“Good time, expensive”

Full Throttle Speedway
Ranked #15 of 40 things to do in Nags Head
Attraction details
Reviewed 1 August 2013

These types of places are always a bit on the expensive side. It's a typical go cart track, we didn't find anything fancy about it. It was a fun activity for nighttime.

We visited Full Throttle twice during our week at OBX, mainly for the go-kart tracks. They have two tracks, a figure-8 track and a circular slick track. Our younger grandchildren (ages 4 and 5) could drive their own cars on the slick track and could also ride with their parents in the two-seaters on the figure-8. There are also carnival-type rides (ferris wheel, tilt-a-whirl, helicopters, train, etc.) and games appropriate for young children. The kids loved it, but the rides are not cheap.

wish the ride was a bit longer for $10. The track was a fun figure 8. The cars went pretty fast for the kids. Don't rub in the corners though as they will shut down your gas.

Took two 15 year olds here during our trip. The price was steep - $9.50 each for a 4-5 minute ride. What made it worse was that they controlled the karts' speed centrally. At least three times during the 5 minute ride, all cars were slowed to a crawl. I did not see any bumping or crazy driving going on. I asked the operator about it and he said they had to take someone off - which was not true, since I was leaning right on the fence watching the ride. Save your money for something else.

Amusement rides, carnival games, go-karts, and cotton candy. This place has it all. The entire family had a blast when we visited. Would recommend to anyone visiting obx!!
