Hang on tight as you roar off the start line!

Have you ever dreamed of driving 130mph in a 10 second ¼ mile! This is your chance! Feel the awesome power of the engine behind you and the G-force from the 800+ horse power dragster as it soars down the strip!

No racing experience is required!

After track orientation, safety instruction and demonstation run, you will get suited up in your fireproof driver's suit and buckled into the dragster.

Push the pedal to the floor and hang on for a long, smoky burnout followed by a full-throttle launch off the starting line. In just seconds you’ll reach speeds over 100 mph. Feel the adrenaline rush as the incredible acceleration pins you back against your seat.

Each run includes a heart-pounding launch off the starting line with an electrifying burn-out. You’ll be hanging onto the butterfly wheel with white knuckles! All runs are done incrementally with your first pass going to the 330ft mark, the second to the 1/8 mile and your third covering the full ¼ mile reaching speeds up to 130mph.
