Went here with the guys and we had a blast. The cars are fast and it was something different that I hadn't done before. Its a little pricey but it is something you should try if you enjoy this type of stuff.

My boyfriend and I had a great time! We pretty much had a race to ourselves which was great because I'm new to this stuff!! They have and introduction video and a safety meeting before your race. The employees were all very helpful

We actually ended up going here for a birthday because one of the members of our party was in a wheelchair and this location has hand controlled go karts which is a rare find. I would recommend checking ahead to make sure this cart is in working order because they only have the one and sometimes it may not be... More

We came here for a company outing. Did the "Grand Prix" package, which consisted of 3 races (practice, qualifying, and race). Staff was super helpful, place is very clean and well maintained. The karts themselves were fast (we were told up to 45mph) and fun. Learning the track was difficult but very very fun. Staff kept very good control on... More

Went here for a birthday and overall it was a great experience. It was definitely helpful purchasing the yelp deal that was $22 for arrive and drive. I would have definitely gone a for a second race if it was a cheaper, if it was $15 per race then more likely to run another round. After discussing with the group,... More

I grew up in the south where go karting was something we did for fun just because. Came here with a group of friends and our boys. If you want to make the best of your time, go early and take alot of money. One race was $30 and each subsequent race was $25. We had to wait an hour... More

Staff friendly, safe, had two races each. One by ourselves ..Great! One with slow racers, tight track, hard to pass safely...note, if u plan on returning by the $55 membership. You get one free on that date and one free on your birthday, then $20 each race after saving $5 a race so def worth it. Sign up for all... More

Went here with a good friend and we had a blast. We went on a weekday evening and it wasn't crowded at all. In fact at one point we had the entire track to ourselves. The staff is very friendly and they have a good training video before you take your go kart seat.
