My daughter gave a day of racing to her Dad and we all got in on the birthday gift. It was fun but especially fun for my husband, he would give it a higher rating.

We had a good time. It may take me a little more practice to get the hang of it. I was a little slow. My older daughter loves and she even took all day race and class with a Formula One driver in the past. It was excellent. But my other kids didn't have as much fun because they were... More

This is a really cool place. It's not cheap, but is something different to do. All 4 of us raced. Our kids went twice. If you get motion sickness at all, I would not recommend this attraction. I felt a little queasy afterwards. The cars go up to 45 mph, which is fast for a go kart. You get a... More

Took my two teenage daughters to this while on vacation. They said it was the highlight of the trip! The place is air conditioned and they use electric carts so no smell of gas which was nice. Staff is friendly and they do a good job making first timers feel comfortable. We received a print out of lap times and... More

I've been here with our sons for a few birthday parties. They love it! The speed, the track, hanging with friends at air hockey in between racing. A good place for kids to practice driving in a fun setting.
