Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

So I love going here have been quite a few times and when the company asked me to organise a night out I was straight out of the blocks in suggesting NKC. So we have a good mix of age and sex of staff and so I was wondering was it a great idea. Well it went down a bomb the best company works night ever was agreed by all. Now it's traditional.
So I have been here quite a few times with work,friends and even stags I have to say it is the place to visit no matter the event and most definitely for all the family.
Great track Balcony for those who just want to come along and watch fast karts most friendly excellent staff.

This track was probably one of the best I have ever been too. I have been here many times and I have never been disappointed with the staff, facilities or the equipment.

Recently brought my team to this amazing venue. Its full of character (the old Ford motor factory) and the service is simply brilliant. I had a mixed group of people so was a little apprehensive to begin with, however the manager - Jerry could not have been more helpful in taking care of the booking and the various skill levels from start to finish and all the team had a fantastic evening. The serious petrol heads on the team who had done a lot of karting said it was the best track they had ever been on with the track running over several levels. The karts and the safety equipment are top class - very new and well maintained. Thank you Jerry - and your attentive team - I'll certainly be back with other teams - and the kids are mad to go too!

Well set up with friendly staff and good parking. Great track with fast Karts.....only issue was that both my kids beat me! Printouts of lap times were great.

Well we wanted to go go karting..... so found this place had to call to book as Internet doesn’t allow but i prefer to speak to people anyway as you get a feel for who your dealing with. Lovely guy on phone not sure of name but normally doesn’t work there as a rule. Quite glad we got him as the other staff when we arrived didn’t seem overall bothered but thankfully the guy we had was fabulous if we had of had the others i don’t think we would be so kind on review.... they wouldn’t even have eye contact with us let alone speak. The guy we had was a younger richard Rawlings look alike and was fun, friendly and very helpful. So hence the epic review.
Great track for fun, everyone had a good time, and would definitely book again and be back as fun for all the family.
Thank you to the guy we had as you made our experience brilliant. See you soon

Is a bit of a drive but worth the 6 hours round trip

Brought my son here recently and we really enjoyed the experience. The staff were friendly ,helpful and professional. The track itself was shortened due to my son’s age ,as the full track would have been too demanding for younger drivers. Would highly recommend 👌🏻

It's very well laid out and clean and staff were very friendly, we were a small bit early so went to the waiting room that over looks the track that has comfortable seats and pool table.

We went though the safety talk and advice before getting going. The staff helped with the safety gear and could lock out gear away.

We went for the half hour option (which flew) due to the size of our group. The track is great all the lads enjoyed the Karting. The track has multiple levels and sharp corners. The Karts are fast and handle very well. The walls were soft when you hit the barrier and staff were very quick off the mark to get you turned around.

Over all we had a great time with the intention now of visiting again soon, would highly recommend.

Brought my 14 year old son and his two mates Saturday May-05. We had a great time and the kids were buzzing afterwards. I'd suggest go for the 30 min session - we thought 20 mins went too fast. (shows how much we enjoyed it I suppose)

Highly recommended. Staff courteous, helpful and knowledgeable.

Could've been fun if they had some decent staff, very arrogant, surprised the place still in business with that quality of staff.
