  • Good go kart races, plus axe throwing! Indoor track was well designed, and karts seemed fast enough. 4 lanes of axe throwing. Membership option for go karts helps with price for repeat races. Just...  more »
  • Ok, so $50 is a lot to spend for two people for about 20 minutes. That said, my partner and I showed up on a Sunday afternoon in the parking lot of a warehouse park, filled out the online form...  more »
  • Mid-Atlantic Grand Prix leaves much to be desired as far as a karting experience goes. First, there is the track itself: The track is an indoor racetrack situated in an industrial unit. This results in a very slippery floor and a very short track, taking only 30 seconds to complete a lap. The track itself has no fun corners or long straightaways. Just hairpins and 90-degree bends. Due to the track's surface and geometry, crashes and spins are very common. One crash will ruin your entire 8-minute, $20 race (whether you were involved or not). Pricing for non-members is almost double the dollar-per-minute price of some other locations I have visited. Much lower value-for-money for what is a much less enjoyable experience. That being said, this place has its good bits: Events are quite common and staff are very nice. If there is an accident on the track staff are quick to suspend racing to ensure your safety. Kids and beginners will love this place. As a first experience in a kart this place will be great! The lower speeds and simple corners (turns) allow them to get to grips with driving with no prior knowledge of the apex, cornering speeds, or braking zones. Be careful if you kid is too young, as a crash could seriously hurt him/her (keep in mind this fact is at no fault to Mid-Atlantic, as they try to avoid instances like a kid's birthday party and a bachelor party together). The Verdict: Great for kids and beginners, but not avid racers or even with experience elsewhere.
  • The races here are fast-paced and intense. Every lap you feel like next lap is going to be your best time yet. It’s hard not to be competitive here. The staff is great and 8 minute races last much longer than you think.
