I took 4 boys to The Pit to celebrate the end of summer (ages 10-13). I found a deal on their website that we could choose three activities for $13.50 per kid (this didn't include the go carts). We chose laser tag, bumper cars, and 20 tokens for the arcade. They had a blast! It was a fun way to... More

I take my grandsons and stepsons here. We love the arcade and the laser tag although it is pretty expensive. They also liked the go carts which is also expensive. The staff at the arcade were nicer than the staff at the go carts. He acted like he hated his job. We played putt putt and I loved the girl... More

I took my grandson & bought 3 races at $18.00 each. He had a great time. We also paid $5.00 for rock climbing but when he finished the races there was no staff at the wall & at that point he was too tired to wait while I went to find staff so we just left.

I'm glad your Grandson enjoyed the racing. My staff has been instructed to make sure that customers know that if there isn't someone at the climbing wall to let one of the track marshals know when you're headed over there after racing. I apologize that this didn't happen and will remind my staff to ensure that when a climbing wall... More

My grandson loved this place! He had so much fun getting geared up and settling into his racecart. I enjoyed watching him trying to go as fast as he could around the winding tracks without wiping out.

Took Grandkids to go race and play putt putt-arcades 10-13-14 years old. Really kind of cool place if there was a bit more supervision. Two of the three wanted to race the go karts. 10 year old girl and 14 year old boy took a 5 minute safety course video and this is one of the places I blame myself.... More

We try to stress that these are not amusement park rides, but real racing karts in all our advertising and website. The area that your grand daughter ended up in was actually an infield area and not part of the track, so there was no danger to her or other drivers. The track was designed that way. it is impactical... More

Kids loved racing the carts. The Pit also has Laser Tag, Bumper Cars, Black Light Putt-Putt as well as other arcade games and attractions. The big attraction is the carts though. Both kids had a blast and I didn't see anyone exit the carts without a smile on their face. Great spot for an afternoon of fun!

My kids like to go to the Pit for the Indoor blacklight mini golf and the arcade games. They also have laser tag and the kart racing. We have also been to a birthday party there which was great.

Expensive for non members. Staff of very young people did not enforce the no bumping rule probably because they were regulars.

This is a good place for the kids to be able to have some fun !! Lots of games , pool tables , air hockey and golf !!! Lots of steps to get to the arcade and to get tickets for the cars but it is well worth the time to go !!!
