This was one of two tracks were traveled to here in Connecticut. My teenage son is a go-kart phanatic and races in leagues. During the summer we travel and try new places to race. Upon arriving here we were told we'd have to come back 2.5 ours later due to a party booked there. That would have been nice to know before arriving and we would have planned accordingly. Stuff like that should be posted on their website. We left ate lunch and returned ... of course the party ran late. Eventually we were able to start. There were so many karts on the track at once, it was crazy, Karts ran fast t hey were cool, but hard to enjoy with so many. During my son's 2nd race, another racer (female adult) approached my son, complaining to him that he passed her (the point - even though she was told to move over and didn't). Staff was not even paying attention to this interaction. I had to go in as she was not aware that she was approaching a minor. All in all the karts and track were fun, but very crazy that they had so many people there and not enough staff and too many on at once

What a blast! Our second visit and it is still thrilling and exhilarating fun. Went with son and fiancé who also loved it. Very fast well maintained cars with room to drive, most of the time. 15 drivers maybe a couple too many but still a great time. Discount for Fathers Day was a nice touch!

24 bucks may sound like a lot for 8 minutes of track time (10 minutes if you come on a Tuesday) but once you've tried it (or watched your son) you'll feel like it's a bargain. This isn't run of the mill carting. This is a challenging indoor track with plenty of curves that even professionals take 39 seconds to complete. If you're any good you'll break 50 seconds or spin out trying. Fortunately the professional pit crew are there to get you back on track and make sure everything runs safely. There are separate carts for adults and children (which run slower) and the only downside is that fathers or mothers can't race their sons or daughters. In any case it's a lot of fun and the quickest way to put a long-lasting smile on your siblings face.

Wen there with a group of 10 people, and before we went I called ahead a week before to call and get a time set for us. Which if you know your going with a big group, I strongly suggest you doing. We asked for 3 races which is plenty as each race goes for almost 10 minutes, and you can get tired quick, with the steering your bumping you have, plus the helmet makes you hot and sweaty. What is also great is that they keep your time, so you can see how you do, they make sure your safe, and they allow enough time between your races for you to rest. Its a great time and would do it again.
