  • Every single one from the tour guide on down was absolutely the bomb. The guys that got him ready to go for the "ride" deserve an award. It was so hot and busy but their attitudes didn't reflect one bit of it. They couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. They arranged EMS assistance to help my husband get into the vehicle. They all paid attention and made him comfortable throughout the experience. Driver fabulous. The entire experience was fantastic. You all made an ill man's wish come true. It couldn't have been better. Thank you all!
  • Because of what you're doing, this should without a doubt be a 5-star experience. The part where my husband drove the car (doing the 8-lap package) absolutely was a 5-star moment. However, I have to say that some aspects of the overall experience brought it down to a 4-star. Please be aware going into this that there will be way more people there doing this than you'd expect. There were well over 20 (maybe even 30) on my husband's day. So that means them and all their respective family that tagged along (including children). It makes for a decent small crowd. I really thought this would be a little calmer and more personal. Some of the staff is NOT going to treat this as they should, for you having spent $500 to do this. There was a feeling of being very, very rushed to get through everything leading up to the driving experience. Yes, they have it down to a science, but to a fault. At some point it becomes overly mechanical and too rushed. My husband's experience with the driving instructor in the car was excellent, so I suppose that's truly all that really matters in the grand scheme. But man, they push, push, push the heck out of you to buy their wildly overpriced in-car video and professional photos (2) that are mounted on a placard. I want to say the video was $99 by itself, I can't remember the individual price of the placard, but together it was a "package deal" of something like $150 I believe. Outrageous! What's worse, you have to stop at the trailer on the way out (where they sell the pictures) in order to get your packet with your race stats and certificate, so there's no avoiding the attempted upsell. When we told the lady we weren't buying them, she was unbelievably rude and wouldn't say another word to us. She just handed us the packet with the biggest attitude. Wow. I'm sorry, but we spent $500 to do this. You can't even include ONE photo as part of the price? Or offer an option to buy one (or both) of the two pics a la carte with no placard? And there is NO reason why a video on a cheap thumb drive should cost $99. Let me bring my own thumb drive and charge me $20. Done. It was a heck of an experience for my husband, and the drive was worth every penny. So in that respect I highly recommend it. But the rest of the crappy sales stuff and poor customer service that goes with it? That could use some work.
  • The drive was a good experience so I give it a star. They print off a picture and record the event... It could be ours for 75. What a joke. They would be more profitable to not prove gouge. Plus they would get advertisement when we talk about it with friends. The price for a picture and $1 flash drive just left a salty taste. Hopefully they learn and change
  • I was there for the 400 last Summer 2015, recieved Jr's autograph by luck! And Just today completed the Rookie Experience for the Richard Petty Driving Experience!!!! It is unbelievable and indescribable of how it feels to drive that race car around the track, something every NASCAR fan has to do at least once! The pit crew and instructors were awesome, they make it fun, and they're just as excited as I was! Gotta visit DAYTONA!!!!
  • This is a scam. Spend your money on literally ANYTHING else in Daytona Beach and you and you family/friends will have much more fun. This purchase came with a significant amount of regret.
