“Charity Endurance Race”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

On Tuesday night 20th May we held a charity fundraiser for Kiran's Trust. Our thanks go to the Xtreme team for making the evening so much fun for us all. Some of the drivers are older hands at this, others novices…me included. However the evening was a total success as far as I’m concerned and that is down to the venue and your team. It sounds as though we’ll be back next year!!!

“Mini GP”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

Had a group work night out here and really enjoyed the experience.
The only down side is having to pay £1 for a balaclava for added comfort in a helmet. I understand that it's a way of making a few extra £ as a business but as a hidden cost it would be nice to just be given to you as part of the deal.

Overall the whole experience was excellent and coming 1st just made the experience even sweeter.

The go karts are a little slow at accelerating out of corners but after a few laps drifting them around the corners becomes allot of fun. The biggest enjoyment comes from completing a lap without touching the breaks, this can be done.

Would highly recommend this place, staff are friendly and quiet lenient when it comes to minor scuffles in the corners.

Have been before and will visit again.
