Gun It Out of those Curves

With plenty of curves on this humungous track, anyone can be an Indy driver gunning it out of the curves. Big bang for the money! Very safe facility and nice cars to drive.

Wasaga 500 is a seasonal business that offers go-karting, batting cage and mini putt. The go-kart track is very fun. There are cars available where parents can drive with smaller children.

Sure, a couple of ten-year-olds passed me...several times...but I still had a blast! My husband I split the 12 laps for $50 cash deal. I thought that was reasonable. Didn't try the batting cage or mini-golf on THIS trip; maybe next time. A good, clean, fun time!

The track is dangerous, my child had a wipe out and the cheap helmet he was provided with went flying off. The people working there are rude and disgusting and will swear at you as well as your children if they assume that you did something wrong with the car, even if it was an accident. I will never go... More

Sounds like your go kart fantasy camp didn't work out very well. I spend an awful lot of my time here I do recall something about a helmet coming off. Did you speak with one of our managers concerning these issues? Most importantly everybody is ok with no injuries. It's unfortunate you did not have a good time but the... More

This is a favourite activity for my son. It is very expensive, but I don't believe any more than other go carts and the corse is long and well-maintained. They take safety seriously, so adhere to the rules!

Even though we "summer" in Wasaga Beach, this was our first visit in the 15 years we have been up there. We had a blast go karting and playing mini-golf.

Fantastic exhilarating experience and just minutes away from the Beach. The price is on the steep side but in line with other offering in the area. We got the 7 laps and it was good enough, feeling very vibrated afterwards. Will do it again, at least a couple times this year!
