We visited as a family. The young guys running the place on the day were friendly and helpful. Overalls and safety kit are provided and prices start from £15 for 15 mins. 3 of us from 3 generations tried karting. My 12 yr old nephew...More

From the car park the track looks small, very deceiving as the track is of good size with bridge to go over and under. Reasonable price. Cafe on site plus toilets my daughter and her friends had a fabulous time. Defiantly going again.

Would get 5 stars if it was a bit less pricey. Track and equipment is very good. Makes it good fun. I have been a number of times and had a go at many of the different sessions offered.

Excellent fun, definitely worth going, no issues. Friendly staff and good karts, interesting track, especially the flyover. Only thing is it is quite narrow for overtaking - you can only get past if you are fairly aggressive! Kit is also a bit smelly, but when...More

Great fun day at this location, friendly owners, good karts and a brilliant track. Plus an on site cafe. A place to visit when in Buxton.

Visted earlier, great intro to karting 'there is only one rule, stay in the kart', however when on the track any minor mistake we made we were made to feel as though we were idiots. After paying the sort of money we did, I and...More
