Overview

Does your young one have a keen interest in cars? They’ll love the chance to get behind the safe wheel of a Firefly – a specially designed two seater electric car. After an initial introduction and briefing, they’ll take the wheel of the Firefly, which handles just like a real car but features an automatic braking system to avoid collision and a remote control to stop the car from up to 120 metres away. With the option of a parent or sibling passenger to join in on the fun, they’ll manoeuvre around on a simulated road system which includes junctions and roundabouts. Your little petrol head will have the drive of their life!

Disappointed
21 October 2020
The firefly experience was just not brilliant at all. We had a very excited 8 year old booked for his first ‘driving lesson’ and was so disappointed when we arrived to see what he would be driving and where. The car park was unkept and over grown. Very little instruction from the people who worked there and the cars were nothing bigger than what he had when I was 5 for trips around the park. Tiny little circuit laid out with cones. I would suggest this would be ok for 4-6 years but definitely not 8+. Such a shame. We had tears on the way home.

1. Not long enough - only 15mins in the car. 2. Battery in the car was flat after 8 minutes, so we had a delay of 5mins whilst waiting for the battery to be swapped over. 3. Not allowed to film whilst the child is driving (I’m a single parent and came with my son alone). I had to be in the car with him and wanted to take a short clip of him driving the car. I was told to put my phone away even though another parent in a car with their child was filming for a good few minutes. Coming on my own with my child meant that we had no one to film his driving from afar. 4. Sessions are few and far between - availability is pretty much non-existent. 5. My son enjoyed it but it was basically driving an electric toy car (my son has one of these cars so it was very similar to that).

Old carpark with cones
12 September 2020
This was gor my son and he loved the driving. As an adult the venue was changed 3 days before and the venue at Gaydon was in a old carpark. Gravely with holes on floor and a bodged job last minute. I would expect a proper track.

Very nice - but can be improved

Hi. It was very nice, thank you! The instructors could be dressed as a happy and smiling police staff - that would have even better impact on kids. This is how they do in other countries in similar motoring events for children.
