Went with my dad and my 3yr old grandson wo wanted to fly the aero plane. The staff were very friendly and very accommodating. The young man who took us to the plane was very polite and friendly and a credit to himself and his employers. He let my grandson and my dad spend as much time flying the plane as they wanted and never hurried us. My dad used to make aero engines in the rolls Royce factory. We also watched the go carts and seen the cafe all which looked clean and well organized. We will definaltey return. Take a bow experience staff you made an old man and his great grandson very happy.

Really friendly reception.
Good instruction and full, decent quality overalls and helmets
The Karts are electric so no stinking exhaust fumes
The Karts speed is set from a Control Office above the track.The better you drive or perform the faster they let you drive so it`s really safe for kids or inexperienced drivers.
We went with a group of adults with disabilities. The staff are trained to work with people of all ages and abilities and were really professional and really nice.
They have 2 seater karts which are perfect for anyone who can`t or doesn`t want to drive.
They have a cafe downstairs. (We used the sitting/ observation area upstairs where the guys had a packed lunch)
Overall, a brilliant day
