    Great Fun! Could have lasted longer, though. Instructor was FANTASTIC. Car was very good, but felt it was being put through a grueling day. Wouldn't buy it as a "pre-owned" vehicle. Safety from the staff was of UTMOST CONCERN - very attentive and polite. Want to do it again,but would have to buy 3 rides in succession.
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Hello, Frank- Great review! We understand how time flies when you are having fun! So happy to hear of your fantastic instructor, and that you enjoyed the car (it's quite popular like you mentioned!). Cheers to great FUN for a GREAT CUSTOMER! Kasia
    It was fun!
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    We love it! Cheers!
    From the initial contact through the last handshake with my driving coach at the racing experience, Cloud 9 Living has been a pleasure and a thrill. The Ferrari 458 Italia was pristine and the welcome, instruction and drive could not have been more professionally done... This was truly a bucket list experience!
    Excellent experience! Staff and drivers were friendly and knowledgeable. Looking forward to next year!
    My video footage was “lost”. 6 laps and not one second filmed or a picture.
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Thank you for writing in! Our sincerest apologies for the disappointment, as we completely understand wanting a keepsake from such an incredible experience! I contacted the driving school on your behalf to see if there is anything that could be done to get that keepsake for you! They offered to either refund your purchase of the video if you did make a purchase, or provide the opportunity for a future racing experience at a discount for you, regardless! For a photo keepsake, you can digitally download your professionally photographed photo from the experience online. You are able to go to Xtreme's website  and click on "Media" in the top right corner, then on "Event Photos." The website will then prompt you to click on your respective course and date  then your car, and your photo will be available at no cost for download. Xtreme Experience asked that you contact them directly at 866-273-7727, as they would be more than happy to assist! I personally spoke with Andie.
    I thought it was an awesome experience and I love the video I bought of my drive, that was priced good!
