"Top Activity in Christchurch
This was one of the most awesome experiences we have had, and definitely ranks up the top for activities in Christchurch, good for the whole family and incredibly friendly and accommodating staff. I would totally recommend giving the blokarting a go, it's like nothing else I've ever tried!" (Facebook)
We didn't really know what to expect when we arrived, and my wife was trying to get out of it, but the staff were extremely friendly and very helpful, and in just a few minutes we were all whizzing around the track and having an absolute thrill! Can't recommend it enough". (Trip Advisor)
I took my son and three grand children to the Velocity Karts. Although none of the party had had this experience before they were enthralled. Could not fault the organisation, preparation for the rides and the monitoring of the rides. The kids had a "ball" of a time and kept the rest of us highly entertained. We will be returning as it is such a fun outdoor activity for young and older. Thank you Ian". (Trip Advisor)
Such an amazing experience!! We went on the blokart and the driftkart!!! Both were heaps of fun!!! Staff incredibly friendly and safety at the highest level!!! Can’t wait to come back and do it again!!" (from Australia)
"Great for Groups!
We were a small Team of people who all work together. We had a real mix of ages and these karts suited us with all levels of ability, fast or slow. It was so much fun, very safe & well organised! I would really recommend this for team building, child or adults birthday for something different & a little challenging." (Trip Advisor)
"Unique Kiwi Experience
Our teenager still insists it was the highlight of a 4 week trip around New Zealand!" (from Hawaii)
Arrived with wife and 3 reluctant children aged 15,15, and 11yrs, eyes cast down to their devices. An hour later it was “when can we go back”, and “did you see when I ....” they were buzzing.
Great fun for all. You can go as fast... or as slow as gives you a buzz. Easy to learn too. Only downside is kids now want to get a cart and join a club!" (Trip Advisor)
We had the most amazing time at Velocity karts. We were a group of 5 who wanted to do something fun for my husbands birthday. It was a bit windy when we got there , but we were set up with the smallest sail and we ended up having the most awesome time. My husband is a petrol head and I thought he might not like it as much but the windy conditions were perfect for him and we all enjoyed every minute of it. Ian was great! Very safety conscious and relaxed. It's a small family business , doing a great job and a must do activity when in Christchurch !!" (Trip Advisor)
"Brilliant for Our Special Needs Son!
A brilliant fun time had. We have a special needs boy who took to it with ease thanks to the staff who were professional, welcoming, easy going and very helpful. We had the biggest smiles. We will be back." (Trip Advisor)
