Are the Karts Safe?
Yes, and so are the operators! Safety is a paramount importance to Go Kart Party. The speed of the karts can be matched to the ability of the child, Karts can be set at speeds between 1 & 6 mph, they have a low centre of gravity, are fitted with a safety harness, have regenerative brakes, wrap around bumpers, sturdy padded roll cage and the event is Fully Supervised and structured.
Do the children wear crash helmets?
No, the Karts have a padded roll-bar which creates a completely safe cockpit designed and built with Health and Safety in mind. It is also not a legal requirement.
How fast do the karts go?
Karts can be programmed anywhere between a crawl of 1 mph to an exhilarating 6 mph, depending on the ability of the driver. Believe us when you are just 2 inches from the ground, with other karts around you, this is fast!
What do the other children do whilst waiting for their turn?
All of our parties are structured and designed to keep the children’s attention even whilst not on the karts. Children are divided into teams and encouraged to cheer on their team mates. Fast change over’s send a clear message to the children who are waiting that they will be on the Go-Karts in no time at all.
The children are very focused on the track as missing a go is a fate worse than death to them! We also encourage the children to cheer the drivers round and they also call out the last 10 seconds.
Are you insured?
Yes, In fact we have our very own insurance scheme underwritten at Lloyds of London with public liability cover of ?5 million.
What types of surface can the karts operate on?
Karts will run on any firm surface, tarmac, concrete, sports hall floors or grass without damaging the surface.
Do I have to book a venue?
No, we have venues available and once you confirm your booking with our operators, they will book the venue for you. The only part we don’t get involved in is the food due to dietary considerations. If you have a venue suitable for the karts let us know and our operator can check it out.
