Went as a Father's Day activity with husband and grown children. Raced around the well-maintained track before heading over to play mini-golf. A nice break from frequenting bars downtown. We had lots of laughs and a memorable visit. Great activity for groomsmen who need to kill a little time.

I can't lie, this is a great little track. Not the biggest place but the cars get up and go. I had a blast there. No complaints here. If your in town for a week and you have teenagers....take them here, keep them busy for a little while

My boyfriend and I did four laps around the course and I don't think I stopped laughing once. $20 (in cash, $21 for credit) buys you 4 laps which seemed like the perfect amount of time to enjoy the course. They also have an arcade and miniature golf course.

Pros: The track is a road-course style and in pretty good condition. Helmets are available in various sizes, and I never had to wait more than a couple of minutes to get a car on the track. Trackside help is competent and friendly. Cons: It's expensive-- 12 laps was $52 ($50 if you pay cash), and that's the "value" price/quantity.... More

Really? Too expensive? The Fairmont Chateau Laurier at over $200 a night is not? Gas in Ontario is $4.30 a gallon and the sales tax is 15 percent. This is a Fact. Gas in NY State is $3.70 a gallon and the sales tax is 7.75 percent. This is a Fact. Ontario is obviously more expensive. Your statement that our... More

1 mile track laid out in a Grand Prix fashion which is the most fun type of track, No one like going around in a circle. The price was $6.00 a lap which goes pretty quick when you are having fun. Must be 54" to drive alone. They have dual cars for the smaller riders. Definitely with the stop after... More

My kids and I love visiting the track...I think it's like $20 for 4 trips around which is reasonable for our family. Of course until the kids are a certain height/age they need to travel with an adult, but hey who doesn't need a lookout to let you know someone is on your bumper. Great fun and a must visit... More

Karts was a lot of fun. I felt that it was a bit unsanitary and the employees were very bored with their job. But besides that, it was fine. Overall good experience.

A one mile long race track. We had a ball. It was about 15 of us. They gave a great group rate for all of us. The arcade was cool too. What a fun track. Never been on a track that long before. I will be going back

Like all Go cart attractions seems like it should be longer though this track is a longer track then the average at (one Mile ) long. We enjoyed the track along with video games and having a Sub way sub shop with in makes having a meal to boot. Like all height requirements. You will enjoy

It's a bit pricey but I find that once you get behind the wheel, you never want to stop and leave! I've gone once and I loved it!
