Overview

Slideways - Go Karting Gold Coast is conveniently located just 10 minutes from Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach, right beside the M1 Motorway at Nerang, providing easy access from all areas of the Gold Coast, Brisbane and Logan regions. Our European style indoor hire kart track features a huge 55m cross over bridge, a cambered berm, tunnel, esses and sweepers. Our unique track surface is designed by Slideways - Go Karting Australia and is like no other in the southern hemisphere, allowing the karts to drift and get Slideways! It also means it takes some skill to achieve a good lap time using smooth steering, throttle and brake control, designed for heart pumping racing action. We only use the best quality go karts at Slideways - Go Karting Gold Coast! We have 20 European state of the art Sodi hire go karts, powered by de-governed 9hp four stroke Honda kart engines! (The majority of hire kart centres use 5.5 or 6.5hp engines) When you team this with the 70kg racing chassis, you end up with very potent karts, unlike any other hire karts you have experienced. We think you shouldn't have to miss out just because you're a kid! Our 2 Seater Karts and Sodi Kids Karts are fitted with the state of the art safety and kart control equipment, for every parent's peace of mind. Drivers just need to be over 120cm, to drive the karts (usually 7 years and above). We also have 2 seater karts available, which can be driven by an adult, and suitable for passengers between 90-130cm tall. Slideways - Go Karting Gold Coast is fun for the whole family! All of our go karts are fitted with individual timing transponders, measuring to an incredible one thousandth of a second, meaning you can track your lap times and more importantly...whether you beat your friends or not. Our state-of-the-art timing system allows you to view all your lap times on the big screen TV! Whether you want to come down on your own and set a hot lap, race a few friends, organise a bucks party, birthday party or corporate event Slideways - Go Karting Gold Coast have got you covered. Our go kart track indoors and not affected by the weather - we are open rain hail or shine 7 days a week from 10am-10pm! This is another 5 star quality go kart hire track by Slideways - Go Karting Australia. Also check out Slideways - Go Karting World and Slideways - Go Karting Brisbane!

Hi there Alberto, thanks for taking the time to drop us a review, but we feel it would be prudent to set the record straight on a few things. The price is $66 per person for two 10 minute sessions, not one. The Slideways membership...More

The price for the go karting was quite expensive especially because the track is a 30s track and you only do 14 laps. So you're on the track for 7 minutes but pay around $5.50/minute....not great value What I liked about this was the karts...More
