Located just outside of Queensferry in North East Wales, The Circuit is one of the largest indoor go-karting circuits in the UK and features two tracks in one location. Often referred to as the finest go-karting experience in the North West, The Circuit is an ideal place to take the kids on a rainy day. Alternatively, it’s a great place to enjoy a team building exercise or celebrate a big birthday with friends.

The Circuit offers a variety of karting events from ‘arrive and drive’ sessions to full Grand Prix races. There are two indoor tracks on site – the main track and also the newly refurbished Indy Flyover track.

Along the main circuit you’ll race through banked corners, tunnels and outdoor sections that link up with the indoor track, as well as Thunder Road which was extended in 2008. The award-winning track is 250m long with two fast 125m straights and a banked hairpin corner.

The Circuit owns a fleet of 70 karts built by leading UK manufacturer Biz Karts and feature lightweight racing chassis and responsive Honda engines.

Cadet karts are also available for younger racers, but keep in mind that all drivers must be aged 8 or over and be more than 1.25m tall.
