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!  « less

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

We had a corporate event at this facility. The carts are ridiculously fast and the course is a lot of fun. This was my first opportunity to ride electric go carts and I was really impressed with their agility and speed. We had a couple of good spin outs and I was surprised with the bruises I had that day.... More

Did a team building event here...it was good but a bit disorganized. Think if they market themselves as a great place for team building - they should provide a little catering in that spirit. However - it was a blast and the cars get some speed!

I went with my two teenage sons and had a great time. We went indoor go carting in Germany and loved it, but the cars were gas operated and the fumes were pretty bad. The electric carts here are just as fast! The one safety feature I like was that the staff could remotely shut down all of the carts... More

My 18 yr. old son and I went to K1 Speed in Santa Clara in March 2012. It was so much fun! I would definitely do it again. We were able to use coupons found in local brochures and also took advantage of a special pricing deal they had. The speed of the racers was good, the track was challenging,... More
