I have been 3 times and had a good time twice; the third time I left as the wait was over 3 hours long! The track time is good and the people are nice. The cars are also in good shape.

My husband, nephew and I visited the K1 with some extended family. Very fun for ages 14-46! The track is not too difficult. The platform pictures at the end of the winners were a hit!

This is the first place I've encountered that only offered electric go-carts! Good fun, two rounds of racing with a practice session before that. Only gripe is that some of the carts were not fully charged, and so the race had to be stopped a few times to get a replacement.

Great place for families, friends, get together and team builders. The carts are stable, safe, good for children on their separate track. Fun for adults to let it go. I have not eaten there. Have played air hockey. A fun night out.

We had a large group event here. It's so much fun. Even if you are a poor driver, its fun. Food was okay but that's not what you are there for.
