Overview

Slideways - Go Karting World is conveniently located just off the M1, just 2 mins north from Dreamworld, providing easy access from all Brisbane, Gold Coast and Logan Regions. Take exit 54 off the M1 and follow the signs. For many years Slideways - Go Karting Australia has brought you the best of indoor karting, now we bring you the very best in outdoor karting! Slideways - Go Karting World features famous tracks from around the world! The European styled International Nürburgring circuit is built for the real racer and one of the best outdoor go kart tracks in the country. The track is 700m long featuring massive undulations, banked corners, sweepers and fast straights. You can race up to 25 of the latest Sodi RX-7 European hire karts. They are powered by ungoverned 4 stroke Honda motors that pump out 9HP, propelling you along at up to 70kph. Speedway racing began in the USA before World War I. Today sees speedway racing in a variety of classes around the world. In an Australian first, Slideways - Go Karting World have built a dirt speedway track, designed specifically for hire karts! Our banked Daytona Speedway track features 10 Sodi 9HP karts, reaching up to 60km/h racers will be able to drift and slide their karts sideways into the bends. Just because you are a kid, doesn't mean you should miss out! The Bathurst track is custom designed just for kids, the new track is 320m long, and is by far one of the most exciting kid's tracks in Australia! Race up to 8 kid's karts at once, all with state of the art safety and kart control equipment, for every parent's peace of mind. Drivers just need to be over 120cm, to drive the karts (usually 7 years and above). We also have 2 seater karts available, which can be driven by an adult, and suitable for passengers between 90-130cm tall. The Monte Carlo track is for the very little ones. Designed for kids 3-6 years, they will be able to drive supercars from around the world, in an electric car version. Ferrari, Lamborghini, Mercedes, and BMW just to name a few, kids are spoiled for choice! Parents can also drive and steer the car for their child via remote, if the child isn't confident. All of our go karts are fitted with individual timing transponders, measuring to an incredible one thousandth of a second, meaning you can track your lap times and more importantly...whether you beat your friends or not. Our state-of-the-art timing system allows you to view all your lap time son the big screen TV! Whether you want to come down on your own and set a hot lap, race a few friends, organise a bucks party, birthday party or corporate event Slideways - Go Karting World have got you covered. Our outdoor go kart track is open 7 days a week from 9am-5pm! (Check website for extended operating hours during summer) This is another 5 star quality go kart hire track by Slideways - Go Karting Australia. Also check out Slideways - Go Karting Gold Coast and Slideways - Go Karting Brisbane!
