Hold on as your dragster soars off the start line!

This is a speed thrill like nothing else - race in a full-sized dragster, going from 0 to 100 mph in seconds.

No racing experience is required to drive a dragster!

Your drag racing experience starts with safety instruction, track orientation and a demonstration run. Then you’ll get suited up in fireproof drag racing attire and belted into the powerful dragster.

Each run begins with a long, smoky burnout followed by a full-throttle powerful launch off the starting line. 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 where you can reach speeds up to 130mph. You’ll be gripping the butterfly wheel with white knuckles every time!
