Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I attended the Ride& Skid it Speedway experience today. All three instructors Aiden Collins ,Les Collins and Adam Allott are brilliant with riders of all abilities there knowledge is vast. It is a fun day and you learn a lot about the correct way to ride Speedway and I would highly recommend trying it to anyone.

Advertised as Monster trucks but there were only 2. Very poor value for £20 each. Wouldn’t take young children & definitely won’t go again.

Hello thanks for letting us know, sadly on this occasion we were unable to give good VFM, the weather conspired against us with heavy rain, and then the Monster Trucks had technical issues, both were out of our control somewhat. We hope you will give us another chance on another day.

Our first trip to Buxton (as we have a raceway nearer to us) but we were very impressed! Swift and efficient entry process, helpful, friendly staff, a well-organised and smooth-running event and a really good programme of racing with a variety of both children and adults behind the wheels. Always great and really impressive to see the speed and skill of the youngsters! Plus the highlight for us, bus and coach racing! We are long-time banger race-goers but have never seen buses before! What a treat it was! The destruction derby was brutal! Top-class entertainment! Shame we're 2.5 hours away, but we will definitely be back!

Really good day out with the kids watching the bangers and coach racing. 20quid an adult, but both kids 3 and 9 were free so not overly expensive.
On site food wasn't anything to write home about and the bogs had more piss on the floor than anywhere else, but thats the people goings fault not the tracks.
Plenty of on site parking and ran well.

Thanks for your review. We have staff servicing the toilets, but like you say sometimes the users are the ones that make the mess and some of them have a distinct lack of respect, pretty sure they dont do those things at home. But your first 4 words are very welcome. thankyou.
