Other than my experience with the cashier, it was really good. My wife, son and I went to take advantage of the lunch time special and arrived at 1:50. By the time I registered the 3 of us on their computer, it was just before 2. I left my wallet and my wife paid for the more expensive race, so... More

Being from out of town, we didn't have coupons or groupons. We did the buy two/get one free, which was apparently per person... But my husband drove once, and both sons drove twice each.... So what the heck was that buy two get one free discount referring to??

I felt like the staff was disinterested in our visit. They didn't go out of their way to make it fun or get anyone pumped up as it was obvious that it was just a job to them. No one was fun at all. You drive around chasing each other and that part is absolutely fun but we probably won't... More

This place is run great. The races get off without hesitation and the racing is fantastic. The group that runs the races are well organized and handle any crash situation quickly and efficiently. A very enjoyable couple of hours.

These cars are fast! It's not cheap, 14 laps for $16.00 or 3 sets of 14 laps for $39.00, but it was a blast! This Go-Kart is indoor and well-maintained. It was an easy 20 minute drive from the Sandpearl resort. We plan to go back when we return again.

We loved this indoor race track! We went during lunch time and got a discount. The carts are fast, and they have it all set up in an organized way.

You have to attend this race at least once in your life. The cars are so close, you can almost touch them. The race environment is fun and exciting. Visitors will find no shortage of places with great views of the race. Bring your family, and your earplugs, but do not miss this race that kicks off the Indy car... More

I took my 13 year old here to introduce him to go cart racing. We had a blast. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The timing - scoring and management of the track is safe and efficient. These are electric go carts which allows the staff to red flag the race by cutting off the power to the cart or... More

...Except for the little kid in our group that kept crashing into the walls that forced us to stop and put the track back together. Not sure what can be done about that, but it was a blast!

I've been to both of their Clearwater and Tampa locations. And I had a blast! Each time my boyfriend and I went, and it is so much fun! Rain of shine, it's a fun activity to do, and it's something different! The karts go really fats, you get a print out at the end of the race to see how... More
