Overall always a good experience racing at K1. Sometimes the wait is a bit long but at least you have people to race against... Only downside is sometimes you have really bad, borderline dangerous drivers. Karts are also occasionally throttle controlled from the operator. Which...More

Took my son here for 11th birthday. The tracks were fun. The kids had a great time. Worth the price for racing.

My complaint about other indoor tracks is the noise and fumes give me a headache. K1 has electric cars. No fumes, less noise and lots of fun

We only participated in one race. It was fun. The other participants join in the fun by racing with you or trying to get ahead of you. Everyone does it in the spirit of fun. The surprising thing was how tired I was at the...More

I take my grandchildren here often. They love the fast speeds and the competition. It is best to go during the week with much smaller crowds and wait times.

I came here with my two kids and of course, they weren't allowed to race. Overall, the experience was pretty fun, but a little pricey for what it was. Racing around the track the first time was novel, but subsequent races were pretty boring. If...More

Attended K1 Speed for a team building event. It's surprising that the people you think will be aggressive drivers are not. Good place to drive a bit recklessly and not worry about getting ticketed! But driving fast takes skill and good timing! We booked the...More

How much is it for a person and for that cost, how many time a person can go on racing?

You may buy a block ticket. Our ticket was a gift, hence I do not know exactly how much does it cost. I am guessing it is 20 usd per race. You can race as many times as you like, but after each race you have to get off the... More
