Police Chase Las Vegas coming to LVMS in January
In January, Police Chase Las Vegas will offer thrill seekers an opportunity so unique that it can't be replicated anywhere else in the United States.
Patrons will go behind the scenes and actually participate in a simulated police chase. Hearts will pound as lights flash and sirens blare when "suspects" attempt to outrun the guns as they are pursued by the "police."
In the end, participants will agree that getting "caught" is half the fun.
Participants play the role of either or both a police officer and a suspect. Once initial roles have been assigned, participants will be placed into either a patrol car or suspect vehicle.
The excitement begins to build when, out of a dead silence, the police officer is contacted over the crackling patrol car radio by the command center, who informs them that felons are fleeing the scene of a crime and that suspects are in the area. Moments later, the suspect's car races by the patrol car.
The police officer then switches on the lights and sirens and the chase begins. Once the suspect has been "caught," drivers switch places, and the hunter becomes the hunted as the chase begins again.
"Police Chase Las Vegas is going to be a thrilling attraction for anyone who takes part," Las Vegas Motor Speedway President Chris Powell said. "Nowhere else in the world can a person take advantage of this type of automotive activity. Our speedway often has been called the world's most diverse motorsports facility, and the addition of Police Chase Las Vegas underscores that diversity.
"It will offer a unique experience that is certain to create many memorable moments for every customer. We're looking forward to this new and exciting partnership."
Police Chase Las Vegas will have a soft opening on Jan. 13, 2019, and the grand opening will take place on Jan. 19, 2019.
"We are very excited to make Las Vegas Motor Speedway the home of Police Chase Las Vegas," Police Chase Las Vegas partner Damian Sheets said. "We bring such a unique, one-of-a-kind, adrenaline-pumping experience, unlike anything anywhere in the country outside of Las Vegas, that people who try it, are absolutely blown away. Everyone at some point has dreamed of what it would be like to be a police officer, or to run from the cops without consequence. This is your chance."
Police Chase Las Vegas offers guests additional experiences beyond the original police and suspect chase. Other options include experiencing "PIT Maneuvers." Police Chase Las Vegas offerings are not otherwise available to the public anywhere else in the country (and are exclusive to law enforcement professionals).
Police Chase Las Vegas is not all fun and games. Participants are given classroom as well as hands-on safety training by police professionals with vast training in all areas of defensive driving.
The program offerings are primarily based on the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department's "Emergency Vehicle Obstacle Course." The experience incorporates many parts of actual training programs used by the police in Las Vegas, as taught by former LVMPD law enforcement training staff.
