“Kids Loved Driving the Karts”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

I can see how this place could quickly get pricey. When we were in Branson, the only one that was open was the one with the Metal track, which was a pretty cool track.
However, the thing we liked best was that both of our kids (6 and 8) were able to drive the cars (on different tracks). They thought that was really cool. We also did the bumper cars.

Also, this particular location is next to a pizza place and an ice cream stand, so you can walk around, eat, then go back and drive some more.

Thank you for visiting Track 4, Home of the Heavy Metal High Rise. It sounds like you had great time on our newest track Heavy Metal High Rise. We strive to have something for everyone, with everything from tracks for four year olds to tracks that are four stories high! We do have the luxury of having Andy’s Frozen Custard and Pizza World at our facility. Thank you for your kind review and we hope to see you soon.

“As a kid, I loved this place”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

As an adult, not so much. While I do still enjoy driving the carts and racing my kids, the thought of paying upwards of $10 per ride for about 3 minutes of drive time is a bit nuts, but it is what it is.

Aside from carts, they have bumper boats, arcade games and other such attractions. If you are a go-kart fan, have extra money to kill, or want to play video games while in a resort town, this is the place to do it.

“Fun (with limitations)”
Reviewed February 15, 2014 via mobile

My son and I had a blast with the go carts, though they weren't without problems. The cars seemed to struggle some around the track, and this was not your average circular track. I kept wondering if I was going to get stuck somewhere! Thanks to a very nice gentleman, we were able to play laser tag, and that was also a blast. They were getting ready to shut it down as we got ready to play. The problem, in my opinion, was the hours of operation. This was a Saturday, and they closed down at 5:00. With times not clearly posted, we almost missed our chance to take advantage of the fun, and it wasn't cheap! Be aware of the time, and it is good, family fun.

Thank you for visiting Track 5, Home of the Lumberjack. Glad to hear that you guys had a blast on the go-karts. In the off-season our operating calendar varies and is heavily based on crowds and weather. You can visit our website to see what attractions are open in “real time” and our operating calendar. In the peak season all of our locations are open late. Thank you for your kind review and we can’t wait to see you again soon!

“Not bad...”
Reviewed November 30, 2013 via mobile

Everything in Branson seems to cost a lot and this isn't much difference but the GoCard does help.

My son had been begging me to let him drive a go cart since he had driven one at a track earlier in the year at Mtn View so I thought this would be no different with all of the tracks they have. However, he was just a quarter inch too short to drive and the staff wouldn't give any on the rule. If he had worn his boots then he would have passed easily. I can understand the rule of 54" on the larger tracks but one track was going soooo slow, slower than he was used to and yet they had the 54" rule in effect on it as well.

All in all we had a good time riding together and I know by the time we get back up here he will be tall enough. And I still have some credits on my GoCard so I'm sure we will be back. The staff was nice enough.

My advice would be to measure your children before you come and definitely skip this place if your child has their heart set on driving and they aren't 54" tall. Save your money and wait.
