The bus wasn't clean. The driver was unprofessional. We had a horrible experience. Please don't ruin your next big event with this service.

An absolutely superb experience! Customer service was exceptional and gave us a competitive price. The bus arrived early and it was ready and waiting for us later. The bus was fun, comfortable and perfect and made my 30th birthday a wonderful experiance!!! I would not hesitate in recommending Rain' Uptown and will definitely use them again.

My friend recently turned 30yrs old, and we thought a great way to celebrate would be to have a "party bus" take us around to all our favorite bars and restuarants. It was so much fun! The bus was the perfect party scene to connect with all our friends. It was clean, prompt and the bus driver was awesome. At the end of the night we didn't want to get off the bus... Instead we wanted to stay on the bus and party and dance and sing to a little Rihanna. Fantastic experience and such a great way to make a special ocassion even better!

THIS COMPANY WAS GREAT AND DRIVERS ARE VERY CONSIDERATE. THE BUS WAS VERY CLEAN. I HAVE USED THE BUSES THREE TIMES iAND A LIMO ONCE. NEVER HAD I HAD A PROBLEM WITH ANYONE.

DON'T BELIEVE THESE NEGATIVE REVIEWS. YES I TILED MY DRIVER $80 CAUSE I THINK YOU SHOULD WHEN THEY DELIVER A FUN TIME AND A SAFE TIMe.

If i could i wouldnt even give this company a single star. GO WITH ANY COMPANY BUT THIS COMPANY. I have used ragin uptown at least 5 times for some fun nights with some of my closest friends. Every single time was sub par. They were late, they demanded too much money and i was told the tip was included with my price and it wasnt so it was awkward when the driver asked us for a tip. But thew last time i used them was the worst!!! i had reserved buses for two months in advance the girl who organizes everything said she will put me down but it wouldnt be final till i confirmed it a little closer to the date. i didnt confirm it at all at anytime whats so ever. i was able to recieve i hugely discounted price to carolina charters so i wasnt going to use ragin. after notifying ragin uptown i was forced to use them bc i was being threatened with a whole bunch of bull crap. and the bosss is a prick and needs to be punched for the things he said to me. go with any company but this company.

I love Ragin' Uptown! I have used both busses and their sweet boat on Lake Norman and had a great time, everytime! My last experience was for a group of my friends and I going to a concert, the bus was on time and a perfect way to avoid driving!
Jen is super to work with and I look forward to working with her again.

I've been meaning to do this for a while because I see so many bad reviews about Ragin' Uptown. I used them for the Kings of Leon concert in September and then went out afterwards. First of all the rate was great for the amount of hours we had it for (8 hours). We got picked up in 3 locations so that everyone didn't have to all meet in one place. During the concert the bus stayed in the parking lot so we can go back and forth as we pleased to keep drinking (we brought our own coolers with our own drinks). After the concert we went to a few bars in the University area then got dropped back off at those 3 initial locations. The driver Patrick was great and completely tolerant of our not so great singing of Kings of Leon- of course that's all we were listening to..lol. One of my friends used them for her wedding, and her fiance at the time used Ragin' Uptown for his bachelor party. People that have bad experiences are the only ones writing reviews because clearly they have nothing else to do, but those that actually do have great times on the buses dont really bother because why should they. Anyway, I am here to express my feelings towards Ragin' Uptown because they are not given the credit they deserve. They've been around so long..they must be doing something right.

We have had many friends use or tell us great things about their experiences with this company for years. It was my husbands birthday and we rented a bus for a 5 hour "night on the town" and had an absolute blast. Well....we ended up keeping the bus for 6.5 hours because we were having so much fun.
I can't think of a better way to safely bounce around town with friends and family than on a fun bus with limo seating, music and a great fun atmosphere. It was pretty cool that our armbands got us to the front of every line at the the 3 busy clubs we went to and we didn't have to pay a dime for admission. We were never promised free admission but the clubs rolled out the red carpet for us. We have already got another rental next week fro new years eve....! We definitely recommend Ragin' Uptown!

***BEWARE***PLEASE DO NOT GIVE YOUR MONEY TO THIS COMPANY OR ELSE...If you see a four star review, it must be Jeremy(the owner???) of this company writing his own review. We were told to choose a bus online months prior to a major birthday party event for 24+. Driver was 30 mins late to pick us up,(reading other reviews it may be safe to believe bus broke down in route to pick us up), and suprise a tiny blue bus unlike its pictures showed up, nothing like what we were promised. We refused to get on the bus bc it was not acceptable. In short the owner "Jeremy" never returned our calls, we were told by Jennifer no refund of any of the money paid, when she admitted to sending us the bus she wanted us to have (as if it was her money that paid for the bus), and I can go on and on with nothing but horrible things to say about this company. If you want to give away money, then go with Ragin Uptown Bus because there will not be a party...only disappointment...

We are regular users of Ragin' Uptown as are 2 of our neighbors. We recommend this amazing service 110% as do our friends!! We have had courteous drivers who always have paid attention to every detail and go the extra mile every single time we have used them. They have fun reliable vehicles (our favorite is the Electric Bus) and have shown up on time every except once, because of my screw up on the pick-up address. I read a couple of the negative reviews and called the company and talked to their event planner about the situation. It turns out that one bad group that trashed a bus and had a clean up fee told their office that they were going to have all of their friends over the next few months write different negative reviews about their unreliability (over $100 clean-up fee). Do not believe what you read....just call me and I will give you references. It kills me when people try to do this to a company who has spent the last 10 years building a solid reputation. BTW...over 25 rentals between all of us on the street in 5 years and never ever a mechanical issue. Have fun!

This company does not give you a refund! Even worse- they don't tell you that the $125 deposit that you put down for reservation is non-refundable!
A few months ago, I was going to use the shuttle service for 15-20 of my buddies. Spoke with Jeremy (the owner?) about the shuttle. He stated that the shuttle was "flexible" and "more flexible than hiring the vehicle for the night". The shuttle uses vehicles that are already being rented for the night. The rented vehicles will drop off the people who have rented the vehicle (at a restaurant, club etc) and then they'll use THAT vehicle to "shuttle" other people around.... sketch to me- especially if you are the ones who rented the vehicle to begin with. You don't actually get it for the night- it will be used by other people while you are in the restaurant/club etc.....
Anyway, I specifically asked what would be done in the case my plans fell through and I no longer needed their services. Jeremy stated that "the shuttle service was "flexible" and that it wasn't like committing to a vehicle for the night; it would not be a problem and I have his "word" ". I record conversations with businesses on my phone so these are actual quotes! (Highly recommend doing this by the way- especially if you are going to deal with this company).
Well, as luck would have it, my plans fell through (we changed the weekend we were going to have the bachelor party) and I needed to cancel. I got to talk to Jeremy again (yet another conversation that I recorded) and it wasn't until then that I was notified that the $150 deposit I gave was non-refundable! It doesn't mention this on their website and it wasn't mentioned in the contract that was emailed to me about the shuttle service. When I questioned this to Jeremy he stated that it is "not his job to tell me about cancellation if I don't specifically ask." He stated that "If I had stated the word 'cancel' he would have been required to go over the policy with me." So in asking him about canceling, since I didn't use the word 'cancel' in my sentence, he wasn't "obligated to tell me"...... shady business! I NEVER got my money back. The 'best they could do" was to give me a voucher. That is worthless to me considering I don't live in the state! Had I known this, I never would have agreed to use this shady company. Don't trust Jeremy. His "word" is no good.

Picked us up from Winthrop and carried us to the Epicentre in Charlotte. Pros: we didn't have to drive. Cons: Driver apparently had to assist another driver as we had to wait to get picked up and the bus had electrical problems. Not impressed with the driver, service or the bus.

Ragin Uptown is awesome...we didn't have to meet them anywhere...They came to us. We each paid about $30 and had the bus for 6 hours. We were able to bring our own beer, which for us that's all we really need. :) It was for my friend's birthday who came from Ohio and she had never seen something like that. She thought the idea was great. I think we paid for only one or 2 clubs to get in but the rest were free. No one had to drive home and the driver took everyone to their own houses at the end of the night. Over all it was a cool experience.

At the risk of sounding like everyone else I have had a very similar experience with this HORRIBLE company as well!!! I hired this company to drive a sorority function in which we have to have transportation because of our national rules. So when I received a call at 7:30 (which was when they were supposed to pick us up) saying that the bus had broken down and that they were not coming I was livid. They proceeded to ask me if i knew of any bus companies I could call to pick us up! He said he would call me back once they had worked something out and when he did he still had no back up plan. But he ever so graciously offered to return HALF of the down payment which is ridiculous since they offered us absolutely no service at all! Even if you have already put a payment down on the bus I would advise you to lose the money if you can't get it back and look else where for your business. At the last minute we hired taxi's to take us there which was time consuming and expensive so we could enjoy what little bit of the party we have had left. DON'T RISK YOUR PARTY!!

There should be something on there that allows you to put ZERO starts for that is what they are worth! ZERO! I feel sorry for my friend that planned a wonderful, awesome birthday party for his wife a great friend of mine. DOT is being notified about the major citiations they had. After being an hour late and not getting kind of call to inform us that it was to be late or what is going on it finally showed up. It broke down on the way to the house to pick us up. Then broke down on the way home. The bus should have had proper lights that worked on the back of the bus, it didn't and it should have had some flares or reflectors, it didn't. So basically it put all of our lives in danger because the company didn't do what it was suppose to do! And because there were no flares or proper working lights we all had to stand out in the 20 degree weather for over and hour before the other bus arrived. They should NOT be in business.

Before the nightmare started...the idea of a party bus driving a large group of us out to celebrate a good friend's big birthday was amazing! How great that we can sit back and not worry about drinking and having a good time because the safe driving is being taken care of..........And then the nightmare began!
I will even ignore the fact that the bus broke down on it's way to pick us all up and should never have been on the road. I will ignore the fact that the driver was completely unprofessional both in how he was dressed, how he spoke and didn't speak and how he knew nothing of how the bus operated or what to do in an emergency which is exactly what we found ourselves in that night.
I will not ignore the danger the driver and this company put us all in. Broken down on the side of a highway with no power, no lights and 18 degrees outside. Never once were we even informed of a problem until a few of us that did decide to stay sober realized what was going on. Even then though, the driver was no more helpful than throwing an ice cube into a volcano to cool it off. 30 people (most of them had been drinking) either on a blacked out bus with no power or standing on the side of a highway in the dark has such unthinkable possible consequences that I cannot believe that this company is not already in a law suit or just been shut down. Not to mention how it is unacceptable to take almost 2 hours to have back up help arrive and never even receive an apology for how things had gone.
I now have a bad cold, a ruined pair a leather boots, a hatred for this company and lawyer to get involved.
Please don't use them. Price has nothing to do with anything. Safety and Reliability and maybe some common sense and decency would have been nice but apparently too much to ask for in a transportation company that advertises on their website "There is no safer way to party". Yeah Right!
What a NIGHTMARE!

My husband spent a lot of money on this company to plan an awesome party for my 40th birthday. The bus was supposed to be at our house at 7:00 pm to give us enough time to get to Jokers up in Mooresville by 8:00, well, 7:30 rolled around and no bus and NO PHONE CALL. Finally my husband called the company and apparently the bus brok down on the side of the road and was being fixed. Didn't end up arriving until 8:00 which made us late. Then, to make things worse, on our way home, the bus breaks down on the side of the road. There was no emergency flares or anything on the buss and the back lights were out. We were on a major road and had to evacuate the bus for our safety. We were all standing outside for an hour in 20 degree weather, some of us had no coats on. Finally after 30 minutes a state trooper pulled up behind us with his lights. Many of us had children to get home to and babysitters who were waiting on us. This company refuses to give us a refund and I will never use this company again. Not worth my hard earned money or safety.

I flew in from philly to celebrate with friends in a "safe" way. It was the most horrendous night out experience of our lives. The bus broke down on the way to pick us up, which pushed us back over 1 hour on our reservations. For a group of 30, this was a significant hit to the restaurant and to us trying to get to our venue. Next, on the way home the bus broke down again, there were NO SAFETY FLARES OR SAFETY PRECAUTIONS ON THE BUS. Everything had died, therefore there were no lights on the back of the bus. In 20 degree weather, we were stranded on the side of the highway, many without coats or warm shoes...we were there for 1.5 hours. It was after midnight, and finding other forms of transportation was impossible. They refused to refund the money of the party sponsors, were non-responsive on their phone calls, and just overall they practice bad business. Don't risk your safety by using this company.

I think I speak for all 40 of us in our group. Ragin' Uptown is without a doubt the best way to experience the nightlife in Charlotte! Our driver was prompt, professional and hilarious! He took great care of us all night...and even ran errands to go get more stuff we needed for the bus. The bus was awesome with a great atmosphere and sound system. We were treated like celebrities at every bar and club we bounced around to. This was my 5th or 6th time out with Ragin' Uptown and I have already called to book my husbands birthday party this month. A five hour rental only cost each person less than what we would have paid for one cover charge at a club (which we never had to pay!) I would recommend this experience to anyone and challenge anyone who hasn't rented a bus for any occasion to do it! I think they have 15 buses and limo's to choose from! I have loved every bus they have ever sent us. I love Ragin' Uptown!

This party bus was the worst experience. The driver dropped us off BLOCKS away from where we were supposed to be going, we were promised VIP status at the clubs to get in, and we were told we wouldn't have to pay to get in.
We didn't get in VIP and yep, we had to pay to get in. I contacted the owner, who has NO customer service skills whatsoever, and blames everyone except for himself. I will never, ever use this service again, I would rather take a taxi.

They don't know how to communicate...

If it rains or is windy - no BOAT RIDE for you - and NO MONEY BACK!!!!

Was promised coolers and ice. None provided. After leaving the house we got 1 mile before the bus broke down. We spent an hour in the parking lot of BB&T waiting for an answer as to what was wrong. They then put us all back on and drove us down, no lights, no air! We had to wait at our first stop until the bus was fixed. WAY OVER PRICED! Horrible in returning calls.
This is my fourth experience and the worst. Had fun about 7 years ago when they started, had a running bus, and were not over priced. Over the last few years its gotten worse and this tops it all off!

I have had lots of fun times on the Ragin uptown party bus. They will come pick you up from your location, and take you ?bar-hopping?. Sometimes, there will be other groups on the bus, but if your group is big enough they will let you have it exclusively. It is a great way to go out and hit the town without having to hire a designated driver or worry about how you will be getting home. The price is good, and I always have fun.
