The Best Go-Karting in Auckland

Go-karts are just so much fun. Who doesn't like putting your foot down and fanging around a track as fast as you can?!

We've got some good choices for go-karting in Auckland and in our opinion these are the best. Whether you want a technical, all weather indoor track, something more suitable for the little ones, drift karting, or the full noise experience of the outdoor track next to the real race track at Hampton Downs. There is something for everyone…

Extreme Indoor Karts

Extreme Indoor Karts is the only two-level go-kart track in New Zealand. Their custom-made karts have 200cc Honda engines for a powerful racing experience. The track has a long straight section for speed, tight technical corners, and fast corners for passing. They have been in business for over twenty years.

The karts are inspected for safety by certified engineers. The timing system is fully automated and tracks lap times down to a 1000th of a second. They offer several racing options. With Arrive and Drive, you can drop in anytime to give go-kart racing a try or check out the extreme ramp. Their facilities are available for hire for parties and corporate events.

Developed by Peter Zyp in 1987, Blastacars is the world’s first drift kart track. The powerful karts are hand-crafted in New Zealand. Unlike ordinary go-karts, they are made to drift on indoor tracks. Because they are longer and thinner than other karts, they can accommodate larger people. Booster seats and extender pedals are available for smaller individuals and kids.

Blastacars provides kart speeds for all levels. Kids speed gives 8 to 12-year-olds a taste of driving at a safe and controlled speed. Pro speed provides drivers with an opportunity to drive a kart with a 390CC Honda Engine, the most powerful engine in New Zealand. Their large facility is available for private bookings. They have locations in Auckland and Hamilton.

Game Over

Game Over is an indoor adventure destination that offers go-karts, laser tag, mini-golf, and an arcade. The indoor karting experience, one of the most thrilling in New Zealand, is fun for all ages. They provide a high-speed competitive racing experience on a 200-meter challenging track.

Powered by electricity rather than petrol, the karts are better for the environment and produce no exhaust fumes. Yet, they perform well and with more torque and power than petrol-powered karts. The facility can be hired for birthday parties, holiday parties, and corporate events. Party tables, private rooms, party hosts, and catering are available.
