At a Glance

What is it?

An indoor go-kart track using electric vehicles.

Where is it?

Just west of The Strip off of Flamingo Rd.

Is it worth the cost?

It’s not cheap but it is a lot of fun.

What else do I need to know?

The helmets you are required to wear are snug and the carts themselves are small. Claustrophobics or really big people need not apply.

What’s the bottom line?

I feel the need… the need for speed!

Full Review

Going fast is not always the best strategy at Pole Position Raceway, an indoor go-kart facility near The Strip. Getting the fastest lap time and/or beating the other racers to the finish line requires a bit more finesse than just tromping on the accelerator and staying off the wall. You need to know when to brake, when to turn, when to lift off the pedal just enough so that you can get into the back stretch with the maximum amount of speed.

Or you could say “to heck with all of that” and just go fast.

Pole Position Raceway is an indoor, air-conditioned facility that has electric vehicles but don’t worry about a lack of power. We’re not talking a Nissan Leaf vs. a Ferrari here. The electric karts go plenty fast and you get the added bonus of not risking hearing loss while you race.

In addition to the track there is also a virtual reality game arcade, a gift shop, and more to keep you entertained between laps.
