Family holiday we all had many laughs and great fun overtaking each other. This is expensive if you have a few kids but good fun.

Need a buggy to get here (not sure if the orange or purple bus goes past this venue). Track was wonderfully maintained and staff were very courteous and made sure everyone understood the safety rules. We went later in the day just before closing so there wasn't that many people there. As with any Go Karting, was quite expensive but... More

A group of oldies did the Go Kart thing, and had a great time. The staff were very good about training and safety, and if you have a drivers license, you can do this activity. The Karts are safe and fun to drive up and down the hilly bits. Recommended.

What an awesome track and great fun for all ages but what a lovely gentleman Jordan was. He stepped us through the process and made the yougest look cool with his race goggles on and even offered the eldest a couple of laps in a single kart for taking the younger one in a double! Excellent customer service would definitely... More

Staff there was excellent. Our little 5 year old even like it! We didn't plan on going there but stumbled on it and the kids begged. Luckily it was happy hour and worth every thrill cent!

16 y.o. daughter and her Dad went scooting around the track. Great idea for her to gain confidence as a new Learner driver and learn to steer. Lots of fun with her Dad - both of them loved it. Great staff, very helpful and reasonably priced.

During our week on Hamilton Island we went go karting twice. The first time was so much fun. With fantastic staff, excellent karts, and a really challenging track, we all had such a great time we went again 3 days later. Same again, great facilities, and staff, and again our 16yo son beat us all. Go there, do it, you... More

We went at Happy Hour and the wait was over 1hr and 30 mins. They just kept us in the line and we went back to the Marina for lunch. The carts were fast, clean and very professional. The staff really wanted you to enjoy and have fun. The celebrity board was a great inspiration to go faster. My son... More
