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!

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 !!!

**Be aware that there are a lot of stairs to climb to get to the registration and ticketing. I returned to The Pit after a year to play black-light mini-golf and saw some brand new bumper cars. After golf, I went to get tickets for the bumper cars, but they were $5 each for a 3-minute ride. Too expensive for... More

With temperatures over 95 degrees this past week, it was time to take a little break from Lake Norman and find a destination with our kids, ages 10 and 13. We aren't regular go-kart enthusiasts so The Pit was a step up for us with helmets required, higher speeds and separate racing for adults and kids. The kids had a... More

Went with extended family (4 adults and 5 kids) to the Pit as a fun little excursion on a hot summer day! Processing - They ask EVERY person to log on to their system (computer) that will be getting or experiencing anything at the park. Not a fan. Then the pricing is very vague and what we considered expensive. You... More

As someone who is a frequent go-kart racer, I do not like The Pit. I haven't been back for quite some time because there are better alternatives in this area. The starts are spread which makes for zero racing. I get that this style of kart racing is a time based style of "racing,' but honestly the majority of people... More

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

I'm sorry your experience wasn't better. Our races are time based, as are the majority of indoor tracks. We send karts out with just enough space in between to prevent accidents in the first couple of turns. We put up to 12 karts on the track at one time, so there is plenty of racing to be had. Our track... More

This place had me wondering when I saw an empty parking lot, but we looooved it!! What a great idea for a huge old building. We raced,played mini golf, shot cannons at each other, and played on the bumper cars. Best part, we had the whole place to ourselves! Perfect date night.

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
