This was a hit with all 6 of us (a work christmas party). A fun experience for novices and the more experienced kart driver. We had chosen the Touring Karts experience and this was just perfect for us.

Hello Bosleyh, I have just had the chance to talk all of my staff that were working that evening.

I took my two grandsons carting, then into the Room2Race and on the way out they played a game of pool. They had a great time made all the more enjoyable by Marty and Stuart. The staff in the centre are really friendly and very helpful. Thanks boys.

Took my two boys - half an hour carting was £28 each....the karts were solid and seemed safe. Decent briefing, friendly staff. I won fastest lap. It was great fun. Also played snooker and would have done paint ball but there weren't enough people around ....
