The host facility of Formula One United States Grand Prix and Motorcycle Grand Prix of The Americas, Circuit of The Americas invites you to witness 350 km/h (220 mph) of pure adrenaline.

  • We saw a comedy tour there. parking was quite adventurous, and took quite some time to get in and out. otherwise, seating, and facilities were fair.  more »
  • This is a shining jewel of American race tracks. It is a very large and lengthy facility. Prepare to walk a lot and take advantage of all the different vantage points offered.  more »

  • Always fun just to visit and look at everything!! I'm usually working there for Transportation Management Services but all the people I encountered from there staff was great. Very professional and nice. Watching the races and the events that I got to attend or experience were great; except the carnival rides at Winter Wonderland were way too short!! Didn't get to ride them but for a second.
  • Very nice place. Always had great time at concerts. Shuttles take u from parking lot to event. Very easy to get around. VIP area supper nice as well. Not a bad seat in the house.
  • Good place for racing events and concerts. Attendance during F1 is massive, and traffic is very heavy. During non F1 events things should be more manageable. Circuit is very modern and well equipped.
  • Holiday wonderland was fun for romantic date, entire family, or give yourself a treat. Singing trees were my favorite. The ice rink was not much fun. There was no way you could maneuver ice skates with no sharpened blades on the tips and the edges of the skates. The surface was made out of some type of acrylic, not ice. I immediately fell on my rear. Thankfully I did not get injured. Overall I had a great time at the festivities!
  • We had a fantastic time doing the Christmas at COTA event!! We were very impressed with the layout, the lights & colors, and it was very festive! There was music, rides, an improvised ice skating rink, food, drinks (the best was the Johnny Walker sample booth...thank you SO much for them!!! They kept us happy and saved us from hypothermia!), & we got to run around on the track!! :D
