Tampa Bay Grand Prix is a unique indoor go karting facility with two locations in the Tampa Bay area. Locations are in Sabal Park in Tampa and the Ulmerton area in Clearwater/St Petersburg. Come and race with our electric Italian pro-karts that reach speeds of up to 50 mph! Our tracks are designed for speed and challenge. The Tampa location has two tracks with two completely different layouts. Compete against friends, family, and other racing enthusiasts. Our facilities use the latest and safest equipment and technology. As every race ends, you will have your own personal race results. Even as you are racing, you will be able to view your lap times from a projector screen located right on the track. Tampa Bay Grand Prix welcomes walk-in racers 7 days a week, and we also take reservations for corporate events, birthdays, and private parties. We have private rooms available for your special event. Enjoy our comfortable lounge area equipped with flat-screens for your viewing pleasure, and free Wi-Fi.

I have a family of 6 and found this place in a flyer at our resort. The special was buy 2 and get 1 free on a Wednesday or Thursday for $32. We drove 30 minutes to get there and was told that the special was not valid during spring break. There was no wording of such on the flyer.... More

As far as the go carts and track are concerned, our small group of 3 had a great time. It really was a lot of fun. If I were to just review the actual go cart experience, I would give them 5 stars. There's more to the entire experience though, and the poor service and lack of organization earns them... More

Took our soccer team here on a rainy afternoon. For about $40 they boys got 3 races. They raced each other and other people. Each race was a little different mix.

Its a pricey but fun place. You are in a race with your friends and other groups. There are slow and fast racers. There are safe and dangerous racers. If you get in a good group its very cool. If you get in with a bad group, well the result is bad. Carts are quick, some quicker than others. Watch... More

Ideally you race with just those you came with, which cuts down on the reckless driving. Lots of "tech", including a live leader board for those who are watching and not driving. Nice fast experience that's over in 16 laps, which makes it prime for a rainy day activity. Safety violations slow all cars automatically and can really detract from... More

Paid $89 for four riders. Lasted 10 nerve wracking minutes. There was an unfriendly driver that wasn't following the rules and didn't get ejected from the track. Was hoping it would just be our family, but four other riders were added at last minute. Staff was pleasant, track is indoors. Parking lot could use more lighting since it's in the... More

These carts are fast & really fun but beware that you can be injured as I was when the track stewards (that appeared to be under 18 years old) don't do their job by manually putting all carts on slow speed when there is a wreck. The track stewards (2 of them) had more than adequate time to do the... More

Spend the money to experience these super fast go-karts! You'll be strapped in with a 5-point harness and will wear a snug-fitting helmet. Speeds are insanely fast so there's an inherent risk of injury but the workers carefully monitor the drivers. Unlike many other go-kart places, you'll receive a printout of your lap speeds. Spend the money. It's worth at... More
