Cowboy doesn't drive
Dec. 2019 • Family
Whoa! The track was so much fun. We had a 5th grader, and three 7th graders. The boys had a blast. I went and asked if I should buy the groupon. They gave me a better price than the groupon on site. 4 rides for 44 dollars. We loved the staff and they were very attentive to the young men. They asked us if we wanted the boys to go full speed, 3/4 speed, or half speed. We said FULL speed of course. The star of the show is the house dog named Cowboy. He doesn't drive but he is super nice and the boys liked him. Parking was odd but fee. The crowd was minimal. The setting was amazing with the strip as the backdrop!

Racing Fun in Vegas!
Jul. 2019
This was our first time visiting the Gene Woods Racing Experience. My pre-teen loves go karts and so this was a must visit for us. We found some deals on Groupon and so we visited twice while on our trip to Vegas. My son and husband had a great time on the track. They show you a safety video before you hop onto a go kart. They also have a very helpful track staff person who prep you before the racing starts. They are very friendly and we will be back again.

Not quite what I was expecting but all in all glad that I went

So I just wrote my review and at the end found that I was twice as long as allowed here on Trip Adviser, so...... I'll do it again in bullet point, lol!
Pros- Challenging, well laid out track with banked corners
Con- No straightaways and concrete surface, NO timing or scoring, very slippery in the heat and wind
Pro- Karts steering wheel and steering good
Con- Steering tie rods rubbed on my legs
Pro- Karts better than they look
Con- I don't think they reach 45 MPH
Pro- Good displays at the facility and good viewing for spectators
Con- Bathroom!! General layout of facility confusing, no one to really ask where to go.
Pro- Fairly good helmet selection
Con- No sizes marked for helmets, visors are garbage and mostly falling off, balaclavas not one time use, yuk!
Pro- Staff friendly when you can find them, take it seriously
Con- I had read that they don't really let people race out here, from a lot of reviews, but for myself, even though I lapped everyone 2-3 times left us alone.
Pro- easy access to the track by car or cab, bus and walking.
Only 2 miles down the Strip from the Mandalay Bay
Con- Come on Gene Woods Racing, not everyone arrives by vehicle, have some proper signage on Sunset for people walking so that they don't walk an extra 15 minutes in 100 degrees, and can clearly see where to enter the facility!!!!
Pro- Go check it out if your with your family, relatives, or kids
Con- Don't go if your a serious Karter, well, maybe go once, just to check it out for yourself!

It could have been more fun...
Apr. 2019 • Couples
I went with my wife and we watched the safety video and the guys there were very friendly and helpful and we got on-track with about six other people.

Unfortunately, after about 7 or 8 fun laps we were all pulled off the track and the guy mumbled something about dangerous driving or something. I was very surprised by this as my wife drove very carefully as it was her first time in a go-kart and I zipped around and cleanly overtook a couple of the other karts. I saw one or two other drivers spin but nobody hit anybody as far as I could tell, because we were all quite spread out after only a short time.

I follow F1 racing very closely and understand the need for safety and the importance of passing cleanly etc. but I still don't understand why we were all told to stop.

I suppose if you all pootle around at a sedate speed without overtaking you'd probably be allowed your full allocation of laps. That would hardly be a "racing experience" as suggested by their title.

Overall - it WAS fun while it lasted.

Great for a group!
Apr. 2019 • Friends
Went there with 10 guys and were all able to get on the track at the same time pretty quickly. We raced for 2 X 8 minute races and it was very fun for the whole group. The only downside for us was that when we left, we smelled of petrol unfortunately.... so plan for a shower afterwards!! But other than that it was a lot of.

These Go Karts Move!
Apr. 2019 • Friends
This was so much fun! These little suckers haul ass! Eight of us raced and the people that run this place allow some bumping, especially if you’re trying to pass. The track is long and they give you multiple laps per race. Be prepared though to have your hands ache, as the steering wheels are stiff and require a lot of torque to steer. We were in 95 degree heat and were just drained after the race. Most of us found putting the face shield down on the helmet was stultifying, so we kept it up and got a cool breeze on our faces. It wasn’t overly expensive as we had a group on but regardless of the price, go and have loads of fun.

Terrible service if you're not a man
Mar. 2019 • Friends
I came here with a small group of friends. Not one person spoke to me in the entire half hour we waited around the pit and register. It took one of my friends finding someone and asking if we could get some help at the register for anyone to even come talk to us. Meanwhile the group of guys before and after us had no issues. Hmmm. When somebody did finally come to answer questions, they were condescending and patronizing. 0/10 do not recommend.

So much fun,
Dec. 2018 • Couples
Needed to do something different this time in Vegas. So I said to my girl and my two friends lets go carting, we had a few to choose from. I decided this was the one for us, we had the best time. The staff was excellent, very nice helped everyone with questions and requests. It took about two laps to heat up the tires for good grip, so be patient. If your timid or not to aggressive try to go with you own people or a like crowd. I watched a guy lap the field in the race before me, it was fun to watch in our second race he got on the track with me we raced fast and clean. So if you want an adrenaline rush this is it. Buckle up and have fun.

My family had a wonderful experience. I was comfortable allowing my son to drive because it is obvious they take safety seriously. Staff is friendly and helpful.
