Not sure of the seat movements being that realistic but still great fun with it switched off and good feel through steering wheel makes it fun. Definitely need an hours session minimum and... More

Great place to have a bit of fun with the boys. A little pricey if you're not a member but a lot of fun. Would definitely recommend as a getaway from the kids or something to do on a wet day.

I came here with my girlfriend on the last day i was in Queensland. Other then the expensive nature for just 15 minutes $50 for two people and for $15 or your relevant price point. Not only did the person serving not know what game the simulators were running. He was also rude to my girlfriend and blatantly criticized her... More

Hi Matthew, Sorry to hear your experience was not what you expected. It sounds like you choose only the 15 minute introduction session. 15 minutes does not allow you or your partner enough time to really get used to the simulators. We always recommend an hour as it takes the first half hour to get used to the simulator and... More

Whilst visiting the Gold coast last month a Friend and myself found Racecentre on Orchid ave. We decided to do some racing. After a helpful introduction to using the simulators by friendly staff we had a race around Bathurst complete with practice, qualifying and then a 10 lap race. I was impressed with the whole setup, driving the simulator is... More
