I went with my kids, and my sisters family. The slower karts are just that slower. The two seat karts are not really 2 seater's . They had a board for the passenger to sit on. The... read more

I wish we had read the reviews before wasting our time going here!! We went purely off the brochures - which are great & congrats to their marketing person. It is dingy & smelly & probably full of diseases. The carts are slow & again dirty & smelly. The only positive is that it is cheap.

We wanted to go gocarting on Monday August 25, 2014. I had checked the web site for times and dates opened and thought we were good to go but when we arrived there was a hand written sign stating they were closed till the Labor Day weekend. Would have been nice to know ahead of time and we would have... More

This is a place like many I have been to around the country, but most it the amusements are older, need repair, and not that fun anymore. I would recommend going to do something else, the black hills are full of great things to do

This was the worst part of our recent trip to Rapid City. The go carts are extremely outdated, slow, (yes even the extreme carts were slow) and look nothing like what is pictured on brochures or on their website. The facility was dingy and dirty and had nothing more than a bunch of cheap arcade games and a very poorly... More

I've been on my fair share of go-karts, but this is probably the best go-kart experience I have ever had, at least since I have had my license (I'm 30, and the joy of go-karts quickly faded once I obtained my license). These karts are awesome. If I recall correctly, the staff said they can reach 45+ mph. What a... More

Flags and Wheels has various activities to do. Cleanliness was ok. Customer service was pretty good. Staff service was good. The location to find it is a little hard. They have various arcade games, go karts, battling cages, basketball hoops. Last visit was in 2003.

This is an off-the-beaten-path place near downtown Rapid. Look at the map if you're not familiar with the area because it's a little awkward to find. We were there once about 5 years ago so we managed to find it again. It's a bit run down and dirty, but we kind of expected that for a go-kart place. Husband loves... More

Exceeded our expectations for fun! We went there twice during our stay and the kids were begging for a 3rd. Yes, when you walk in the building- it will look a little run down and it's hard to find but once you get passed that...loads of fun! Great value- $5/pp for regular go-karts and $15/pp for extreme karts which can... More
