NASCAR Hall of Fame
Conveniently located in Uptown Charlotte, North Carolina, the NASCAR Hall of Fame is an interactive entertainment attraction honoring the history and heritage of NASCAR. The high-tech venue, designed to educate and entertain race fans and non-fans alike, opened May 11, 2010, and includes artifacts, hands-on exhibits, a 278-person state-of-the-art theater, Hall of Honor, Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant, NASCAR Hall of Fame Gear Shop, NASCAR Productions-operated broadcast studio and an attached parking garage on Brevard Street. The 5-acre site also includes a privately developed 19-story office tower and 102,000-square-foot expansion to the Charlotte Convention Center, highlighted by a 40,000-square-foot ballroom. The NASCAR Hall of Fame is owned by the City of Charlotte, licensed by NASCAR and operated by the Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority. The goal of the facility is to honor NASCAR icons and create an enduring tribute to the drivers, crew members, team owners and others that have impacted the sport in the past, present and future.
Neat displays and interactive stuff like race simulator are well done. Value for money not great however. Had to pay for simulator on top of admission. Also there were no docents in the display areas to engage on substance. Staff was mostly directing folks vs adding value to the exhibits. Management needs step up the total visitor experience.
Had higher expectations for some reason. The simulator on the second floor is interesting and you can participate in a pit crew simulation where you pretend to change a tire and gas up the car. Can be fun for kids and adults. Other than that not much to write home about. It one of those places you only visit once.
Great! Great! Great! The must go place for families with sons. I would definitely come back if I had one. My husband was so happy to touch everything and participate in the interactions. Im a great Cars movie fan, so it was great to see Lightning McQueen in the real size.
Its an awesome place to know the history of car racing. You might be surprised to know that the whole racing started with a car chase between cop and alcohol seller. :) Cars movie lovers will enjoy further more because of the history around it. You do get to be in the race(in a simulator though :) ).
Awesome experience! I like that you offer different packages for different things. My party had a great time with the simulators and interactive games. There is something for every fan.
