Regular driving simulation sessions let anyone over 1.2 metres tall take part in a kinetic and hyper realistic reproduction of a Grand Prix circuit race as they work to set the fastest lap time in a Petronas Formula One car.

There’s also the “Little Learners” experience where kids can take a battery powered miniatures Mercedes Benz SL Roadster out for a spin on the specially-designed indoor circuit.

This is not only a great way to keep the kids entertained, but it also serves as a great educational tool as children are taught about safe driving a they navigate through make shift zebra crossings, traffic lights and other aspects of everyday driving.

WHAT’S THERE FOR OLDER CHILDREN?

Older children don’t need to worry about standing at the side-line as they watch their parents fly around the track.

The ‘Under 17s 1 Hour First & Last Driving Experiences’ provides younger people with the perfect opportunity to get behind the wheel of a luxurious Mercedes-Benz whilst protected by both a professional driving coach and a dual-control system for maximum safety.

To be eligible, you simply need to be under the age of 17 and over 1.5 metres tall – no driving licence or previous experience required.

Not only are these sessions great fun for older children, they’re also a perfect introduction to driving in general and the first-hand experience acquired here will be ideal for anyone starting driving lessons in the near future.

FOR THE GROWN UPS

Naturally, those old enough to own a real driving licence will feel right at home at Mercedes-Benz World, and car lovers will truly be in their element throughout the course of the day.

For the brave hearted, the 1 hour AMG experience provides all the thrills of Mercedes’ iconic performance line as you hurtle around the plethora of twists and turns the outdoor track has to offer. To make things even better, you’ll even be treated to your very own expert instructor to advise you on the optimum racing line to take as you soar towards the apex!

If you’re looking for something a little different, there’s even the option to take one of the many 4x4 vehicles out on the site’s challenging off road section. Here, participants will face treacherous terrain including the sharp inclines of the Ski Slope, uneven waterways and the unnerving V-Gulley section which requires drivers to pivot on diagonal wheels in order to complete the section.

Driving an AMG at high speeds is amazing fun; however, no one likes a long boring trip home. Luckily, there’s nothing to worry about at Mercedes-Benz World, as the attraction is just a short 15 minute drive from The Bridge Hotel – perfect!
