About the Hoover Dam Exotic Driving Experience
Your dream of driving an exotic car is coming true. Four times over. With our Hoover Dam Experience you’ll drive four crushingly-brilliant exotic cars from Ferrari, Lamborghini, and more in a 50-mile round-tip tour from Las Vegas to the Hoover Dam.
World Class Driving is the original exotic car driving experience. Since we launched in 2006, over 25,000 participants have trusted us to provide a memorable and thrilling exotic car driving experience.
During this all-new driving experience in Las Vegas, you'll arrive the World Class Driving Dream Garage on the Las Vegas Strip. After a short safety briefing from our instructors, you'll drive four high performance supercars on a guided round-trip road tour to the Hoover Dam - rotating through each exotic car at checkpoints.
Once you arrive at the Hoover Dam, you'll enjoy spectacular views of one of the most popular destinations in Las Vegas.
After a brief stop for photos, you'll drive exotic cars back to the Las Vegas Strip, rotating through exotic cars en route. In total, you'll drive approximately 50 miles (80.5km).
At the end of your experience, you'll have a chance to review your Hoover Dam Experience with fellow enthusiasts.

About World Class Driving
Most of the other driving experiences in the market are over in just 6 to 9 minutes
, and you'll experience only one car
. In comparison, we've designed our driving experiences to maximize the amount of time you spend behind the wheel - usually nearly an hour of seat time
spread across more than one car
. You'll get maximum seat time, and a chance to find out what makes each exotic so special.
In addition, most other providers offer solo experiences. Our experiences are designed to comfortably allow you to bring a guest passenger on your experience. Your guest will ride with you for the entire experience. Share your passion!

Our exotic and muscle car experiences give you the unique opportunity to personally drive the world's hottest dream cars.
Our world-class showroom, appropriately named the "Dream Garage," is conveniently located just off the Las Vegas Strip. All our experiences start from this location, where you will be then shuttled to your exotic or muscle car lineup on the outskirts of the city.
From here, you will start your adrenaline-pumping drive in 3 or 4 exotic or muscle cars, getting the chance to take the wheel of these cars yourself. The experiences take a lead-follow format with our instructors leading the way in their pace cars, communicating with you when necessary via radio. Over the course of your experience, we will stop and allow time for you to take pictures, switch cars, and enjoy the camaraderie of fellow car fans!
All our experiences offer you the opportunity to bring along a non-driving guest passenger, so don't leave your friend/significant other at the hotel for this one!
About This Experience
This event is open to everyone. There are no specific weight or height restrictions for participation in our driving experiences. However, most of our cars have limited headroom and are fitted with factory-provided racing seats, which provide lateral support. It is our experience that drivers over 280 lbs or 6'5" or taller may be extremely uncomfortable. We advise that if you fall into this category it is better to call us before booking an event. In addition:
- Drivers need to be between 23 and 75 years old.
- Drivers over 75 may be able to participate subject to certain insurance company approvals.
- Drivers must hold a valid driving license in the country of their residence.
- Drivers must be able to drive the cars without the aid of special equipment.
No. All of the cars in this experience have an "automatic mode" where the clutch and gear selection is handled by a computer. You can also choose the F1-style paddles to operate gear changes. Some also use "sequential manual gearboxes," or triptronic shifters. This new E-Gear technology is found in many new high performance cars, and is a manual gearbox where the clutch and gear selection is handled by a computer when you pull the gear change paddle.
During this driving experience, youʼll personally get behind the wheel of four exotic supercars on a guided public road tour to the Hoover Dam, just east of Las Vegas. You'll drive for approximately 50 miles (80.5km). Youʼll find out what makes these cars so unique, and probably discover a new favorite.
During this driving experience, you will be accompanied along the route by our professional staff. Our staff has professional driving experience and most have worked within the racing industry. The group of cars is led by a pace car and followed by another staff car to manage the group on the open road. This is to ensure that no one gets lost, or if there is a problem along the route that there will be a person to identify and respond to issues. This format makes it possible for our guests to simply focus on their driving and enjoy the cars.
You will drive on a guided, public road route through the Lake Mead National Recreation Area. This spectacular location incorporates a combination of sweeping turns, twists and straights. Our goal is to find roads that will allow you to enjoy the drive to the fullest extent. Bottled water is available in the lead car for your enjoyment.
Shortly after you arrive, you'll participate in a short safety & orientation briefing. This will cover the route information, group selection, and safety. We'll also provide instruction on the operation of each vehicle.
Sport casual is ideal. The pedals on some of the cars are close together so sport shoes or sneakers are a good choice. (Boots are not ideal.) No safety equipment is required. Don't forget your camera and/or video recorder so you or your guest passenger can capture the event! Cameras cannot be mounted in cars. There is room in each car for a small backpack.
(We can provide in-car camera footage on a USB drive in a souvenir case for an additional charge)
Sure! You may bring one guest passenger per driver on this experience. This guest will ride along with you for the entire experience. You may register a passenger with your reservation, or when you arrive.
You may also share the drive with someone else for an additional fee. During the shared drive, you and your friend will "split" the driving, with Driver 1 driving two vehicles, and Driver 2 driving the remaining vehicle(s). In the case of a three-car experience, we recommend a spirited round of rock-paper-scissors.
Light rain is not a problem, and even light rain is rare in Las Vegas. Storms can cause the event to be delayed or postponed to the next day. If the storm is persistent we may reschedule to another date or give you the option to change your booking to another scheduled event.
No, you do not need to be able to drive a stick. All the vehicles are equipped with an "automatic mode" that enables you to drive it just like your normal car. However, to fully enjoy the experience, we recommend that you try driving with the paddle shifters. The gearbox is electronic (no clutch pedal) making operation foolproof and, quite frankly....exhilarating.

Reservations are not refundable. You can transfer your booking to another driver at any time. You may also reschedule your reservation to a future date in some cases, (depending on the event) up to 30 days prior to your scheduled event. (Unfortunately, we have no flexibility on cancellations, as event schedules, instructors, and facilities are scheduled well in advance of your event.)
We do not require reservations, but we highly recommend one, as most sessions sell out in advance.
In the event of an accident, your insurance coverage is primary. For our Las Vegas experiences, we provide a Loss/Damage Waiver option at checkout to complement any applicable vehicle insurance you may already carry. We also include event liability coverage while you are using our fleet at no additional cost.
All our Las Vegas experiences take place in the stunning and colorful Red Rock Canyon
just west of Las Vegas. Our route is a winding public road course that takes you through the heart of this classic American desert scenery.
Our longer "XL" experiences travel further toward Mount Potosi, one of the six high points in the Las Vegas area. These roads are winding and fast, perfectly suited for high-performance exotic or muscle cars.
Total driving time on our experiences ranges from about an hour for the regular experiences to an hour and 15 minutes on the "XL" experiences. In general, you can expect to spend about 15 minutes driving each car.
Drivers must be at least 23 years old. Drivers older than 70 may be able to participate subject to certain insurance company approvals.
Passengers must be at least 6 years old to comply with Nevada child seating regulations.
