For adults, they have the Slick Track and the Turbo track with a 32 degree corkscrew barrel turn. No matter what level or age group you’re taking, there is going to be something for you here. 

Karts: Just like with their tracks, Go Kart World has a long list of different karts to match.

For the youngest visitors, there are battery powered Go Karts that top out at 3 mph – a great introduction to Go Karting or driving in general. They also offer bumper karts and junior karts for older kids.

For adults, they have ‘SLICK’ Karts that can be cut down to ½ speed so that the rider can get more confident before hitting top speeds. They also offer  ‘Champ’ Karts that require racing experience and can reach up to 42 mph.

For experts, they offer Euro Karts that can reach high speeds and require a specific racing license. 

Speeds: Top Speed on the Euro Karts is 45 mph. 

Food & Beverages: They offer party packages that include food such as pizza, cake, cupcakes, and non-alcoholic drinks. They also offer catering by Full Send BBQ if you’re looking to have a proper feast.

Restrictions: There is a large range of restrictions depending on the track and karts you’re racing on. Kids as young as 3 years old and 32” can come and ride along as passengers in double-seater karts.

The more complex the Kart, the taller the child/teen/adult will have to be. For the Super Track with full speed karts, there is a restriction of 60”. 

It’s also worth noting that for some of the faster karts you will have to prove your driving experience. If you want to know more about the restrictions at Go Kart World, click here and scroll to the bottom of the page for a comprehensive minimum height requirement section.

Entertainment & Merch Shop: There is a merch shop that sells pieces of K1 memorabilia, as well as an entertainment section with arcade games to chill out after a race.
