  • This was my first time, and I loved it. It is a great way to be in the proverbial now. I think it is a great place for a lunch break or a get away on weekend, and it is much better than golf or tennis...  more »
  • I was here a few years ago and had a serious accident where I broke my collar bone when another cart landed on top of me. Staff acted appallingly and would not even call an ambulance or provide any so...  more »

  • Great place to race indoor go carts. Rank based on lap time so skill counts. If you are going fast enough it's a bit of a workout. Good for groups.
  • Parking was easy to find and as per usual K1 is in an industrial complex so on the weekends it's typically easier to find parking. This particular location seemed to be poorly managed. The rules weren't explained as much as other locations which made for a very poor experience. I know that you can't blame other drivers for poor experiences but if they think that their actions were acceptable then you have to blame the employees that failed to tell them the doing specific things isn't allowed. Last time I was here there was a strict rule about bumping into others or driving dangerously around others. The ENTIRE time there was others bumping into me and several other drivers. Whilst watching from the sidelines I also noticed that several other races had a lot of crashes (which slows everyone down) due to people hitting others. Overall, for such a poorly run facility, I think that the prices should be lowered as basically you're just there to do whatever you want with a go-kart underneath you. The staff seem very disinterested in what you want and only are interested in how much you're going to spend. I'm not sure if it was just me but I wasn't getting the best feeling with this particular K1 location. I hope that other people's experiences are much better.
  • This is a great karting facility. One of the best I have ever seen. It is set up as more of a lounge and relax place. With the racing set up in heats or groups so you can get some time to rest between races. Has a racing simulator. And several separated lounge areas for private groups.
  • Had a blast like always and love the fact that my favorite food truck "Kogi Truck" stays there for lunch and dinner which was perfect! Got first place and was Blessed to try out virtual reality for the first time.
  • First time racing here. Definitely enjoyable. Accommodated a group of 10 easily. Last race a car died on lap 4/16, but still a competitive and fun race.
