"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.

"Great Kart Experience "
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed October 08, 2019 NEW
We went to this place because it was very close to where we were staying, but ended up being the best go kart experience we had the whole trip ... and we tried many while we were there! The carts are more European style with the side mounted motors and run faster than any others in the area. I actually enjoyed the 30mph karts a bit more than the faster 40mph ones. We had one incident where my son was stuck longer than he should have been during a race. After my wife asked, Joanna gave him another ride to make up for it and was wonderful about the whole situation - she even allowed me to race again with him. Aside from the one incident, the staff was great and ran things smoothly, especially during busy hours on the weekend when we went initially. Joanna was exceptional-thank you so much! Go early (before noon) during the week for a great BOGO deal on the single carts. Not one of a kind, but definitely the best racing experience in Pigeon Forge. You won’t be disappointed!

It was a cluster, no one new where to go, races were only 6 carts per heat. Helmets really stink, carts worked sometimes. The lady behind the counter was helpful but typing with 3” nails was an issue. The guy outside was not helpful.

Xtreme Racing was definitely a great, fun and professional racing experience. The military discount was an excellent benefit. Track attendants James and Jacob were present, made sure we had all our equipment and made it safe for us to ride the track.From a scale of 1- 10 we rate it a 10. We recommend others to highly visit this establishment.
