“Karting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2014

Both the adult and junior kart hired by my 10 year old son and I steered and handled well. Very friendly staff. Just the two of us were out on the 850m circuit at 9am for 30 minutes. Crisp dry fresh air, fantastic. I left with my ego intact as the junior karts are a little slower than the adults. He did a lap in 59.4 secs, I managed 52.456 (cold tyres, too many pies, and not really trying etc...). Great place.

Many thanks to the team at KNE for their friendly, efficient and welcoming service. All 13 of us thoroughly enjoyed the experience and can't wait to return in the not too distant future.

“Fantastic Fun !!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

A well run Karting centre taking health and safety seriously. Enthusiastic and helpful staff. We recently tried the new off road experience in ex army land rover and was great fun with a very helpful instructor. Will definitely keep going back. You get a comprehensive print out of your karting track performance .

“Amazing experience!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014

I loved it when I came here! The track was great! Just not enough time! We only got around 10 minutes! Would most certainly go again! More time and more to do while off the karts is my only suggestions!

“Over too quickly!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014 via mobile

Booked the Rage buggies for 4 friends, looked like something different and a bit more challenging. It didn't disappoint, very fast, bumpy and muddy. Instructors were great, serious on the H&S briefing but also good for a laugh too. The buggies were mental, every bit as good as we had hoped for. My only gripe was that it was a touch expensive, a couple of extra laps would have made it better value for money. All over in 15 mins so I felt that £50 should warrant a longer experience. Overall a great experience that really puts a smile on your face but should have been a bit longer or cheaper.
