The premise behind the creation of K1 Speed was to offer enthusiasts and amateurs alike an authentic and genuine racing experience in a safe, comfortable, accessible and perhaps most importantly, unique environment. Utilizing advanced European electric karts and indoor asphalt tracks, K1 Speed quickly developed a reputation as being fun and exciting, and our growth has been continuous ever since.

Front desk not helpful and did not set the right expectations for a new customer. Took 1.5 before first race. Josh the manager was not apologetic. Poor services.

My son and I visited yesterday and had a great time. We bought the 3 race package and it took us a couple of hours to use. Fun activity for both of us. The price of the package is in line with similar activities.

K1 Speed is a very fun family Activity if you have kids who like go-karts. There are height restrictions for the faster carts so be warned that not all of your party may be able to race in the fastest carts. Our oldest chose to...More

Fun for sure, great time for teenagers, especially around 14 or 15 who have the itch to drive. Big place, two different tracks. They have nice safety gear, and explain everything, indoors, also have nice lounge area.

This place is awesome! I was slightly scared at first, since the cars go super fast, but once I got used to the speed, I had a blast! The only problem was the long waits to race. The place has a little restaurant that looks...More
