Monday morning local schools started back, my two had the place to themselves. Great staff, great place, was fun watching them. Pricey but my god I had so much fun watching them as they did driving. Lots of tail out action. Brilliant.

Great experience here, the price and value was good but... the suits, even bigger ones were quite small. The karts seemed small and not as comfy as others. The track is fun and staff were friendly though!More

Hi Alex, Thanks for the review, and we're sorry to hear that everything was a bit undersized. Most of the time we're ok for sizing but we have found the overalls can be a bit tight on the shoulders sometimes. The Adult karts are also...More

We took our son karting for the first time here whilst on holiday. Had a great 20 minutes of exhilarating fun. At £81 for the 3 of us it was an expensive treat perhaps, but well worth the experience.
