Unfortunately the day we went there wasn't a lot of wind so wasn't that exciting but you could see that it could be. The crew there are all lovely!

Ian went out of his way to work in with my other bookings. When we arrived he explained everything well and then set up a course to suit the wind. It was a fun activity to do in Chrsitchurch and got you out of the city centre for a bit near the coast. Unfortunately I didn't get to do the... More

Thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality. We had 4 tickets to use from Grab One and my mum hurt her back, therefore couldn't do it. You gave split her ticket time and gave the 3 of us an extra 10 minutes. Wonderful!

Thanks for your lovely review. It was unbelievable to have such a rain storm right at the moment you were ready to start. We so appreciated you returning the next day and it was great to see Dad and children have a cool drifting session. Look forward to your next visit to Christchurch. Cheers Ian More

Our family (comprising 2 adults + 3 kids ages 14, 13 & 8) had an absolute blast doing this! The staff were great, the karts were all perfectly clean & maintained and even the wind played ball! Such good fun, can't recommend it highly enough

We had an amazing time. The Velocity Kart team were brilliant at teaching us how to sail the blokarts. We booked for Saturday but there was no wind! This was no problem as we were easily rescheduled for Sunday, and the wind was perfect. It really would be great for all ages, and whether you want to go around the... More

Thanks for rescheduling your session with us. Being a windy spot in a windy city means we don't run out of wind too often. I love your assessment of the blokarts, it's great, sail it to the level you feel comfortable, fast or a bit slower and it really is for all ages. Thanks for taking the time to write... More

This birthday gift for my 67 year old mum visiting the South Island turned out to be the most exciting adventure sport she has ever attempted on dry land! The Velocity Kart team were totally welcoming and reassuring on our arrival which helped to dispell my mothers (and my own) intrepidation we may be 'too old'. Velocity Karts were completely... More
