Description:

Slideways - Go Karting Gold Coast is conveniently located just 10 minutes...

Slideways - Go Karting Gold Coast is conveniently located just 10 minutes from Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach, right beside the M1 Motorway at Nerang, providing easy access from all areas of the Gold Coast, Brisbane and Logan regions. Our European style indoor hire kart track features a huge 55m cross over bridge, a cambered berm, tunnel, esses and sweepers. Our unique track surface is designed by Slideways - Go Karting Australia and is like no other in the southern hemisphere, allowing the karts to drift and get Slideways! It also means it takes some skill to achieve a good lap time using smooth steering, throttle and brake control, designed for heart pumping racing action. We only use the best quality go karts at Slideways - Go Karting Gold Coast! We have 20 European state of the art Sodi hire go karts, powered by de-governed 9hp four stroke Honda kart engines! (The majority of hire kart centres use 5.5 or 6.5hp engines) When you team this with the 70kg racing chassis, you end up with very potent karts, unlike any other hire karts you have experienced. We think you shouldn't have to miss out just because you're a kid! Our 2 Seater Karts and Sodi Kids Karts are fitted with the state of the art safety and kart control equipment, for every parent's peace of mind. Drivers just need to be over 120cm, to drive the karts (usually 7 years and above). We also have 2 seater karts available, which can be driven by an adult, and suitable for passengers between 90-130cm tall. Slideways - Go Karting Gold Coast is fun for the whole family! All of our go karts are fitted with individual timing transponders, measuring to an incredible one thousandth of a second, meaning you can track your lap times and more importantly...whether you beat your friends or not. Our state-of-the-art timing system allows you to view all your lap times on the big screen TV! Whether you want to come down on your own and set a hot lap, race a few friends, organise a bucks party, birthday party or corporate event Slideways - Go Karting Gold Coast have got you covered. Our go kart track indoors and not affected by the weather - we are open rain hail or shine 7 days a week from 10am-10pm! This is another 5 star quality go kart hire track by Slideways - Go Karting Australia. Also check out Slideways - Go Karting World and Slideways - Go Karting Brisbane!

The price for the go karting was quite expensive especially because the track is a 30s track and you only do 14 laps. So you're on the track for 7 minutes but pay around $5.50/minute....not great value What I liked about this was the karts are electric which meant they were very fast. Because you're not sitting on a petrol... More

Hi there Mandy, it seems that you might be thinking of a different race track - Slideways Go Karting Gold Coast has petrol powered go karts, 10 minute sessions, and the cheapest prices in South East Queensland, as well as the only three storey track layout in the southern hemisphere. More

Slideways Gold Coast has recently relocated to a better location and manufactured a brand new track which is extremely fun! The only downside is that everytime someone else crashes, you stop and at times you will only do a few laps which are not fun but annoying.

We had six people booked in to do a 3 race session, and although it is not cheap they all felt they had a long enough time during each race to truly get into it.

Booked the track for a group of 10- however a booking error meant we had 6 extra people not from our group racing against us.

Great place. I loved every moment of it. The track is very good and original. Although some parts of the track are electronically controlled to make you slow down (to preserve their go karts from average drivers haha), it was still fun nonetheless. Sometimes it also felt that they could electronically control the angle and speed of your slide especially... More

Cheers for dropping by! We do have controls on the major down ramp from the top floor to the cave in the name of safety, and the karts can be remotely slowed/shut off if there is a yellow/red light on the track, but we won't randomly interfere with the karts unless there is a safety issue on track.
