Went there for the big motorcycle racing event in October. never seen bikes go that fast in my life, not even on the I-95 during Daytona Bike Week. Family oriented fun with go kart racing, bike speed timing on the big track and plenty of vendors during the biking events. I remember a restaurant but it was quick food, not something to get dressed up for. They are also building condo's literally right on the track. Located in Avondale, LA a suburb of The Big Easy, New Orleans.

Awesome place for kids or adults. Go carts are really fast and the track is challenging. They spared no expense...quality facility, good service and a cafe that looks over the action.

Very high quality establishment. Kart rentals are well run and lots of fun. Very clean everywhere. On site food and drinks (no beer or booze).
Check the website - they have events here all the time.

Large track is neat to watch. Wish they had some grand stands. Perhaps they will build them later on.

It really isn't that far from the Quarter so don't let distance stop you! Really easy to get there. Once you are there the gate will point you to the go cart track but don't bother looking for signs. This is a multipurpose facility so I guess the signs would be confusing. The go cart building is the first large building to your left as you come in. It has a large smoked glass entrance and an observation deck on the second floor. No harm in looking around before you go straight to the go carts, it is wonderful facility.
First you will be asked to register on a computer. This will create your driving name that your lap times will be attached to. A few glitches here the screen asks you to swear at and attest you read the information that is not there. They give you the release form when you pay so you read it then.(Same one you sign at the gate). If it's not busy the following procedure can seem confusing but it's set up to function on a busy day with lots of riders. The receipt is the session time you should report to the pits and the car you should sit in so you will be able to see your lap times and driving skills compared to everyone in your session.
While waiting for you should go outside past the pits and upstairs to the snack bar/observation deck. There is a screen displaying the current track drivers and their lap times. Makes it easier to watch them and figure out the course and faster times. They don't notify you of your session it's up to you to report to the pit before your session time on the receipt.
Once your session begins the techs will help you find your helmet and safety gear. Make sure you get in the right car it really adds fun to the day comparing your times on the print out you get after the ride! Now the fun begins 10 minutes for as many laps as you can muster! The rules on track are just like a race. Green go, yellow slow down, black flag rolled up and pointed- stop your bad behavior, black flag waved at you- come to the pits your really bad and then the checked flag rides over.
FYI if there is another function happening at one of the tracks you might be asked to pay at the gate to gain access to the park. Call ahead to before you go so you won't be surprised. Ladies please plan on driving but leave valuables in car no where for them on the cart.
Everyone will have fun!

Interesting even if you do not drive a car or go cart. Not too far from New Orleans proper. Go carts high quality, fast machines. Racing tracks smooth. A must for anyone interested in seeing how fast their car can go or likes racing go carts.
