Do not let their fading sign deter you from stopping. Go carts seem very well kept. Employees were very sweet. Great time had by all! I haven’t seen my children smile that big in years! Thank you Galveston go carts!

Review №2

Good place for a few hours of fun. We went on a rainy day, so only used the arcade. It’s small, but fun.

Review №3

Small place but offers a lot of fun for kids. Nice go Karting track, arcade and ax throwing (that we didnt do). It has also a VR for single or double with many rides. This was a great alternative for the Galveston historic pier that was already closed. I wonder if this would be the future for all amusement parks...

If I could give this place 0 stars I would! We were on the island for my daughters sweet 16 celebration and this place was next door to where we were staying. My daughter asked to go so I jumped on the website looked at the hours and what all they had to do. The hours stated on the website stated they were their covid hours. When we arrived there was a large group of people standing at the door because the door was locked, after a few minutes they were let in. We jumped out of the car and went to the door at it was locked. We called the number and the very rude lady on the phone asked what all we were wanting to do so I told her go carts and ax throwing for sure and maybe more. She very rudely told me that they closed at 9 ( it was. It yet 9) I told her I went to the website and it says 10 and the door sign also said 10. Her response was “we don’t update our website” funny, I guess you don’t update your door sign either! They literally just let the other group in but not us! Lady was so rude too! Save your money and go one block away and play mini golf where they are very friendly and polite and it’s WAY cheaper!

Review №5

A fun little place to spend some time hanging out with friends to go kart or have a birthday party. Either way I believe anyone would enjoy coming. The ride packages are a fair price and they have a small arcade inside along with cheap snack prices. And in my opinion, two rides seem enough.

Review №6

Had a great time riding go carts and throwing axes. Batchelor weekend that made for some good memories.

Review №7

If I could give 0 stars I would. On Tuesday 8/4 in the afternoon I took my family here while on vacation thinking it would be a fun activity. When we arrived all the arcade machines were shut down do to covid, understandably, even though they are advertised as open. We proceeded to go to the counter to see what they did have open. The lady behind the counter looked as though she was listening to our questions but instead of answering us verbally she proceeded to point to a menu consisting of go-cart rides. Then she starts rambling and I realized she was actually on a phone call using her ear buds rather then listening to us at all. When I asked her a question about the go-carts she rolled her eyes and pointed at the menu again and continues her conversation with whoever is on her ear buds. After about 3 minutes of this we decided not to spend out hard earned vacation money on a place that doesnt even take the time to take care of their customers. Such a horrible experience. Maybe let the customer in front of you know your on a phone call and will be right with them rather than wasting my time with your attitude. Poor management to allow their employees to treat people this way. No wonder the place was empty.

It was ok... very small arcade. And it was quite expensive. Nothing special but I guess its ok if youre really bored... rather take a walk by the beach.

Review №9

Definitely overhyped and overpriced!!PLEASE READ!The “Arcade” if you want to call it that is comprised of about 12 outdated games, half of which do NOT work. The VR is $10 per person and its not even interactive its just a sit and watch for 2 minutes, which also make its overpriced considering I have my own $1200 VR set. The prizes for your tickets are these rinky dink toys from the dollar store, the go carts were decent but to spend $90 for 4 people for 15 minutes (With a Military Discount) is absurd. We didn’t do the throwing axes because we were already too deep in out wallets for this expensive a** place that was dead as the night. I think what truly upset me the most is that we drove from Laporte to Galveston (give or take a 55 minute drive), for something that looked excellent online and we received something subpar. If I could rate half a star I would have.

Review №10

Good place lots of fun the counter lady is a moron.

Review №11

Super fun, people were nice would def go back

Review №12

So much fun!!! Our kids loved it. A great way to spend some quality time with your family and friends.

Review №13

Everything but the go carts were not operational due to covid-19 but go carts were fun. A bit pricey. $37 for two people for 10 minutes...

Review №14

Amazing staff, very friendly and willing to chat about kart racing and maintinance. Arcades got a few classics, and the karts run full power untill its time to pull back in. Great views, nice pavement. A hidden gem if you need your fill of speed or Crazy Taxi on the Island.

Review №15

This is a great place on the island!! We loved it. Will come back again tomorrow for the axe throwing

Review №16

This place is very clean. They sanitize every time another person ride the karts. Very good practice! Safe and fun

Review №17

Great place for some drifting action! Had a lot of fun! Highly recommended

Review №18

Ehhh kids liked it but not much to do assuming because of covid but might go back

Review №19

So - I admittedly did not get to ride the go karts - we went on a rainy day because there just isn’t a lot for kids to do on the island when it rains.However, it was pretty horrible. Half the arcade games didn’t work, and ones that were plugged in didn’t work properly (gas pedal unresponsive etc.), and there was the wonderful mildew welcome in the back room.One star for being an affordable option, another for being open.

Review №20

Reasonably priced and well managed. We had a lot of fun on the go kart track

Review №21

VR is really cool. My grandma had the rollercoaster ride and she loved it

Review №22

WOW. So much fun!! We purcahsed 3 rounds of gokarts. Couldnt get enough of the drifting action! Will come back tomorrow

Review №23

We had a lot of fun here. Go karts and Axe Throwing are really cool

Review №24

Not as fun as it sounds. Arcade is really small, maybe about 8 consoles and they werent even turned on. Go Kart track is really small and they didnt sanitize the karts after the group before us was finished. A little pricey for one go kart ride and the staff werent the most welcoming.

Review №25

Have to be 56 inches to drive. 40 inches to drive so as a family of 5 we could not buddy up to drive go karts as 1 kid would have been left out. Also, It is $10 per go kart ride and $12 for passengers. So we left with sad kiddos.

Review №26

Great place to be a teenager again!!

Review №27

An awesome experience. We had a blast

Review №28

We bought 4 rounds of go karts. Had so much fun!!

Review №29

This place never disappoints the family. This place is the place to go to if you want to save money on go karts and bumper karts. They even have the virtual reality games. That is the best part. Thanks to Amy and her crew for making my brothers 13th birthday a blast again. We will be back. I recommend this place better than bay area race way...

Review №30

Great for family fun. Not crowded and we had an amazing time with go karts, axe throwing a d bumper cars.

Review №31

Small track but kids had fun. Can be difficult to find.

Review №32

We came here by friends recommendation and it did not disappoint us~~ What a great place for families to spend quality time on holidays and weekends! There are so many fun things for both kids and adults including Go Karts, Sand Digging, and many kinds of Arcade games. The staff are very professional, nice, and friendly. They would help you with whatever you need regarding the games. Everything was well organized and regulated. So we were not concerned at all. Anyway, highly recommend! !

Review №33

Carts were awesome. The place definitely needs some updates tho

Review №34

Not all of the arcade machines are working but the outdoor activities are the main attraction. The go karts are so much fun and the axe throwing is awesome! Would recommend for anyone

Review №35

Very friendly staff. They were helpful and accommodating. Lots of fun activities, go karts, bumper cars, video games, axe throwing. Great spot to have a little vacation fun.

Review №36

Family enjoyed it here. Prices are very reasonable. It is definetely worth the visit. Will visit again!

Review №37

The Go Karts are so much fun, the staff was really nice to us. You can ride around for such a good price. Would go and visit again

Review №38

We spent a wonderful afternoon there. Lots of fun activities. Staff were very friendly and helpful and explained to us how things work. Kids also had a great time at arcade. Would come back again!

Review №39

Don’t do VR. It’s not interactive. Costs $10 for the session. Would you pay $10 for a real roller coaster ride? The go carts are ok. The rest of this place was a let down. The girl at the front desk was more concerned about her rice than making sure we had a good experience.

Review №40

Dont even waste your time, only thing open was a little go cart track with little go carts

Review №41

This place is sweet, and quiet!! Riding a go kart by the ocean!!!

Review №42

I went it for axe throwing for 20 minutes with my friends and we had a blast! The operator was clear with his instructions and we learned really fast. Very relaxing environment and great staff.

Review №43

This is a great place for family and kids. Friendly staff, clean bathroom, different fun activities, and reasonably priced. Love the VR machine! $10 for two person rides. way cheaper than the same machine at the mall. Would definitely recommend to friends.

Review №44

Our kids did enjoy their Sunday afternoon here very much! I can really tell this is an interesting place for both kids and adults. The staff were very patient to give the instructions to make sure everyone was safe there. Well definitely come again!

Review №45

Its a fun place and the go karts work perfectly fine. Theres also a kid play place right outside the location and video games inside. The staffs were nice and acted professionally throughout our stay there.

Review №46

They are opened until 11 at night on weekends. Great place! Not too expensive.

Review №47

Great place to hang out with friends and family. There are various kinds of things kids to do. Go kart,had arcade games, sand digger and bumper car. My kids had a great time here. Will definitely come back again.

Review №48

They have enough karts for group of 12 to race together. Its super fun.

Review №49

We only tried the go kart yesterday, but we saw 2 kids having real fun on the virtual reality. Will have to try that the next time I come back.

Review №50

Good place to take kids for family day,, recommend the go carts & virpural reality game simulator

Review №51

Worth every dime. Reasonable, clean, helpful & a ton a fun. Highly recommend this little gem. My 11yo Daughter was serious when she said she could drive, me a but nervous(all she has drivin was a Golf cart) went along and man did she prove me wrong. The carts have great Harnesses, are literally tip/rollover proof and the track is well kept and safe as can possibly be. Will definitely be coming back again & again

Review №52

Very clean, friendly and great customer service

Review №53

Doesnt look like all that much, but once you get out on the track it is a lot of fun. They have alot of other things to do there as well. Lots of arcade games, axe throwing, and bumper cars. Great time!

Review №54

I would recommend this place for a birthday party for your kids. They have bumper carts and an arcade. The kids will love it

Review №55

Staff was excellent and kids had a blast!

Review №56

We visited for my dads birthday and loved it! The staff was friendly and patient with our daughters, who were trying everything for the first time. We drove go-karts and threw axes and all of us, from ages 11 to 73, had an amazing time.

Review №57

We purchased 15 min drive thinking it was for 15 minutes its actually 5 minute increments, once you ride you get off and get back to the very long line to ride again for however many minutes you purchased. Should make you aware when you buying several minutes. Other than that ok.

Review №58

Fun and nice. Track ultra small pricey but kids enjoyed.

Review №59

We travelled from China for vacations in Houston. Came to Galveston for some beach fun. Discovered this place. Totally loved it. Lots of fun activity and not too expensive compare to other activities on the island. Will definitly come back again.

Review №60

It is expensive, but we enjoyed ourselves. It was tough getting a cashier to stay at the counter. For Galveston, it was one of the more appropriate activities and or attractions for teens. Here, they were in control of the action, and not limited by a walking tour, or having the attraction run for them. It was an opportunity to compete, and that brought out a lot of laughter and chatter.

Review №61

This place is great, my family and I really enjoyed it. The staff is friendly and professional, nice place to have fun

Review №62

It was fun but, on the expensive side. Only the go carts were open so 3 stars for now

Review №63

Great fun. Super nice staff

Review №64

Reasonable pricing. We have been several times when visiting Galveston. We go for the Go Karts and add on Axe Throwing and the games.

Review №65

This place is AWESOME!! The staff was very friendly and helpful and it is such a Great Environment!! Go Karts, Bumper Cars, arcade games, virtual reality...the list goes on and on!! My Family cannot wait to go back!!

Review №66

Was raining and the track was closed, tried the VR and its pretty fun. Will come back to try the other stuff

Review №67

I really enjoyed the go karts with my friends, really great place to hang out

Review №68

The man said no bumping. Lil Dale The Intimidator behind me kept banging into me so I started blocking him from going around. Id get going then slow up a bit to where had try to go around then squeeze him into the rails. Great place to be a kid.

Review №69

Had a great time here today. Staff was great we had a large crew of 22 and they were very patient and caring. We had a great after noon of fun. We will return again for sure.

Review №70

Not every thing was in working order but it was lots of fun and the staff is super nice.

Review №71

Love the place. Karting is awesome a 5/5 here but their new axe throwing activity is so fun. Absolute stress reliever

Review №72

This place is a little off the road, but is family friendly and a blast for all. Restrooms were clean and when we had an issue with a game they were quick to help. Plus they have ax throwing!

Review №73

Exalant staff and great family members to join and have fun and that put more stuff to do bumper cars. Axe throwing and kids can get on small excavators to get on in a dirt pit awesome place to go for hole entire family

Review №74

Funplex has been adding new more rides and games recently. Neat place to check out

Review №75

Came with my friends and we all enjoyed the go karts, theyre really fast and fun

Review №76

Super fun time with friends. We participated in all the activities including go-karting, axe throwing, bumper cars, excavations and ATV rides. Highly recommend for a good time in Galveston along with family and friends

Review №77

We were visiting Galveston last week from California. We had so much fun at this Go Kart place! Go-karts were affordable, priced at $17 for two rides. Not the newest model, but the riding experience was awesome. The facility was clean, especially the restroom! All the staffs were friendly and patient. Highly recommended for families! Well definitely come back again next year.

Review №78

Half of the game machines are either broken or down or the two player games have only one console working. There is a pool table in the corner of the room with walls 2 feet away from table, brilliant idea! Go karts and bumper cars have nothing like what you see from their website, also overpriced for go kartz. Well this is the only place on the you dont get to choose

Review №79

Good staff and clean.

Review №80

I went in with my husband and we had a lot of fun on the go karts

Review №81

Tiny place... go-karts were fun, axe throwing nothing special...bumper cars are child-sized, arcade is tiny and out dated...nice employees...much better looking online...

Review №82

Throwing axes was really fun for 20 minutes. Go karts was really fun too, it was a bit pricey but it was worth it.

Review №83

Go karts were fun and my kids really enjoyed themselves, especially on the bumper cars. We plan to come back soon again

Review №84

Good place for go karts for your kid 3-12 years old. But if you are looking to come here whit your adult friends and have some racing then forget about it. Place is overall dated and dirty.

Review №85

Really fun!

Review №86

Best time ever!!

Review №87

Had a great time here, the kids had a blast. Some very nice employees. We all around loved the place.

Review №88

Best place for go karts. Friends staff. Good location

Review №89

Looks abandoned when you drive up and nothing was open except the small arcade. Their website does not portray this place accurately

Review №90

We had our sons birthday party here and it was terrific! They are very accommodateing and friendly. This was a really good value for the amount of fun we all had! Plenty of arcade games, air hockey, go-carts and snacks! We had kids from ages 3-10 and they had games for everyone. The double go carts were perfect to take the little kids for rides. Fast clean cars and they ran great! Rain or shine this is a terrific place to take the family!

Review №91

Virtual reality was fun. My grandma had the rollercoaster for the first time in her life and shes asking for more like a kiD

Review №92

Place is very run down, most of the attractions (excavators, bumper cars, and axe throwing) were unavailable and the arcade games were all very outdated and worn. Didn’t bother with the go karts because they looked clapped out. And unless you love your kids getting stung by yellow jackets do t have your party here.

Review №93

We had alot of fun. We spent just under $200 for the arcades, vr, gokarts,etc. We did nearly all the activities. This place is near the seawall which also is a nice view to enjoy along the way. Other than that the staff were very friendly and very helpful.

Review №94

Very happy place and friendly staff. Had so much fun

Review №95

Great time for the whole family. The kids loved the go carts

Review №96

Great place! My kids had so much fun with the go carts. Very affordable.

Review №97

Pretty cool place foe the young and old. Weve been there each time weve been to Galveston and we are surprised we dont see it as busy but selfishly we love it as we feel that we have the entire place to ourself. This place is one of the better go kart tracks.

Review №98

Awesome place. Had a great time with the family. The track is very challenging. Not very expensive and a great way to waste some time.

Review №99

Go carts could have been a little faster. The games could be updated but other than that very nice people

Review №100

Hope in the wall place. The lady at the counter where you purchase go cart tickets is rude and wants to argue with you because she couldnt explain their policy properly. Some of the games took tokens without doing anything. Couldnt get a hold of anyone to get tokens refunded. Only reason it doesnt get 1 star is because the go carts were fun
