    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Hello, Scott! Wow, back atcha! We hope that you loved your Indy Car Ride Along Experience.  Cheers,  Kasia
    Lets start off with the cons and they were minor ones. Signage could have been better once at the track. Wasn't easy to find where you had to go. Getting ready could have been a little better organized. For the experience itself: it was flippin' awesome. I am not really a race fan but grew up watching F1 races with my dad. Being at the track and seeing/hearing the cars go around and then actually getting in one and experience going around the track was such a rush. I think we hit top speeds between 170 - 175MPH. I did the 6 lap ride, and I highly recommend the 6 laps instead of the 3 laps. I would think 3 laps would be too short. I would also spend a little extra money and get the video. It has two cameras, 1 on you and 1 on your POV. It's a great thing to have to relive what you just experience. I would do this experience all over again. Highly recommend it.
    Best thing that I've ever done.
    It was very thrilling and exciting!! The process was well set up and went along fast. Very organized! Definitely recommend!
    Everyone was very friendly and helpful. My ride was amazing!
    great experience.
    I was very happy with the Indy Car Ride Along in Dallas. The price was very fair for this experience. I appreciated having many experiences to choose from on your sight. If you can get the Indianapolis Motor Speedway to do this experience I will do this again!!
    For an "Indy Car" only 144 mph was a little slow. I was expecting a faster ride.
    The experience was poorly organized in my opinion. Everything had to go through your merchandise trailer. The signage there was appropriate, but purchasing of merchandise was clearly a priority over registration. All i was told was go sit over in the tent and wait for an announcement. We were told to be there a hour early, so to get there an hour early just to sit in a tent for an hour is not well organized. Plus, the experience was just a mass of confusion. No one could answer simple questions like, Is there a line to get in? Where do i get my driving suit? Where do i get a helmet? Who do i talk to to get suited up for the ride/drive? Is here a different line for Indy vs stock car driving and equipment? In addition, after you figure all this out on your own, there is no clear position or line up for those who are looking to enter the vehicle. Th staff handles the entrance and exit from the vehicles well, but you really have to elbow our way up to the wall because there is no signage or person queuing up people for the activity. People are moving in all directions trying to figure out what to do. Every few minutes one staffer would bring up 3 or 4 people to the wall and have them go right into cars. The rest of us would look around and shrug our shoulders as to what was happening. The registration and the merchandising should be separate to improve the registration for the customer. The experience itself needs to have much improved administration.
    Enjoyed it and my grandkids and Greatgrand as well plus my kids were well pleased with the way it went
