    Silly question BUT I want to do the RP Driving experience. Does it require a lot of upper body/leg strength to power one of those cars? I have a sm frame but am in shape. Any Ladies out there who have done it & how scary/exhilarating is it?

    Hi, Rebekah!  It is both scary and exhilirating, but I could best describe it as totally wicked awesome! 

    The car itself is relatively light, as you can imagine.  There isn't a lot to the car beyond the engine - no back seats, no spare tires, no kids toys, no sippy boxes - I believe my minivan would move way quicker without all the kids' stuff in the back!

    I wouldn't say it requires a lot of body strength, but I will tell you that my muscles were a bit stiff and sore.  I think that was more because of being nervous and holding myself so stiffly.  I'm a pretty big girl, but when I went, we were with a pretty big group of people from my husband's company, all shapes and sizes, and no one seemed to have any complaints about needing extra strength to power the car.

    My knees were knocking, but I would do it again in a heartbeat!  I hope you get to go and enjoy!
