I booked a Karting experience with Bushy Park on Jan 2nd, initially it was supposed to be at 11am. I was contacted by Dillon (manager/staff member I assume) a few days before the booking to ask if it would be OK for us to reschedule until 2:30 because they had another booking which I agreed to. On the day we were scheduled to come Dillon again called me to inform me that we would have to cancel the booking because all of the other groups booked for that day had cancelled and as such they told the staff not to come to work. I am extremely disappointed by this poor and substandard customer service. I have done the go-karting once before and enjoyed it but I doubt I am ever going back after this. It is a complete and utter disregard for peoples' time. After rescheduling once, to accommodate the business, to then cancel us for the aforementioned reason is appalling. You have a good product but the customer service (as so often is the case in Barbados unfortunately) need serious improvement.

Responded Jan 6, 2021
Good Morning Graeme, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. Our apologies that our customer service did not meet your expectations. Unfortunately due to the significant increase in COVID cases in Barbados, we felt it was the right thing to keep everyone safe and cancel any remaining Karting Experiences that we had booked for Saturday 2nd January as we had a significant number of cancelations already for the day and to help prevent the spread of COVID in Barbados. We apologise that this was not correctly communicated to you and for any inconvenience this cancelation caused you and your party. Kind Regards, Amy Willis Operations Manager

Took a driver in a Radical with an experienced driver. A fun experience. Give mean appreciation of the skill needed to drive these high performance cars as well I'm sure the Formula cars.

I booked it for my boyfriends birthday since he is in love with cars and swift driving. He enjoyed every bit of it. He did 4 laps following the driving instructor and then 4 laps alone.

Well run, professional staff. Good equipment. (I don't think younger kids could handle these karts without some knowledge of driving unless they have some baby karts) Fun track with high speed and slow speed corners. Live timing with results posted to tracking site.

While visiting another plantation house nearby we heard racing engines and went off to investigate. We were surprised to find a beautiful race track in a fairly remote area! At the time, drivers were training on Radicals but one driver we spoke to told us they have local and inter-island championships here. You'd need to research what events were on if you wanted to see any races. We just wandered in, had a look around, chatted to a few people and left again.
