"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.

"Fastest Karts around!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed May 11, 2018 NEW
This is truly the fastest, nicest track in town. Our entire family LOVED these Go-karts and we couldn't believe how much fun it is. The staff are fun and friendly. The building was clean and air conditioned. Bathrooms were spotless. But, the best part was how fast the go-karts were. We never expected them to be so much fun! So much better than the typical karts around town. Worth every penny! We intend to visit again very soon.

"Amazing First Visit"

Reviewed April 21, 2018
Last night my son decided to try Go-Karts for the first time. We tried another place we won’t mention and he was “too small” to drive alone. We walked into Xtreme with no hopes of him actually being able to drive. As he walked over to measure his height, we were met by Michael. Turns out little man was tall enough for the slower karts! Michael talked my son through everything and gave him some pads to make extra sure he was secured by the harness. You could tell that Michael was excited to be helping a first time kid.. My son was over the moon happy. His adrenaline was going for hours after that! Michael truly helped my little man have the BEST possible first experience with go-karts.
