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.

Velocity Karts
Nov 2021 • Family
A fantastic activity for our students. Well organised and managed, we felt confident that our students were safe at all times whilst they still enjoyed the thrill of Blokarting. Would not hesitate to recommend.

Amazing experience
Nov 2021 • Family
What a great day racing around in the blowkarts. The Velocity team explained well how to use the karts and gave good directions. My teenage son and me had great fun. Will definitely come back with the whole family. My teenage son is inspired to build one! Overall great experience and location is easy accessible by bus.

Great fun on the land yachts. It's amazing to feel the power of the wind in the sail! The drift carts are cool too! I'll be visiting here again for sure.

Oct 2021 • Family
My blended family including children aged between 8 up to 21 came along, including my 14 year old autistic visually impaired daughter. We all had a blast!! My special needs daughter felt she was in a safe environment to push her boundaries and loved every minute! Really worth a visit so much fun! Thanks Velocuty Karts Cathy W

Thanks for your awesome review and it was great to see your family all zooming around having fun despite some initial reluctance by a couple of them. We are really proud of how our blokarts build confidence and are so much fun for everyone that gives them a try. We look forward to seeing you again sometime soon. We appreciate your recommendation and naming us Velocuty! I'm sure that wasn't just a typo! Cheers Ian

A lot of fun. Karts go REALLY FAST
Oct 2021 • Friends
Went with some friends. To my surprise the karts reach a super high speed, which makes it real fun. You can tell the owner is really proud of his business and really goes the extra mile to make it fun for everyone. Really recommended

Graduation day blast
Oct 2021 • Family
For a yr 9 and 10 student group graduating from a term-long adventurous personal growth programme, this was a neat blast to finish on. The set-up was efficient, the running of it was responsive (to the group, to changing conditions), explanations adequate and nothing too complex: the boys had a great time; they may have appreciated a bit more of a challenge element (like personal time-laps or race or course changes etc). I'd come again.

Thanks for your review and we are pleased to hear the boys had a great time. Yes we certainly can offer races etc in our 1 hour sessions as our focus in the first 30 mins is just to ensure everyone can safely operate the equipment before trying to push any limits. It seemed the windy conditions were providing plenty of challenge to a good number of them. Hopefully we will see you again sometime. Cheers Ian

Family fun!
Oct 2021 • Family
Instructions were simple, it took only a few laps to get the hang of it, even for my 11 year old. Instructors were friendly & professional and helpful! We had an awesome time. Definitely will do it again.

Accessible Fun
Sep 2021
Trying to find something fun to do when you have a team member with mobility issues is near impossible. Velocity Karts was awesome! They go above and beyond to give everyone a fantastic experience.

Thanks for your lovely review and it is one of the most satisfying aspects of our business, creating an even playing field for those with restrictions. We thought your little team were great and were touched by the story that a group of boys had decided to specifically choose our blokarts to accompany a mate who was not going to be able to participate in the other activity the class was doing. What a great spirit. Thanks for your kind comments about our team, we really appreciate it. We look forward to seeing you again. Cheers Ian

A Great Family Activity
Oct 2021
We took our young adult children here. Instructions were clear. The karts were well maintained. We all had a blast on the karts. It was an exhilarating 30 minutes. The wind increased over our session in step with our improving driving skills. We were all moving fast and confidently chasing each other and having fun. A great activity.

We really appreciate your comments about our well maintained fleet and how exhilarating you found the session, it is really exciting when the wind picks up during a session. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Cheers Ian
