    Solid place with a good system to keep waiting down to a minimum. As the current race is on it's final laps the next group is called up and prepped. Drivers are seated in their karts and strapped in. As soon as the current race is over the next can start. Some of the karts are a little beat up and could use some work but all in all a great experience. They measure rankings by your best lap time. There is no indication of max speed or average speed.

    We came with a group of 9 or so and it was fun. However, the staff doesn't really do too great of a job flagging down people who ram into your car on multiple occasions purposely. They did a great job flagging down hazards though. It was very over priced for what it was. $25 for a race that lasts about 7-10 minutes.

    The Go Karts are fast and well maintained. The attendants make sure no one is waiting long and quickly put you in the track. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience here and plan on going again.
