Lots of fun

Brought my family here. My 15 year old was very disappointed that he had to race with the young kids. Very nice facility although it was quite pricey.

Octane Raceway is a very friendly venue for families or groups, large or small. It is a very professionally run.

Enjoyed the excitement of this raceway, wish I had my grandchildren with me so see it, but took pictures and brochures back to them so that when they go down they can try this out.

2nd time there. Speed is amazing. Never able to get it to top speed before the next turn. Very challenging. Will go again next time I'm in town. Ate at the grill and the food was very good and high quality. If you like speed and a challenge its worth a stop.

fun go-kart racing with a mixed course that has indoor and outdoor sections. start area has the tight turns that bunch everyone up and then the long straight away to break the pack apart. mixed skillsets of racers doesn't cause a problem for those on each end of the spectrum. get out there and do your thing. good food choices....

Octane Raceway consists of a nice indoor facility, complete with a lunch bar, seating indoors and a lounge area outside, two sets of rest room, lockers, and meeting rooms. The road course runs indoors, then outside and back in again. The electric carts are pretty quick and fully adjustable to accommodate a lot of body sizes. Although you do provide... More

When my boss first said he wanted a manager's outing at Octane Raceway, I thought "oh, great. Loud, smelly, and what do they know about throwing a party for us?" Well, I was 100% wrong, they DO throw a great corporate event. The racing was a blast and I didn't even care that I came in second to last. There... More

This place is fast and fun! I have never ridden a go- cart, took 3 boys and we all had a great time. They let you go many laps around the course to get your monies worth. I felt safe and had a great time.

We'll I do understand the need for rules on a go kart raceway, I just didn't get why one would need to scoot over for someone to pass...... I thought the whole point was to race. Anywho it's really over priced and the name is a bit misleading. It should be called go kart driving course...... The place was decorated... More

sundeviljp, General Manager at Octane Raceway, responded to this review

Lina - We appreciate your feedback but there is definitely a need to have a blue passing flag. This reduces racing accidents at our venue and improves driver safety. It also makes for a better experience for racers. If a racer is going slower or blocking people behind them then they are causing the rest of the drivers in the... More

Came to octane for a day out with the wife and some friends. We had a great time but I will say the staff needs to be trained better in customer service. They were less that friendly and seemed bother when asked a simple question. If it wasn't for that I would have given the 5 stars. Definitely something different... More
