It was thrilling and exciting and I loved the experience.
Great experience!
Yes. We arrived at 9 for the 9 an ride along. This was to be a Father’s Day gift for my hubby. Emmy husband is aired in line for 1 and a half hours, while I was with out one year old in the 100 degree heat. My husband was next up and the Indy car in front of him - the engine apparently caught fire while the guy in front of him was driving it. They closed down the track. They kept telling my husband it would be ten minutes more, etc, and finally at 12 pm my husband said that they were able to reach corporate and corporate is supposed to call us to reschedule. It is just ridiculous that we had to wait 3 hours in 100 degree wether with direct sunlight with a 1 year old. Horrible experience. We also had a difficult time finding the entrance.
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
Hello Jamie, Thank you for taking the time to reach out and share your experience. I am very sorry to hear that your Father's Day did not go to plan as I realize this was a very thoughtful gift you had planned for your husband. I can understand that waiting in the heat with a young child is not ideal while your experience was delayed. It appears a complete unforeseen circumstance occurred prior to your husband being able to get on the track himself. I do know our partners want to ensure your safety at all times and do not wish to delay your experience by any means unless absolutely necessary. I am happy to hear that our partner was able to reach out to you directly, and offer you a reschedule at any of their tracks and I hope you are able to find another time to get your husband on the track for this experience. We would love to make up for this unpleasant experience by getting your husband out for the ride of his life! Regards, Brooke
Very fun but wish it could have been longer. Maybe have more drivers so that there is less of a wait.
