  • I have been to a couple of others K1's and I like this one the best. Seems to be much more efficient and certainly more clean. The cars are zippy enough that you really feel like racing. It is fun to ...  more »

  • Visited K1 speed for an adult birthday party and had a great time. Ten of us raced, first 14 laps as a qualifier and then 16 laps race. The karts are easy to steer, they do take a little strength in t...  more »

  • Loved that they had "manual" transmission carts! Apparently they're somewhat new. They're set up as paddle shifters. Unfortunately, the first race I did, they limited my cart to 2 gears instead of 3. Second race I got to use all 3 gears (because I asked) and was able to improve my times. Third race I apparently did not have the option to use one of the manual carts, as they had to charge or something. Either way, I thoroughly enjoyed the added dimension of shifting while racing. I deducted a star for the fact that they did not have a water fountain and apparently no free water as well as the fact that they didn't run very smoothly. You can get quite parched after a few races and they seemingly want to force you into their drinks. (*Note, I don't know California law, but most states require free water in some fashion.) There was a bunch of down time between races for a while instead of sending one group out as the other finished. They started to get them running quicker as the night went on, but by the point I was about finished.
  • I love this place. This is the second K1 I've been too and they both were amazing. Only complaint is the wait time to drive. If your looking to have fun with a group of friends give this place a try.
  • Really fun karts. Fast enough to haul me around pretty fast, and I'm 200 lbs. Definitely recommend.
  • Had an amazing time. Karts are very fast and track is technical. Your better off buy a package of races than buying them one at a time.
  • My son Rameses really had a blast!!!! Maybe next time he'll finish top 3. Wonderful experience, definitely will go back.
