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

I am not going to lie, it was a little on the expensive side. 12 laps for $50. The track is nice, but the carts are slow and there are some that are really slow. There was 6 of us and there was 2 that really lagged behind because the carts were slow. The guys working there were great though!!... More

We had a lot of fun here!! Although I wish you could go at least twice around the track without having to pay more. Mini-golf was really fun. The workers were really nice. Will definitely be returning!!

I am sorry our facility did not live up to your expectations. I am sure you will be able to find another Track where the Go-Karts go 100 mph and you can ride all day for a dollar! In the meantime I will be riding my unicorn to watch the Toronto Maple Leafs win the Stanley Cup. More
