I went with my 14 year old son and husband. We had a blast and are returning there for sure. I purchased a package but if I hadn't it would have been quite expensive for 3. We had to race at 35 mph since our son was only 14 and we wished to race together; if not for the package... More

Definitely a place for any racer to check out. Had a great time racing with everyone and chasing down faster lap times. U can even bring ur own helmet.

I went here with a group of friends while in St. Louis. The electric karts were surprisingly fast and fun to drive. These are serious racing karts that require helmets. They are kind of pricey to race but I had a great time we paid to do it twice. Would come back again.

Went to Pole Position with a few friends for one race and had a blast. Slight wait time but they were efficient. My only complaint was the price but I will probably go again so apparently it's not too terrible.

I took one of my sons there for a scout event and he loved it. Being indoors and using electric go-karts, it was not the typical outdoor, smelly karting experience.

We had our Company Christmas Party here on Sat. 12/14/13. It was a great time. The cars are fast and there is no bad smell from being indoors. The women and men, both enjoyed the competition between each other. They have a room where we had a meal catered. This was an excellent place for a company or family gathering

This place was a big hit for me, when you walk in, it's cool and comfortable. When you first walk in, you notice there are no fumes and its air conditioned!! After you sign up, you will probably have to wait a few races before they call your name, but it's not bad at all. There are tv's to watch... More

This was my first visit to Pole Position although my boys have been there a couple of times. Once you walk in, you hear the high pitch whine from the car's electric motors (which is cool) and some tire chirp. If you are new to this place, the registration is kind of quirky and you go through a sign up... More
