  • We caught it on an awesome sunny day and was massively surprised by the electric carts. They’re surely different to the petrol we’re used to but lack nothing. Good acceleration, speed and completely different handling. Not sure if that’s the track or the karts. Had so much fun we had a few goes and will be sure to go again. Can’t wait to hit it in a Saturday when the petrol karts are out. Give them a call to see if the whole track is open, even if it isn’t the half track is still a great laugh. Thanks to all the staff who were top!Garth
  • Dropped in yesterday with a mate on the way to the Gorge, unexpectedly. Had a ten minute blast, never been karting before. Now I want to come back for my 30th in July for a Super Sprint. So much fun!Greg
  • Awesome outdoor track with friendly, professional staff! The marshals can make it very entertaining and you know you’re in safe hands with them! I have to say, I was very surprised at how good the karts and the track is! Well worth a visit- definitely be back again!Katie
  • A fabulous afternoon with the family with very patient and understanding staff who made the whole experience fun for our group which included two young adults with additional needs who had an absolute blast , thank you to everyone … We will definitely be backPenny
  • Been to their cheddar centre before and really enjoyed it so I thought I’d try their new track! And what a great track it is, the blind hairpins and tightening chicanes keep you on your toes! The new electric karts are awesome too, very responsive, pick up instantly and they’re mega grippy too! Really good bunch of lads down there makes the whole experience one I will be repeating time and time again!!James
