When driving up to the race track it may feel a little strange because of the off roading and the condition of the place. But once you get in there you won't regret it. It was a ton of fun. Loved the scenery it feels like you are on an abandoned race track in the middle if the desert. The track is an excellent track and the go carts are really fast so you are definitely getting your money's worth out if it. The service was ok it was kind if hard to understand the guy with there accent but the rules and the way they opperate are easy to understand and self explanatory. And how often do you get to go go carting on a tropical island in the middle of nowhere? So I would 100% recommend checking it out you will have a lot of fun

What a fun experience. These are real racing carts...no governors on these motors as they rip around the turns. You actually have to use your breaks or you will spin out. They equip you with a racing helmet and visor and give you plenty of time to race. The kids will love it, and the adults to. Moms may be nervous as they will let young ones drive alone. :)

Was OK. Track is ok. Very dirty helmets. Staff was not interested in helping us. I'm surprised they stay in business.

My son and I went as they were opening. My only bad comment is that the kid giving instruction wasn't too into it. Couldn't understand what he said as he mumbled and was facing away. I had to ask the smaller boy whose grandmother owns the facility what was said. Anyway, my son and I had a blast. Back in the states, the tracks and the cars aren't great for 11 year olds. This was a great track with fast cars. Definitely a highlight of our trip. Sorry. Another thing. The seat in my son's car had a hard back. The jostling and the seat gave him a bruise on his back. He doesn't mind, though. He wouldn't have wanted to miss out on this opportunity.

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.
