A Thrilling Course Designed for Speed

Designed by former karting world champion David Terrien, HyperDrive’s  Indoor Go-Kart sprawling 3-level course dares you to push the limits at up to 50km/h across its 308-meter straightaways and 14 exhilarating corners.

Gear Up and Unleash Your Inner Racer

Each 8-minute session kicks off with a thorough safety briefing covering driving basics, gear, and the track’s unique features. The entire process takes around 30 minutes, ensuring you’re well-prepared for your karting adventure. Once briefed, racers suit up with helmets and race suits (or rent covered shoes) before unleashing their inner Schumacher.
