Each one of the race tracks is a little too run down and the cars are ALL lacking the appropriate oomph to make this an exciting destination for anyone over the age of 12.

During the winter months we may open before the normal season begins to offer locals and visitors something to do on the weekends when the weather is better than usual. I am sorry that you visited this time of year as we strive to offer the best go kart experience for all of our customers. We offer the Adult Speed... More

You can buy a bracelet with 5 or 10 rides (noted as best values), but the really fast car track, slingshot ride and mini golf are extra. They don't have enough fast tracks for adults and older kids. Lots of kiddie rides so If you have very young kids (under 10 years) they will probably have a great time.

Not sure what the deal was this year, but many drivers, including school aged kids, were driving like banshees - bumping other drivers and being overly aggressive. After being terrorized by one father and his crazy son, they finally got banned from two of the tracks. We were happy to see that the staff took the rules seriously. We have... More

My family and I went to Motor World Sunday, August 21, 2013 and had a lot of fun. When we got there, it was not crowded at all, we got there around 3:30 P.M. We went on all the go-karts and the bumper boats and had a blast. It was a little expensive, but it was fun.

We took 5 kids here, got four of them the wristband to do 10 rides. We could only use 5 of the rides because we were there for 3 hours and that's how many rides we got in 5 hours time. Hardly anyone was working the games, and the games are a rip off. Hardly anyone is working the rides,... More

this was a total money pit. I would never take the family to this park again. It was so expensive that little could be done on a budget. how disappointing to the kids when I had to say I just could not afford that place for longer then we were already there.

My wife and I took our four kids (9, 8, 5, 2) there as we were looking for a change of pace. Saturday afternoon it was fairly empty (and it wasn't a hot day) so there were no lines. I think we spent more then we should have and that is because the ticketing upfront was a bit confusing. The... More

We recently went to Motor World thinking it would be a fun day for the kids. First, it's very expensive, especially for what you get. But, worse than that, the staff are VERY unfriendly. I had several unpleasant experiences that day, but the worst was when my son was over-heated and we tried to get a cup of ice water... More

Go karts should be fun. All you really need is a go kart and a track. But in this case, the slow karts, the very quick races (about 3 short laps), the uninterested or unfriendly staff, the dirty and unkempt place and the high price. 40$ for 5 very short races. Its not worth it...

I am sorry you had a bad experience. I really wish you had tried more than one track as we have a large variety of tracks and types of karts. If you only road the Road Racer track, which is 3 laps long on a 1/2 mile track. And if you felt the karts were to slow for your liking,... More

3 of us- wrist Band for 5 races $90plus. If you have teenagers do just the fast carts as the slow ones won't be fun for them. But was a fun evening.
