Family fun

Cars are gas powered and faster than a lot of other area tracks. Moderately priced and good run time on races.

Always fun for our adult and young adults... not sure who has more fun the dad's or their kids! Seems a little pricey but pick up SUNNY Day coupon book.

We rode go carts-were were the only ones. Staff was super nice and we had lots of fun. There are two different tracks-circle and figure 8. We did the circle bc you get to "drift."

Full Throttle is an okay stop for those wishing to race go-karts. There's nothing special about it and it's fairly average with both a slick track and a figure eight track. There used to be other attractions, mostly carnival rides, but those were removed. A ride on the figure eight, which is decidedly the better and more popular track, is... More

Get your family together or a group of friends. The cost for one ride as an adult is $9.50 and $10 for an adult with child riding in two seater cart.

My husband and I went with our daughter (2). For a small charge ($1) you can ride with a young person. I loved watching my daughters face as we drove around the track.

Our crew of 5 adults and 6 kids (ages 2-8) were able to all race together with a combination of the double and single karts. The 5 and 6 year-old were even able to race the slow junior karts. They were thrilled! Not a terribly expensive activity, and worth it for our crew. We may have gone twice....

OK, so the kids had fun, but the adult track is nothing special. Yes I understand this is the beach, but they could do much better with what they have.

Exciting experience!! Kids, brother, nephews and husband all thought they were in the indy 500 :-) Fun to watch and got great family pictures. Definitely something they have now deemed a family tradition!
