"This review is for the Andretti Drive Experience at Homestead Speedway, Florida. The email I received from Cloud 9 Living encouraged me to bring friends and family to the experience, so I did. I brought my 4 small children and my parents. When we arrived at the Homestead Speedway, on time, the attendant informed me that because of the rain, the experience was delayed. She told me that the wait could extend up to 7 hours, and that if I did not wait or if I was not there when the experience started, I would lose my voucher. I pointed at my 4 small children and told the attendant that I could not possibly wait for 7 hours with 4 small children, especially when there is no waiting area, no seating, and no water. She replied, "Those are the rules." There was no waiting area, no seating at all, no water, no snacks offered (not even vending machines), and dirty restrooms. Waiting customers were seated on the track's concrete barrier, or just standing up (I took pictures). The staff was unfriendly and uninformed. After waiting for 2 hours, without any updates, they finally started moving customers to an area by the racetrack, like moving cattle. When it was my time to do the experience, the driver did not even look at me, much less greeted me or introduce himself. They really need to invest in a tent and folding chairs, and proper training for their unfriendly staff. I would discourage anyone to book this experience."
