If you are looking to book a party and already have a private venue or are a school or holiday/community scheme and already have a venue such as a sports hall or school playground, car park or field, we will come along and conduct a risk assessment visit.

 

How safe are the karts?

Safety is of paramount importance to Go-Kart Party and children are closely monitored. The speed of the Karts can be matched to the ability of the child. Karts can be set at speeds from 1-7mph. They have a low centre of gravity, are all fitted with safety harnesses, have regenerative brakes, wrap round bumpers, sturdy padded roll cage and all events are fully supervised and structured by our trained staff.

 

Do the children wear crash helmets?

No-the Karts have a padded roll bar which creates a completely safe cockpit, built with Health and Safety in mind.

 

How fast do the Karts go?

Karts can be programmed from a 2mph crawl to an exhilarating 7mph, depending on the ability of the driver and close staff assessment of that ability. Believe us, 7mph is fast when you are 2 inches off the floor and driving with other drivers!

 

Are you fully insured & DBS checked?

Yes, we have full Public Liability Insurance up to 5 million pounds and all staff hold up to date DBS checks. Documentation is available on request-just ask for a copy!
