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.

My department took about 30 people to this place for a team building event. We had food/drinks in their private room and then began racing. The karts are fairly fast but some faster than others! I won qualifications but then got a much slower car and didn't fare well in the first race. The facility was wonderful and the karts... More

I've only been to K1 speed a couple of times, but have used Groupons each time. Otherwise, it would cost too much for what it is. K1 is an exciting and fun time! I'm not too good on the track here, but still have a good time with it. The staff is really knowledgeable and helpful. They give you good... More

I LOVVE go kart racing and this place is awesome. It's indoor and the tracks are fun. They are small and they rarrely change so after a while its boring but the cars work well. The MAJOR downside of this place is that they run these little tournaments and if you get into a group with a bunch of teenagers,... More

Not interested in all the team events, but fun way to let young people get feel of driving a moving vehicle.

My husband and I spent some time here and really enjoyed racing each other here so much he brought back his niece and nephew several times so they could also enjoy it. My only issue was after driving the track 3 times it got a little boring. With their movable, impact safe walls this should be an easy change if... More

We bought some groupons that we shared amongst us, and the five of us raced each other. It was so much fun (and surprisingly tiring) that we'll do it again soon. Very well done, professional, and seemed very safe to me. So it definitely is a great team builder. You probably don't want to do it by yourself - take... More
