  • Great place to take a group of friends for a fun night out! The karts are quick and the track is cool. It's definitely best when both inside and outside are open so try to go when the weather is nice.
  • Track marshals tend to regulars. You wont enjoy yourself as a first timer racing at this track. They inform you to "move over", "no bumping" etc, by holding a placard if you get in the way of a regular. They will even reduce the speed of your cart if you dont obey. I was getting bumped left and right by regular racers and nothing happened to them. The track marshal should be fair to everyone. I'll stick to k1 or Go Kart World. You'll need to test and get licensed at Go Kart World to drive the gas big dogs that are 45+ mph. At least the track marshals at either locations treat everyone equal. Even the regular "professional" racers get penalized for not obeying them. First and last for me here.
