We were in the area for a hockey tournament and I booked an event for some fun between games. K1 was easy to work with and well organized. The kids and coaches all had a great time racing and we got some fun pictures at the end. It's not cheep but I think it was worth it for a special... More

Nice indoor facility, fast cars and a decent place to hang out as an onlooker. Nice arcade, and snack bar. Love that the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners got trophies. Great family fun.

We had a corporate event at this place and it was awesome. Be a little bit careful though as you are trying to set the new land speed record. One of my buddies took a turn to fast and spun out and got T-boned by the dude behind him. Pretty serious neck injury that caused him to miss work and... More

I went to this K1 Speed location on my birthday to check it out and go for a few races. Now I am an AutoX driver and I understand racing is inherently dangerous with the risks involved, especially with many novice drivers around you such as at K1. However as soon as I walk in there's a pretty good impact... More

The place is great for people of all ages. I found that most of the clients were from the early teens to 30’s, but I had a great time as well. There are a couple of courses and has a slow option for those “junior” racers (pre-teens). It is not cheap as you will want to do more than one... More

It has always been in my bucket list to try an electric car. So my boyfriend took me to this K1 Speed. One thing I like about this place is that it's age friendly both for kids and adult. After my first 11 laps or there about, I decided to go on another lap. My boyfriend came 3rd and I... More

I have driven a variety of go carts and this place was great. They are electric carts so you do not have the exhaust or noise typically associated with go carting.

I took some of my co-workers from Japan and we had a great time! The cars are fast and handle well. With the full face helmet and low profile you feel like you are in a race car... I wish it w2as a bit closer as I would go more often.

We went on a Saturday around 1pm with 4 people and were racing within about 20 minutes of our sign in process. This is really fun competition. The carts are electric, there are no gas fumes, and the carts are quiet. The only sound you hear are screeching tires! The carts are quick and really give you a taste of... More

Super fast electric carts. Had a great time with a private race for a birthday party. They can and do throttle your speed which is kind of lame but as long as you drive well they tend to bump you up.
