Overview

We are Northern Ireland's newest and most exciting indoor racing circuit. High powered brand new Sodi karts for Adults and Juniors over the age of 8 years are all welcome to come and feel the thrill and excitement of our 400m circuit and purpose built facility. We at Campsie Karting Centre now have the largest Indoor Paintball Arena in Northern Ireland. Our Arena is based on Tournament Style Paintball, and the games are recognised Internationally as the best formats for Paintball completions. We use low impact Paintball Markers and .50Cal Paint-balls, as a result it does not hit as hard but is a lot more accurate.The cost for almost two hours off fun is £25 including 300 Paint-balls. And now a 18 hole Crazy Golf course. We also have Bubble Football and Archery Tag.

Hi Tessie, having looked at your review, I think you have put it up on the wrong Karting Centre, Firstly we don't do aggressive or lost tempers here, and secondly, the maximum time we do on our karts is 30 minutes and the very most...More

We thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon karting in Derry; £60 for half an hour for three people. The kids loved it and we’d definitely go again. Thank you.

Not that I’m aware of. There were no signs up to say there was a limit. They were very keen on safety though and I’m sure they wouldn’t put any customers at risk.
