About
Swansea's only indoor karting track. With karts for all ages and abilities and tracks to challenge all types of drivers - we know you'll have a great time karting with us! From arrive and drive to corporate events, we can do it all. For arrive & drive, please call us first so we can advise on available time slots throughout the day. Every driver is provided with a helmet, overalls, gloves and a detailed safety briefing. Drivers will have to make a one time purchase of a balaclava for hygiene reasons - but they're only £2.00each and its yours to keep and bring back next time! Along with 2 great tracks (1 main track for petrol karts and smaller track for electric kiddi karts), we also have a big games room with driving simulators, a pool table, air hockey table, and a cafe serving light refreshments and snacks. Please note, we do not allow open shoes and we have a strict no alcohol or drugs policy - offending drivers will be removed!

Closed but they couldn't be bothered to tell anyone.
Oct 2021
Arrived at the venue at twelve o'clock today with a twelve year old Grandson excitedly looking forward to his first go-kart ride only to find the place deserted. No notice of temporary closure that I can see on their web site. Tried to ring them but all you get is number unreachable. How long does it take to put a notice on the website home page?

Disappointed
Feb 2020
Arrived with my son and grandchildren to a very quiet venue, nobody in the junior section and two people driving in the adult section. Waited for ten minutes for two already members to get checked in. We were then told how inundated they were and had we booked, arrive and drive I believe is their motto. Sooooooo not true,(no I didn’t read the small print on their website). Apparently two members of staff hadn’t turned up and we couldn’t be accommodated. Left with a very frustrated father and two upset children. With Wales economy, can’t believe they would let 80 plus pounds sterling go because of unreliable staff ? Make sure you call and arrive and drive is just meaningless.

Absolutely brilliant

Grandchildren aged 9 and 10 absolutely loved it. 1st time experience of a real petrol engine and real racing. The staff were excellent and ran it safely.

6th Birthday Party
Jul 2019 • Family
Booked this venue with 3 months notice. Everything was paid up and we were assured that everything would be sorted for the day. Manager was friendly and efficient.

The day
A really excited boy ready for his party. Room all set up and looking good for him. The 4 karts sitting on the track ready. 24 kids split into teams of 4 as per agreed.

Party started 15 minutes later than scheduled because they were “busy” with the adult track. 3 of the cars worked. 1 car stuck in slow mode as the wiring was wrong. First run out, a further car completely stopped working, leaving 2 working cars.

My little boy absolutely devastated.

Absolutely no way in this world were the cars checked prior to our arrival.

Waste of time, waste of money, waste of a day, waste of a party. Absolutely no chance of me returning.

We can only apologise once again for the experience you had with us. The karts had just come back from a £2000 refurbishment from the manufacturers, as I had explained would be happening when you booked. Your party was the first time that the karts had run after being delivered back to us. We had no idea that the karts would not be working, they were checked for a short time after being delivered to us and worked fine. It was a complete shock to us that they broke down. We did apologise profusely on the day and you did receive a full refund from us. I know this didn't help with the disappointment on the day, but it really was completely out of our control.

It was my boys' first time karting. Booking was easy, easy to find, friendly staff. Allowed them to choose their F1 names too! The boys had an absolutely amazing time and can't wait to come again. Good facilities, a cafe and a games room as well. Great to have print outs of their times. They have not stopped talking about it since they left!

Perfect for groups of friends wanting a bit of friendly competition or for family day outs! Indoors so doesn't matter about the weather. Reasonably priced and the hosts are very pleasant. Kit appeared clean and everything was checked properly before starting. It was my first time go karting but I believe the course was varied and I didn't get bored of it after my 25 minute session! All times are recorded and copies were offered to the whole group. Podium to have pictures and lockers available.

Overall a fab experience and already looking to make another booking!

Went to Skidz for the third time today. Booking is easy, people who work there are professional and friendly.

Track has been changed up a bit since I last went, few more twists and turns. Karts look well maintained.

All in all, I recommend it.
