I took my daughter and some of her friends, where we spent some time in the carts and then we will back inside and we played video games, and then we went back out to the cars. Sometimes during the busy hours the cart line is pretty long, but if you can manage to get there during the week, it is pretty nice. It is like having your own go-cart track.

So glad to hear you enjoyed your visit, and thank you for being a repeat customer! Look for more changes in 2018 which will include a new track with more turns, outdoor party pavilion, and new bathrooms. :-)

We went here for the go karts as it was the closest one to our home. We were not disappointed! The go karts were great and there are lots of go karts to go around. We went on a Saturday night and while there was a lot going on, it was still lots of fun. There are tons of arcade games in a small building, but still allows plenty of walking room. The machine that gives you tokens wouldn't take quarters (or rather, would steal the quarters and give no tokens) but the employees were very helpful and friendly. They were able to give us tokens in exchange for our quarters.

We were on our way back from a morning in Galveston and had seen this track on the way down I-45, so we decided to try it out. My grandson (14) and I (67) are experienced drivers but have outgrown the run-of-the-mill Kart tracks. So this review is biased, but I feel a fair assessment of this track and facilities. We discovered this summer that the regular tracks in Texas have implemented driver restrictions so that only 16 or older can drive the “Super Karts” that can attain a reasonable ‘racing’ speed. I had an email conversation with management at one of the Houston tracks who advised that legal and insurance requirements for the outdoor/gas tracks had changed in recent times, and they would be enforcing the 16+ age limits for the faster Karts.

BAR is an; outdoor track, partially in the shade of trees, the surface is concrete & blacktop, it’s a single level road course, and is a decent length. It is on a slight slope which adds to the value of the experience. The standard karts ($5/Race) we drove were well matched for speed, and if you weigh a lot less than our 180# you’ll do even better. Note that the speed of these karts is far below that experienced at a K1 or a P2 indoor electric Kart track. The indoor facilities were comfortable, with a fair amount of game machines, and the bathrooms were clean. I’d recommend this track for newbies and young drivers that don't need the higher speed. We didn't test the “Super Karts”, as driver has to be 16 or older. Of the 2 budget tracks we experienced in the Houston area, for karting this one is at least one star better.

So… If you’re into or enjoy this level of racing, not looking for one of the super fun centers or a crowd, and you’re on I-45 south of Houston, I’d recommend giving it a try. They have race packages, but you can always do like us, and just buy one race to decide if you want more. There's always the chance that you can beat your friend or in my case grandchild on one of the electronic games (not much of a chance, but worth the try).

We checked this fun place out on Saturday, not expecting a lot. Boy, we're we suprized at what we found.
All employees there are very congenial and know their business. The entire establishment is super clean, including their restrooms. Lots of game machines, some of which vend tickets for redemption towards toy items.
Nice party sections that will work perfectly for the average party. With several different party options too. It's a deal and we are going to strongly consider child's parties here.
Good going, guys...

We rented out the facility on Sunday morning. The video games are unlocked and you can rode the go carts as many times as you would like. It opens to the public at 11 am. it is a great experience and is well worth the money.
