great place .not a bad price would recommend the staff are very helpful. the only thing is that they charge for a cheap hat to go inside the helmet which costs nothing ,and they charge 50 pence bit of a rip off if everybody gets charged this price?

Stag do, more like stag don't!

We had an awesome time karting for my mates stag do up here in Newcastle, despite the horrendous customer service! They seemed genuinely annoyed that we were here! We were short a number and instead of negotiating as we had agreed ourselves to split the extra car one of our party had to sit out as they refused it to us! Lovely. They clearly didn't care that we were there and barely spoke to us! Great fun, shame about the employees

Poor value, grim venue

Just expensive for 30 mins wearing tatty old overalls.
Essential to buy one of their balaclava's if you don't happen to have your own!! adds extra costs.
The guy on reception tried to explain/justify a £2 handling charge for 'Debit Card' payments which is a joke given the amount charged.
I nearly didn't take cash as I thought less chance of losing it while doing quite a active event but lucky I actually had enough to pay in cash!! Again another hidden charge.
I have a PDQ card machine and costs for debit cards is pennies not £££'s
Overalls they supply are mostly in shabby well worn condition, so if you want a selfie to look like Lewis Hamilton forget it.
Im pretty decent at Karting and feel the track is decent in the space they have but I'd hate to be there if there's a group booking as I feel it would be a slow task with several Karts with some novice users.
It's not a place I'd go to again

Nice indoor Karting

I bought 6 Groupons advertised as half price deals, it turns out they were only £2 off each person from the over the phone price when I called, but we were happy enough with 50 laps with friendly staff and the track to ourselves on the Sunday, it was very awkward booking process and the suits were in poor condition as the velcro had all gone, but we had a great day and enjoyed ourselves for the money.

Awful experience
Jun 2017 • Friends
Track was poor, kart kept cutting out, overalls were stained and the Velcro didn't work, gloves skanky, had cords the size of a lemon on front tyres and told "don't worry it will be alright, we've run out of tyres" not the best track but still a laugh in the end. Had to pay £2.50 for a balaclava too

Terrible
Jun 2017 • Friends
The track at the top is horrendous, you get thrown around and your whole cart shakes.. nothing you can do to stop it. Staff get fed up when having to help you if you're shoved off, as if it's your fault. Not a very good briefing for first timers, wasn't really told about full power of the carts and have really hurt my back in the process. Cheap suits and a blistered hand from the terrible gloves, won't be coming again.

Never Again
May 2017 • Friends
I visited here with friends recently and I found
the track martial to be very rude and unprofessional. He accused me a number of times of crashing in to things which I most definitely did not and totally looked the other way when someone crashed in to me.
The safety here is non existent with everyone running across the track to jump in to cars and literally driving off before some of us had the chance to make it to our cars.
I would never visit here again or recommend it to family and friends.

Unprofessional

Came to Newcastle on a long weekend and came here with a group of 7. When we arrived we were greeted by the manager. He advised us we needed to purchase balaclavas for health and safety reasons however made some impertinent comments about balaclavas which we all dusted aside and assumed it was a once off. We were then given out safety demo which consisted of the manager pressing the play button on the DVD player. After our "demo" we went out onto the track and we all enjoyed the experience. After we finished we came back inside and the manager and gave us the winning times etc. We were asking questions about the results and the manager made some comments about where we were from and how it was taking us so long to understand the results which was completely unnecessary and downright rude. We asked could they call us a taxi and they would not. Overall it was a great experience however all staff onsite were extremely unprofessional and unhelpful. Would not recommend.

Not professional, and unhelpful staff

Wouldn't recommend using this go-karting track.

Go karts are poorly maintained, to an extent where on our visit 2 of the cars were noticeably slower, and the wheel fell off a third Kart (there was only 7 of us in total on track.)

In fairness the go-kart which the wheel that fell off was soon sorted, but upon bringing the slower karts to the marshals attention on several different occasions, they refused to sort them out (they had several spare go-karts) - not sure if this is because we weren't local and knew we wouldn't be using them again.

But I would strongly recommend looking at using a different go-karting track than this.

Awful and not very helpfull

'If there is a problem with the cars, let the marshal know and we will sort it out' - well that's what they say!

I love karting and frankly would never return to this track!

I told the marshals on several occasions that my kart was struggling in power around the track, however that much should of been blatantly obvious! The foot pedal had a piece of metal that can be used to increase the pedal height, it should be sprung meaning it doesn't flop around obstructing the pedals ability to be pressed when not in use!

I can honestly say that was the worst experience and worst customer service Iv ever had. Thanks a lot
