“Sales meetings, corporate driving schools, conventions, parties, or weddings, Texas Motor Speedway can help make your special event something special! The state-of-the-art Media Center with theater seating or one of the 22,000 square foot garages can be transformed to hospitality events or meeting spaces that are perfect for creating new, or building upon existing, client relationships. Also, inside the luxurious high-rise Speedway Club, there are several meeting rooms, a five-star dining facility, and a ballroom where you can entertain up to 600 guests and enjoy an amazing view of "The Great American Speedway!"”

“Hawaiian Falls Roanake takes water parks in Texas to a new level of excitement with the Mega WaterWorld attraction, the largest aquatic play structure in the world. Equipped with body slides, dump buckets, a three-line racer, and a family raft ride, this attraction offers fun for the entire family. The Roanoke Water Park is also home to Beach Blasters, the world's first multi-tube slide where participants can race against each other to the finish line. **For a small fee, you can take in your own cooler!**”
