Review of Fast Lap Indoor Kart Racing! Thanks!
When you arrive to the location, it doesn’t look like your usual go kart amusement place. This is the real deal. Unlike the other places in the area, Fast Lap is well known to the pros and celebrities. It’s secluded, away from the strip and other commercialized/tourist sightings. It’s not kid-friendly, so you can be sure this is serious sh*t.
Once inside, you’ll sign a waiver that pretty much states you’re aware of what you’re doing and Fast Lap is not liable for any injuries and etc. that may happen. Nothing to worry about, it’s just procedures. Even the place I rock-climb at makes me sign a waiver. **TIP: Local specials – buy one get one FREE!!!** So be sure to show that you’re a local. You can either save the free use for next time or you can double the joy that day! I always combine it for that day’s fun.
After the paperwork and paying the front, you’ll go in the back room where you’ll watch a little video. They will go over the instructions and rules. They will show you how to wear you head mask underneath the helmet and your racer jumpsuit. Yes, like I said before… this is serious sh*t. Not a kid-friendly place. The jumpsuit is optional but fun to throw on if you’re with a big group of friends. You’ll then go out back to the main area to pick your helmet and wait your turn to go on the tracks.
You have a choice to either do a race against the other drivers or just drive your laps. We always do our laps and not race, only because we have more fun practicing on our own. The course is really great! They have about 7-8 turns (give or take) with a few sharp turns. I loved the turns, because I am all into practicing my drifting skills!! Now… drifting is not allowed per the rules, but the people are so cool at the times I’m there, that they let me do it. Sometimes they’ll even join in with us and show us their skills.
At end of your session, the guy will checkered flag you in and they will show you a print out of your times on each lap. It’ll also show a comparison with other drivers that day, and those that drove with you.
The staff are mad cool and great people. This is a great place for an adrenaline rush. It’s relaxing to me and I just love the rush~! Every time I’m there, I never want to leave!
