Went on Saturday for a birthday party with a group of friends and our kids. Had an absolute blast! This place is fun itself being 50mph karts, but the staff really allow this venue to be an adrenaline... read more »
The indoor track was fun and loud. The cost for two boys to race 3 times was $60. We took son and a friend for his birthday. I saw someone get caught in the "track." The track is not permanent. It app... read more »
Our Grandchildren aged 11 and 12 had the most exciting time on the 50mph go-carts. Challenging one another to race their fastest laps. We bought the 3 race package and their driving improvement from t... read more »
Like many reviews stated, some of the staff are very disrespectful. The karts are in bad shape and they seem to turn off, or lose power at times, as I've seen this happen twice. I recommend racing with friends as some people on this track can't drive worth anything. There are no bumping signs EVERYWHERE, but when someone rams into a kart at full speed or causes an accident, nothing is done. Nothing. Not a thing. Why have the signs everywhere if you don't enforce it? People will try to put their kart between a kart and the wall with an inch of space. They drive better on the streets, and that's saying something. I saw one large accident and was part seprate chain pile up due to people not knowing how to pass. If you absolutely have to come, race with friends.
This has gone from a 5 stars to just a 3 stars.... Is it fun??? Yes.... Depending on the Go Kart you have.... some are really in poor shape.... That is the biggest reason for the down score... They Advertising that these Go Karts go 50 mph.... So I had my radar gun and it is no where near 50 mph.... The top speed is 24 mph... Is that quick for the indoor track yes it is, but it is no where near what they advertise.... It gets super hot inside and plan on sweating a lot... The staff is just okay.... They are not super friendly but not rude just their doing a job.... They are just matter of fact... Lastly they advertising racing for 14 laps... The first few laps the Go Karts go super slow before they have full power... Today I get 14 laps but the people I was racing got only 10 laps... Yes they got the same time I did racing but the did not get the full 14 laps... Maybe they need to make it clear the first one to 14 laps wins and it is everyone last lap... Also the use of the White Flag to say last lap would be nice...
I love the action, love the pace, love the atmosphere. Just wish they could do something about the amount of people, sometimes you'll end up racing with too many people on the track and some are just straight up rude racers.
It would be the most fun place 2 die or 2 watch ur kid die. The people working their are not their 2 get crazy old men 2 stop ramming into 10 year old's. They are their 2 pull karts off of the top of other karts when crazy old men feel like ramming little kids and it goes wrong. They are there 2 pry little girls out of mangled go karts. After old men hit them going full speed on purpose becuase the kid is not going fast enough for them. Not 1 time did I here or see any employee tell anyone 2 stop ramming people full speed. Or say anything that could have made it safer.This place is literally one of the most dangerous places I have ever experienced. 2 serious crashes happened in the span of 5 mins. The worst one. A grown man hit a little girl so hard that the kart jumped on top of her kart bent the head protection(steel bars)down onto her head pinning her head down and stuck her in the kart. There was a bunch of guys trying 2 get this traumatized crying little girl out. It was exactly like a real car accident. Except it was not an accident. The guy did it on purpose and didn't even give crap about it. They didn't tell the guy 2 leave or calm down or anything. Safety and fun is not what u get here. I would literally take my 10 and 15 year old boys bungy jumping before I went back 2 this place. I am completely serious when I say bungy jumping is safer then driving a go kart at this place. When I told the guy in glasses that seemed 2 be in charge of the floor what was going on. He told me I shold come when its not 2 crowded. Maybe instead of worring about making every penny that you can. You could worry about the little kids getting hurt and traumatized. If its 2 many people coming for you 2 keep order and safety. Maybe hire a few more people for the crowded days. Way 2 much money 2 pay for whiplash or 2 watch a kid get killed. If you are into cutting yourself or planning a suicide. This is the place for you.
This place was so much fun but the employees could be trained to be nicer. Not the best customer service.
