Fast, whipy controlled fury. Tons of fun with high speed indoor racing at its best. It's a must do if you find yourself in Syracuse

We had gone to another raceway and had such a good experience, we decided to try this location out for our 9 year old's birthday. He absolutely loved it. Staff was professional and courteous. Great electric go karts. This was a perfect attraction in destiny usa to spend the day along with other attractions.

What an experience. I will say this, I am 6'5", which i found out very quickly is too tall for these gokarts. I was very uncomfortable. Had a very difficult time racing, and paid for it in lap times. I will say though, hitting those corners at 45 mph was intense. Regardless of the pain and uncomfortableness, I had a... More

Went here with my two daughters. They got to race with other kids and I raced against other adults. Carts are fast! Lots of rules, and staff, so I also felt very safe. $84 for all three of us, taxes in, for nearly an hour. Highly recommended!

Wanna race legally? Pole position will set you back in your seat with high power fast moving go karts in doors rain or shine hot or cold. One race turns into 100 it's addicting (I've literally raced over 100 times there) Tad pricey buts it's a thrill 14 laps 45 mph Can you beat the clock and other racers?

My son took a ride for his birthday. He really enjoyed it. There was a short wait as it was a sunny weekday. It was probably rare but he had the whole course to himself and he had a great time! The workers were nice. Great treat for a pre-teens bday.

We were in town for a family reunion and had an afternoon to kill. We were delighted to happen upon the raceway at the mall. It was great fun racing each other around the track.

Took my son here on a day off from school. He had fun racing others. The only downside is if there are newer racers that put along and do not pay attention to the official to stay out of the way.

- No refunds. Get that one first, that one is important. Located at Destiny USA mall in Syracuse, NY, this indoor electric racetrack for gokarts looks awesome! Yellow and black bumpers mark the track layout that you walk around in order to watch a quick video. Get seated in your squishy gokart after being told it isn't a race- you... More
