Fall, 2011 (September)
it was a sunday afternoon and a couple of friends decided to rent a car and drop by charlotte for the day. it rained heavily, and by the time we got to charlotte, it was 3pm - which left us with almost no time to do anything since most of charlotte's attractions closed at 5pm on sundays.
Nascar Hall of Fame came in tops on the list as it closed at 6pm, which left us with a good 3 hours to tour the entire area and participate in all the activities there were! For a party of 4, they had a package which included 4 entrance tickets, 4 simulator rides, and a choice of either 4 lanyards or 4 meal vouchers for only $99.80.
the pitstop cafe in the NASCAR hall of fame was a small one, but you are able to redeem your meal voucher for a choice of either a BBQ burger, hot dog or sausage, with chips and a drink thrown in! a good deal if i must say so.
the entire NASCAR hall of fame had plenty for everyone, there were previously driven cars on showcase, medals and trophies, racing suits, videos recordings and other memoirs of some of the best NASCAR racers in the world! I went in knowing nothing about NASCAR racing, and came out feeling a deep appreciation for the passion that these NACAR racers have!
activities are a plenty for all - you would get a plastic hard card in which you would be able to complete certain stations, participate in quizzes and even interact with the actual car parts to collect points which would eventually add up. the main highlight is definitely the simulator card ride. for those who do not purchase the package, it is $5 for the simulator ride, or $14 for unlimited rides. (: at the end of the race, you would get a certificate for all your achievements!
definitely a place worth dropping by for families. an educational trip indeed.
