Having experienced go karts at Destiny, our son was all about doing them closer to "home". He managed to talk both grandpa's into taking him go karting. On his second visit he raced against some local "pros" and was thrilled to beat them. I am betting next summer, he will want to go a couple times a week.

This place is a little pricey, but it brings out the kid in you. Race against your friends for the best experience. I have 2 boys, 7 and 5 and they don't meet the height requirements but have just as much fun sitting shotgun!!!

Had a blast!! Did 4 laps and kids loved it. Passed it on our way into town. Kids wanted to make sure we tried it before we left. It's over a mile long and the carts are fast!! Highly recommended

My 11 year old son loved it. We stayed in the area for 1 night. We went the 1st day we arrived and he did many laps, and enjoyed it so much that we went back the next morning for more laps.

This wasn't my favorite go-kart track I have ever been on, buy my favorite is on the other side of the country, and is a kart (not go-kart track), so the comparison's wouldn't be fair. That being said, Alex Bay 500 was a lot of fun. My daughter (as a passenger) had a blast as well,. They have helmets, which... More

Took the family for go-kart racing while on vacation. We all had a great time. We also had fun in the arcade and put-put.

A little pricey but a great track and the karts were in good condition. Staff was helpful but the process for multiple laps wasn't the best, they give you tickets for the laps you purchase and you have to stop between laps to hand in a ticket. Iit kind of kills the momentum if you're racing.

We took our tween kids here last week. It was a great experience. There is a little arcade with various electronic and prize games. The racetrack is long and my son and my wife enjoyed several laps. The price is fair considering the length of the track as well as the fact that this is a seasonal business. We will... More

My family and I loved this place. Kids at least 10 years old and 54" tall can drive by themselves, or anyone 16 or older can drive and take a passenger (no extra charge for the passenger.) The track is very long (over a mile) with lots of right and left curves. My son was thrilled to be able to... More
