The staff is young with little to no experience dealing with the public. They did NOTHING to assist in hosting the party. Not even a smile could be found amongst the several teenagers running the place. If you are considering having a party here I would recommend having it elsewhere. Hint to management: Get some young adults who are personable... More

6 friends and I heard that this was the REAL DEAL indoor cart racing experience. So while on vacation in Clearwater Beach we headed on over to the Clearwater location (there is also on in Tampa). Rather than doing the open race, we opted for a Grand Prix, which meant it would be a private experience for just our group.... More

SPEEDSTER I’ve never felt tempted to rocket past 70mph signs but I had a great time here. I don’t think I ever hit 50mph as the signs claim (the paths are too windy) but it sure FELT like I was flying. I was bumped several times by other carts and even tapped the corner of the rails—I barely felt it... More

If you enjoy watching GP racing, fast cars, or even your garden variety go-carts, you'll love this place. My 16 year old son and another 40ish friend ran several races and had a blast. Every cart in every race is timed individually and your race is really you vs. the clock so it really doesn't matter if you're first or... More

Today was my son's first time at the Clearwater. In general, he had a good time but I found their quoted lap number highly misleading. First, my son was often last out onto the track since the cars move single file onto it and he was placed in the last car several times. At first I thought that was no... More

We visited Tampa Bay Grand Prix for an afternoon for our 11 year old son. He participated in 3 races and had a blast. If you have more than one child, this attraction can be kind of expensive. The staff was friendly and helpful and very attentive to safety during the races. This is a great outing for families and... More

We get here- register, wait, and just as we're called, an employee "Dannnnng" decided to go out and do 15 laps or so. We wait, with helmets on, in 90 degree weather while she does her laps. That alone is ridiculous. There is a wait and an employee is out doing laps by themselves while paying customers wait in the... More
