I had heard of the fast dash in a supercar at highland park and booked in a retirement gift today. The anticipation was also magnified by the 10 lap go kart experience immediately before. I thought I was fast but lapped by 3 guys on a stag do!! Steve got me into the Ferrari with hair net and helmet. Explained what we were going to do and bang we were off. Fantastic acceleration and grip, videoed the lap and Steve was not only a superb driver but happy to converse along the way!!! Great experience which summed up the whole experience at highland park. Fantastic, professional and super friendly. I will be back!!

We were a group of 15 and booked to drive the Go-Karts. Our ages ranged up to 87 years old and we had a bal l!! Well presented and organised, we had so much fun racing around the track in these super little karts. Afterwards, several in the group also booked to do the Ferrari Fastlap and all came back with the biggest grins ever! They loved it, the brilliant driver, the speed and the absolute thrill. This whole park complex is a real credit to those who organise, run and serve here. We would totally recommend it to anyone.

My husband was given a voucher to do super lap plus 1 extra lap which he throughly enjoyed. Great idea to be able to put your own phone in holder to video the ride, he had a blast, the driver was great and so were the girls inside at counter, would highly recommend

Need for speed? Highlands Motorsport Park is great fun for all the family. Plenty to see and do here. The Tucan is a must do. No long waits. Customer service is outstanding.

My husband was buzzing this experience! He was feeling unmotivated after doing all the drving and I thought to give him the adrenalin shot and so he got in it and came out of Mustang with full energy!! Tip: take your phone with you and record the entire ride! Not sure if I am willing to do it myself but its absolute fun!

There is not just one thing to review here. We were a family group of 7, 4 of us out of towners. We generally go to some sort of karts when visiting other towns visa versa. The males in the group rate the Karts very high (top of the list out of 4 different Karts throughout South Island), that they had a second go. Us girls had a go too... but not a second go. The museum was great. The bike racing track was a blast for some, but at times the cars wouldn't go. The cafe did mean chips... well worth trying. And the Loos with a View was a great addition. Out of 10/of 12 events, this experience came top along with the luge.
