“Party Experience”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

This is a different and exciting experience. Absolutely ideal for both young and old. Cars only have stop and go pedals making it easy for the non drivers amongst us.

Nice cafe on site with all sorts of goodies for the party.

“You won't regret a visit!!”
Reviewed 9 November 2013 via mobile

Right folks, if your looking for a multi person sim experience look no further.

As soon as you walk through the floors the staff are friendly & helpful, the sign in process is straight forward & then the safety briefing is well presented & insightful.

The sims rigs are simply brilliant, we'll maintained & well presented. With the three screens & the part f1 chassis you sit in gives you the full immersion feel.

For those who worry about this. The sim game that was used on my visit was rfactor & the choice of mods & tracks is great & staff are very knowledgeable.

On the whole I strongly recommend a visit, whether your a seasoned sim racer, just starting out or have no experience with sim racing what so ever.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

Ten of us visited for our first Formula One experience. I'd read the reveiws already in print and was slightly concerned as to how we would get on. No worries, The staff were excellent, took time to present a full and professional briefing. Even spent 20 odd minutes talking in one of our lost players. Staff must be fairly new as the negative reveiws bore no resemblance to what we experienced. The only comment I would make is that the screens are not quite as sharp as I would have liked. I wouldn't have noticed but having tried the car in the foyer was made aware of the difference during the break. Excellent time and thanks to Matt and our human Sat Nav guy whose name I don't have. Well done guys. We'll be back

“Great fun”
Reviewed 23 October 2013 via mobile

We went with 8 people and all found it really fun. I do think the price is slightly steep for 2, 15 minute sessions. Maybe 2 half hour sessions would be more like it. I found the whole experience brilliant. Will defiantly be going again.

Thank you so much for taking the time to give us a review. We are glad you enjoyed your experience and we hope you choose to come again. I saw you mentioned the price and we totally agree. Over the past few months we have been working to totally change the way we run the sessions and the cost has become dynamic in order to make the experience more accessible and affordable. We launched this new system last week and it is now possible to get sessions for as little as £20 and when booking 3 months in advance an extra £5 off is possible. This is possible through a full review if our peak and off peak timings, which now include off peak times at weekends.

Trip advisor is an important way for us to see feedback and we are actively working to make changes from the reviews we get. Pricing has been a big part of a feedback and we hope our hardwork here will make this less of an issue from now on. Thank you again for taking the time to let us know your thoughts, hopefully see you again in the near future.

“A great way to spend a Friday.”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

An excellent, immersive experience. Great fun and not too expensive when compared with go-karting. A friend & I opted for the Chase Chilton sessions and had a blast, we managed to get around 40 minutes of track time. The staff were incredibly knowledgable, friendly and fresh faced despite it being 21:30 on a Friday! The simulators are a real shock to the system.

Being hypercritical the graphics aren't the best but you are far too absorbed in getting things right to ever really notice!
