Do you feel the need for SPEED!

Your experience begins with a safety procedure session, track orientation and a demonstration run. You’ll be issued the necessary safety equipment and get suited up. You’ll climb into the dragster and your instructors will make sure are strapped in tight. Then it’s time to take off!

With the pedal to the floor, you’ll feel the astonishing force as you are launched down the quarter mile track at lightning speeds of up to 130mph. You’ll be pinned back against your seat! This experience gift packs more adrenaline-pumping car racing fun into ten seconds than most people will experience in a lifetime!

No previous drag racing experience is required!

All runs are done incrementally with your first pass to the 330ft mark, the second to the 1/8 mile and your third covering the full 1/4 mile. You’ll be gripping the butterfly wheel with white knuckles every time.
