Overview

We have a huge fast flowing 500+ Metre indoor track, the biggest of its kind in Cumbria with top of the range Sodi Go Karts reaching a top speed of upto 40mph. We now have an extra fleet of Go-Karts which are even faster, 270cc Adult karts... let the fun begin We are a family run business and have been open 5 years now. We have a high tech 4 lane bowling alley in the same building, with a cafe, arcades and a fully licenced bar, Great fun for all the family. You can make a day of it and it is the closest Karting or Bowling to Coniston, Lake District and all of our Karts and Bowling Lanes are very well maintained... 5* Hygiene rating We are most likely the only company in the uk to host Go Karting and Bowling under the same roof, so what are you waiting for... you will never forget a day out if you come here. Fun for all ages and safety is No.1 we have a fantastic safety record. All employees are fully trained, polite// informative and experienced and will do their best to ensure you have a brilliant time

We went here for grand children to get carting experience and a certificate of competency, we enjoyed it enormously, but found the tea and coffee facilities to be basic and this detracted from the visit. Sadly we have heard its now closed, great shame.

Staff is very rude and didn't like the hidden charges if you're Paying by card ! That's completely unfair because no one carries £100 cash and even if you're charging the customer extra for paying by card then let them know beforehand rather than surprising...More
