The track is very challenging with lots of turns and challenges. The price is reasonable and the bar at the track perfect!

It's a friendly group of people who provide an awesome time! I went through with 4 friends and we had an absolute blast. It's an awesome way to clear the mind after work.

The high speed go-carting was soo much fun. It was expensive and we had to wait so I would recommend booking online so wait isn't very long. The biggest complaint is the helmets -- they give you a sleeve but it is still pretty gross.
