Outstanding Gift

I swooped the American truck experience for a Volvo artic with trailer. The staff on site were excellent and the experience was outstanding. I found the booking process frustrating and had to get help to accomplish this. Once I arrived on site I was absolutely delighted with the way I was treated and the truck driving itself.

Dissapointed as i would have liked an actual piece of circuit to drive around rather than just manouvering up and down.

Hidden Extras!
10 July 2018
The overall experience was great but just be aware when booking on a weekend it cost an extra £25 and insurance was an extra £25 on top of that, so in total on top of the gift amount I ended up paying an extra £50 which if I’d have realised at the time would probably not have got.

Didn't drive the truck, but got a good deal
23 June 2018
"Unfortunately Optimus is not available today" notified us a nice gentleman on arrival. We travelled 2 hrs to York so it wasn't the best news of the day. The manager was very polite, apologised for the inconvenience and offered me to rebook my experience or to drive any 2 cars of my choice (which is 2 for a price of 1 deal). It was a very nice gesture on behalf of the team and had an amazing day out! Big thank you to the amazing team on site and to the fantastic driving instructors for making this experience a memorable one. :)
