Here’re 5 best Go-Kart tracks in LA (Affordable)

There’s something about Go-Karts that just makes you feel like a kid again. Maybe it’s the thrill of racing around turns and through curves, or the sense of speed as you zip past other drivers. If you’re looking for a great place to drive Go-Karts in LA, check out these five tracks!

Before you go, if you’ve never been to a go-kart racing center before, here’re some tips for you:

  • Wear closed-toe shoes. You don’t want to risk injury by racing in flip-flops or sandals.
  • Wear clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty or stained. Some renting go-karts can be quite dirty
  • Hair ties if you have long hair
  • If you’ve already got a full face helmet, that’s good. If not, renting one costs you around 5 bucks.

Without further ado, let’s get to the tracks!

Note: The list below is conducted based on google map and yelp reviews.

Customers’ review:

“What an AMAZING place to spend the day with my Family. This was my first time there and I had a Blast. The prices were very decent to the Excitement you will have. Since it was my first time in a race cart, and they go up to 45 MPH. I did not do so we. I placed 4th in my second race, but in my last race I finished #2. THE PIT crew as friendly, fun and the made feel like they enjoyed helping me and they were there very friendly. I got there when they opened up at 10:00am but as soon as I walked thru the door they became very busy. I will be returning and so will you. What a AMAZING experience” – Ronnie Stephen (Google map review)

“Staff at the front desk were very nice and helpful. The food came out quick and was tasty. My kids had a blast in the arcade section. Wait time for races were reasonable. Definitely coming back!” – Rich J (Yelp review)


2. Go-kart World

Go-kart World track

This go-kart track is a great place for beginners. It offers karts for both children and adults, as well as a variety of tracks to choose from.

There are two types of tickets you can choose from – timed wristbands or per-ride tickets so that you can pick what’s best 2 for you. If you’re looking for race super tracks, then the per-ride tickets would be the better option.

In case you’re an adult looking for a good time, do the slick tracks; it takes about an hour. Although getting this track takes extra $5, it’s twice as long as a normal race on the super track. Due to the slick track surface and high speed of the karts, this is by far the most exciting and technical course.

Requirements:

  • Bumper karts: at least 43”
  • Mini Indy: at least 45”
  • Formula karts: at least 48”
  • Super & slick (50% speed): at least 52”
  • Slick tracks (100% speed): at least 56”
  • Turbo tracks: at least 58”
  • Super tracks: 60”

Customers’ review:

“Excellent place for young kids to get the taste of the cars world. They have six different tracks ranging from young 4 year old all the way to teenagers and adults. All The cars a gasoline powered. Plenty of space to watch. Small arcade place with old games. Recommend to buy per ride tickets when crowded instead of time packages” – American Riviera Tours (Google map review)

“Had an amazing experience with a first time kart rider today, my son who is 4 loved it. Don’t let the looks of this place deceive you. Location just off the freeway looks sketchy, but if you’re focused on riding, this place is a blast. They have six, well designed tracks. Karts are a bit old, but do their job. More exciting is they have quicker karts on two of the long tracks for you to ride with proper gear (helmets required). Inside arcade could use an upgrade. Some games are in need of repair. All in all, a great experience, will be back!” – David G. (Yelp review).
