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!

A lot of fun. Long wait.

This was a lot of fun. You do need to be 48", so not all kids can race. The wait can be pretty long because there are a limited number of racers allowed in the track for each... read more

Celebrated my sons 16th birthday with family and teen boys. Everyone had a blast!!! Booked one of their race packages and it did not disappoint. I wish I could have remembered names but the ladies at the front counter and the gentleman inside the track area that gave the instructions and race rules were wonderful. They were very pleasant and... More

This was a lot of fun. You do need to be 48", so not all kids can race. The wait can be pretty long because there are a limited number of racers allowed in the track for each race. A bit pricey, but fun for an occasional party.

The carts were very fun to race around but I was only able to do a couple of races started to get dizzy. Oh well age will prevail. LOL!! Try it you will love the scaled down racing!

I had a go-cart on the family farm when I was a kid. This place is great. The track is indoor. Carts are electric. Acceleration is great. The carts are well maintained.

We were very impressed with the layout, the cleanliness, the safety features (they can keep kids from going too fast when appropriate), and the cars. All very professional. Most importantly, the kids loved driving (and the grownups want to). We are an F1 fan family, so this was perfect for a 9 and an 11 year old.

This facility located down a musty street also very near sky high, is a nice facility and a great family adventure but, needs some improvements. First off, when we entered the building we heard the sound of go carts whizzing round the track. It was a nice sound. When we got to the front of the line, almost the first... More

We got a flyer at the airport saying buy 2 get 1 free, so what we thought was $40 for 3 people to race. Instead it was $40 for 1 person to race 3 times. It Was not clear at all that this was per person and I am 100% sure the owners just wand to make money and do... More

We had so much fun there and highly recommend. The kids really got into it after the first few laps and were getting better with each lap after. As for the adults, it goes a lot faster than we expected, so that added to the adrenaline rush. Really had fun!

Visited with my office colleagues for taking the battery operated karts on a spin ... Karts are pretty fast and the course is loads of fun. What i did not like, is the initial registration process. I'm not sure if they use the email ids for spamming, as i never gave them a correct one :)

After 80 YMCA fathers, sons, and daughters took on average 30 minutes to register (which they used our emails to send SPAM) and sign legal forms, we waited 3 hours in line to ride for 10 minutes in electric cars that brokedown and computers that broke down with no refunds or apologies. I would NOT recommend this for corporate events.... More
