You can get the passes for all day or by the ticket. The best value is the all-day pass because the "good" tracks can cost up to six tickets and it will probably cost more by the ticket. We had five people go, and they ranged in ages, from 36 up to 59, and everybody had a good time. My mother-in-law had a great time and rode the cars and had fun just like a little kid. Plus, we were all able to drive "fast," because everybody knows how slow the traffic in Myrtle can be.

There are different tracks of different shapes or ovals, and there are different types of go-carts as well. We rode all that we could because some are just for the kids, some for just taller people, and some for two people. They do go pretty fast; I am not sure how fast, but it does seem like you are driving a race car. There are quite a few cars to drive, so as you go around, you are racing with from 4 to 25 cars, depending on the track. Make sure you take your camera, as we had quite a few good pictures of everybody as they were coming down the straight away.

For food and arcade games, they have that, too, but try to curb your appetite and go to the NASCAR Cafe, which is right next door across the parking lot and has just the right feel after racing all day. We went when there were not a lot of people, so that was a plus, but not all the rides were open due to the cooler weather (late April) and lack of the crowds. They didn't have the water bumper cars going because of the weather, and the Eliminator (which costs an extra fee and requires a valid driver's license) was also not open due to the lack of people. This was a lot of fun, and we are definitely going back again next time we are in town.
