  • Nothing but good experiences here. Most of the bad reviews are from people complaining about the rules. The staff is always amazing. Friendly and willing to help anyway they can. I'll admit that I was bummed about the rules when I first came but it makes you actually race and have more fun and do it safely. I recommend speeders to all my friends and everyone that comes with me starts telling their friends to come after.
  • Speeders Calgary is absolutely a blast! Did a team building exercise here and now I'm hooked. Staff provides a safe environment so you can focus on going fast! Indoor track means it can be snowing outside and it doesn't matter. All I can say is that I always leave with a smile on my face:)
  • Great fun, but kinda expensive, and I found the staff to be unaccommodating. Essentially they wouldn't let me remove the helmet's temple padding (just two small pieces of padding at the temple) so i could get my glasses on. Lot's of talk about safety, but in the end just a judgement call, because i went to the Speeder's in Richmond BC, and they did that for me. I ended up calling the company manager in Richmond, and after much fuss, he told the local staff to go ahead and remove the helmet's temple pads. By then i had missed out a round with my team (we were here for team building). Much hassle could have been avoided if they are just kinder and more flexible. I've already signed all kinds to waiver to get into the place so really, safety is not an issue. Not like i wasn't wearing the chin strap or something stupid... Not sure if i'd go back again because i may have to go through the whole drama of requesting they remove the padding :( For those of you with wide plastic framed glasses, wear your contacts, if you have contacts. Or just go elsewhere.
  • I first visited Speeders with my boyfriend last year for a date night and found it to be a bit pricey for a drop in race due to the membership fee. I personally think that it should be optional to become a member for more perks. We have gone back for more races since then, so the membership was worth it for us (looking forward to collecting my free birthday race soon!). I've done a lot of go kart racing at amusement parks over the years and have loved it. My first impression of Speeders was that it was a lot more formal, more rules, more focus on safety and even provide you with a full face helmet (the head sock is appreciated for hygienic reasons). After watching the instructional video, I have to admit, I was a bit intimidated. I was scared that I was going to get kicked out of my first ever race for not knowing all the rules. The first few laps were at a slower speed to get you used to the kart and track and then the speed picks up to end off the race. As I got more races under my belt, the rules started to make sense and it really helped in passing other karts and staying safe on the track. I really love the ranking stats sheet provided at the end of the race: a) for bragging rights and b) you can keep track of your progress from one race to another. My boyfriend and I now regularly attend Speeders for date night every few months to fulfill our need for speed and we've enjoyed every visit! I would love to see a ladies league. I've attended about 13 races now and I'm frequently the only female racer...which was intimidating at first. I am happy to race amongst the guys now but having the option for the two leagues may make Speeders a bit more approachable for more female racers to start coming.
  • I typically don't leave reviews on things, mostly because I'm a little lazy, but there are some pretty odd complaints that I read through down below, and thought that I might share my two cents. My girlfriend and I decided to give this place a shot last year in the summer. We paid our membership fees, and signed up for a single race. Yeah, the the fee sucks, but you get a free race on your birthday month, so, whatever, it all works out. When you're new, you start with a safety video, and then your first couple of laps are slow, so that the staff can see if you can actually drive, and so that you can learn the course. After that, they give you full power. We had a bunch of spins, skids, drifts, and one guy slammed the wall pretty hard. Yeah, the staff slowed the group down and warnings were given, but so what? Are they just supposed to let us hit each other? I found that, if you show them that you're listening to their warnings, and trying to improve, they chill out and let you get away with bending the rules a bit. You just can't drive like an idiot. We decided to do another race, and ended up in a smaller group. That was awesome. No slow downs, no spins, no wall hits, nothing. Just people working on improving their times, and then lots of congratulations for a sweet race at the end. That got us hooked. We've done just over 12 races over a year and a bit. Both my girlfriend and I like the place. We find that the staff are really friendly, if you're not an ass to them, and they will even give you tips on better lines and going faster. We're definitely going to keep coming. On a side note, Speeders, you guys REALLY need to put together a women's league! I can assure you that my girlfriend would be more than happy to compete in it.
