Richard Petty Driving Experience now offers Junior Ride-Alongs at the Walt Disney World Speedway in Orlando, FL. The Junior Ride-Alongs program allows children ages 6-13 years old and at least 48 inches tall the opportunity to experience real-life racing in a specially equipped two-seat NASCAR race car. The children ride shotgun with a professional driving instructor for three thrilling laps on the Walt Disney World Speedway.
My boys had the opportunity to experience the Richard Petty Driving Experience Junior Ride-Alongs. I was so excited for them! We made the drive to Orlando and found our way to the Disney Speedway where parking is free.
Before the ride-along, we got to tour the garages and see some of the expensive, fancy cars.
My boys loved the expensive cars, which by the way you can pay to drive on the race track too! Now on to the race cars!
Happy, happy boys! They loved their three laps in the race car and wanted to go again. My boys each received a souvenir photo and a ride-along experience video. Check out their videos below!
Wahoo!! The Junior Ride-Alongs cost $59-$69 plus tax (price varies by track). The Junior Ride-Along program generally is offered between 9am to 4pm on days they are on track, on a first come, first serve basis.
My boys had so much fun and can't wait until they are old enough to drive a race car on their own. Fortunately, I have some years before that happens.
