Way over priced for what you get, try and get a discount if you can.

I ended up here after purchasing a certificate on WagJag to get 10 laps for $20. You are not allowed to share the laps, so when my girlfriend decided to come on the trip I called... read more

We took a group of 7 children here for my son's birthday party. The service and overall experience was fantastic. The owner took very good care of us, and he really went the extra mile to ensure that we all had a great experience. We all had a great time (parents included) will be back again, for sure.

I ended up here after purchasing a certificate on WagJag to get 10 laps for $20. You are not allowed to share the laps, so when my girlfriend decided to come on the trip I called to ask if she could ride with me. The gentleman who answered the phone was rather condescending, but did end up offering the SAME... More

This location was advertised at Carriage Hills Resort, so we thought we would swing past. We went on Toonie Tuesday which meant it was $2.50/lap. Our 7 year old son was in the go-kart with me, while my husband had his own. It cost $33.90 (incl tax) for 6 laps for the two carts. Nabil, the employee who sold the... More

We visited here on July 2015 and it basically ruined our whole trip. Extremely Rude Customer Service: So basically we walked in and he told us to sit on a bench on the side and read his safety leaflet. Then he asked us who call the shots here? (apparently that means who is going to pay for it) and told... More

- we were the firsts one there and immediately were told to sit aside and disregarded us while he helped other people. - VERY discriminatory (based on race) - when we were looking through the packages and prices for tickets, Nabil (owner?) rudely told us to get out of the way. - VERY overpriced: 1 lap is roughly a minute...

"This is better than going to camp" my son said after go-karting at Shanty Bay. There are two go-karting areas, 1/4 km for younger kids and 1 km courses for older kids and adults. Mini golf is also available for those waiting. It is a bit run down looking but don't let that fool you. It's a fun course. Tip:... More

This place is in a building just off of highway 11 southbound , north of Barrie There is a Mcdoanlds inside as well. The bathrooms are the most rundown filthiest bathrooms I have ever encountered. I would not let my dog use them. Who ever is responsible for those should be ashamed of themselves. Do yourself a favour and stay... More
