Went with 3 teenagers and they LOVED racing each other. Went on the cars many times. Indoors was clean. Adjoining cafe very clean and service was friendly. Kids enjoyed the various indoor attractions (only one use with ticket purchase for each attraction) but hurried outside to race again. They did not try the mini golf. Tickets were pricey, but adults didn't have to purchase to go inside and take pics.

We visited Andretti utilizing the Groupon ($20 for an all day pass and a $5 arcade card). My boys love to drive go karts (7 and 10). My 10 year old is tall enough to drive on both the Super Speedway and the F1 track. I have to drive my 7 year old on those tracks. It would be nice if Andretti offer a discounted chauffer pass because I had to pay full Groupon price just to drive my son around the track a couple of times. The shorter drivers are limited to the Jr. Indy Track which is just a small oval. We started out earlier in the day which is nice because once the adults and teenagers got on the tracks it can be a bit intimidating for the younger drivers.

The rock climbing wall was a hit with both my boys. Paddle boats are just so-so and there is a sign warning that you have to be dry before riding the go karts again. The mini golf is very basic. We also tried out the batting cages. The equipment is worn but was in working order. Even though it is meant for younger kids, we rode the “train”. Laser tag wasn’t much fun because we only had a small group and there was no one else there to play.

The $5 arcade card doesn’t last long. Several of the games are priced $0.35 and $0.60 which left us all with odd remainders of $0.15 or so that we couldn’t use for anything. It would make more sense to have all the games be multiples of $0.25.

The new ropes course they are advertising costs extra and is small. We didn’t try it because it just doesn’t look like it is worth the extra money.

Overall, our experience was good because my kids love to drive go carts and don’t seem to mind doing the same tracks multiple times. I would not pay full price for this attraction. Definitely check the weather before you go because the majority of the park is outdoor attractions.

Miniature golf is really sad- even though they state it was refinished it still looks like a ghost two for a miniature golf course.

The rest of the park is very small and can be done quickly. Games are extra and are way overpriced. The whole park is way to expensive for what you get....I don't even think the Groupons they offer are worthwhile. No rainchecks are offered and it rained the day we went so we were out of luck. Seems like they should offer some sort of refund if you have only been there for a short while. Either way-

I cannot recommend this place!

It's OK. The carts are interesting for a short while. The video games are OK, but if you have a PS or XBox it doesn't seem worth it. The putt-putt course is OK, but it tends to have a lot of exhaust smell. I've been a couple of times, but I'm really not interested in going again.

Go karts lose thier thrill after a few times through. Plenty to keep everyone occupied for half of a day, but not much longer. Good deals on groupon make it worth it.
