The karts ran at fast speed and the rules were simple yet structured. If you're looking for excitement, high speed, and safety, I highly recommend K1 Speed Torrance. The price is approximately fifty dollars per ride which includes an estimate of 14 laps per person. Finally, the attraction is indoors and offers some snacks.

Best experience I've had at Go Karts. 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 handicapped so that you have a chance to familiarize yourself with... More

my husband and 15 year old drove three races. The times and places are all computerized and you get a printout of your performance. This seems like a safe place and well run. The staff was very nice and one of the guys went out of our way to find something my son lost. Located in a commercial park. I'd... More

I took my twin 16 year old girls to the Torrence K1 Speed facility for some family fun. I had never been to any of the K1 Speed facilities but I had been to the M2B Cart facility in Sylmar once. The two facilities are very similar and in fact may be owned by the same parent company. We purchased... More

Had to register on the spot and waited for like 10mins before we get into our games.. Speed of the kart was really fast, gives a really good experience! Receives a coloured printout of your results at the end of the game, detailing your records as well as how you fared against your opponents~
