Drifting in Rotorua
Jul 2020 • Family
Had a great time. Len the staff member was patient with my 2 boys who had never done this sort of thing before, he gave them good advice and confidence and soon both myself and my boys were racing and drifting around the track. Was great to see huge smiles on their faces. Well done, highly recommend and once again, thanks to Len for making it such an enjoyable afternoon.

Never thought I could drift a Go Kart like this
Feb 2019 • Friends
It was a wonderful experience, the car is weds setup with decent performance, the tyres are certainly not in its peak due to the need of “Lack of grip” for drifting, but the Kart is in decent shape, at least it is not greasy at all.

The Track itself is pretty short, but it has enough corner for your swing your car around it. Again, it is not a greasy track, nor dusty neither, it is clean but shinny and looked slippery

The staff should be the boss, in fact, it is such a small venue so it won’t need many people to handle it anyway, and he is nice, a nice guy with quite a lot of automobile knowledge. He is relatively easy to chat with as long as you respect his rule, and he gradually release the power of his car to us as we get along

Generally, it’s fun, lots of fun, a lot of fun!!!! I didn’t realise I could drift a Kart like this.... it’s easy to control, and power is not an issue, because the boss generally give you more if he see you could control the Kart, in general, I recommend if you’re a petrol head!!

Birthday Bash continued
Feb 2018 • Family
As part of my sons 15th Birthday, he requested drift carting. My son and daughter selected the top option of 3 races and a practice race, this set me back $90 for about 30 minutes of entertainment.
They both had heaps of fun but I thought the place is looking a little tired and could probably do with a revamp (track and carts).
The staff member on that day was awesome and friendly, it helps if you have good customer service.

Rude & unhelpful staff
Jan 2018 • Family
Want somewhere fun to take your kids for their 12th Birthday? Don't bring them here. Tuesday 23rd January bought William & friends after visiting the week before, to check they'd be OK to participate. Measured the kids to make sure they were correct height 150cms. Got there & their 150cms is about 157cms. Unhelpful & rude employee said they're under the line, they cannot ride. Slammed the glass divider shut & ignored us. Only when I asked a friend to bring a tape measure so we could prove the kids were the height advertised on their website did he deem to let one of the kids sit in the go kart. Even though our kid could push all the pedals with knees still bent the rude employee ordered him out. Drift kartz change your website so that families like us don't waste our time & kids hopes. Train up on customer service too. Highly unrecommend!!!

Great fun, what a blast
Dec 2017 • Family
We were lucky and there were only 3 in my group racing.
I myself didn't race but the three teens did and they loved it!
We did the 10 minute race and that was plenty long enough but there are longer sessions you can get.
The place is indoors so it doesn't matter whether summer, winter or raining.
The staff are really helpful and for the final lap, they present the winner with the flag in their cart and they get an extra victory lap.
Who doesn't want a victory lap?!!

Staff are friendly and helpful. Had a great time. Circuit is around a curvey lap. I have not done much with Go Karts so I wasn't going too fast but you can get quite fast if you know what you're doing

Very friendly and helpful staff
Sep 2017 • Family
We visited here last night, first time in several years. Staff are still very friendly and extremely helpful to grandson of 14 who hasn't been before. One of the guys on the track helped him with ways to manage driving around the track.
It was a fun time with grandfather, two sons and grandson!
Track is a smaller track and being inside it is very noisy and a wee bit chilly on a cold evening. But there is a good stand to sit on, three tiered so plenty of room and good view over the track. My husband and sons have more recently been on larger outdoor tracks and perhaps prefer them now. But all still had a good time and especially grandson. As another reviewer has said, it is a little pricey considering size of track. And a pity it doesn't have laps times etc anymore at the end of racing. Still a good time was had by all

The track even though simple provided a challenging coarse which my brother and I took on with great speed. Moreover with great staff the experience was made a lot more enjoyable.
