What Parents of Teens Say About K1 Speed Buffalo Grove

“Great place for kids and adults of all ages. Very friendly staff. Awesome karts. Large racing areas – separate for adult and junior racers. The bar area upstairs is very nice too. Good drinks and food. You can watch other people racing while having your drinks with friends. Had a junior birthday party there. Very well organized and tons of fun! Awesome place.”

“Took our son there for his Birthday, and the staff could have been more accommodating and  professional.  Everyone was friendly and took the time make sure our son was happy.  Any little request we had was taken care of and they treated him like a racing champ and he felt like one.  He hasn’t stopped talking about it since.  Props to all the staff.  🙂  Thank you for making our sons first K1 experience a memorable one!”
