What a blast

Went Karting as part of a stag do last weekend. Amazing time was had by all and it was very well organised. If you're over 6ft talk you'll need a bigger Kart

paintballing was poorly organised and the small arena is located adjacent to the track on the side of a steep hill. Wasn't expensive but there are plenty of better options. The karting track is great and well set up. Track times are digitally recorded that you get a print out of which is great. Karts appeared to have different power... More

The staff were tremendously helpful despite the soaking rain. They exchanged our suits (provided for all drivers) with full waterproof suits. Fresh gloves and helmet liners. We had a fabulous time and will definitely be back for better lap times in a dry day.

Karting North East has definitely kept improving throughout the years (hence the reason for another review). The track is by far one of the most technical in the England and heaps of fun for young and old. I would say my best karting experience for sure and I feel so lucky to have it on my doorstep!

I went here with a group of 12 friends and the experience was spot on! We spent an hour on the in the go karts, a go on the off road experience and three laps on the rage buggies. I would say the karting is superb and that even though it is expensive it is worth it. The off -... More

Karting North East. A Fabulous venue. Super caring staff. So friendly, with a great sense of humour. You can watch the karting from a nice warm inside viewing area. There is a cafe for drinks (hot and cold) and various pre-packed snacks. At weekends you can enjoy a variety of hot snacks. For the more adventurous of you, get out... More

I have visited KNE three or four times now since living in the North East, most recently in July 16. Having visited numerous other karting facilities throughout the UK and overseas I can say that this is easily one of, if not the best venue I have been to, both in terms of the track itself and the organisation and...
