Family looking forward to going here since we booked a month ago, planned on spending 160 for my family of four, went to the counter, said it would be a two hour wait, so asked if we could go get something to eat and come back, said no we could not, just in case our race came up early, mind...

We are certainly sorry to hear about your experience at G-Force Portsmouth. Long waits can be a reality in our business, as we only allow a set number of racers on the track during each race. The idea is to maximize your on track enjoyment and give all racers the chance to hit top speeds. We are glad you enjoyed... More

Thanks for your feedback! We are glad you enjoyed your race. We value your input. We push really hard to keep our karts running at top speed with the best tires and parts available. Truth is (especially on the weekend during peak racing season), sometimes our karts take a lot of wear and tear during the day. We change tires... More

Come to G Force! Complete with a rude staff, racial profiling, and decrepit karts. The staff is always pissed off. The building is always empty and smells like stale body odor. If you have an issue, be prepared to be told off by the manager and other staff members. It's not a cheap experience either - $17 per race and... More

Found this place from a flyer at our local hotel. I was skeptical as to the quality of the karts and track. We were looking for an exciting experience and not the watered down tourist traps that seem to be in every town. We were very happy with our experience at G-force. The karts were some of the fastest I... More

We celebrated my son's 15th birthday here and it was a lot of fun! It was cold and rainy so this place was perfect. We didn't have any small children with us but they have bounce houses so while older kids are go-karting or playing paintball, the little ones can bounce. My only complaint is that there isn't a lot... More

My boys (11 & 15) love this place. We always felt that it was well run with strict adherance to the safety policies. We haven't been for a while because my older son is 6' 3.5 and is too tall for the small carts but too young for the larger models and they do not bend the rules. I know... More

The Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce hosted a Business After Hours at G-Force in July and it could not have been more fun! The staff was extremely accommodating of the large group and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the Go Kart races and Paintball experience! I can't wait to plan a trip back with friends and family!

There's not much to do in portsmouth that isn't museum related. Gforce has added the extra amusement that this area needed.
