Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Speeding through the finish gives you the taste, ~just one more win~. The warm, crisp Darwin breeze pushing against your face as you turn onto each straight, the mixed smells of rubber and nature colliding, the sense of clarity you feel when you save that wrong move. It just shows you go karting is not just a sport... it's an art.

Overall it was such a fun activity to do with me mates, the staff were hella friendly. Would recommend coming here with mates or family

Tain Apologies for not seeing you review before this. I feel you have the passion for driving like I do, I have always said driving if you do it for more than getting from A to B, can be art, its like a golf swing, a few people make it look so beautiful it is ART but for many of us the challenge to get a perfect lap is what brings us back. Thanks for the great review

We've been a few times with the team from work and it's so much fun! Everything is explained to you before you start and you are provided with clean safety gear. It's great comparing lap times with your fellow racers, but you can take your time if you want since it's a big track and others can pass you easily if you don't want to go flat out. Highly recommended!

tuanN77 thank you for the return business, and taking the time to write a review, it is good information that you noted regarding big track with plenty of room for passing after all some people don't want to explore the limits of the kart just want to experience a race track at their own pace Best regards

decided to go go-karting for sons birthday, but found that the Driver Safety was not that important to the people running the place. Before I even got out of the pits, the kart died, so I stuck my hand up (which we were told to do in the safety talk) and roll the kart off the track. I was made to wait in the kart for nearly 4minutes, with no one coming over to help, so I got out of the kart and started walking back, and that is when they came racing over. They told me to get in and they would start the kart, but seriously, already missed half the time period.
They weren't too serious, giving the excuse that the staff were busy. So that means too busy to make sure the drivers stay safe???

Jason Thank you for the review, and noted that I responded to your review on Google a few months back but missed your review on trip advisor As previously discussed (google) and during our extended discussion on the day I accept that it was not good that you sat on the edge of the track for some time and it is quite understandable that you were pissed and wanted that to be known. After we talked about the incident it was apparent at the time that the main reason you were a bit angry is that you missed out on spending the session on the track with your son. We did our best to make it up to you and at the time we offered you repeatedly to jump into another kart and join in, I restarted the lap timer so you would get a full session, but you did not want to do that. In the end we gave your son an extra 15minute session which he enjoyed. It must be noted that everybody in your group said they really enjoyed it. As you can see from other reviews we are always looking to give everyone a great experience. it is the message I convey to our staff contunually but like all things involving people and no matter how much we wished it didn't happen humans make mistakes and in your case our staff did not see you stuck on the side of the track, but to be fair your reference to "Safety Not A Concern" is far from reality, everything we do here is to give our customers and staff safe and enjoyable experience, we spend many hours checking and servicing and cleaning the karts cleaning the track, repairing track safety barriers, always discussing amongst all staff any issues that arise. Everybody here is committed to customer service. To your incident where you were sitting on the outside of corner #1 as your kart stalled driving out onto the track it is a relatively safe place to be as very rarely do karts run off the track at that point and as you say you had been instructed to stay in your kart if you stop on the circuit as the karts are designed to offer good protection from impact with other karts, you did the right thing by raising your arm to signal to other drivers that you have stopped on the track. Our staff are continually scanning the track for incidents but through habit generally keep an eye on the sections of the track that have a higher potential for injury. Karts stalling on departure is not uncommon especially first session of the day and we have since your incident had additional discussion to watch all karts as they drive out to in case they stall. Over the 6 years that this business has been operating there has unfortunately one injury, which after investigation was found to be due to an improper crash barrier, to rigid, which once recognized was immediately removed. Jason please be assured that we as a team are very concerned with Safety and are constantly talking about it and evaluating and acting on any suggestions. We appreciate you raising the issue and want you to know that in no way are we dismissing it. Regards Wayne Bell Owner / manager

This is incredibly good fun. The track is long and challenging so makes for excellent racing. The staff are super relaxed and just want to make sure you have the best time possible. I highly recommend this.
