We had such a great time! Worth the money, so much more than miniature golf version bumper cars. These little carts move FAST!

One of the favorites go cart places. Octane racing is pricey but it's well worth the money. It can get busy there but they have pools tables and restaurants/ bar. I highly recommend it to anyone.

We visited Octane Raceway while we were at Spring Training. We visited on Friday but the wait for a kid race was 1 hour, so we made a reservation for my son and came back the next day, Saturday. My son had a race time of 6:20 and 6:40, and than we had a baseball game at Salt River Fields... More

Our son and daughter-in-law were visiting from Montana and racing karts was high on their list of things to do. We went on Friday afternoon and had our first race at 4:20. Everybody was really excited and looking forward to the fun. But it wasn't much fun because there was a group of young men who were very aggressive and... More

As expected, it is a fun place for kids and adults. Pricey, expect to drop $100, but they can remotely throttle down the same cars so smaller kids can have their own races without worry. Safe and clean and much better than the smaller track over by Kierlands on Scottsdale Rd. Felt like real cart racing. Only negative is the... More

Kids that have a driver license get to race faster cars than those under driving age. Even the slower cars are fun in particular when challenging family and friends. There were groups of adults there for group challenges as well. Fun place and not too difficult of a course.

These carts are quick. The track set up is awesome and plenty challenging. The staff ran the heats like clockwork. Very good at keeping it fun and safe. Lots of other activities available too; video games, pool, Segways, etc.
