Description

We teach children how to drive go karts in a safe manner. They will be taught driving techniques and how to observe the safety procedures of a race track. We also have a lasertag arena, which is excellent for team building events and encouraging children to work together.

We manufacture the karts here so we can introduce students to the thought and work that goes into making them.


Why is this venue great for School Trips and Educational Visits?

Our venue is totally indoors with ample space for pupils and large carpark for coaches.

Students love the experience they have here and we have many pupils return with their families. We also have the ability to handle different amounts of students during their trip and tailor the activities to suit. Our venue was the first indoor karting arena in the UK to add on lasertag to its facilities.

Do you have any testimonials from previous customers who have visited you on an educational visit?

Hi Richard thanks for another great session karting on Wednesday, you always exceed our expectations and students had a great time, some even asked about buying karts. It was not so good for staff this time as they got beaten by the little feather weights. We do appreciate your professionalism and flexible approach when dealing with drivers with a range of abilities and attitudes.
