“Boys loved it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2013

Took 3 boys here while in scarborough and they loved it. went back for a 2nd visit and did a proper race. They all thought it was a great track. The staff were well friendly and knew what they were talking about.Went out of their way to help. Good value for money. £18.99 for 15 mins and then £26 for the proper race which included 5 lap qualifier. They had a proper safety briefing first and were kitted out in proper outfits. There is vending machines on site to get hot and cold drinks.
Well recommended

“Great Treat for the Royals”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

A great event for the twenty Royal Marines I sent there. The track set for full F1 racing and a team of staff working on safety issues and equipment. Both groups enjoyed the challenge of the race all saying it was one of the best activities of the week. Thank you for taking the time to not only fit them in but to ensure it was action packed.

See you again next spring.

“Poor Value & Clueless Staff!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

I visited on 7/09/13 as part of a 40th birthday celebration.I have visited many tracks & found the overall experince here dissappointing.On arrival we signed our waiver forms & asked what the format would be.The lady behined the counter said once everyone arrived & the money was collected they would then explain the sequence of events.Once we were all there & seen the induction video we were called over to collect our equipment.There are no helmet liners & the two staff dealing with our group gave us different instructions on how points would be caculated.We paid £39 each & spent approximatley 15 minutes on the track.I would not call that value.The track itself is ok - average for an indoor circuit.I will deffinately not return as there are beetr tracks offering better value for money with properly trained staff.Do not waste you money!

“I would rate this six stars if I could do”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013

I visited here yesterday for the first time as I was with the family.

15 minute safety video with question and answer session following with a very likeable and enthusiastic member of staff. Bottom line "don't drive beyond your abilities".

As someone has already pointed out, there is a strong emphasis on safety. You have a racing suit to put on, crash helmet and gloves.

Session itself was just incredible, took a few laps to get your eye in and the 2 marshals were absolutely first class. It is not often you come away from somewhere but before leaving wanting to tell the staff "you have got this right" - but at Scarborough Indoor Karting, they certainly have got it right.

Price was not extortionate £14 for 20 laps I think is very fair indeed. There were 5 of us and we all left with big smiles.

The karts were pretty fast and the course was very tight the kart can really throw you around and you do feel it the next day if you drive hard.

Definitely will be going back, it is a rare find to discover somewhere that prides itself on both safety and enjoyment and NOT an outfit that just wants to take your money and not care and there are a lot of those about.

I hope one of the race officials get's his voice back soon ;)

Best wishes,
Steve (Hackness, Scarborough)

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013 via mobile

We were on holiday in the area and took our 14 year old son and his friend here for a 30 minute session. We found it to be good value and well run. Neither boys were very confident but the guy who was trackside was really encouraging and took time to give them tips, also very safety conscious. The lady at reception was very friendly and made sure they had their session to themselves. We would definitely highly recommend this place!
