Fun for the family

My husband and daughter spent half an hour racing each other around different tracks. They thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Not cheap though, but something a bit different.

Good set-up and great way to kill an hour. Feels like your in the car but a little too sensitive as compared to the real thing. All in all had some good fun racing my son but is a bit pricey compared to similar simulators back in Melbourne.

Visited with some mates and had a ball, although not a cheap experience, great fun. We raced at Bathhurst and got right into the whole experience, but beware, believe the instructor when he says if you are prone to motion sickness to turn the seat movement off, one of our group had to make a quick dash.

During our week stay at Surfers I spent two hour long sessions at race centre. I chose V8 Super Cars as my race car plus a bit of Formula 1. I have driven a V8 at Taupo as part of Freeman X. I found the Race Centre simulators far more fun. It was good to be able thrash a track... More

Wow what a brilliant and thrilling experience. Love the sensation for reality, in the seat, loose all sense of time enjoyment. A well thought out, energy packed fun time to be had here. Great owners, great simulators, very addictive. Just do it, maybe there is a little racing car driver in all of us?

Had a few hours to kill in Surfers and found myself in here chatting to the very knowledgeable guy about technology and cars. Ended up having a go - $80 for an hour, but I went for an hour and a half for that fee and he was happy for me to stay around beyond that. The simulator itself is... More

Took my husband and 15 yo son here as they are both into cars and they really enjoyed it. We booked for an hour, and the staff were so helpful.
