Where are we going today?

Vroom Vroom!  Get those engines ready - you're about to start!  American Indoor Karting gives families a fun indoor track to race against each other with a bit of friendly competition!

Have you always pictured yourself winning a Formula 1 championship?  Well, now you can get in your very own cart, and imagine the sounds of the crowd screaming your name.  The smell of the petrol and the sound of the engines all around you.  Your hands go on the wheel, and you watch for the flag...and then....GO! You're off!

The center allow kids aged 8 - 15 to have their own races around the track if they have a membership, otherwise they must be part of a birthday party.

Those aged over 16 are fine with using the track on a single race basis. 

They offer great junior karting birthday packages where you can be the envy of the entire neighbourhood! You and all your friends can go kart on the fastest track on the East Coast, perfect for those birthday kids over 8 years old.  The packages give you a dedicated birthday party coordinator, and two 8 minute races per child, as well as a fun party room for 90 minutes. There are different packages on offer with additions such as pizza and invitations. 

They also have special teen birthday party packages too. 

In addition to parties, they have a super fun AIK Arcade Game Room with XBox games, air hockey, pool tables, and of course driving games!  They have classic arcade games, basketball arcade games and hours of tun where you can get your redemption tickets!

Start your engines....!

    The track is small and boring. They used to have a much better track at their old building. I don't know why they went from a huge track that was adjustable to a tiny crappy track that is too small to do anything with.

    I wish they could extend the track out the back doors for a half outside half inside track or something.

    DO NOT COME HERE!!!! Worst experience I ever had in a go kart place. The staff is rude. They assigned me what they call a Heat 4... Little did I know that Heat 4 was already called for like 5 mins into me buying the ticket. First announcement I heard was Heat 5, so ok maybe they are counting down.... so heat 5 goes by (8mins) then a kids round (8Mins) then heat 6... ok now I notice there is something wrong. GO back to the cashier I get heat 8... Waited 16 more mins and then kid's round 2 in a row, the place is just outrageous.

    Tried to go in at 215 when the lights were on and door was open. We were told it wasn't open till 3. Came back an hour later and was told that they have NOTHING for kids under 8 and no double cars. Poor form.

    Worst experience go-karting EVER! My husband and I went there right before New Year's Eve. DO NOT bring any valuables inside! My husband and I bought a locker to put all of our stuff. The key fell out during or between a race and our locker was emptied out completely during our last race. Over $1,000 worth of stuff was stolen from our locker. The staff wasn't very helpful in helping us look for it. And they don't have any security cameras.

    This place easily gets boring waiting for the heats on a busy night. The mock arcade area has terrible games...Read More

    The girl working the counter was very nice. Everything went downhill after that. Some of the helmets were in disrepair - missing pads. Went with a group of 5 - they grouped us with an additional 4 people. Two of our carts had poor steering. Also - you will be very cramped in the kart if you're over 6 foot tall. There were too many people on the track and it was a mix of beginners and speed demons who took turns intentionally bumping into a member of our group. While the staff cannot control the clientele, I do expect them to make an effort...Read More

While the staff cannot control the clientele, I do expect them to make an effort to keep them in line. The flagger used the blue flagged inappropriately and gratuitously. It seems as though he made a determination as to who was a passer and who was to be passed... and flagged based on this preconceived notion.
