K1 Speed Columbus – Arrive & Drive

Have you and your friends been thinking about things to do tonight? At K1 Speed Columbus, we can provide you with an unforgettable, adrenaline-pumping experience. Our indoor karting center is unlike any other go-kart track you’ve been to before. Unlike the go-kart track at your local miniature golf course, our tracks are professionally designed, fully enclosed for racing in rain or shine, and well maintained. We don’t differentiate ourselves from the competition simply through our centers though. Our high-performance electric karts are in a different league altogether from the anemic, lawn mower-powered karts you’re accustomed to. Capable of speeds approaching 45mph, our electric karts have maximum torque available from 0 rpm and accelerate to their top speed almost instantly. If you’re used to the putt-putt-putt of a gas-powered kart as it slowly accelerates to speed, we can assure you that our karts will permanently change your expectations – they provide genuine thrills, whether you’re a novice or a seasoned enthusiast.

 

Once people sample experience the performance of our karts and see our indoor tracks in person, they never go back. If you live in the Columbus area and want to try go-kart racing, give K1 Speed a try. You won’t be disappointed!

Arrive & Drive Racing – Race our Karts, Anytime

Though we offer a wide range of race packages for parties of 8 or more, our most popular attraction is our Arrive & Drive race option. In an Arrive & Drive race, up to 12 racers at a time take to the track to race against the clock. Rather than race for position, which can reward pure luck or simply good blocking skills which we highly discourage, our Arrive & Drive races reward consistency, skill, and strategy. Setting a good lap time often involves navigating slower traffic or creating a hole so that you have a free and open track ahead of you. Just like qualifying in Formula One, one wrong move can ruin your lap time and prevent you from taking home the victory. We offer live telemetry so that you can monitor your on-track performance in real time and make necessary adjustments. After the race, you can compare your overall performance to every participant who has ever attended a K1 Speed indoor karting center.

Experience the Thrills Today

If you’re interested in go-kart racing, the Arrive & Drive option at K1 Speed Columbus is for you. As any number of professional race car drivers can attest to, including Travis Pastrana, Boris Said and Denny Hamlin of NASCAR, Juan Pablo Montoya, and Ron Capps, go-kart racing at K1 Speed is a genuine thrill! In fact, don’t be surprised if the adrenaline and sweat are pumping when you get off of the track. We must warn you that speed is addictive though! Many first-time racers buy one race to begin with, but you’ll find that many of our regular competitors opt for the combo pack of 3 races!

Went with my brothers for a special event. We had the grand prix style race with three sessions and it was a BLAST. It was my first time at k1 and the karts were quick and the track was fun and technical. The staff was friendly, fun and professional. They worked with a sense of urgency and you could tell they liked where they worked. Thanks for the experience!

Location, Vibes, Track, and the employees were great. Phenomenal!My only concern was the 1st Apex turn in the course. I was never informed, before we started to go into our Karts, that the turn was a 180°. Luckily, I didn't cause a crash, but notoriously for potential new drivers, there are constant crashes when I visited. To a point where a big BOOM was heard throught the course whenever a new race started. I wasn't sure if they were informed or not, but behind the wheel, it's a whole different story and the mind goes blank.Regardless, course was awazing, and i'd 100% race there again if I'm in the neighborhood.

Fun racing. Karts are so small. Knees at your chin. Indoor kart racing. No VA discount 😞.

It has been a good experience all around, waiting time is always expected to be around 1 hr before your first race.

The racing was great. The track is super fun and challenging. The on track staff was fantastic. I didn't get a chance to try the food and drinks but appreciated that there was an option. The only thing that was a little hard to gauge was the race times. It would be nice to have it displayed somewhere so that you can understand when you are going to race next. Great time though and I will be back with the kids to do more racing.

Real fun time. My only complaint would be in the second race the karts were entered incorrectly in the computer so the print showed the order of names as who placed and won the race. Only 4 karts so we know who won. But over all a fun time and definitely do it again.
