Owner description: Slideways - Go Karting World is conveniently located just off the M1, just 2 mins north from Dreamworld, providing easy access from all Brisbane, Gold Coast and Logan Regions. Take exit 54 off the M1 and follow the signs. For many years Slideways - Go Karting Australia has brought you the best of indoor karting, now we bring you the very best in outdoor karting! Slideways - Go Karting World features famous tracks from around the world! The European styled International Nürburgring circuit is built for the real racer and one of the best outdoor go kart tracks in the country. The track is 700m long featuring massive undulations, banked corners, sweepers and fast straights. You can race up to 25 of the latest Sodi RX-7 European hire karts. They are powered by ungoverned 4 stroke Honda motors that pump out 9HP, propelling you along at up to 70kph. Speedway racing began in the USA before World War I. Today sees speedway racing in a variety of classes around the world. In an Australian first, Slideways - Go Karting World have built a dirt speedway track, designed specifically for hire karts! Our banked Daytona Speedway track features 10 Sodi 9HP karts, reaching up to 60km/h racers will be able to drift and slide their karts sideways into the bends. Just because you are a kid, doesn't mean you should miss out! The Bathurst track is custom designed just for kids, the new track is 320m long, and is by far one of the most exciting kid's tracks in Australia! Race up to 8 kid's karts at once, all with state of the art safety and kart control equipment, for every parent's peace of mind. Drivers just need to be over 120cm, to drive the karts (usually 7 years and above). We also have 2 seater karts available, which can be driven by an adult, and suitable for passengers between 90-130cm tall. The Monte Carlo track is for the very little ones. Designed for kids 3-6 years, they will be able to drive supercars from around the world, in an electric car version. Ferrari, Lamborghini, Mercedes, and BMW just to name a few, kids are spoiled for choice! Parents can also drive and steer the car for their child via remote, if the child isn't confident. All of our go karts are fitted with individual timing transponders, measuring to an incredible one thousandth of a second, meaning you can track your lap times and more importantly...whether you beat your friends or not. Our state-of-the-art timing system allows you to view all your lap time son the big screen TV!

“Needs an update”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

Been coming here for several years because they were one of the few on the Gold Coast and convenient to Dream World. The course and equipment need some upgrade as nobody likes ruts in the road - especially since there are newer facilities open.

This was fun for all the family and again was quite close to the park we stayed in. They had the odd 'special event' too.

“Great friendly people but pretty dated attraction”
Reviewed 2 October 2013

Go Karting is really fun and we had a good time. However it is the sort of place that looks like it is 30 years old. It could really do with some investment but maybe the economy just isnt good enough

“Do not go here. Save your money and dignity”
Reviewed 5 July 2013 via mobile

I went here with my son thinking it would be fun to go kart again after some time. However, the track was tiny and there was no straight part of the road to accelerate on. The prices were outrageous and the staff tried to pressure sell. It is near Dreamworld so go there instead - much better use of money. A person at Helensvale train station overheard us ranting about our experience and said to us they would now reconsider going there. I would advise to skip this attraction, but it will probably go bankrupt soon I imagine!
