So much fun! Staff very helpful and encouraging with their tips and advice. I'm a scaredy cat, and felt quite safe. Awesome fun when an unexpected breeze picks up! Do it...!

Thanks for your review and well done to you to overcome your "scaredy cat" tendency and have a blast on the blokarts. Great to hear you felt safe and found it awesome fun. Love your recommendation! Cheers Ian

It was such a cool experience. Easy to learn how to use and it’s great how they change the circuit for you depending on the wind.
I will be going back.
Highly recommend.

We were a small Team of people who all work together. We had a real mix of ages and these karts suited us with all levels of ability, fast or slow. It was so much fun, very safe & well organised! I would really recommend this for Team building, older Child or Adults birthday for something different & a little challenging. They also have drift bikes which I definitely will go back & have a go on.

After the Christchurch earthquakes, the place was a bit difficult to locate, but once found the experience was well worth the effort. We had good safety briefings and instruction on how to 'drive' the karts. We were kitted out with crash helmets etc and started on our experience. We all had a great time with some of us mastering the kart well and learned to sail them in the blustery conditions. We would return one day for a repeat experience. [The time we were there was December 2015]

Thanks for a very well considered review which was 3 years in the making! We really appreciate you writing it so long after visiting. We now have a new safety and instructional dvd plus have sealed our track so you'll be even more impressed on your next visit. We are back into the windier months again so are ready to see you again.

You definitely need it to be quite windy, but the staff are very attentive, the karts go very fast, so very good for youngsters, although they look after you even if you're in your late seventies and want an adventure.

Thanks for your review and great to hear you had an exciting experience with us. The blokarts are fun in all winds from 5-6 knots (10kph) upwards but as the wind gets stronger we put smaller sails on to keep it not too exciting ... for us too!! We love all participants to give blokarts a go and love seeing the 70 and 80+ year olds out with their families and friends. We look forward to your next visit. Cheers Ian
