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.

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
