Terrible customer service! Lady in front didn't told our group nothing till the very end. No politeness, bossy and expecting us to do everything. Expensive for a ride and no knowledge about discounts for military. Highly recommend not to go EVER.

We knew it would be fun, but it's admittedly pricey. We searched all over for discounts (Groupon--no current promotions, other sites--spam) and finally decided to just bite the bullet and go. Lo and behold! They have a weekday special (M-Th) of 3 races for $39....More

There are moments of fun but the workers kept slowing us down. Every few seconds, they would slow down all the cars. Everything is electric and computerized, so it's very controlled. Not very fun when you are getting slowed down or stopped all the time....More
