“Dangerous Driving”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2014

I think these guys saw us farangs coming. Wife hired a smaller cart than I did. She got in and off she went straight out on to the track and cruising around at her own speed. I hired a 125cc machine and spent about 3 or 4 laps being pushed dangerously fast around the track from one of the employees in another cart trying to get the engine started. To tell you the truth, I was scared and I'm a seasoned driver. I was jamming on the brakes at every corner to try to slow down but the clown in the cart pushing me just kept going harder. I'm sure he was laughing. I eventually stopped the cart because it simply wouldn't run. I got another one and I was much happier but really, what an awful experience.

“Huge amounts of fun.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2014

This is comparable, price-wise, with the tracks in Phuket. The karts here are not in as good a state of repair, but they do have the addition of the Pro Speed two-stroke race karts (or, as I refer to them, the 'brain out' karts). These have been tuned slightly past the point of common sense, so they won't carburate properly below about 5,000 revs (translation - they can only be driven very fast indeed!)

There are no seatbelts, as other reviewers have noted. This is Thailand, people, this is the real world and you ain't gonna be wrapped in cotton wool here. On the other hand, it is about the most fun way to spend 10 minutes I've ever found!

“Great, simple, holiday fun :-)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2014

We came here for a friend's birthday while on holiday and had a great time!! I was expecting it to be a little bit more dodgy than it was, but we got helmets and a quick rundown on the carts, and I felt completely safe driving mine (and I am definitely not a 'go-karter').

A bit on the pricey side, but a fun little adrenaline kick and way to spend an hour on the island.

The staff were lovely too!
