Slideways - Go Karting Gold Coast is conveniently located just 10 minutes...

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!

Great place. I loved every moment of it. The track is very good and original. Although some parts of the track are electronically controlled to make you slow down (to preserve their go karts from average drivers haha), it was still fun nonetheless. Sometimes it also felt that they could electronically control the angle and speed of your slide especially... More

Cheers for dropping by! We do have controls on the major down ramp from the top floor to the cave in the name of safety, and the karts can be remotely slowed/shut off if there is a yellow/red light on the track, but we won't randomly interfere with the karts unless there is a safety issue on track.

This track is so much fun! Took my daughter who is 9 and she had a ball as well. Love that it's drifting and something different than your general karting experience. Will def be back with friends.

So firstly these guys have moved to a larger facility down the road which is just amazing!! 3 levels of sideways action. My partner and I took our 9yr old son so we had to go on the family group so he could be in a kids cart (under 145cm) We struck it lucky, only 5 of us in the... More

No place to sit while waiting. No coffee or sandwiches. First timers on same track as middle aged men who were aggressive and testosterone filled with no regard for novices. Took ages between rides. Walked out after one race despite getting gold pass entitling us to another 3 races. Track is great though, being almost half a kilometre but not... More

Very expensive. had to wait 3 hours for our turn. The day we went it was raining and the roof leeked all over the track. While waiting for your race you have to sit in an enclosed area with all the cart engine exaust and very poor ventilation. Every one of us was coughing as were all those around us.... More

Hi there, we are very sorry to see your feedback. Obviously weekend days are very busy at the best of times, but when it is combined with poor weather, wait times can grow. When combined with a storm that made the roof leak, this can greatly compound issues. We are only relatively new in this facility, and when faced with... More

Not the same as go karts with the thrill of speed and driving hard. This is very different. Temperamental on brake-accelerator. Karts slide as its on a smooth rubber surface. Three levels makes it interesting but also when there is more riders most of the time there are slow down speeds. You have to allow others to overtake, so not... More

Thanks for dropping by - if you are looking a flat our go kart ride on a high grip track surface, check out our outdoor track - Slideways Go Karting World. It's only 15min up the M1 from our indoor Nerang track at Pimpama, and offers a more traditional kart racing feel. More
