Tip is to go karting between 12 and 1 pm when it's happy hour. You get more value an 10 minutes feels like an age when are driving karts. Great staff friendly and personable run this place. Karts are fast and they have duo karts to carry 2 people. They supply enclosed shoes and sock if you turn up in... More

My two daughters and I had a ride on the go kart track and had an absolute blast. From the start let me say it is VERY expensive, around $50 for 10mins, however everything on Hamilton Island is VERY expensive. The staff were great and enthusiastic. I had two daughters with me, the youngest 12, and she handled the go... More

All the kids adult ones included loved it , petty we had bad weather which shuts it down when it rains due to slippery track. Even my not so confident girly daughter loved it

As with any Go Karting, was quite expensive but... More

A group of oldies did the Go Kart thing, and had a great time. The staff were very good about training and safety, and if you have a drivers license, you can do this activity. The Karts are safe and fun to drive up and down the hilly bits. Recommended.
