We knew it would be fun, but it's admittedly pricey. We searched all over for discounts (Groupon--no current promotions, other sites--spam) and finally decided to just bite the bullet and go. Lo and behold! They have a weekday special (M-Th) of 3 races for $39. We went on a Monday morning and had the place almost to ourselves until about... More

Had to wait over two hours to race because they catered to a birthday party and bachelor party. Watched each race three times before we ever got an opportunity. We were told we go in an hour and a half and we are still waiting after the two hours.

My husband and I went before dinner one night and had a great time. The staff was super nice and for $50 each we had 2 races and a shirt. We showed up about 6pm on a Friday and stayed about an hour and 1/2. I was told they get pretty busy on the weekends but we beat the crowd.... More

I went with my 30 year old son for 3 races at K1. We had a blast. I felt safe the whole time and got the competitive juices flowing. The crewe does a good job of explaining how to handle the cars and they keep a tight control on each racer so slower drivers can enjoy it without holding up... More

In addition to the fact that this karts are ELECTRIC (slower than molasses) This is the most unprepared staff I have ever had to deal with. From the phone call to make a reservation, to the rep on the register to the people in charge of the track NO ONE knows what they are supposed to do. They told me... More

There are moments of fun but the workers kept slowing us down. Every few seconds, they would slow down all the cars. Everything is electric and computerized, so it's very controlled. Not very fun when you are getting slowed down or stopped all the time. It's called "go-cart" not "stop cart"

This place is a little out of the city, but its worth the trip. Good fun, well organised and not badly priced. We did the GrandPrix style racing, which was three races with about 14-16 laps each, and then a trophy presentation at the end. Plenty of karts for large groups, safe, and a room for parties and events if... More

A group of my colleagues and I are now frequent visitors to K1 because of how much of a blast it is! We work for a major automaker and are all enthusiasts of anything with wheels on it. We can't get enough of K1. Best part is getting to race with BEN the #1 racer in K1 and giving the... More
