Reviewed 17 July 2014

The karts themselves are fast....very fast! This was a fun experience albeit on the pricey side. Make sure to bring your credit card if you want to race more than once.

“Speed rush”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

An experience for the novice racing enthusiast. Family fun especially if you have teens or young drivers. The speed is enough to make your appreciate what goes on in racing for real. For young and old alike. Appreciated the Crew allowing my taller 15 year old to run in the adult cars. I should have explained to my kids that we race against the clock and not each other. One son was expecting a more traditional announcement of "Start/Go" instead of just taking off and running.
Ventilation was an issue with me, as I heated up and had to stop before the session was over because the motion was getting to me. I still enjoy the experience of the speed.
The staff was great, including taking time to explain some finer points of dos and don'ts in racing around the track to our group.
Safety concern came across as a big issue for the staff as they seemed to ensure all was in order and we'd have a great experience.

In the lobby, the slot car option is fantastic. It's great to see and be able to experience this hobby.
Facility is very clean and taken care of properly.

“Whoa, now that's fast!”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

all I can say is that the staff here is one of a kind, they walked us (parents) through the whole process of riding the karts, before we decided to let our boys race. As a mom, it was kinda of scary at how fast those karts can go, but the safety that is taught and monitored is reassuring.
Good times

“What a BLAST!!”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

Stopped here on our way to a Reds game in Cincinnati. Very easy to get to from I-75 exit 15.
It was our first time, so we registered each person (name, age, etc) into their computer, watched a 5 minute safety video, and selected helmets. Requirements when we were there were at least 8 years old and at least 48 inches tall.
The family 4 pack allowed us to race together in the "youth" race - cars that top out at about 25 mph. It was great fun just the four of us racing through the track together, and it gave our 2 children a chance to get to know the track without the pressure of other people racing with them. The races are 8 minutes which is about 6-9 laps around the track.
My wife and I also raced in the "adult" race, in cars that go about 40 mph. It was intense and so much fun its hard to describe. Both of us were exhausted when the race was over. The kids then raced together in one more youth race, just the two of them.
We had a blast. My 8 year old son thought it was the funnest thing he had even done and can't wait to go back.
Family 4 pk - 2 adult races, 2 youth races, 4 head socks = $65
youth races 2 for $28
We paid $121 and the 2 kids got to race twice, my wife and I each raced once with them in the youth race, then each raced once in the adult race.
Staff was extremely polite, helpful, professional - went out of their way to make us feel comfortable when they found out it was our first time there. We will definitely stop back
