“Most fun you can have on four wheels”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

I visited extreme karting on a stag do visit to Scotland and found the staff really polite and helpful. Although I felt worse for wear from the night before the karting sessions are structured well so three teams of up to eight drivers are either on the track in the karts or getting helmets on which allows for short periods between races so your not left bored or waiting around. Overall experience brilliant and would recommend.

Extreme kombat (lazer tag) although I mistakenly thought I had booked air soft and was disappointed when told it was lazer tag. I was pleasantly surprised how much fun this was. Health and safety/insurance companies have spoiled the real potential on this as you are not allowed on over or in obstacles on the course so your inner Rambo cannot be released. This said we really enjoyed the day and found the instructor very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.

Only negative is the free lunch which was a horrible hotdog.

To surmise, excellent service, value for money and experience for all.

“Well organised, well run”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

From the moment you walk in you can tell this is a well run company. Clean, tidy and a great welcome - they are pleased to see you. Safety is the primary concern and after being kitted out with (in some cases a figure hugging) driver's suit there is a safety video which the instructor then reiterates making sure all is understood. Then to the racing. More safety briefings from the on track staff and then your off. The karts all appear well maintained and there is a viewing area to watch the mechanic servicing the vehicles. The course provides a reasonable race circuit but as with all of these things they are trying to cater for a huge mix of ages and abilities. The computer readouts at the end of each race are a nice touch and as an added extra your results can be emailed to you if you wish. The medal presentation is what it is - 1st, 2nd and third places get a medal and can stand on the podium. All in all an excellent day out, well run and well priced. Food and drinks, hot and cold, are available and the toilets like the rest of the premises were spotless.

“Stag Do”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

We done the karting as part of my mates stag do and had a great time. There were 10 of us in the party so we had the track to ourselves which was awesome. The team were really good and explained everything we needed to know and were understanding of the competitive nature favouring telling some of the group to calm down as opposed to stopping the race repatedly which was good.

We had 2 ten lap heats then a ten lap finale with presentation at the end which was the time for those further down to come up with their excuses.

All in all the boys had a great time and were well up for doing it again.
