About
Slideways - Go Karting Gold Coast is conveniently located just 10 minutes from Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach, right beside the M1 Motorway at Nerang, providing easy access from all areas of the Gold Coast, Brisbane and Logan regions. Our European style indoor hire kart track features a huge 55m cross over bridge, a cambered berm, tunnel, esses and sweepers. Our unique track surface is designed by Slideways - Go Karting Australia and is like no other in the southern hemisphere, allowing the karts to drift and get Slideways! It also means it takes some skill to achieve a good lap time using smooth steering, throttle and brake control, designed for heart pumping racing action. We only use the best quality go karts at Slideways - Go Karting Gold Coast! We have 20 European state of the art Sodi hire go karts, powered by de-governed 9hp four stroke Honda kart engines! (The majority of hire kart centres use 5.5 or 6.5hp engines) When you team this with the 70kg racing chassis, you end up with very potent karts, unlike any other hire karts you have experienced. We think you shouldn't have to miss out just because you're a kid! Our 2 Seater Karts and Sodi Kids Karts are fitted with the state of the art safety and kart control equipment, for every parent's peace of mind. Drivers just need to be over 120cm, to drive the karts (usually 7 years and above). We also have 2 seater karts available, which can be driven by an adult, and suitable for passengers between 90-130cm tall. Slideways - Go Karting Gold Coast is fun for the whole family! All of our go karts are fitted with individual timing transponders, measuring to an incredible one thousandth of a second, meaning you can track your lap times and more importantly...whether you beat your friends or not. Our state-of-the-art timing system allows you to view all your lap times on the big screen TV! Whether you want to come down on your own and set a hot lap, race a few friends, organise a bucks party, birthday party or corporate event Slideways - Go Karting Gold Coast have got you covered. Our go kart track indoors and not affected by the weather - we are open rain hail or shine 7 days a week from 10am-10pm! This is another 5 star quality go kart hire track by Slideways - Go Karting Australia. Also check out Slideways - Go Karting World and Slideways - Go Karting Brisbane!

66 per person 10 minutes? Plus a fake license 7.50$ not good enough it takes more time and preparation to get in the kart than driving and when you realise is finished!!!! Nah

Hi there Alberto, thanks for taking the time to drop us a review, but we feel it would be prudent to set the record straight on a few things. The price is $66 per person for two 10 minute sessions, not one. The Slideways membership entitles you to a free race on the week of your birthday, a fairly generous offer that many of our customers take advantage of. As for the time taken to prepare you for racing, our number one priority is safety. The safety briefing, checking your helmet and safety equipment, as well as your seating position in the kart are all done for the benefit of your safety. Finally, we have the cheapest go karting in South East Queensland. If you feel that our rates are excessive, feel free shop around. Go Karting is a relatively expensive activity for a variety of reasons, but we strive to keep our prices as competitive as possible. Cheers!

Pricey but pretty fun
Apr. 2017 • Friends
The price for the go karting was quite expensive especially because the track is a 30s track and you only do 14 laps. So you're on the track for 7 minutes but pay around $5.50/minute....not great value

What I liked about this was the karts are electric which meant they were very fast. Because you're not sitting on a petrol engine you're not left hot and sweaty at the end of the ride. Track had a good layout with one challenging turn.

Overall good fun.

Hi there Mandy, it seems that you might be thinking of a different race track - Slideways Go Karting Gold Coast has petrol powered go karts, 10 minute sessions, and the cheapest prices in South East Queensland, as well as the only three storey track layout in the southern hemisphere.

Entertaining is an understatement
Mar. 2017 • Family
Slideways Gold Coast has recently relocated to a better location and manufactured a brand new track which is extremely fun!

The only downside is that everytime someone else crashes, you stop and at times you will only do a few laps which are not fun but annoying.

Hi there, thanks for dropping by! Obviously during busy times like the school holidays, with more people on track there can be more stoppages. We offer a range of discount vouchers for quieter, non-school holiday periods. Don't forget - we also have two further local race tracks. Slideways Go Karting World at Pimpama (2min from Dreamworld) is our massive outdoor track, while Slideways Go Karting Brisbane at Eagle Farm is currently undergoing big renovations to bring it to the standard of our three storey track in Nerang. Cheers!

Super Fun
Mar. 2017 • Family
Took Mr 8 for his Birthday today along with Mr 5 and from the outset the staff were helpful, friendly and understanding of a newbie.
Facilities were clean. Track was challenging and fun and the staff were there in a second when we did spin out from an overzealous dad or Mr 8.
I've raced hire Karts before at Barbagallo Raceway in Perth at close to 100 km/h, but the whole idea of being able to just drift around the track appealed to me and it was certainly more fun with less traction.
I was worried that Mr 8 wouldn't handle it well on his own for his first time but he was tearing it up by the end of 2 sessions. I took Mr 5 on a dual kart and it was still awesome fun.
Price was good I think. $35 bucks for 2 sessions was awesome value I think for Mr 8 in a junior kart and $30 per race for a dual kart for me and Mr 5. We were the only ones on our sessions (go during the week as its quieter).
My only negative was that the dual kart didn't have timing as I would have liked to compare my times from my first go to my second and going further.... because we will be back.
Thankyou Slideways.

Great for Teenages and Teenagers at Heart
Nov. 2016 • Family
We had six people booked in to do a 3 race session, and although it is not cheap they all felt they had a long enough time during each race to truly get into it. It was busy with several other people included in our session and the races were stop/start due to the amount of crashes but the staff worked quickly to turn and reset the cars and restart the races.

Our six people had ball and are making plans for return trips and challenges.

Need to sort out their bookings- too many on track but still a fun day out
Jan. 2017 • Friends
Booked the track for a group of 10- however a booking error meant we had 6 extra people not from our group racing against us.
Very disappointed as the track is too small & tight for 16 carts to pass each other.
2 of our group pulled out on the 2nd race as they kept getting smashed into by the extra carts!
Apart from that- the track was fast, slippery & loads of fun.
