I stopped by on Saturday morning to check out the facility. It looked great, so I signed up. The karts are new and quick, and the staff are fantastic (very attentive). Much Better than the K1 faclities I have visited.

Went with 2 friends and my daughter for some girls time. We had a blast driving the cars! Was amazed at how fast the track is. For some adult fun would recommend it to all ages.
