Overview

Come and check out the latest addition to ASB Baypark... blokarts & Drift Trikes! Have a blast on the land sailing machine which has taken the world by storm. Small and easy to manoeuvre, blokarts are a heap of fun for the whole family! Plus let the excitement continue with a spin on our all-weather electric Drift Trikes. These three wheeled machines have low-traction rear wheels meaning you'll be skidding around our track in no time.

On a windless day (not for blokarts) we tried the drift bikes for some brilliant fun. From what I understand these are invented and made on site. The young staff could possibly be a bit more polished but it's still a very enjoyable outing.

Visited with friends. We went on a pretty windy day and I ended up flipping my kart 3 times. The staff were very helpful and quick to get to my side. This was my second visit and I would do it again.

Blokarts are best to go mid week on a windy day. It takes a few laps to get the hang of the ropes to let the sail out and pull it in. Cart will get up on two wheels. Number one rule, "Let the rope...More

Great upbeat staff who are very helpful. Highly recommend this activity though it's very cramped if you're tall. Reasonable prices at $30 pp for 30 mins. We had loads of fun and there's something fun here for all ages.
