“Fun Work Event”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

My department took about 30 people to this place for a team building event. We had food/drinks in their private room and then began racing. The karts are fairly fast but some faster than others! I won qualifications but then got a much slower car and didn't fare well in the first race. The facility was wonderful and the karts all electric so no exhaust. The worst part was having to wear a helmet but not much you can do about that.

“Pricey, but fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

I've only been to K1 speed a couple of times, but have used Groupons each time. Otherwise, it would cost too much for what it is. K1 is an exciting and fun time! I'm not too good on the track here, but still have a good time with it. The staff is really knowledgeable and helpful. They give you good instructions the first time you go out there.

“Fun place if you dont get stuck with kids”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

I LOVVE go kart racing and this place is awesome. It's indoor and the tracks are fun. They are small and they rarrely change so after a while its boring but the cars work well. The MAJOR downside of this place is that they run these little tournaments and if you get into a group with a bunch of teenagers, you can forget about fun because then it becomes all about MOVE IT OR WE WILL MOVE IT FOR YOU....the track referees are pretty liberal so its easy to smacked into 4 or 5 times in any given race. Just be ready

“Feel for driving”

Not interested in all the team events, but fun way to let young people get feel of driving a moving vehicle.
