So I heard about this outdoor go karting place thru friends that live close to the track. While I was in Tampa originally for Busch Gardens Howl O Scream I took advantage that we were close by we called the go kart track for confirmation of hours. They quickly called back even though they were gonna close at 5pm on... More

The folks here do a great job at keeping things moving along and well organized. They explain how things work if you're new, and help out in many ways. They also provide you with a clean washed hygiene helmet sock for your use. Some say the price is a bit on the high side, I'd say not for what you... More

Hi Jim, Thank you for the kind words! We always appreciate customer feedback, both good and bad to help keep us on track... Pun intended!

Anderson Race Park is the go-cart experience you've been looking for! These carts are the real deal with speeds up to 40 mph on a great closed circuit. My friends and I never fail to have a great time. If you are looking for something really fun to do -- this is the palce!

Thank you for the review Larry! We certainly appreciate it. Remember we have Performance Karts available too which are considerably faster and will do about 70 mph on the front straight! There's a minimum lap time to qualify to demonstrate proficiency and to promote safety but we can certainly help coach you in that direction if needed. We hope to... More

I was merely a spectator while my husband raced but you can tell this is a fun little track! We were there on a weeknight. It was a small group, only nine drivers, so they got extra track time. There was practice, qualifying and two races. The track is one mile and has 13 (!!) turns. Some of the turns... More

The 1/2 mile track allowed straight aways for speed and enough turns for skill. The techs were in uniform, efficient and knowledgeable. We'll be back.

Fun times to be had. Outdoor cart rentals and cart speed tops out at about 45 mph. You need to be 16 and have a valid drivers license. If you check their website they do occasionally run specials.

We had a great time at Andersen Karting. Karts are very good for rental karts, but they definitely do NOT go 50 mph - that is the speed of the faster competition karts which cost much more to drive. The track is very challenging and each lap is timed.
