The Pit is a great place for kids and adults on rainy or cold days (also good for corporate events). They've added an escape room and ax throwing recently.

When I would bring my kids before, I had a complaint that you didn't get a bonus for game tokens if you bought $20 worth. It used to be if you put a dollar in the changer you got four tokens and $20 netted you eighty tokens. Now, you get 100 tokens if you pay $20 at the counter. Finally.

Karting is fun (two levels depending on your age) and competitive. After each "race" you'll get a sheet showing your fastest lap time and how you compared to the other racers in your heat.

We visited with son's family, including kids age 10 and 12. Everyone had a great time. They have a package of cart racing plus 3 other activities, so we did that. The cart track is a nice configuration. They run a separate race for younger kids and slow the carts. That worked out great for our first-timers. For the adults, the carts were quick and we had a great time. Also did laser tag. They have a nice area with plenty of good hiding/ambush locations and good functioning guns. Indoor mini golf was fun, but simple. The kids enjoyed it. Also played the arcade games, which are similar to any other arcade. As with many venues today, they are short-staffed, but managed to generally keep up. The signage to some of the activities, such as Mini-golf, batting cages, escape rooms are lacking, so we had to ask for directions. Overall, it was a fun visit.

Came here with the clan (from Miami) and we absolutely loved it. We drove the gocarts and they were in very good condition and are very fast for a short track, really nice.we also tried the zombie room, unfortunately the nice clerk didn't reallize the room schedule was already taken, so we opted for the AI (Artificial intelligence) experience escape room, it was very interesting However, the first clue about "it comes from a gun..." was unclear and confusing. Other than that clue all others were concise, and thoughtfully done. Great place to hang out, they have a full arcade with fuzz ball, air hockey and other games for multiple participants. Great for kids and adults alike who know how to still have fun...

Paid $40 each for 4 kids for all day pass for unlimited play on 5 activities. They didn't tell me one was broken. Then didn't let me sub for another game. $160 and 1/5 of the games was not even working. Thats a lot of money for not even trying to accomodate. Not a fan. And half of the arcades don't work.

A group of friends & I booked an escape room for 4:45pm several days in advance, showed up at 4:30, and were told by staff that they'd accidentally double booked and that we could essentially go f ourselves. No refund offered, just a way later (7pm) room that was completely different from what we wanted. The "free hour of axe throwing" offered...was at 6:30!! Wow, way to make a first time guest want to NEVER come back. AVOID AT ALL COSTS.

We initially just went there to go mini-golfing because my daughter really wanted to do that and it was the only place open, but we ended up staying for much more! It's a fun place with so much variety. The go-karting is exhilerating. There were a few games that ate coins and didn't work. The place isn't really a nice place to look at, but that's ok. The mini golf is under black light, and is kind of, um, in need of a fresh coat of paint and new blacklights. Your kids will have fun though!

Oh, where do I begin... The horrible pit in/pit out system? The bad tempered employees? Nah, I'm a driver, so let's focus on the real problem here: The track itself. The Pitt calls itself the longest gokart track in NC, but in reality, it is simply the MOST BORING go kart track in NC. Because the layout consists of nothing but straightaways connected by high speed sweepers, any driver worth his salt can hit insanely high speeds with little effort. To fix this "problem", the owners implemented speed limiters/governors on the karts. (I suppose there's some irony that this track, located in NASCAR central, has it's own form of restrictor plate racing)

So if you're even a moderately skilled driver, you will find yourself buried in that speed limiter almost THE ENTIRE COURSE. Literally, there's two places you might wanna brake, and a third you might wanna lift throttle on. The rest of the time, it's pedal to the metal, with the most bonejarring vibration from the engine slapping the limiter the whole time. (No soft touch on this rev limiter) Naturally this makes passing almost impossible with skilled drivers in attendance, and you must resort to more forceful means to get around another driver. At which point you will be promptly flagged and persecuted like an early Christian facing Roman Legionaries.

My suggestion is, if you're a driver, go to Victory Lane Karting in Charlotte. If you're the owner of this terrible track, go to Victory Lane Karting, Rush Hour, VIR, CMP, where ever, and take notes on how to design a race track correctly. Believe me, you don't need speed limiters if you lay out the track correctly. What's more, there'll be less contact if karts are unrestricted and can pull off a pass that doesn't consist of divebombing a braking zone and slamming your opponent up against the wall.

Great venue for family outings or kids party. Video games, axe thowing, escape rooms, black light mini golf, laser tag, kart racing, climbing wall, pool tables, air hockey tables, foos ball, small bumper cars, etc... Great family fun anytime and excellent location on rainy or very hot days for all ages.

This place was dark and dingey. It's a creepy warehouse with arcade games and go karts thrown inside of it. I've been to a wide variety of go kart tracks and even worked at one. This was the most expensive and least thrilling experience I've ever had at a go kart track. I couldn't physically drive the karts because they were so damaged. Go Pro motorplex is right around the corner, cheaper and an awesome, safe experience.

We are running new Biz karts for adult and youth that have proven to be fun, reliable, and safe.. Our track lighting was replaced last year and is brighter than most tracks I have visited (over 30 indoor tracks). Our pricing is below GoPro Motorplex and is in line with all the other indoor tracks in the country. Our facility is housed in a textile mill that sat empty for over 17 years and is now being enjoyed by over one hundred thousand people a year. I'm not sure why you felt it necessary to trash The Pit when we strive to offer a fun and affordable experience to all our customers. I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your experience, but it wasn't necessary to post incorrect information about us.

I Scheduled a Team building event @The Pit for 2 departments at my job and they LOVED IT! They got to enjoy racing, The Axe pit, laser tag and lunch. I heard nothing but how great of a time they had and how much fun it was.
