Very disappointing
Jan 2021 • Family
Very disappointing! When you arrive you have to pay extra for a drivers license (money making). Staff at reception is very unfriendly. Then it started to rain and the session was cancelled. No one at the reception to see to reschedule. Finally we could make the new appointment after 3 weeks (they only open from 1pm!). Right before we went they send us a message that the speed tracking display system was broken that day. They didn’t offer any compensation just 8 minutes per ride. Don’t waste your money to go here.

Shambolic!
Jan 2021
I booked a "first timer package" for my children and arrived 30 minutes before the session start time, just as it started to rain. Obviously with it raining, the track is closed. I understand that. There were lots of people milling around, however no staff on the reception desk and what staff were there were rushing around like headless chickens giving the impression of a very disorganized facility. After about 40 mins, my children were eventually allowed to do their simulator sessions which they enjoyed although with at least 6 simulators, only 3 were operational. I had pre-paid for balaclavas for my kids although were informed that they had run-out. The rain stopped and the track dried out and my kids eventually went and did their karting session. However each session last for 8 minutes only which is to short (in my opinion)....just as you are getting going, your session ends. My children were pretty disappointed. Overall its quite pricey - for what you get. I certainly don't think its value for money. And the overall level of customer service could improve, as I said, no one seemed to know what they should be doing. I cant say that we shall be rushing back. Very disappointing experience.

Very disappinting

I just put 2 stars instead of 1 because my kids did it for the first time and still enjoyed it.
But it is very expensive ($30 for a round of 8 with the smaller karts) and the l’arts are in poor condition. Worse I just realise the control the electric power centrally so it is not a real race as they will change depending on how you perform in the first round.
And the staff is not very friendly.
Very disappointing

Ok lah

we went there for a bucks party warm up, would probably opt for gas karts next time as a few of us were quite large and takes time to get to top speed.
Staff were helpful but track-side quite disorganized - patience was needed on this day by all of us attending

Speed tampering
Jan 2020
I was very upset for our rides were in fact manually controlled by the arena operators. The whole idea of go-karting is it is a competitive race but I felt like I was not having an enjoyable time as I never knew that it would be this controlled. During my race (in the middle) my go-kart started going REALLY slow. During this, I had got very frustrated at how I never knew this. I am definitely never coming back as I never got a refund.

50KM FTW!
Feb 2019 • Business
This was my first go-kart experience and I went there with my company. The amount of flexibility and leeway they gave us was truly unexpected (in a good way, without compromising the safety of course or any of their policies)- perhaps due to it being a company event and we literally took up the whole place thus it was a good experience. We tried out the 30km/hr and also 50km/hr which you could actually feel the difference in the track. The waiting room is air-conditioned and other information regarding the Karting Arena, you could easily get it from the website itself. Oh, the washroom is within the vicinity but quite a distance to walk to, probably about 3-5 minutes walk. I don't recall there being any rubbish bin around the parking area, thus for smokers, do protect the environment and bring your portable ashtrays! 50km/hr is highly recommended for greater fun and for tips, don't worry about your position, have all the space and focus on your timing.

FUN AND EXCITEMENT
Jul 2018 • Family
The persons in the Management are very particular about the safety of the riders. We reached in the morning hours of Sunday 22nd July. We were advised that the Karting is suspended for tracks getting wet due to a passing rain. We have to wait at least for 3 hours for the tracks getting dry and if it does not rain further.

We returned after 3 hours and on our request they inspected the tracks again and allowed us karting.

Karting was a fun over there, but they could have allowed some more time or rounds within the money they are charging. We had to buy separate tickets for a second time to get the full fun.

Not satisfying
May 2018 • Friends
It was not a very well maintained as it look like in the photos. The helmets and steering is a bit run down as I probably thought it has never maintained at all. You will be given a hair cover for the helmet. The odor was not pleasant. For 8mins perhaps you could withstand awhile by popping a mint ? That's what I did. All information is stated in the website where I will not highlight here.

The good thing is there are several activities you can do around this area and food. Overall not too bad, just gear were not what I expected.

Adult Birthday Party
May 2018 • Friends
Went to the karting arena with a group of friends for a birthday party! We had a great time on the track, Karting really brings out the competition in everyone! The process from entry till getting on the track was smooth and the staff were friendly and fun , the price was a great range for our group. We did a practice, qualifying and the top 8 finalists kicked off on the grid. We were talking about it for days after and how much fun it was!

A group of us us been back recently after getting membership. I would highly recommend this for a fun night out with friends!
