“Lots of fun”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

Finding the place wasn't difficult, but on first glance, you may be questioning your decision to visit. You drive off the paved road into what looks like an industrial area behind Ling and Sons, and the main building looks like it hasn't been occupied in years. Once you get past that, you're good to go.

Went midweek and the place was pretty much empty. There were about 9 of us racing (we brought 7), so the competition was just enough to be exciting, but not enough to be a nuisance. Races are about 10-12 minutes depending on the number of people at the speedway. Cars were fast and a little worn, but very driveable. Like another commenter said, the wind guards on the helmets are heavily scratched, but not enough to completely obscure your visibility.

I had to dock a point for the bar not being open. Then again, maybe it was, but there were chairs on the tables and all kinds of restaurant equipment strewn about.

All in all, we had lots of fun, and would've gone back if we had more time. Give it a shot if you have an hour to spare.

We took the kids to this place. Twice!
Not exactly cheap, but OK for a change. I think it was about $20 for 10 mins.
They can have up to about 6 or 8 cars max at one time, so you can just race your family or friends etc and the waiting time isn't long.
The cars go OK as well. My son wiped out, after being cut off by his mother... All good though!
There is a bar there too so you can celebrate your victory.
Don't forget to get your pic taken on the podium!

We had alot of fun. One drawback was that the guards on the helmets were scratched up, which made it kinda difficult to see out of while speeding in the go-cart. It's $18 for 10 minutes and with a brochure, you get $3 off the 2nd go round, and $8 off the 3rd go round.
