Owner description: The premise behind the creation of K1 Speed was to offer enthusiasts and amateurs alike an authentic and genuine racing experience in a safe, comfortable, accessible and perhaps most importantly, unique environment. Utilizing advanced European electric karts and indoor asphalt tracks, K1 Speed quickly developed a reputation as being fun and exciting, and our growth has been continuous since we first opened our doors. In addition to our Arrive and Drive racing option, which allows individuals to visit our indoor karting centers anytime and experience the thrill of racing, we also offer racing leagues and a variety of packages for corporate events and group parties, which have proven quite popular. To meet the needs of customers and kart racing enthusiasts who demand more, we also have a Pro Shop - K1 Race Gear - which carries everything that a karter might need to compete at the track. At K1 Speed, our goal is to be synonymous with karting, and we think that we are on our way!

I love K1, it's fun and great for teenagers and adults alike, not for little kids. It's a little pricey for what you get but it's fun. They have some food and beer available as well.

Good fun except for the very end where some idiot kept hitting me. Best to go when there are less people or you have a group reservation. The racing is good fun. Certainly worth doing once.

We have been to several kids birthday parties here. Kids have a blast as well as the parents who drive. The biggest downside to this place is if you want to go with a friend or two. We have tried to go on numerous occasions and have been informed that it will be a two hour wait!! They need to... More

Good location and affordable - blow off some steam and drive fast (legally!). One note: if you are tall or big-boned, you may have sore hips the next day. The cars are small. My husband is a big guy and was bruised, but it was totally worth it!

Typically would take my son and his friends here and would watch them speed around the track, but I tried it and had fun too! We took a group from the office here for a team building event and had a blast - watch the competitive side come out.

Because of the cost, this is a special occasion place for our family but both my son and hubby enjoy it in equal measure. The karts go pretty fast, but the place makes safety a priority. The only bummer is that kids and adults can't race at the same time, so it's wise to have the kids bring a friend... More

Another great track/facility by K1 Speed. Having thoroughly enjoyed their Torrance location, this location was just as fun. Everyone from the staff at the front desk to the track marshals and managers were welcoming, friendly and helpful. The karts are fast and fun - after your first race. I found out that for your first race, the karts are slightly... More

This is about as fast as you will ever go in a go kart. search for coupons before going to save 5-10 bucks per race. I went here with a group of friends for a birthday and we all had a blast... each lap is recorded to the mili-second and the course is challenging and the karts are fast and... More

It's a cool place if you want to drive like a maniac and not get a speeding ticket, but if your tall, beware. The design on the go cart seats are not for anyone tall, I'm 6'5 and after two races, had a very large and painful road rash burn on shoulder blade from rubbing on the seat that took... More
