$16 to get in just to walk around at the wonderland event. Every event camel rides, skating etc cost an additional $10-15. Santa’s village is just a bunch of vendors. Some of the lights were cool but ...there wasn’t enough lights to even make it worth it. Paid $4 for hot chocolate that wasn’t hot and didn’t taste like chocolate. The thought was nice but it definitely wasn’t worth the drive from North Austin or the price we paid. See More

Not worth the money. Not enough lights & pricing to high. Santas village was vendors selling stuff liked you'd find during pecan street festival. Paid 4$ for hot cocoa- really just hot water and ins...tant cocoa mix. Didnt even have fake freeze dried marshmallows. Overall.tasted really bad Oh and the ice skating rink ? Complete false advertising. No ice- you'd be better off bringing roller blades . The only decent light display was the hall of lights. They had some areas set up for photos and that was ok.

I don't think I'd go again unless they bump up the lights And include a few more freebies.

Avoid if you don't have kids. There isn't much for adults.

Overall, I would go again. This is their first year and I hope they improve the lights around the track. Good: The tickets should probably be around $10 per person instead of $16. That is a little h...igh for what you get, but I bought 3 tickets and got the 4th free, so was close in price to probably what is needed (could be cheaper but tons of employees there they have to pay). The food looked really good, had our favorite foot-long corn dogs, but we had already eaten before went. The hot chocolate was REALLY great tasting. They have lots of space and was not crowded on a week night. The lighted trees are beautiful! The singing trees are very nicely done. We did pay $5 to get in the petting zoo and we loved it! They have tons of very friendly and obnoxious goats, rabbits, 2 llamas, camels, a pig, etc. There was plenty of room in the fenced area. The people running the place are super nice, both the petting zoo and Circuit has a ton of employees stationed around that are friendly and show you the way. We also like the tunnel of lights, set to music, flows nicely, etc.Oh, one more great thing - they have snow globes set up that you can go inside. We loved that part, so funny, daughter slipped everywhere on the snow and could not stand up, was laughing for me to take her picture. The live music bands doing Christmas carols sounded good too. The stage is at the back near the track so you can hear them as you walk.
Bad: The lights and decor around the track ARE cute but they really need more, they could have put more up, hope they do next year. That part was not "filled in" enough. You walk a long way and not enough lights. The carnival is extra but honestly it cost the same as the carnival at the Rodeo. I have seen plenty of families spend that cash at the Rodeo so not sure why complain now. Difference here though because they all creaked and scared me. So watch out, not good condition. I also think if little kids want to ride the camel that cost too much. We rode ponies when kid was little and it needs to be around that cost. The last bad thing was the ice skating, not even an attempt at fake ice. Lost of people there paid but it is basically a board and did not look like people could "glide" very well.

Went to F1 today, used the parking+shuttle from Travis Expo center. It was brilliant, super fast, friendly, easy, and when it used to take us more than 2 hours to get out of the facility after the rac...e to get home, was barely an hour today.
Seats at T15 were perfect, plenty of food trucks and bars, barely any wait.
We've been coming since the first race every single year and this has been the best all in experience so far. Keep up the great work.

Went to the winter wonderland with my husband and daughter, and we absolutely LOVED it. We are hoping that it is a yearly thing since we would love to make it a tradition for our family. So many thing...s to do, staff was very friendly, reasonable prices, and it was spread over a big enough space, that it never felt crowded. Very family friendly. You could take a stroller anywhere without any issues. See More

Hands downs worst concert experience last night at F1. We walked straight through security without a metal detector, bag check, or arm band check. After recent events in our country, this made us VERY... uneasy. We waited 1 1/2 hours to get onto the field. Following the concert, we waited 2 hrs 15 minutes for a bus to our car in lot Q. Will not return. Logistically, I don’t know how you could think 4 buses for hundreds of people would be sufficient. See More

Track is great and there are many locations that have good viewing from GA seats. However, trying to get any information from them is next to impossible. I have a daughter that has a severe food all...ergy and we have not been able to get an answer as to a list of foods and the ingredients to see if there is anything that she can eat. Additionally, if there is not anything that she can safely eat, we cannot get information as to whether we can bring in food for her to eat. Fan safety must not be of concern to them. Also, I have been to other F1 venues and we have been able to bring in our own food or drink, but not at COTA and there has been no good explanation as to why. Communication is not a strong suit of COTA. See More

My family drove an hour to Winter Wonderland only to be told at the gate they were sold out. I had no idea a circus attraction could be sold out. We considered buying tix in advance but knew we wanted... the wrist band which couldn’t be purchased in advance so instead of making two purchases, we decided to wait... Congrats Circuits - You sold out but tonight was a very bad experience for us... See More

I went to the 2017 edition of the FIA World Endurance Championship Six Hours of Circuit of The Americas (aka Lone Star Le Mans) for the first time (Been a long time fan of endurance racing) on Friday ...September 15th and Saturday September 16th.

All the track volunteers and staff were very courteous and EXTREMELY helpful when I approached to ask them a question or for assistance, this is one of the reasons that made my race day experience a pleasant one.

I would also like to say the organizers of this event the FIA (Federation Internationale de l'Automobile, International governing body of motorsports) & ACO (Automobile Club de l'Ouest, organizers of the World Endurance Championship and the 24 hours of Le Mans), made this event very fan friendly, with the pit lane/grid walk and the autograph session before the grid walk.

Also, the paddock was open throughout, so you could walk the paddock during practice, race and quailfying and get to talk to some of the crews who happen to be working out back, this is assuming they are not on the pit crew and have to run off for a pit stop (Which, being a race fan I would understand since they have a job to do).

Free Seating in the premium grandstands (Main, Turn 1 and Turn 15) was well worth it. Turn 1 and Turn 15 are the grandstands to go to for photo ops. The only minor complaint is, both these grandstands are uncovered, so be prepared to drink plenty of water and stay hydrated in the September Austin Heat (I personally didn't last long in the turn 1 and turn 15 grandstands, but I did last long enough to get some photos).

The main grandstand had covered box seating and as the sun went down the rest of the main grandstand became shady.

Last but not least, the race was very affordable 3 days of racing for $79.

All in all my first WEC race was EXTREMELY enjoyable, I definitely will be back for another WEC event in Austin in the very near future.

I went to the grand opening and have gone every year since then to watch motogp. Every year is a new experience. The staff is friendly and the buzz in the air is electrifying.

Winter wonderland was not what they made it to be.. it was so unorganized, it’s not worth the $16 per Person... they also say there are “free” events but there isn’t.. the “outside petting Zoo” is sta...nding on the other side of the gate watching people go in to pet/feed the animals. Not to mention the hour lines... we didn’t get to see Santa either... staff was so rude, they didn’t care to answer question unless you were handing them money... I definitely won’t be returning.

The Circuit of the Americas is truly a must visit track for any motorsport enthusiast. Whether you're into auto racing or motorcycle racing, it's definitely an impressive facility. Originally design...ed to host F1 races, it's also perfect for other types of motorsport racing. The state of the art facility is massive and will require lots of walking around, however, they do provide shuttle service to help you get from one area to the other. If you ever get a chance to visit, even for a concert, definitely check it out, and if you aren't afraid of heights, check out the view from the tower! See More

Winter wonderland was the worst event I've ever been to. The ticket system was the worst, no vendors knew how to use it. $13 to skate, I get on the ice and it's not even ice!! I can't express my hatre...d for this event. See More

Never work for these people if you want to get paid. Apparently no one on their team knows anything about when or how people will get paid. Then when asked for a number to speak to someone who may kno...w, they refuse to allow employees access. Such a shame!!!! See More

It it quite simply the quintessential Stadium of Motorsport in the Western Hemisphere. Not a bad seat in the house, nor a bad day at the track. Heck, even Monsoon Qualifying 2015 was a blast!

It's where I drank my first beer.It's where I found Jesus. Where I wrecked my first car,I tore it all to pieces. I learned the path to heaven is full of sinners and believers. Learned that happiness... on earth ain't just for high achievers. I've learned, I've come to know, there's life at both ends of Circuit of the Americas. See More
