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

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.
