*The go-karts are suitable for children 3 years and up. All children must wear secure shoes (not flip-flops) when using the go-karts due to health and safety regulations.

Really great place for kids. Easy to keep track of where your kids are and so much for them to do. Food available is well priced and varied. Especially good in the summer when it expands to include the bowls hall. A Cobb
