My grandsons age 12 & 9 years old loved racing each other. They said that they really liked it.

Do not purchase this. You are stuck on one track, a figure 8 with one section is dead. If going slow through there, the car stops. The employees were very rude too.

Please make it clearer on the Groupon that there is only one specific track that the Groupon is applicable for.

First off, your place is pretty amazing! Your tracks are very cool, and diverse. Everyone left saying, "very cool tracks!" Now, the casual racer is probably not your preferred clientele, and it showed. We felt a bit like, "Okay, a Groupon -- stick them over on that track." The explanation took all of a minute. Nothing on the computer was explained, nothing "pitched" about how racing takes place, what fun a "race" is, about tournaments, etc. We just figured it out as we went. We had fun, but felt more intrusive than someone you wanted to come back. Not once did anyone check up on us. Showing first-timers a bit more attention might not be your thing, but might just earn you new devotees.

The staff was really friendly and helpful, but the racing itself was too boring for a full hour. You could only use the one track and it was pretty boring.

I would go again if there was another groupon for it. We live kind of far so it would have to be worth my while. definitely had fun and would recommend to another.

What a fun place!! Kids had a blast and we did too. It was nice to see other people who were racing their own cars on the other tracks so the kids could see others (who knew what they were doing) do some high speed races.
