“Terrible Experience!”
Reviewed 6 July 2012

The guy in the race track is terrible, kids cannot have fun. Kick out somebody who got bump from behind and accidentally hit the car in front of him. Claiming that the kid bump 3 times. Finally, the manager came out and watch the next race. It's better with the manager around. Definately, they need better employee if not put camera in the race to review the race.

Hockey - safety is our biggest concern especially with children on the track. These karts can go fast. Our track marshals try their best to ensure safety and excitement. Most of the time their calls are spot on. Sometimes if they may make a bad call. People are only asked to get out of a race for their safety and/or the safety of others. Thanks for visiting and thanks for the review. Hopefully next time your in the area you'll give us another try.

“Fun for almost any age; clean, well run, fairly priced”
Reviewed 14 February 2012

One of my favorite things is to race go karts. I've been to several indoor tracks over the years, and I was pleasantly surprised to find this little gem.

The offer weekly specials and membership levels that offer discounts including a free race during your birthday month.

You see all ages here from about 12 to 60. The cars are very fast and you can request to be placed in groups of racers who are more experienced/faster or new/slower. Don't assume by slower I mean slow. But for newbies it will help you get use to the course and the cars if you request to be in a grouping of newer racers. I've seen racers with 23 second laps...very fast. (mine is only 26, and I'm soooo jealous of those 3 seconds!).

It is also a great date night...assuming your gal doesn't mind getting her hair flattened a little by the helmet! Having beat more then one date at go kart racing, I also recommend this activity for determining your potential mate's ego! LOL

You can bring or purchse a headsock. You get to keep it so bring it each time. Their helmets are sanitized between races but I prefer to use a headsock regardless.

They have drink machines onsite. They do birthday parties, offer training clinics and they do have league racing.

There is plenty of parking. It is located behind a rental storage facility so although you can see the sign from the road, you kind of feel like you can't find it. Just pull past the storage facility and you will find a nice brick industrial building -- the track is located inside and is well marked.
