Pocono Raceway is partnered with KultureCity to make the raceway a sensory inclusive motorsports facility.
Sensory sensitivities, or challenges with sensory regulation, are often experienced by individuals with autism, dementia, PTSD and other similar conditions. One of the major barriers for these individuals is sensitivity to over-stimulation and noise, which is an enormous part of a sporting venue like Pocono Raceway. Thanks to our partnership with KultureCity we are better prepared to assist guests with sensory sensitivities in having the most comfortable and accommodating experience possible.
Below is more information as it relates to Sensory Bags, Sensory Rooms, and our Inclusive Playground.
Event weekend attendees will have access to two dedicated sensory rooms, one located behind the Grandstand near the Gate 8 Guest Services window and one located in the Infield near the media center, for those who may need a quieter and more secure environment. Additionally, a private lactation room will be available for nursing mothers near the sensory room behind the Grandstand.
These bags are equipped with noise cancelling headphones, fidget tools, verbal cue cards, and weighted lap pads that will also be available to all guests who may feel overwhelmed by the environment. If you or someone you are with are in need of a sensory bag please visit either Sensory Room Location. You may also visit the guest services window at gate 8 or the Pocono Raceway merchandise trailer in the paddock area.
