Visited to check out the place. It's about 45 mins to an hour drive from the heart of colombo,depending on the traffic. Found the location via GPS.
Massive complex with future water park.

The track looks very professional done. Looks similar to other international Karting tracks. The registration process was quick, via a self registration kiosk, next was payment and gear. Gloves,helmets etc. Safety briefing was done while in the karts and off we went. The weather was just nice after a morning shower and was t too hit even though we were there around 2:00PM.

A good alternative activity from the norm.

Sri Lanka Karting Circuit Bandaragama is one of a kind place-to-head-over-the-weekend. It is easily accessible via Southern Expressway in a 20 minute drive-time. The host of services they have on offer is just mind-blowing. Go-karting is the cherry on top - as the name suggests itself. In addition, they have got Air Riffle Shooting, Pool Table, Swimming Pool and Video Game Zone to cater to all type of fun and thrill-seekers. Needless to say, their "Paddock" Restaurant has got awesome food with a really friendly service. I highly recommend Sri Lanka Karting Circuit Bandaragama for friends and family - a must-go place :)

Karting experience was super exciting and thrilling.

You have to LKR1500 for 10 mints ride which is roughly 10 laps. If you take 3 tickets, you get an LKR200 discount for each ticket.

This is very close to the southern highway A008 exit.

Completely worth the experience.

First, the price for nationals & foreigners is not the same. We pay the double of regular price. I don't even understand why the price is displayed in $US for foreigners. Even in 5 stars hotels in Colombo all prices are displayed in LKR, even visas, even flights. But maybe they think that foreigners = $_$.
When this rule is applied in a museum or public park (to subsidize the price for nationals) I understand it and it's normal for the best interest of locals. But when it's from a private company of Karting, it's not justified. I hope srilankese will not face this problem when they go in a foreign country (and have to pay double for an attraction price just because they are foreigners, i'm sure they will have the same feeling as me of being taken for what i'm not). Anyway in my own country, they will not face this problem and pay karting same price like locals :)

Now, even with this double price, I decided to take my kids for the birthday of my son here for a ride since I was in Bandaragama, not a lot to do in this area. I was not willing to pay for myself and my wife double price (since we play karting in our country for less), but for the birthday of my kid, I was ready to pay double to make them happy, but it was a bad idea. Karting was empty, which was good. Since it was the first time for my kids to do karting (7 & 5 years old), it was a good thing there is not a lot of people.. But, the person who puts people on the circuit has decided otherwise. He put my kids with mad of speed 30-40 year olds, like 6 people who wanted to have fun with speed (which is their right !).
Imagine a 7 & 5 years old who try karting for first time and don't control correctly the kart.. in the same circuit with people of 30-40 years who don't verify if there is kids in the circuit and who want to have the max in their 10mn (sure, they want the max, they paid for it). It was going to end badly for my kids. As soon as I saw the danger from the first lap, I asked to this "intelligent" person to stop my kids and give them back.. the same person who wanted to put all people on the same time slot to be quiet after for 2 hours without one (since it was empty).. instead of doing what seems more logical ! let the old peoples enjoy, then let my children or other childrens play in safety ! each his age, each his security ! All would enjoy.
At the end, I paid double price for 2mn of ride.. I mean for a fifth of what I was supposed to have for my kids, and which 2mn !! 2mn of pure danger for my kids.
moral of the story, I don't recommend it for foreigners and especially those with childrens.
If you are not srilankese and you don't like your kids and if you won your money at the lottery in your own country in usd$ preferably, this is the perfect place for you ! you will not be disappointed.

Dear Taha B, It appears that you have had a really bad day at the track and it also appears to be what customers usually experience on a day to day basis from various parts of Sri Lanka from different age groups and walks of life. We truly regret the experience you have had and we would like to apologize on behalf of our team and the management. We reckon there are two components to your complaint, which I would like to respond to you categorically: 1) About pricing: Our standard pricing is what is available in USD as well as converted in LKR. However, as a Sri Lankan born and bred company, the management has taken a decision to subsidize the pricing for the Sri Lankan locals in order to provide them with the opportunity to make maximum use of the locally available facility. In USD pricing terms we are the lowest priced homologated purpose-built karting track in Asia and probably the lowest price track in the world on equal comparison for a 10 min ride. Our research makes us understand that a track of this quality and standard of safety, charges USD 25 per ride or more. If you can give us examples of any lower-priced tracks than of ours we would be glad as it would provide us great insight to understand our competition globally. 2) About kids on track: Your feedback is taken positively. We will review our model of operation when kids want to go-karting. Thank you profoundly for the point made. Please let us know what we can do to help you feel comfortable back at our track again? We would love to hear from you! Please contact us via our social media pages.

This place is living up to the standard except for the customer service. So I give this place only 3 stars. They have 2 types of Karts here. The red Kart and black Kart. The employees here is extremely unprofessional and rude. Please teach the staff how to talk to customers. They argue and humiliate customers. When you hire employees, please do the homework and hire professionals. I’ve spent a good amount of money here and I’ve decided not to come, purely because of the customer service.

This was my first visit and we were two families with kids. This place offers outdoor activities for kids n adults such as basket ball, air rifles, pool ect. The main attraction is Karting on the main tarmac.
Last but not least the food they offer in the restaurant is mouth watering. Prices are reasonable and a good place to spend the day with your family n friends.

I have visited many kart tracks in Europe but this was the best! It is more than a kart track (albeit an excellent one); it is a day out for the whole family, even those who have no interest in karting because there are other things to do and indulge in. Well maintained facilities located just outside busy Colombo in lush green picturesque surroundings, easy access via E01 motorway, very friendly, flexible and helpful staff, cafe, pool, etc. Great value for money with generous discounts when you buy your 2nd and 3rd sessions. This is a professional international racing venue with superb facilities. Highly recommended and I will definitely visit again. Tip: If you're a Sinhala speaking person, please do speak to the pit staff in Sinhala.

This was my first visit to a karting circuit but I was very impressed with how well they had done it. It was organised and the staff are very helpful and nice. It has a pool as well as a shooting range. They even have a karting circuit for the kids. They are strict about safety which is a plus. It is a great place to spend the day with your family and friends. I would suggest you take a hat and some sunscreen as it can be quite warm and sunny!
