About
Two great choices of outrageous fun on 3 wheels: -Wind powered blokart (land yachts) and Electric Driftkarts. We have two purpose built tracks in Christchurch where you can hire a kart and have some fun with family, friends and colleagues. Blokarts are an amazingly inclusive activity for all ages (8 to 80+) and abilities. We have 2 person karts for those who aren't quite able to go it alone or prefer to share the experience. Being powered by nature ticks the sustainability box for guilt free fun. Grab a group of 6-12 people and try our our unique Human Foosball, the only one of it's kind in Christchurch. Just like the table game except you are the players. Hilarious fun and as competitive as you want this complements our energy efficient activities, harnessing Human Power. Fun for all, individuals and groups.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

When visiting Christchurch, our family came out to experience both Blokarts and Driftkarts.

The Velocity Kart team hosting us were very helpful, patient and have a good sense of humor!

Driftkarts were great fun. We found them a little challenging to master but don't take things to seriously and that's part of the fun. I was the only one who experienced this but I was reminded by my inner thigh muscles that I'd done it the next day or maybe two. :-)

Blokarts were a blast. We didn't find the learning curve to be as steep and we had a great time racing among our small group - neck and neck around the course. (When we were there, the wind was consistent and not overly strong.) Taking these on those long, drivable beaches would be a kick, too!

What a fantastic time!!! The Velocity crew were awesome, very encouraging with lots of laughs and banter. I went with my 12 and 19 year olds and we all had a blast on the karts! No experience needed, very safe and clear instructions. Will definitely be back! They take heaps of photos at no extra cost too….added bonus!

Wanting to do something 'different' we looked up land yachting & found Blo karts. We booked forvhalf an hour and it went like 10 minutes! Great training & prep session, safety gear provided, easy to get going, and we both had a great time. Its a really well run operstion and we'll definitely be back for more.
