Safety Waivers & Go-Kart Racing Rules

Know what you’re thinking… “Rules and safety waivers are dumb and inconvenient”. Yeah, we’re not big fans of them either but we gotta make the insurance company happy. New customers will sign the waivers when they check-in. For large groups, parties, and events it's recommended to print off and sign the safety waivers ahead of time. This will help speed up the check-in process when you're here. Safety waivers are required for the high-speed kart racing and all other activities except the arcade. Adult Safety Waiver

KART RACING RULES
Safety waivers are required for all Adult and Youth race participants. There's also a quick 3 minute safety video first time drivers need to watch before racing. Adult and Youth karts are not on track at the same time (they race in separate races). Why? Well quite simply our Adult karts = Heavy Mass + High Speed and our Youth Karts = Light Mass + High Speed. Newton’s Third Law of Motion states that when one body (adult kart) exerts a force on a second body (youth kart) there will be a massive crash resulting in the second body (youth kart) taking flight. Okay, made that last part up but you get the point.

Youth High-Speed Karts
- Ages 8 - 15 and at least 48” tall (this is a State requirement).
- Maximum weight 170 lbs.

Adult High-Speed Karts
- Ages 16+ with proof of age and at least 48” tall (again, this is a State requirement).
- Maximum weight 300 lbs.

Important Kart Track Rules
Okay, here’s the really important stuff… These are not bumper cars at an amusement park but rather professionally setup racing karts designed to go fast (yeah baby!). That’s why we give you a full face helmet and neck collar. If you receive a warning while racing, please understand that this is being done to ensure the safety of everyone racing which is more important to us than anything else. Accidents unfortunately happen when one or more customers do not follow our rules and pay attention to the flags and lights.

01. Always obey the track marshals. Any customer who ignores a warning by a marshal will be given a polite verbal warning after the race. Repeated offenses may result in a customer’s removal/ban from future races.

02. All drivers must wear a DOT approved full face helmet, neck collar, and closed toe shoes. We provide both of these but you can bring your own helmet and/or neck collar if you want. Just make sure they’re in good condition and have the proper DOT or SFI safety rating.

03. Kart racing poses special risks to people with neck or back problems, heart conditions, anyone who is pregnant, anyone who should not be in a stressful or physically demanding environment. If you have any doubt, please check with your doctor before racing.

04. The Pit has a strict "zero tolerance policy" regarding alcohol and/or drug abuse. Any person who fails or refuses to take a breathalyzer test, or appears to be under the influence, will not be permitted to race.

05. Just like in professional racing, we do not allow “intentional contact”. Of course we understand the saying “rubbin is racing” but anyone displaying aggression (physical or verbal) towards other customers or our track marshals will be removed from the race. No refunds will be given.

06. If you spin out the kart wait for a marshal to assist you. Under no circumstances should you attempt to get out of the kart or push yourself away from the barriers with either your hands or feet. Stay inside the kart at all times. Never drive backwards on the track to turn around.

  • Green Flag & Light

    article-photo safety-waiver-rules green-flag-v2For regular "Arrive & Drive" races the green light is displayed instead of the green flag. Once a track marshal sends a kart out of the pits they can start racing. Green flag is used for our Adult and Youth Leagues, Private Events, as well as Group and Corporate Events.
  • Blue Flag (with Yellow Stripe)

    article-photo safety-waiver-rules blue-flag-v2The Blue Flag is shown to inform a driver that there are faster karts behind them. That driver should move to the outside of the track and let the faster karts go by. Driver should be aware that there may be more than one kart passing.
  • Yellow Flag & Light

    article-photo safety-waiver-rules yellow-flag-v2All drivers must slow down. Yellow light and/or flag may be for a wreck on track but is most commonly used after the race is over. No racing should be done when the yellow light and/or flag is being displayed.
  • Red Flag & Light

    article-photo safety-waiver-rules red-flag-v2If the red light and/or flag is displayed all drivers should safely slow down and come to a complete stop as soon as possible. The karts may be remotely shut off for safety reasons. Stay seated in the kart until further instructed. A green light and/or flag will be displayed when it's safe to resume racing. Extra time will be added to the race for "Red Light" situations.
  • Black Flag

    article-photo safety-waiver-rules black-flag-v2If a driver receives the black flag they should head in to the pit area as soon as possible. This could be any numerous reasons including dangerous driving, undone seat-belt, no neck collar, or mechanical issue with the kart. Once in the pit a track marshal will resolve the situation.
  • White Flag

    article-photo safety-waiver-rules white-flag-v2The white flag signals the final lap of the race. This flag is not normally used for regular "Arrive & Drive" races. The white flag is used for Adult and Youth Leagues, Private Events, as well as Group and Corporate Events.
  • Checkered Flag

    article-photo safety-waiver-rules checkered-flag-v2For regular "Arrive & Drive" races the checkered flag signals the race is over. Once a driver receives the checkered flag they should immediately slow down and head to the pit area. There is no racing after the checkered flag even if there is no yellow light and or flag displayed. Once you come to a stop in the pit area do not get out of your kart until the marshal tells you.
