  • This place is a little out of the city, but its worth the trip. Good fun, well organised and not badly priced. We did the GrandPrix style racing, which was three races with about 14-16 laps each, and ...  read more »
  • A group of my colleagues and I are now frequent visitors to K1 because of how much of a blast it is! We work for a major automaker and are all enthusiasts of anything with wheels on it. We can't get e...  read more »
  • Fun interaction for all! Even spectators have fun! Complete experience with medals and photos for the winners! Very clean establishment! 
  • Absolute blast! These are electric go karts which means no noise and lots of torque. The track is a fun short circuit with plenty of technical turns, although no high speed straights. But you get a cool overview of your performance after every race
  • Lots of fun, but at times frustrating. Depending on your group (or what group you get put in) you can end up with fast or slow people on the track. At least if you're trying to get a fastest time it can be frustrating to deal with people that won't get out of the way. There's also artificial speed limiters that are programmed by the track master. At times I feel like I can barely accelerate, while one time I felt like I was driving a rocket. It is fun to feel what it's like to "race", but I wish there was a better way for them to organize people that are there for casual fun vs. a speedy thrill ride.
  • Waited a whole hour just to get our named called to race. Then we sat and waited for one (1) child to do an entire race by himself, while two groups of people sat in their karts waiting to start. In the end we spent 2 1/2 hours waiting around just to do 9 minutes of racing. Additionally the couple that bought their race immediately before us ended up doing their race 2 groups before us, which makes no sense. Overall the racing wasn't bad but the wait time is ridiculous.
  • 4 From the first money we arrived, up until the time we left we had nothing other than a horrible time!!!! The counter boy is Alex, and besides chatting up a storm with every single person in front of us (for which there was a line), he was completely clueless about how the Groupon worked. After all that was done he told us it would be at least 90 minutes to wait before our first ride. They sb I'll bkkuz9
  • I'm generally a fan. Waits can be long, but a planned group outing can mitigate a lot of that. You don't even need that many folks to count it is a group.
