What should I expect during my visit?

To start playing, scan the QR code on your wristband in any of our kiosks located in front of each game to join the lines. You are only allowed to scan into one game at a time. Please do not touch the equipment yourselves, our staff will teach you how to play and help you in and out of each experience. Should you need help during play, please raise your hand. We recommend due to the motion of car racing that you do that experience towards the middle to last of your time here. Don’t forget to grab a drink at the bar and enjoy!

Expect wait times between experiences, especially on the weekends. If you purchased a 2-hour pass, a ticket upgrade is available the day of your visit to the All-Day pass allowing you unlimited playtime.
