Customer Reviews

This experience has a customer rating of 5
based on 6 reviews.
It advertised three laps around the track and that is what occurred. I had anticipated three laps at a fast speed, but there were only two after a 1/2 lap build up to speed and 1/2 lap slowing down
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
Hello Ken, Thank you for sharing your review with us. I totally understand wanting to go pedal to the medal for all 3 laps but your safety is our partners number one concern. I can't even imagine the adrenaline rush you must have felt zipping around the track at 160 MPH. I'm glad you found us and hope we have the opportunity to get you out on another adventure with us. Thanks, Ryan
I didn't know what to expected, I found out that its very noisy and a lot of vibration in the Nascar, but didn't mine that at all. All your employees including at the check-in, the girl who help me with the helmet. and especially the men helping me to get in and out of the car, all together it was very good experience for this 96-year-old. And maybe some of my family will want to do at it another time. thanks for the chance for the travel at 160 mph,
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
Hey Edwin! Isn't it quite the thrill? Certainly can be a bit of a jolt to your senses at first. Glad you were able to get out on the track and experience such a wild ride! We are so happy we got to play a part in that journey. Thanks for leaving a lovely review! Best, Jake.
Ride was great - just over too fast!
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
Hi Connie, I could not have said it better myself! Although this amazing experience can feel like it goes by so fast, I am sure the memories on the track will stay with you forever. Let us know when you are ready for another exciting adventure!  Kind Regards, Brianna 
The wait was long. They had a hard time finding our reservation that we had completed online. It wait worth the wait! They allowed us to transfer the ticket to our son and he hasn't stopped talking about it yet. The staff was friendly and helpful!
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
Hello, Michael! We LOVE that your son enjoyed his NASCAR Ride Along, although we are sorry to hear of any hiccups upon arrival! We are always happy to make improvements and will be sure to pass your feedback along.  Cheers,  Kasia 
I loved it and would definitely do it again. It was awesome! The people there were very nice!
