"Lots of fun if you like "the fast ones""
July, 2015
We chose this attraction because my husband loves go-carts! My husband absolutely loved that these were much faster than the typical go cart. The staff was very good about enforcing the rules to ensure that everyone has an enjoyable experience.

My 13 y/o son’s first time doing extreme racing and he had a BALL!! During the 2nd race one of the racers got caught sideways. Jesse SPRINTED to the spot to correct the driver before the other racers got to that area in the track. As a parent he made me feel very safe. THANK YOU! Will definitely come back!

"First Time Driver"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5

This was my first time ever driving a go cart. We had to register and sign a waiver and watch a short instructional video before driving. I did think it was a little expensive for a 6 minute ride. We had to wait outside (in the heat) for the previous race to finish. I would suggest management putting some fans out there for customers waiting their turn. Havibg never done this before, I expected us to line up and "race", but we did not, each car was let out one after the other. We did two races; the first was 30mph cars, and the second was in 40mph cars. Overall, I enjoyed it.

"Not impressed."
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed September 04, 2018 NEW
Was excited to this track as you have to wear a helmet and that the karts are really fast due to the 2 honda motors on each side. Was not impressed at all. We always visit The Track because we love the wooden track. These karts seemed to ride just same.

"Way overpriced"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5
Reviewed August 27, 2018 NEW
It is fun but it is way overpriced. 72 for two people to ride carts, is crazy! If this was about 40.00 for two people it would be worth it but not at 72 dollars! Don’t waste your money!
