If you're looking for some fast exciting go karts this is your place! Track is not huge but you go really fast! Although there is no bumping into each other, the staff doesn't stop you or bother you. Great fun! Would recommend and will return.

Went here after hearing good reviews when on vacation in Florida. Watched one race and decided not to ride. Track is very small and tight indoors, which means virtually no passing and low speeds. The operators kept flagging drivers for ANY contact with wall or...More

I think 48'' is the requirement and I don't know about age, but it is a pretty rugged experience. I would not let my 6 year old on them. Not your normal go-kart.

I'm 6'1 and I had no problems. There is nothing above your knees, so I don't see why there would be an issue.
