Our Enhanced Sanitation Procedures

 

I took my son here for some much needed fun, staff was informative and Jada was excellent at customer service. Facility was clean and organized, hand sanitizers stations and masks were given for the riders for face protection which is highly recommended. Food was good as well and I will definitely be returning again very soon. I love that the pics pop up and staff comes and gets you for your race so that your fun continues.

- April S.

My boyfriend and I came in for our one year anniversary and a blast! The staff was extremely helpful since it was our first time in! They’re keeping things super clean and safe from racing to COVID-19. Definitely a fun and family friendly place! We’ll be back!

- Natalie Marion

My Need for Speed was quenched this weekend. My family was treated like ALL STARS, and this is why I\'ve selected ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️!! And as for safety and cleanliness... Let\'s just say, I felt safer there than any Walmart or Grocery store.

- Eric Holmes

Great time with the family. They have taken extreme caution to keep the place clean, required face masks and had plenty hand sanitizer. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

- Kristine Williams

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ We had a great time! The staff was friendly. And as far as COVID goes, everything was safe. They had to ask some women to leave who were not following the mask guidelines. Great place.

- Bret Williams

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ We were in town for a baseball tourney and were looking for some indoor fun. This place was “Covid” ready, with sanitizers and social distancing enforced. All employees were safety conscious and very helpful.

- Robert Post

COVID-19: Sanitation stations were everywhere and all employees seemed to adhere to safety policies.  Had a wonderful time & I’m sure anyone that visits will say the same.

- Justin G.

The staff is so nice and does a great job keeping the kids safe. My son loves racing here.

- T Smith

Excellent place for an adult date night!! Karting, Drinks & Food, along with good hospitality from our waitresses Kara and Issac.

- M Stewart

The price is so worth it!! High speed fun. Axe throwing, an arcade and a bar. Recommend for any group looking for fast fun.

- Warren Baczynski

This place is OFF THE CHAIN (street parlance) OMG I had so much fun. I'll be back!!!

- Eddie Meeks III

Hello David thanks for reaching out to leave a review, you have an awesome facility that has always made room for excitement and fun the front desk ladies Bethany & Cindy delivered amazing service & with being a returning customer I must say, it’s a big difference very outgoing and explained every detail, with the steps of service. Upon my second time visiting the restaurant, which the manager Isacc explained they just opened the inside today & they have took a lot of precautions that I noticed with keeping everyone safe, from the disposable plates & silverware and also plastic drinkware, I appreciated that. Charles the go kart attendant helped me through every step with adjusting the pedals and making sure I was secure in my kart, thanks again and I will be returning within the near feature.read more

This was my first time and I enjoyed it so much. when I walked in Jacob was friendly and greeted me with a smile. He helped me get registered. after that Cindy informed me about how I could get free races and who doesn't like free stuff. I wanted to give a shout out to Charles for helping me out so much when I got to the pit. The go-karts were fast and the arcade was fun. I would definitely come back and bring some more of my friends with me next time.read more

Came here for the first time today with a friend and we had a fantastic time! The young lady who checked us in was very pleasant and patient with us through the registration process, then explained how everything worked via an iPad. The go-karts scoot along nicely and handle well, particularly along the hairpin turns. You can really feel it kick in to high gear at times and I loved being able to get it up to a pretty decent speed as I floored it along the straightaway. The main guy who flagged and made sure we were all set to race (I think his name is Tom Doyle) was very good. He even took care of a situation for us which was really impressive. I also like how you have the reporting sheets after each race, and the racer's picture as well as the car number to follow along, thereby allowing for efficiency. I would say the only negative was the number of times we had to stop. I realize there are participants of various skill levels and safety is a priority. It just seemed the remote control imposed speed limit was on quite a few times which kept us from speeding it up as much as we would have liked, thus putting a drag on it. All in all, an excellent experience. I've always enjoyed go-karts, but the electric mechanism (no nasty exhaust fumes) and the speed at which you can race, as well as the indoor arrangement to offset poor weather is a super idea. We'll be back and will tell others.read more
