An Exhilarating Signature Attraction!

K1 Speed is known worldwide for its upscale indoor go kart racing experience. Our go karts are 100% electric, so your guests won’t reek of exhaust fumes and can breathe easy with the absence of any noxious fumes circulating around.


And wait until your guests try our go karts that we import from Italy. These aren’t like those huge, slow, heavy and dirty “go karts” used at family fun centers like mini golf joints. Our karts are small, light, nimble and the fastest in the industry – approaching speeds of up to 45mph in a matter of seconds. It’s a full-on adrenaline rush that’s sure to produce nothing but smiles and laughter from all of your guests.


Afterall, there’s a reason why celebrities such as Beyoncé & Jay-ZChristian Bale, Usain Bolt, Lewis Hamilton, One Direction, Lonzo Ball, Dax Shepard, Heidi Klum, and countless others have squeezed a trip to K1 Speed into their busy schedule to enjoy some upscale entertainment.

Off-Track Entertainment!

Maybe some of your guests are more of the timid type, and don’t dream of becoming the next Formula One champion. Well, they can still have plenty of laughs and fun too. Our gaming area is stocked with something for everyone.


We’ve got plenty of games, from new hits to updated classics. We’ve got arcade video games, pool tables, air hockey and basketball hoops (pictured here) and prize machines for your guests to play. And there’s no height limit for the attractions here, so these games are perfect for guests of all ages.
