Bday party

Great place for a bday party. There a little too strict on the 48" rule, but I can see why. Friendly staff, great facilities, clean and helpful.

The racetrack is fun, but the facility could use some work. The cafe is a joke. 4-hour-old popcorn and no soft pretzels made. The arcade area is tiny. With the wait times I experienced today, they need much more to keep you entertained while you wait. The race track is fun. But when it's crowded (full compliment of racers per... More

We checked into our hotel and saw a brochure for K-1. It looked like fun, and the brochure even advertised a weekday discount package for walk-ins! So we walked in ... Only to discover that the chances of you walking in and taking advantage of their offer were 'slim and none.' As we walked in, there was a sign inside... More

The place is spacious and nice, and being electric less noise and exhaust smell than GoKart Racer. The thing caught me by surprise was the different driving style needed vs gas karts. If you go into a turn too hot, instead of sliding the electric power is reduced and you end up in a crawl. It then takes a while... More

We decided to attend while we were in town. Check in was just OK the person not friendly. We attended on Friday and we had to wait 45 mins before we can run 12 laps that cost $25.00 per person. Check in at Yelp and receive $5 off. They had nice leather couches to relax in before our race. There... More

A spur of the moment idea with a couple of colleagues on a Tuesday night. Races with maximum 8 racers, Marshall's waiving at slower drivers to pull over, a few crunches and wipe outs, helmets for all drivers along with instructions..no injuries and all together fun... Just remember when you get in your car to go home...you're not in the... More

The track is good and the drive around the track was enjoyable. The staff on site seemed friendly and helpful when we were there. However, I had a bad experience with their customer service after the visit. I called in twice a few weeks later requesting them to email me a copy of the receipt which they promised to do... More
