to hear that you had some highs while at the track! I'm so sorry to hear that you had to wait so long in the Atlanta Summer sun! ! It's unfortunate that you didn't have adequate shade coverage while you were waiting in line, and for that we apologize! However, it does make us quite happy to hear that your experience was turned around when you were able to get into the NASCAR! We love hearing that our experience providers gave you phenomenal customer service, and helped make your day more special as a whole! Hopefully being able to feel 600 horsepower underneath you created a memory you will not soon forget! Kind Regards, Michael
Great experience! Will definitely buy more laps next time.
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
