“Lots of fun”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

I have driven a variety of go carts and this place was great. They are electric carts so you do not have the exhaust or noise typically associated with go carting.

“What a great race day!”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

I took some of my co-workers from Japan and we had a great time!
The cars are fast and handle well. With the full face helmet and low profile you feel like you are in a race car... I wish it w2as a bit closer as I would go more often.

“Too Much Fun”
Reviewed 24 February 2014

We went on a Saturday around 1pm with 4 people and were racing within about 20 minutes of our sign in process. This is really fun competition. The carts are electric, there are no gas fumes, and the carts are quiet. The only sound you hear are screeching tires! The carts are quick and really give you a taste of racing. It is most fun when everyone in your race likes to compete, as we had one group with some people who really didn't drive well and slowed everyone else down as we tried to lap them. But even with that issue, this was really fun!!

Super fast electric carts. Had a great time with a private race for a birthday party. They can and do throttle your speed which is kind of lame but as long as you drive well they tend to bump you up.

“Great attraction”
Reviewed 4 June 2013

Great attraction for kids and adults, boys above 9 years should not miss it when visiting irvine.
The place was amazing, and the staff were extremely nice and helpfull and at the end of the race participants will be handled a paper that summarize theresult of the race and their performance.
The safety at the place is great. You need one to tow hours will be enough.
