I've been to tracks all over the United States and haven't found any better than Pole Position Raceway. It really is a better experience and they have air conditioning throughout their entire facilities and their karts seem to be better maintained. I believe they have 7 tracks and just started franchising so I'm assuming that there will be more

We happened to be down in Irvine and heard about this place from some friends. We decided to check it out. We have been to Pole Position in Murrieta and thought it was about the same thing. Boy was I wrong. k one stinks, the employees were kind of rude and the karts did not handle well at all. I don't know if it was the asphalt or poor maintenance of the karts. Pole Position offers great services and great fast (46mph) karts on a concrete surface.... great for sliding around the fast tight corners. We only had a good time because we were visiting with friends but never again will I be visiting this track in Irvine, back to Pole Position is Murrieta I come. Next time our friends can drive out by us and check out real racing.

My parents took me and my younger brother there to race and my younger brother could no longer race their. The sold all their kids karts. (bummer for him) One of the employes told my parents about Pole Position Raceway in Corona (since they have kids karts as well as adults) WOW this place rocks. My adult kart went 41mph and i came in first!!! I live in Santa Ana but the drive out there was well worth it. My Dad even said the specials and the memberships are better at Pole Position.

I took my team to this site to have some fun, and we weren't disappointed. The facility is pretty large, with 2 or 3 tracks (one was not running). They do a pretty good job at instruction, both on the operation of the vehicles and on the safety regulations. These are serious go-karts -- I think they go 30-4p mph and I actually got motion sickness going around some of the curves! They give you sturdy helmets for protection, and the gokarts seem pretty stable and very hard to roll over. For a group like ours, they had little trophoes and gave us a picture. The races were only a few minutes but the package we received had three races so we had plenty of fun!

I had a blast here. Place is clean. Karts are well maintained. Staff was pleasant and helpful. The wait wasn't to long. Helmets and head socks were clean (two thumbs up). All in all a great experience.

I took my 14 year old son go karting for the first time. We went to K1 Irvine. He loved it. It was the best father son day that we have had in a long time. He begs me to drive my car all the time, I have Mazda. He joke and tells me that K1 karts run better than my car. He will be walking for the next two years!!! Thanks to K1 for making his day!

I checked out this indoor race track for the first time recently and was pretty impressed. The interiors were amazing and I spent a while looking at all of the artwork and memorabilia. The staff was all very helpful as well and courteous to the people in my party. I'd definitely recommend this location others and plan on checking out their track in Carlsbad too.

I've been a fan of K1 for years now. I go to the Carlsbad location whenever my friends and I need a cool place to unwind or need a birthday party venue. I checked out the Irvine location recently and was thrilled to see that the integrity of the company continued at other locations. Staff was amazing, memorabilia was fun to look at, and the location was clean and inviting. I've checked out Pole Position too, just to see if I was missing out on anything. Nope. Pole Position doesn't really compare service-wise. I'll continue to bring my friends to K1...keep up the good work guys!

Pros: awesome decor, excellent customer care, affordable

Cons: none

The track was ok, the staff was a bit young and rude for my taste. I personally prefer the concrete track that Pole Position Raceway uses. It doesn't grip like the asphalt, so at Pole Position I am able to drift and slide around the corners. It feels more like real racing to me. Pole Position also has a bad a@@ driving video featuring Jamie Little from ESPN. go check them out in person or check them out on the web. polepositionraceway dot com

Pros: umm can't think of any

Cons: asphalt track, rude young employees, few arcade games

This is an indoor race track where you get to race with go-carts that go up to 40 miles per hour. You get a full jump suit, gloves, helmet, and face mask to wear. At one race you get 20 laps and 16 racers. Practice your drifting skills as well.

I took my family there for a fun filled Saturday. I was told they were kid friendly by friends and a great place to spend a few hours. I was disappointed when I arrived to find out they recently got rid of all their kid go karts. For being as slow as they were on a weekend I also expected a little better customer service. I thought since we were there my kids might want to play sum arcade games but after a short time they were bored with the few games they had so we left. I will have to find a much friendlier Kid friendly indoor go kart track to take my disappointed family too.

Our entire company went to K1 Speed for a fun activity a couple of times. Every time we went we had a LOT of fun. The staff was so helpful in getting our teams together and we even got trophies at the end. One of our team members had a small incident and the entire team immediately rushed to see if he was alright. Everything was fine but t see how much they care about their customers was incredible.. Woudl highly recommend it.

Best indoor racing around. Very realistic racing pit atmosphere. Great staff. Family fun. A snack bar with plenty of goods and refreshments. a game room with some hot video games and air hockey. comfy sofa seats for lounging around if you don't wanna race. Real gear for purchase shirts hats gloves. Not a cheap trip. Bring some spending money.

Very cool experience. I was a little scared at first but after a few laps got the hang of it. You are very safe with seat belt helmet and the carts are very safe too. Great event for groups.
