“Damn that's fun !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2013

we have been going to Aruba for 10+ years, this one activity seems to keep everyone smiling for hours. Last year our family went racing three seperate times and dropped alot of money and didn't regret it one bit !! This year, the same thing. Three trips (beware, a quick trip easily turns into two or three hours) the balance of the day your face hurts from all the smiling you are doing inside the helmets. The best bang for your vacation money, far better than the wet bikes. Rumor has it they are going to shorten up the track, (the long straight aways have the carts bringing to much speed into the hairpins) causing to much wear on the brakes and tires. hope it stays a rumor!! The rumble strips are awesome for catching the carts before you get into trouble. Try it once and you will be hooked, just like us !!!

“Do it, in spite of the attendants”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2013

First off, this is a really fun thing to do to kill and hour and its only a 10 minute drive from the high rise area. I recommend it, the karts definitely get up to the 40-50mph range and you get to feel like the stig!

That said, the girl at the bar who sold us the tickets was super nice, but the dude who was in charge of setting us up and getting us off the line literally couldn't be bothered. Headphones in, didn't care AT ALL and then gave us weird looks when we started to just suit ourselves up and yelled at us. Instead of helping us size a helmet, he just sat there harassing the girl, who was sweet enough to actually help us figure out what we needed to do.

Not the most happenin' place, but if you have a lazy afternoon and want to get a little adrenaline, this was a great way to do it. Cheap as well and I've never been on go-karts in the states even half as fast.

“Speed Racer!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2013

Well organized and good safe equipment. Nice place for the kids to ride some top notch go-carts. Carts are fast and the track is a lot of fun. Also with a bar on site to enjoy a beverage while the kids are racing. They have a kitchen with some BBQ items that look great, but did not eat. A little tricky to find, but follow the dirt road directly behind ling and sons grocery.

“Fun for all the family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2013

As a Father I am always hesitant about the safety of these rides for my kids. Bushri karting were awesome all the way, the safety gear was top notch and it was evident that they enjoyed there jobs. My kids had so much fun we went back twice. Lucky they offer discounts for goin back twice so that was easy on the wallet.
Thankyou thankyou thankyou
