Went here on vacation and we had a lot of fun and such competition with each other. Of course the boys won over all us girls but we talked about it for days. They give you sheets of each race what you did and how to improve so it was interesting to see what to do besides "go faster". I... More

Went here with our 10 year old son on a Friday night. The place was busy. We had to wait over an hour to race. I'm happy that there were some junior racers as this was our son's first time to go kart. The course was fun and we had an overall great time. It was nice that they had... More

This was definitely on our list of top things to do in Tampa/clearwater. HIGHLY recommend for both kids and adults. the prices are fairly inexpensive and the thrill makes it SO worth it. 5/5 for some fast paced fun

Nice facility and authentic racing carts. The girls selling the tickets were happy to help. The young men running the carts seemed annoyed to help the customers but did their required job, not a spoiler but worth noting. Racing the carts is a hoot.

My girls are 9 and 10 and the 10 yr. old was very nervous to drive. It was a slow day so they had a chance to just drive the two of them on the track. REAL SLOW. but then the bug got them and they tried with two other kids they didn’t know and they drove like Schumacher. They... More

First time carting, got the three race package. First race only got 13 out of 16 laps. Last race had several mechanical issues with other carts. Race was stopped twice, one time a cart had to be changed out. Fun when it worked, but a little disappointing.

If you like go cart racing, you will like this track. It's a timed track so it doesn't matter where in line you start the racing. There is a height restriction of 52" because of the speed of the carts, but if you and your kids can ride then you won't be disappointed. Only thing that I didn't really like... More

My son got the 3 ride package and thoroughly enjoyed himself even though It took over 2 hours to do the 3 rides but it was worth it. If you are in a hurry, do not do all 3 rides since the adult rides are alternated with the kids rides. I was misinformed on how long we would be there... More

First time at go carting and I am 70. Went with grandson 15 and had wonderful time. New electric carts, and they can move. Staff fantastic, with safety most important. Place got busier as day went but still no more than 8 cars on track. Very impressed with print outs for each race to see how you did. Will certainly... More

My son and I visited. We enjoyed the races. The cars were having some issues. It took some time between races. The cars were fast some of the other drivers. We're having trouble in the turns.
