    “It went by in a flash, which was kind of expected. What was not expected was that they consider driving in/out to the race track part of the 3 laps included. I don't think that's fair considering the price. The video recording did not work, so even if I wanted to buy it, I couldn't. Also, there wasn't much interaction with the driver and/or crew. The driver didn't even bother to introduce himself. They really should have better customer service to make it an exciting event....but it was still fun.”
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Hi Maria, Thank you for taking the time to write in and share your experience with us, although I am very sorry to hear of any disappointments! We definitely want to exceed your expectations! True to most tracks and driving schools, infield loops and connecting strips are typically included in the experience. With the track design, there's always a lap that will end before the straightaway no matter how many laps are driven. We do hope that the laps that went by in a flash were due to the adrenaline of getting to be in an Indy Car and created an exciting experience. It sounds like technology wasn’t cooperating, adding to the frustration. We understand that it can be a tough experience when you are unable to make the most of it due to technical issues. For that, we sincerely apologize! We can appreciate wanting to at least have the option for a fun souvenir, after taking on such a thrilling experience! Although we are hopeful that your driver was focused on providing a safe experience, we agree that an introduction is appreciated at the very least. We are more than happy to pass along your feedback! We do hope we can get you out on another experience soon, and have a second chance at a first impression! Please note that we have placed $25 in your account towards your next thrilling adventure. Kind Regards, Brianna
    “This review is for the Andretti Drive Experience at Homestead Speedway, Florida. The email I received from Cloud 9 Living encouraged me to bring friends and family to the experience, so I did. I brought my 4 small children and my parents. When we arrived at the Homestead Speedway, on time, the attendant informed me that because of the rain, the experience was delayed. She told me that the wait could extend up to 7 hours, and that if I did not wait or if I was not there when the experience started, I would lose my voucher. I pointed at my 4 small children and told the attendant that I could not possibly wait for 7 hours with 4 small children, especially when there is no waiting area, no seating, and no water. She replied, "Those are the rules." There was no waiting area, no seating at all, no water, no snacks offered (not even vending machines), and dirty restrooms. Waiting customers were seated on the track's concrete barrier, or just standing up (I took pictures). The staff was unfriendly and uninformed. After waiting for 2 hours, without any updates, they finally started moving customers to an area by the racetrack, like moving cattle. When it was my time to do the experience, the driver did not even look at me, much less greeted me or introduce himself. They really need to invest in a tent and folding chairs, and proper training for their unfriendly staff. I would discourage anyone to book this experience.”
    “ "INDY CAR RIDE ALONG" AT HOMESTEAD , FL. A GREAT PROFESSIONAL STAFF EXPLAINED EVERYTHING PERFECTLY. THE G FORCE WAS AWESOME. I WAS IMPRESSED WITH THE TIRES BEING ABLE TO ADHERE TO THE SURFACE WHEN BEYOND THE FIRST FLAT TURN AT FULL THROTTLE PRIOR TO BEING ON THE TRACK. EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT. ”
