My husband recommended it when he saw the billboard ad off I-4. I was skeptical, having lived in the area I assumed it was the place out in Tampa (that is way over priced and kind of lame) but this was just outside Brandon (off Faulkenberg) very clean, brand new and had AC. We visited in the middle of the day in Mid August and while it wasn't chilly, it was totally pleasant. I had such a wonderful time I had no idea "go carting" got that serious. I don't mean to sound like a weirdo, but I really did not expect them to go that fast. lol Overall, we spend probably $45- $50 did 2 races each. If I remember correctly that races were about 20 mins, or so , long. The crowd that was there was mostly families and a couple groups of young guys. As we were leaving around 5pm the waiting room was PACKED. So go mid day maybe. It made a great date day... so much better than dinner and a movie! We will be back! PS- They print off your racing stats at the end of the race. So I got to brag to the ladies at work that I was .5 seconds faster than husband. :) Nice! lol

Indoor electric go-kart racing. No fumes. Timed results (to end "discussions" over who beat whom). Very fast cars, helmets & neck braces are available.

We traveled an hour away to go here thinking it would be fun with out of town guests. The place was out of order and we waiting 30 minutes while people kept cutting in front of us and the people working it are arrogant and disrespectful. Never going again.

Thank you for your feedback. For the indoor entertainment business, we are very busy during summer vacation and especially during rainy days. We experience a higher volume of customers and this can create longer wait times. We do apologize if you felt as though you did not receive the best customer service possible. We will use this information to further improve our organization.
