Disappointed
28 August 2019
My brother and me had this experience bought for us by our parents for a birthday treat, we both, eventually, after a 3 hour wait, enjoyed the experience but were somewhat surprised at the hidden add-on costs involved, our parents were also disappointed by these and would not have booked the experience if they had known. We were required to pay a further £25 for insurance, another £10 if we wanted a pre-drive lap drive to see the course and £40 if we wanted a copy of the video of our experience.

Money Pit and Inaccuracies
27 August 2019
This was given to me as a christmas gift by my mother, as I am 6ft 8in tall my mom knows the importance of checking for height restrictions, inaccuracy 1 - no where did it say on this gift a height restriction applied. The gift was purchased as a weekend use, inaccuracy 2 - when booking with car chase heroes they advised it could only be used for weekdays. The booking process with CCH identified quickly that it would drain money from me. 1. I had to pay an additional fee to change to another car as the GT40 height restriction (unstated anywhere) resulted in the use of a different car. 2. I was also asked to pay for an optional colliision damage waiver premium as the excess in the event of damgage would be £5000, so at the initial booking with CCH I was immediately £45 down against this gift. 3. Upon arrival at the venue there was a host of extras which they pushed at more cost. I opted only for a single sighting lap, shared car with 2 others at £10. 4. The organisers issue you a lanyard and memory stick which takes photos and videos during your experience, however, only later at briefings are you told that you will be charged £50 if you forget to hand these in before leaving. Photos and video offered of your drive and I took a sinple 9 x 6 photo option which cost £20. So all in this generous gift from my mother cost me £75 of my own money to enjoy. The line of people waiting to check in was very long and the advice to turn up 15 minutes before your alloted time was impossible to achieve, I queued for 40 minutes and others were an hour plus. The drive was good fun and the instructor excellent and pleasant, however some clarity needs to be given regarding the hidden costs that you may incur when booking. Its a shame as my mom was very upset that her kindness cost me £75.

A long wait
26 August 2019
Luckily it was a sunny day as the venue was very open. Unfortunately we where waiting for about 3 hours which spoilt the experience however once in the car wow what an experience. When going to purchase the full video package my video was not available so had to settle for just a photo. When you go for your experience expect to pay extras eg insurance waver, pre lap, photos, videos and over priced food.

Very good day - but beware the extra charges!
17 December 2018
Good day out and lots of different cars available. The one specially booked broke down unfortunately but the organisers allowed you toswitch to another car and have extra laps as an apology. The only thing to be aware of is the person getting g the gift still has to pay additional charges (booking fees, photos, and damage waiver etc...) so they need to be made aware of that
