I rode the Racing simulator (extra 4 Euros), I think the coolest part about this ride is watching it from the outside since it looks like a futuristic robot.  But the ride itself and the graphics of the screen was not good at all.  If they change the screens and made the ride a bit longer then maybe it will be an awesome experience.

Verdict:  This is definitely an awesome museum to go visit especially if you’re around the Stuttgart area.  Not only do you learn more about Mercedes itself but also a bit about history.
