Awesome fun

Once you try drifting, you'll never want to drive a regular kart again. Great fun, super value ($40 for about 30 mins), and the guys are friendly. Two thumbs way up!

Expensive for time you are actually on the track. Course is very short. Can never overtook without hitting someone into the barriers and then it all stops. No timers. No countdown of laps in the races. Very basic. Not worth it. Better off at luge or white water rafting. Won't be going back for sure

This was so much fun for the inner "hoon" in you: the guide was really funny, very warm and welcoming and our family had great fun sliding around the track. If you drive well, the guide speeds up the kart which makes it even more fun. Totally recommend it to anyone visiting Rotorua

My Classmates wanted to do something crazy after school, so we went to check out what is Drift Kartz are like. The instructors in the track are very strict & helpful. They do not want any accidents to happen so they Guide and monitor your group very carefully. We got few rounds for free to get hold to the cars... More

We booked via Bookme and had a great time - teenage sons enjoyed their time thoroughly - would certainly make the effort to visit again. Staff member was great - everyone had a great time.

Awesome experience with the wife and kids, first time racing, staff were really good, took a few laps to get used to the drifting but once we got the hang of it racing was great. Would recommend this to anyone

We hadn't been for a while but soon remembered the fun in the drifting, all up we were there for about hour, was a great way to start the afternoon in Rotorua. The instructor/ track supervisor was very friendly and helpful and experience. The track was good to ride/have fun on and tricky in places but that's what it is... More

Worst karts in NZ!!!!! If you are in Rotorua and are thinking about drift kartz, save your money. Slowest karts I've ever been on and only slightest contact with another kart and you get pulled into the pits. This is one place I we will never visit again, normally I wouldn't review places but I feel that people need to... More
