I was in NC for an extended weekend with some old college friends, and we decided to come here for some fun on Saturday night. We did not end up riding the go-karts, if you do not have reservations you'll most likely have to wait 1-2 hours; but they offered races for kids and adults so it ranged from all... More

I live in Mooresville and had never been to The Pit; so my rating is solely based on my overall impression of the facility. First -- lots of Stairs! Stairs to get in and then more stairs to check in! I checked out the Black Light Golf -- hmmm the area was behind a curtain... There's a GREAT open area... More

My group went for the black light golf. It was a great course, but here are some of the drawbacks. There are a lot, lot of stairs to climb. This was a challenge for one in our party. If you go, thinking you can just drive one of the karts, there is a class and certification to go through first.... More

I’m glad you enjoyed our black light mini golf. Your review indicates you visited us in July 2014. The later part of that month we migrated to a new computer system that greatly simplifies the registration process. We now only require your name and birth date. We do have a wheel chair ramp from the parking lot to the track... More

I had an incredible time with a large group at this facility. We used a large meeting room in the morning for some meetings, then had track time booked in the afternoon for a group of about 15. We had some initial laps to familiarize ourselves with the track and karts, then after a short break, had time trials to... More

Paid for a 1 year membership season pass online and as it turns out that is only good for a discount on ONLY Lazer Tag and Go Karts and 1 free ride 1 time...Talk about false advertising!!! Very disappointed!! The young girls working there were clueless and no help answering any questions. I didn't think the indoor track was ventilated... More

We’re sorry your experience didn’t meet your expectations. I assume you are referring to the Group On deal. It is advertised as the annual membership plus 1 race for $19.00. It does not say “season pass”. The membership is normally $15 and a single member race is $20, so you received a $35 value for $19. Membership entitles you to... More

Spent a Sunday afternoon at a birthday party. It's a little on the pricy side, but kids had fun. The one complaint I had is that there is a LONG wait between the "driver safety" course and when the kids actually get to get into a car. The kids are so excited to get started and it's disappointing that they... More

We’re sorry that the party did not meet your expectations. We pride ourselves on the value of our party packages. Other venues start their packages at $300+. For $220 your group raced in our high speed racing karts, played laser tag, shared 100 tokens in the arcade, had 2 – 16” pizzas from Papa John’s, soda, and a private room... More

Drove the karts but seemed the prep for the drive was a bit much. Have done other karts without all the prep. Not many arcade games. Batting cages were rented out. A little disappointed over all

Don T, Manager at The Pit Indoor Kart Racing, responded to this review

We’re sorry your experience at The Pit wasn’t what you expected. We run high speed racing karts and the “Prep” is pretty standard for this type of activity. Our insurance company and the State of North Carolina require the registration process. We have edited the safety briefing to a short 3 minute video that covers all the essentials for a... More

Four of us went here after our business trip concluded. The carts are just as advertised and more. These are not toys for little kids. These things move. Great adventure for a family with teenagers and adults alike. Lots of fun. The print out of your lap times at the end is very interesting.

Very exciting carting, if not a little scary. Those carts really boogie. I thought i was going pretty fast until a few youngsters blew by me around the turns. The paintball room is cool as well. Lots of electronic games add to the experience. Neat place for parties.
