"Speedy fun"
October 2018
So we purched the tickets online to save time. When we got there we ended up having to go to another building to get our tickets and return. They were real busy and we ended being there about 3 hours. It was alot of fun and we will definitely go back.

Tip: Pick up your tickets before heading to the extreme go carts. It is only a 10 min walk if you don't. We didn't mind the walk so wasn't abig deal for us!!

"Lots of fun if you like "the fast ones""
July 2015
We chose this attraction because my husband loves go-carts! My husband absolutely loved that these were much faster than the typical go cart. The staff was very good about enforcing the rules to ensure that everyone has an enjoyable experience.

There's the 35mph carts and the 40mph carts.... I tried them both and I loved it. The tracks are challenging and super fast... I could do this all day. If you like the use your brakes this is not the race for you to be in....

My fiance and I went for his bday 12/28/2019 and had a blast. We purchased the racing with the qualifier and a second race. This was a really good value and there are coupons on the parkway to get savings so look out for those. The cars go faster than your average go karts for this race so beware. Everything felt safe and we even were given helmets. The only thing I should have paid attention to was the second race the car i got in was not on and it was the slowest car. That was the only downfall and made the second race kind of not enjoyable.

"Not the best and pricey "
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed December 30, 2019
We had over 10 people with us plus other groups. It is much faster if your go cart actually worked and with that being said if it does go faster than others expect to be hit a full speed. People think its bumper cars, dont break and just hit whatever is in the way. It could be fun if you didnt come out with whiplash. Plus you can ride for $6 almost anywhere and here its $25 for 2 tracks. I'm not going back!

"Unsafe"

Reviewed December 24, 2019
Sat for safety class. Sounded good. On track there are people slamming into each other right in front of the alleged safety personnel and spinning each other out with no repercussions. Then once I complained to the manager his response was you can come back tomorrow. Was also never told that we had the last race of the night due to lights not working until after they took our payment. Avoid if you are concerned with the safety of your family.
