Why Adults Love K1 Speed Carlsbad

“One of the most adrenaline filled and fun activities to do for any group! I held a surprise birthday party here for my husband, and all 14 of our guests STILL talk about it (it’s been a few months now). I can’t help but rave about how kind, helpful and great the staff was while we all lived our best life! The cars are all electric, FAST, and SO.MUCH.FUN! 100/10 recommendation!”
– Corinna V. | 5-stars

“A great time. We went for my buddies bachelor party, and they treated us great. These things are fast!”
– Jonathan M. | 5-stars

“I wanted to throw a surprise party for my boyfriend so I called about two weeks ahead of time and a wonderful (and very patient) lady named Kelly didn’t even make me go online to register, she did everything for me over the phone. She responded almost immediately to every email I sent her afterwards, and answered all of my incessant questions. She even helped me out the morning of the party when I called in a panic to let her know that not 9 but 12 people would be attending (ages 23-32).
If you’re having a party, just pay the extra fee for your own ‘Mini-Grand Prix’. IT. IS. SO. WORTH. IT.
It’s an amazing experience to have with your loved ones and friends, and it helps fuel the competitive spirit.
Second was the actual party. We walked through the double doors and saw a large, friendly sign that says ‘Sign in here for First-time Racers.’ Perfect and very self-explanatory. We all signed in and had a nice man named Scott Russel give us a small safety brief, before putting on our helmets and sitting down for our race. Now I might sound biased, since I won first place, but this is the most fun I’ve had since my 16th birthday party at Disneyland. After the race, they gave us medals according to position and even took photos for us on the podiums, double checking if they could do anything else for us. YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME! We will be back very soon!!”
