The Perfect Venue for Your Kid’s Go Kart Birthday Party

The time has come for you to find another venue to celebrate your child’s birthday party. But with all the other options out there, it can become overwhelming to narrow your choice down to one place that can satisfy all the children, let alone a place that will give them something to talk about for weeks to come.


Enter K1 Speed. For the last 15 years, K1 Speed has been hosting children’s birthday parties that deliver excitement, thrills, and plenty of memories and keep children coming back for more.


“We can’t tell you how many times parents call our booking line to tell us that their child just came back from a friend’s party at K1 Speed, and now their child wants to have a party at K1 Speed too,” says Gary Bolotin, Director of Sales at K1 Speed. “It usually doesn’t take long for the parent to understand the appeal of our birthday parties.”


Our junior racing packages puts your child (who must be at least 48” tall) behind the wheel of the most authentic racing experience possible, without any compromise in safety.


Here’s How it Works


Any child that is new to K1 Speed will be given a full safety briefing that goes over the functionality of our electric go-karts, and what the racing flags mean prior to their first racing session.


After the safety briefing, the children will then be treated to at least two racing sessions – a qualifying race and final race. The qualifying race is a shootout for the fastest lap time. At the end of the qualifying race, the children will be ranked by lap times (fastest to slowest) which will then reflect the starting position of each child at the beginning of the final race.


After each race session, every child will receive a sheet with all their lap times and their finishing positions. Kids are usually filled with adrenaline and love comparing their times with each other. However, if the kids need some extra stimuli, they will continue to be entertained by our on-site arcade which typically features video games and a table game such as a billiards table and/or foosball table. Our on-site Pit Café or Paddock Lounge can provide a light refreshment and/or snack as well if they need to quickly re-fuel.


The final race is an all-out battle for position on the track. You’ll love watching this race trackside as the kids go head-to-head against each other in our go-karts, and we encourage parents to join in the fun by cheering on their kid!


At the end of the race, the top three finishers will be led onto our podium, where the top three will be awarded a medal or trophy. The birthday child will receive a medal regardless of their final position, and every child that races will be able to take home their headsock – so everyone receives a souvenir in the end! Plus, we’ll take a podium photo of your entire group to email out afterwards that will forever immortalize the awesome party you just treated these kids to.


Don’t Forget Food and a Room


At most locations, we offer an All-Inclusive Package as an extra add-on after the racing has finished. This package turns your racing into a well-rounded event with food, beverages and a party room for just one low price. The All-Inclusive Package will provide your group with one hour in a party room, plus two or three large pizzas and 12-16 drinks! Just ask a group sales associate to see how you can add this on!


A One-Of-A-Kind Trophy (optional)


To cap things off, our Tire Trophy makes for an excellent takeaway for the birthday child, and a guaranteed unique party favor no matter what position they finish. The Tire Trophy features the same kind of karting tire used on our karts, that can then be signed by everyone in the party group. Once home, the tire stands out on any bookshelf as the ultimate birthday party favor.

At just $29, this one-of-a-kind trophy is a bargain!

    How much is an All-Exlusive pagacke because I am considering having my 11 year old. She will be turning 12 and she is pretty tall so she would be considered an adult but she had friends that are much shorter than her that would be considered kids. So I am wondering if she can have all different heights with her at the party, the price for a birthday party, if I can reserve for 2 hours.
    Thank you!
