Q: Once I Have Gone Around A Track, Can I Do It Again?
Absolutely YES! This is one of the big differences between the Polaris 4WD park and all other 4×4 parks we are aware of. Once you have completed a course, you are more than welcome to do it again and again and again as much as you like… Your vehicle has a whole day pass – so enjoy the track(s), stop for lunch, then do that track again, or pick another.
