Super clean, very kind staff, and a lot of fun. Only did axe throwing and it was so much fun. We went with a group and the staff that hosted us did training and then ran some games. We had a blast playing against teams. No idea what our group rate was, but did ask and it's $30 a person for an hour and a half.read more

Great place for adults and kids to have fun! Great food with very reasonable prices (kids meal includes drink & game card for a good price). Kids loved playing at the arcade while the adults were riding or waiting in-between races. Will be back again.read more

Service is slow, and food was poor/cold. Only thing I enjoyed was the actual cart racing and axe throwing. Go for the entertainment, not for dinner and drinks.

Track

At 75,000 sq. ft., our massive, state-of-the-art indoor karting facility in the Tinley Park, Mokena, IL area offers speed lovers the thrill of racing F1-inspired karts at speeds of up to 50 mph! Accelerate Indoor Speedway Chicago features two indoor Grand Prix-style tracks and high-speed electric Italian pro-karts for adult and junior racers. Conveniently located in Will County off I-80 between Harlem Avenue and LaGrange Road in the Chicago Southland. In addition, it also offers a full arcade with the latest games and redemption prizes, meeting rooms and a full restaurant and bar. Perfect for thrill-seekers, corporate events, team building and parties!

    LOCATION FEATURES

    TRACK TIPS

  • Stay inside for all turns except the hairpin
  • Watch for the back-to-back hairpin turns
  • Enter the straight away wide to set you up for the first corner
  • Enter turns slowly, exit turns fast
  • Stay on the inside when entering corners to reduce lap times
  • Hard turns will reduce your speed - let off gas or tap the brake so you do not lose all of your speed
