Took the family to MB2 Raceway during a recent trip to Des Moine and we had a blast. We were able to go out on the track with just our family so that was pretty cool. Was a bit concerned initially about my 10yr old...More

Had a GREAT time! We took our 17 yr old there for his birthday. Our son-in-laws joined us along with 2 Grandsons who are 9 and 7. There are Groupons to get the price more affordable. There are two different speeds you can do.

Took our 15 and 10 year old sons here. We all raced the 'family' race. Carts go a little slower for kids under 13 for the entire family race. It was a good time. Little pricy, but a good time. It can get busy, so...More

Some friends and I decided to use Groupon to try this place out. Wait time was not too long but I imagine if it was busy then extended wait times should be expected. However there is an arcade, tv's and front row seats to watch...More

A bit on the spendy side but so much fun! There were 5 of us and no one else was there so we were all able to be on the track together. Ages 7, 10, 15 along with my husband and I.

Had a blast, a little spendy for the time spent on the course but they had lots of fun! Easy to get to, plenty of parking. Have package deals that bring the price down.
