Minors (17 or under) – Accompanied by a parent or legal guardian:

  • must sign the 2-page daily minor waiver at the gate.
  • VERY IMPORTANT: Make sure the 2-page waiver is completed on both sides.  Parental Waiver (parent’s information) and Minor’s Assumptions (minors information).

Minors (17 or under) – NOT Accompanied by a parent or legal guardian:

Summer Hours are 1 to 8 PM. Winter hours are 1 to 6 pm

We monitor the weather and will close the track if there is lightning, thunder, or water build-up on the track. Please check the traffic conditions notice in the top navigation bar for up to date information.

Occasionally the track is closed for a special event, such as our monthly karting series. Please check the calendar for full event listings.

What do I need to bring to the kart track?

We are well-prepared for you.  We have the required head socks for sale if you don’t have one. Your ticket includes your helmet.

You just need to remember to wear close-toed shoes. If it is cold or windy, bring gloves.

If you are 16 years of age without a license, you need to bring proof of your birthdate.

What if it is raining?

Our karts run in the rain unless it conditions are particularly heavy. We will look at the conditions and post our status in the navigation bar at the top of our website. Typically, we will run our schedule unless there is thunder, lightning, or water builds up on the track.
