Come and visit the home of blokart and have a blast on the land sailing machine, which has taken the world by storm. Super easy to use and great fun, these machines are awesome when the wind blows. We also have our Electric Drift karts, these three-wheeled machines are designed to get you as sideways as you can! Designed in the Bay you no longer need to rely on the wind! Kiosk and BBQ Available for hire - great for a Staff Function, Stag and Hen do's, birthday parties, or just an afternoon of fun! Bookings essential. Minimum age 8 years old.

On a windless day (not for blokarts) we tried the drift bikes for some brilliant fun. From what I understand these are invented and made on site. The young staff could possibly be a bit more polished but it's still a very enjoyable outing.

Visited with friends. We went on a pretty windy day and I ended up flipping my kart 3 times. The staff were very helpful and quick to get to my side. This was my second visit and I would do it again.

Blokarts are best to go mid week on a windy day. It takes a few laps to get the hang of the ropes to let the sail out and pull it in. Cart will get up on two wheels. Number one rule, "Let the rope...More

Great upbeat staff who are very helpful. Highly recommend this activity though it's very cramped if you're tall. Reasonable prices at $30 pp for 30 mins. We had loads of fun and there's something fun here for all ages.

Hi, thanks for your review. Just a correction on price. For one hour session, it is $50, not $60. Our instructors are trained to keep our customers safe. If they decided to swap your sail for the smaller size it is because they could see...More
