    Fast and Fun karts with a great track, just pricey
    We used the double karts as we had our 9 year old sons with us. I'll tell you, even the double karts are super fast. I wanted to go back with my father and do a race on the singles, but we just didn't have the time in the week. Note: They only have 2 double karts, so you may have to wait if someone is already using them. The only grab that sucked was we had to pay $8 a rider for a "yearly fee" to get a "membership", which is purely a money grab when tourists are coming once. To ride the double kart is expensive, they don'y list their price, but i want to say it was about $50 a race for the double kart. Outside of that, the karts are FAST and you definetly have to maintain control or you could get hurt badily. It is a very fast and fun track.

    Great team even with super staff.
    Great team event. Super staff, fast, challenging track, and just a wonderful afternoon, despite the heat. I've driven karts many places and too often you have karts that are not properly maintained... not so here. Karts were in nice shape and equally prepared (generally) so the driver made the difference. Recommend.

    Orlando Kart Center in the Rain was Fun!
    Overall, the go-kart track was really long, and I definitely had an amazing time with my friends. Moreover, the rain actually added to the experience (was able to drift more easily). However, I do wish the experience was somewhat cheaper.

    There is a registration fee
    I didn't enjoy my experience here. My two mistakes were: 1. I didn't check the track layout ahead of time. I was looking for a track with more straightaways. You can't really get up a good speed on this track because there are so many turns. I don't care about the turns--I just want to go fast! 2. I went on Saturday. Note to self: go carting during a weekday. There were too many carts on the track at one time. There were times when a number of cars were bunched up, and even though people aren't supposed to run into other people, they did. It would have been nice if they didn't allow so many on the track at one time. After you go in, you have to fill out an electronic form with your email, phone, and other personal information. Then you're informed that there is a registration/membership fee, I think $7-8. The staff was very friendly and super helpful, but I won't return here.

    Staff unfriendly
    Never greeted by a staff member. Very unfriendly and not personable at all. Registration and payment process is all electronic. Paid $96 and some change for three 10 minutes races. Pick out a helmet and watch safety video. BTW…there is an observation deck if you go out the side door and take the stairs on the right. After we sat and watched two of three races inside, another customer told us about the observation deck. We went up to it and had a much better view of the track. It would have been nice if the staff had let us know about this to start with. Customer service is very much lacking communication skills. It’s a shame bc they have a great setup and our son seemed to enjoy the carts and the track.

    fun stop
    Recently my teen son, husband and 21+ daughter rode the track twice. Staff is friendly. Place was clean. They had fun. Was steady busy. One thing I didnt appreciate was "owner cars" used the track between racers exited cars and next drivers got in cars- because the owners were on the track so long out second race didnt start for at least 20 minutes after they were in carts. Sat in the sun just waiting.

    Honest feeling from Orlando Karting Center
    The good: Track is nice, fuel karts are nice. The bad: The place plays favourites with their friends, ruining your groups day by letting them with faster karts, drive around running into everyone. Was ready to spend $$$ to play all day with my group, sadly due to the crap they pulled… left after one race. Verdict: Wont go back again. Buyer Beware!

    FUN TIME IN THE AFTERNOON
    First time at the Kart Center running in two races. While I may not have finished well in the standings, it was a lot of fun. Good safety overview for 1st time drivers and the course was challenging. Hope to return one day.

    caution
    This place is dangerous. My childs cart flipped. Had no idea it was possible. Child was injured. If you must go, wear appropriate clothing and be careful. Bottom line: you should be warned.

    Needs a Safety Inspection / Fast karts but negligent management
    I took my son there for his 13th birthday along with a few friends. They raced a few times and seemed to be having fun. When they approached for their 3rd ride, they were told that they were no longer allowed on the track. I asked for an explanation. After waiting for the manager I was told that they were going too fast...Somehow this seemed impossible as they were all in last place in each of their races. He then changed tact and said it was because one of them spun out; right as he said that two carts spun out on the course. I asked if he was going to ask them to leave as well. At this point the manager became belligerent and started raising his voice to me. He then stated that he was trying to keep everyone safe....Haha I laughed as he did not check anyones helmets to see if they were properly strapped (found out later that one did not even have a strap). One of the kids brakes did not work. Ironically, one of the carts in the another area caught on fire as we were leaving. Now full disclosure, these were kids; not professionals. Just kids looking to ride some go-carts. They were not given any instruction on procedure or safety. When spoken to by the staff they were compliant. I asked before we left if they have a lot of kids here and the response was "not really". I suggested that she might want to put up a sign to that effect. Next step is to contact the county and state.

Went to this karting center with my sons, 13 and 9.

My teenage son and I has an absolute blast and enjoyed every minute of time spent there. I will restate what the staff instructs, and that is to take it easy on first few laps until you learn how powerful these karts are. Once you get a feel for them you can get them up to 40+ mph without any issues. Carts are in tip top shape as are the helmets and hoodies you wear to keep the helmets clean. Rest rooms were very surprising and clean. This is a must for anyone looking to go fast, however these karts are also very dangerous and should be treated with respect. going this fast in a go kart will result in injury if you don't repsect the speed. My youngest son found this out on his own.

My 9 year old was hesitant to ride but,after watching people on the track he decided he was ready. The staff made sure he was able to fit and operate the cars properly. He ended up crashing on his way out of the pits and decided not to race anymore. He hurt his ankle, bruised, but scared after this incident. this was not the fault of the staff but rather that of a 9 year not ready for these kinds of carts.

I wanted to put this into this review because i wanted to let parents understand that these karts are the real deal and if your children are not prepared they could get hurt.

All in all this center was the best karting center we visted and by far the most fun I have ever had on 4 wheels, legally. I highly recommend this karting center and plan to return again soon.

Went twice on holidays and did the 3 times 10 minutes package (best value for money) both times. Karts are plenty fast and handle well, races are set up professionally with drivers assigned to karts in the pits and GPS recorders giving fastest lap, average lap times and podium positions at the end. The staff are brilliant, very enthusiastic and they understand that people want to race and have fun, noone was told off for minor bumps when it was unavoidable like other centres I've been to where they disqualify you and ban you from racing. The track is good, both fast and twisty enough to be exciting.

The website advertises 2-stroke karts for hire that offer more speed and thrills and were priced at $75 per person for 10 laps, and the prices drops as you book more sessions. BUT they will not let you hire them unless the senior marshall Raul (very competent and professional while still friendly and positive) recommends you to Pablo who owns the 2-stroke machines. It's not QUITE as advertised so dont be shocked if they refuse. Pablo insists on Raul's recommendation and wants to know that you can lap consistently fast and on proper race lines safely, otherwise he won't rent the fast karts to you. And rightly so!! We both lapped in 38secs for me and 39secs for my partner every lap and we were offered the chance to rent the 2-strokes but we saw others being refused for slower times and not being consistenly fast/safe enough. The 2-strokes are amazing, VERY VERY fast and a completely different experience than the normal karts, which are good anyway! Not many places will rent karts of this performance to customers, so IF they offer you the chance...TAKE IT! It's more pricey, but it's a different league altogether and they close the track for you to ensure safety and give you the chance to open up. We both set the speed trap off at 61mph...very fast when your body is only 3 inches off the track!!

All in all, the best kart centre we've ever visited, can't recommend it more highly than that!!!

Every year I come to Orlando - every year it is mandatory to race here. I have never found a better track with fast carts like these.. Only wish they continued renting the 60-70mph karts instead of the standard 45mph.
