Where are we going today?

Can't decide between bowling and karting? XBK Zone is the place you should be then, because it has both! The name stands for Xtreme Bowling and Karting, and it certainly hits the nail on the head!

XBK Zone is a great for those active kids to get out all that extra energy that we know they have! It has South Florida's LONGEST and FASTEST indoor Go Kart Track that gives kids a real racing experience! They have European gas powered karts that can take them around a 1/2 mile asphalt track. They can even reach speeds of up to 45mph! That's crazy!

There are a number of racing experiences to choose from. Arrive & Drive you can just turn up without an appointment, although you do need a valid drivers license upon arrival. If you don't have a drivers license, then you can still participate in the Rookie Race Sessions.

They do make sure that the Pro and Cadet karts aren't on the track at the same time due to the differences in speeds, so kids you might be in a different heat than your parents.

Then at the end of the session you get your race results to compare your skills!

XBK Zone also offers Super Kart Racing where you can get to speeds of 65mph! These are for members who are part of an upgrade evaluations. Then for those over 16 you can try out the lap races and race against each other to the finish line! 

Then...from wheels to pins, make your way to the bowling alley because you know that your adrenaline will be pumping! It's a great way for families to enjoy some time together and once again, compete against each other! (All friendly competition we hope!)

Keep XBK Zone in mind for your next birthday too if you feel it's a place to celebrate your next bg day with your friends - and it's not just for the little ones! Happy adrenaline filled birthday!

    Michael Au: Your underage brother failed because he made a major mistake. It's called "Riding the Brakes". It damages the karts. If you owned any type of business, you wouldn't allow customers to damage your equipment. Especially with the special circumstance of someone who doesn't have a drivers license, NO/LITTLE experience driving... you expect them to let the kid go out and fly around going 45 mph without knowledge of how to properly brake (after being instructed)? I make GREAT times around the track, and yeah, I've spun out a couple times....Read More

    To set up the full experience: my friends and I were taking our good brother from California for one more outing before he leaves. He was stoked - he was looking over the course map before we went and laying down strategy. He doesn't have a state issued license or ID, so our only option was to get him a racing license via the "race evaluation." That one was on us for not checking. Essentially the race evaluation has you go out onto the track to see if you're a safe driver. The cost is $26 for the evaluation. That does not include a race (another...Read More

I make GREAT times around the track, and yeah, I've spun out a couple times. But I don't damage the brakes through my runs.

Muneek: If you think Boomers or ANY place in Florida has better karts (besides buying your own "shifter karts" which go 100+ mph and getting on an outdoor track like the Speedway)... then you might be confusing the "Karting" at Xtreme with the Arcade racing.

Karting is EXHILARATING. I am addicted to pushing my lap times down and down - even if sometimes that means paying a second race to get a 0.02 second difference. It's not for everyone. But your review makes it look like Xtreme is the problem when really you just have zero understanding or respect for karting.

Disclaimer: I don't work there. I'm just a go kart addict!

He was stoked - he was looking over the course map before we went and laying down strategy. He doesn't have a state issued license or ID, so our only option was to get him a racing license via the "race evaluation." That one was on us for not checking. Essentially the race evaluation has you go out onto the track to see if you're a safe driver. The cost is $26 for the evaluation. That does not include a race (another $20). That's fine, on us. So my friend does fine - he doesn't run into walls, doesn't run into other people, and finishes with a respectable time. He fails the evaluation for using the breaks too often. In a vague explanation given by the pit crew, they said he "needed more practice and to try again was $14." The crew member admitted he wasn't sure why my friend failed and that he wasn't even present during the race. We asked what standard he was judged by because he was clearly safe and did not pose danger to others or himself. He was apparently too careful in his use of the breaks. There were 4 others being evaluated at the same time. Out of 5 people, one person passed - a guy who spun out twice after ramming into the walls. We left feeling like we were cheated. They are simply taking your money if you do the racing evaluation. They have no shame in it. There are no standards. It completely derailed our time out and brought everyone's morale down. We all felt like we didn't want to race anymore after that.
