“Karting for Kids”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2014

Took the kids karting. Didn't advertise in the website that they weren't doing the older ones on the day we went which was a bit annoying and means will have to come back. But excellent to find a karting place for younger ones. My 5 year old loved it and then the 11 year old. The marshalling was a bit slack and probably could do with doing bit better on their health and safety. They could actually make more of it and a tad on the expensive side, but young children with big smiles and feeling they'd achieved went a long way

“Over rated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2014

Could do so much more as the location is great, easy to get to, elements are good but you need to work at finding a good spot to watch from. Like all karting places pricey.

“good morning for motor heads”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2013

Children 6 and 10. Used Tesco vouchers which made it good value for money. 6 year old went on Bambino carts whilst older child went on bigger karts. Both enjoyed and will go again.

“Bumpy, noisy......fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2013

Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button started their racing careers here...so no pressure. A lap takes about a minute, and you get a 30 minute 'practice' slot.. plenty of time to hone your efforts, learn how you relate to the track and car, and overtake a few people. A good fun time out.
