Had a great time with my childhood friends. Nice family place. The staff was pretty friendly, but the wait was a little long waiting for our time to race. I will definitely come back.

Went there with a friend. We chose the curvy track, which is actually pretty short, but challenging and fun. The carts are electrical driven, which in my eyes does not underscore the feel of racing (lack of exhaust fumes). From my experience combustion engine driven carts are more powerful and accelerate faster. The e-drives make it safer for kids though. Overall very well organized joint with excellent safety precautions.read more

We arrived in the early afternoon on a Sunday. The business was not packed but busy. I gave the rating a 5 star because for over a week my 14 year old daughter has repeatedly said she had a great time. We first ate at the restaurant. Our meal took over 45 minutes to arrive and did so in a piecemeal manner. The staff was genuinely apologetic and worked had to fix the mess up but food is the least expensive part of the experience, it should not be the source of frustration.We then registered for our go cart session and played a few games. When the time came for the carts....we had fun.Obviously the daughter,had fun but I secretly had a great time. For 12 laps I wasn't a dad, I was a dude having fun without a care in the world. If I had come alone I would have selfishly bought the 3 race pack and just had a ball.We finished the night playing games for another hour with the $50 game package being more than enough.It's not a cheap date,but it is fairly affordable for a once in a while blowout afternoon. Monday thru Thursday they offer specials and are also considerably less crowded so if we return it is likely to be during the week.read more
