REVIEWS OF R1 Indoor Karting IN Rhode Island

Jessica Lopes

A must! Great staff, friendly and clean. Track is unbelievable. Food and drinks delicious. Bowling alley, pool table and dart board. Something for everyone.

Evelyn Ranone

Fun family place.


I waited 1 hour for chicken wings, it's unbelievable!

John Paon

I crashed into the last wall curve at the end of the track sideways the guys come running over to make sure I was okay. They thought I was done no way man I still had two more races. My neck cracked in about 30 spots. It was awesome definitely be back. Did a total of four. Best time was 36.250 seconds. Yeah mon!

Luis Brito

My first time here! Super fun, friendly staff, very easy to get started and you'll be on the track in no time!

Theo Paroulidis

R1 is a great place to go and have some fun racing a very fast electric kart, with no gas smells or smoke. Super clean track and very long. Theres a great bar and food, plus pool, axe throwing and more.They even have a 6 year old and up kart racing.

Elisete Pina

We had a blast, we went between 3~6 pm which was just perfect. Not too many people. The cashier was very pleasant and welcoming. We will be going back real soon

Cindy Smith

Love coming to the facility. It's fun, entertaining, and a great way for me and my adult son to spend father/son time. It's a great bonding time for us and an adrenaline rush for everyone on the track. Planning on bringing my 8 year old to the youth track soon too. Entertainment for the whole family.

Lori Lawrence

It seems like a happening place. Unfortunately we werent able to enjoy the track for it being a 2.5 hour wait. The menu had a good choices of grill foods, but when you order medium to well on burgers.. It came out more medium to rare! Bun was soggy from over flow of burger juice.... Had to send back at request.

christian a

This is a great place for a party with friends and kids! But, it costs about 25$ per person (sadly) but its worth the price! This place is the best of the best! They even have bowling!

Ross McLendon

Great place for an outing with friends. The carts are fast and a lot of fun to drive. The bar/restaurant has a nice vibe as well. When we went, the lockers were non-functional (they went out of their way to help me find a place for my bag but I was a little concerned about it not being locked up). Hopefully that gets worked out quickly.

Mark Scaplen Jr

We had a great time there on Saturday night racing with family and friends. The facility is beautiful and the performance and quality of the carts are top notch. Staff was very attentive yet a little scattered at times which is understandable given the nature of Having to organize and adjust races and racers as some people don’t show up on time. Safety was also a priority to track associates which made me feel safe.

Corey LaFlamme

If you like to go fast and have some thrills, this is the place to go. Pricing is reasonable and the entire operation is high voltage. No walking out smelling like a gas can! They offer adult and junior racing. The adult class goes the fastest and the junior class is a more modest speed. Fun to be had for young and older alike!

Jodie P

Great place, lots of fun, definitely recommend going. Can't wait to go again for sure. Bring a group for more fun

Crist Angelica

Great plan for wekends! some drivers who obviously are regular customers, are not kind to new drivers and they can be a bit agressive though.

Joe Chasse

Amazing experience. Staff was friendly and courteous. I would have given 5 stars if they offered food during the afternoon.

Stangv Drum

Great time! Way better than other kart racing places. Very laid back and professional. If you go you will get hooked!

Kenneth Hoffa

Loved this place great drinks and food Greta fun for kids and adults. Huge track. Huge bar great food and service is awesome. Highly recommend and affordable.

Hunter Monte

It was fun but felt it was a bit overpriced. $20 to go around 7 times seemed kind of steep for a pretty basic track. We chose this because it was indoors and it was raining. It cost is $300 for 5 people to do three races. These are go karts! Some were good and others were not. The first cart had the hardest steering and the second one was easy. Same with the speed. The place was clean, staff was nice. Only three lanes to bowl and they had a party coming in so we couldn’t bowl. Went on a Wednesday and Ax throwing was closed.

Alan Plant

Thanks it was fun racing against the you guys. That I beat... LoL

Anthony Bryson

Super fun!! Definitely had a blast

Lil' Miss Sunshine

I went to R1 my first time with my bestfriend and let me tell you what it was an experience. R1 is more than just a racing place they also have other things in the building I went bowling there and it was so fun


So much fun. Expensive but i totally understand why.. Great for kids and adults

Kyle Kuney

Great place for parties

Andrew Pelletier

An amazing place for some fast fun! The go cart track is nice with various types of turns and the food there is great as well. And the is pool and 4lanes of bowling for cheap money, too!

matthew small

Best first date! Will definitely be coming back for more.

Joe Gallo

I have not raced an electric car for a few years, but it is always a blast! Went here with my 5 buds and everyone had a great time and hit up the bar afterwards.

Simon Cousins

Good experience but a few things to note... 1. using the sign-in machines showed previous people's phone numbers and personal information. An uncomfortable data exposure. Would recommend using the mobile app instead to avoid this issue. 2. Super fun driving experience but it is rough on the body. I had a lot of neck and back pain for several days after the event. This is certainly to be expected as the nature of the event. 3. Almost no food variations available due to the location being so quiet resulting in server and kitchen staff being minimal. Food was enjoyable though. Biggest plus of the place is the super friendly and helpful staff. 5/5 for that. Overall a VERY fun experience but expect some soreness a few days after.

Jesse James

Super fun! Easy going staff. Great indoor track and silent electric cars. A tad pricey but worth the fun. They zip around pretty quick. As fast as you need for the track. Any quicker and it would get dangerous.

Jason Rappa

Absolutely awesome. Had a blast. Much more there than you think. Food menu could use an upgrade but other than that perfect.

Lori Regli

Nice place, everytime i come out to RI my grandson loves going to ride the carts.

Logan Black

Super fun! Would go again for sure! Love the electric cars.

Spencer Haines

Great place, good food, good fun.

Jake Jenkins

Great race track, great karts. 10/10

Josh DonDero

The food is mediocre at best, but not particularly bad. The staff is super friendly, the amenities are very nice, and the activities are great.

Brian V Grant

Biggest indoor track i have seen. Perfect for group events

Franck Vultao

Loved it great food great staff Beautiful place

Abigael Balbuena

Good fun. Track is compact but has an elevation change to spice things up. Electric karts mean no fumes in indoor facility. Staff friendly and Karts in ok condition, but some group users can be a tad too "competition oriented" for slower newcomers and will bump you (which I guess is part of the deal in a track...). Wait times short and the performance level is well suited for most people. Good place to have someone learn how to apex properly.

Armand Roma

Awesome go-karting experience. The staff is friendly. They show urgency to any incidents/problems that occur. Also the spread of the bars, pool tables, and the sitting booths are strategically placed, so you can soak in all of the action that's going on.

David Fortin

My son and I had a blast..!! It was his first time driving kart and we will definitely be back very soon.. Finally something to do in the winter months.. Even tho it is still under construction, when everything is finished it will be amazing there. You can see it already..

Ryan Ross

Had an awesome time at R1 Indoor Karting last night. First time experience. Not gonna lie I was a bit nervous about the karting but everything was fine!! So much fun! Also did the axe bar and fuel restaurant. Axe throwing very different and very enjoyable, definitely something different to do. The only thing I would critique would be the prices of the activities but hey every business has to make a living right?! If you’re looking for a new fun and different activity to do in RI I highly recommend the Indoor Karting and Axe Bar at R1 Indoor Karting!!

Josh Lima

Really fun place to go grab some food and drinks with friends then just have a ball Go-karting and getting in some Axe Throwing. The food is good to, I've never had disappointing meal there. The staff is super friendly. Been there a few times for company events, they've got a dedicated event area with some bowling alleys, pool tables and darts. If you're in the area and looking for a fun night out with friends I'd really recommend checking them out.

Maria Rees

A lot of fun and good food!

Amari Whigham

Great place for the family. My mom took us and we had lots of fun.

Mike Boisvert

Axe bar and go karting we're awesome!

Johnny Paulhus

I had fun, but the passing rules in the intro video are confusing. Can you only pass when the blue flag is up? I never saw a blue flag . . . or any flag for that matter. The axe throwing room should change their targets more frequently. It might be more cost-effective for them to use panels instead of stump slices.

Ray Pezzullo

R1 helped us host a 10th birthday party for my son. What a terrific job they did! Gilbert was an amazing host, he took very good care of my family and our guests. All of the employees were very polite, respectful, and helpful. I will definitely be returning so my wife and I can have a turn riding without the kids!! Highly recommend!

Shad Mahlum

Went for a bachelor party. We all had a great experience! Our race host Sierra, did an amazing job at keeping us where we needed to be and our host Tekila took care of everything. The bartender was excellent! Thanks to all three of them.

Tommy Sheppard

Came at 9:30, 30 minutes before closing and the lady told us we can race. We watched the video then signed up then the lady rudely told us we couldn’t race after wasting 15 minutes of my time. Let 4 other people who arrived at the same time race before us. Horrible service here, would recommend new workers.

Lisa Romero

Friendly, Informative, attentive staff. The menu was unique and full of flavorful items with some old classics. The meatballs were fresh, & moist. The bacon wrapped fig and chorizo w goat cheese was mouth watering. And the Go Karting was a BLAST!!

Rui Pereira

Great time for adults and kids plus food bar and upstairs pool tables

Tanika Cinelli

Nice place for the kids and a nice hang out up stairs for the adults as well.

Ayanna Hampton

Do I really need to explain? Lol The track really tests your driving skills. The carts only go so fast, max speed is 40 mph which you don't necessarily get the chance to reach, and carts do not have power steering so work those muscles! In this location there is also a bowling alley, a few billiards tables as well as darts (party room).

Julie R.

My 6 year old son loved it! He had a blast driving around the course. The employees were friendly and attentive. Facility was very clean and the employees genuinely enjoyed being there so it put everyone else in a better mood since it's a place where everyone wants to be in. I overheard that they were getting a double kart! Can't wait for my husband to take our 4 year old with him!!

Annamarie Tush

So much fun! Such an great experience. Each race is about 7 laps on the track, well worth it!

Joseph Zahner Jr

Great time for a group event, ask for Tyler. He was our party planner and did a great job.

Jose Perdomo

Nice family time!

Josh Singer

R1 is a fun night out if you need a new, fresh weekend activity with some friends. The karts are fun. However... -The price point is simply too high for the quick amount of time on the track. -The place is very disorganized and the employees are not very helpful. -Employees we’re not able to produce a copy of the waiver everyone is required to sign electronically, which presumably acknowledges serious risks associated with the activity. -A few races before ours, we witnessed a young female severely bleeding from the face and taken out on a stretcher as a result of some poor driving by a person who was ultimately not removed from the track. Her helmet flew off when she was t boned. Safety didn’t seemed to be as much of a priority as it should be. - The restaurant was mediocre and overpriced. Service was unimpressive for a place that wasn’t exactly packed on a Friday night. R1 has some potential, it’s a cool place with a fun product. But in its current state, management needs to realize it has some work to do if it wants repeat customers who love their experience and tell other people about it.

Jocelyn Leigh Arn

My team and I hosted our Annual Company outing there on 7/26/19 for a group of about 50. This was different for us from previous years so we were nervous about the change on venue location. Angie was excellent, always there to answer questions, provide suggestions, & any support. Peiter, the tech person, also phenomenal as well as all bartenders & team leaders. They allowed us to sign waivers before the day of the event for each person who either did karting or axe throwing which kept the flow of the event moving. Also, the food was amazing!!!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for assisting with the success of the event, oh and also keeping the music upbeat! Hoping to be back again next year!! GREAT VENUE!!!!

Ryan Karvelas

What an excellent experience i had with my kids today. Chelsea out waitress was amazing she gave us the bowling alley free and brought out food over and set us all up! Then the food was excellent! The go karts were amazing my son had a blast the whome crew was awesome too us and all the other patrons were very friendly. After that we went next door to end the day with video games and pizza what a fun time and great place and complex! Definitely will be going back!

chris d

Really awesome place. Go karting, axe throwing, bar and restaurante all in one! Perfect night out for those looking to step up their night life game!

Nancy Moline

Different. Came for a drink. Looking forward to bringing friends to watch them race. Track looks like a lot of fun. Didn't know that they have bowling and pool. Ultimate sports bar!!

Shirley Zab


Gabriel Simoes

Really good and really fun

Dawn Marie Pari

Awesome place. Wish they had more employees to be available to greet and explain things to first time visitors.


Do not go here very rude an disrespectful management. Plus electrical issues with cars my car died a quarter way threw the lap I asked to get another chance at putting down my lap time anbi was told it's not there fault the car died an the battery was not charged fully.never ever will I go here again after spending 70$ not worth it at all

William Cea

Nice clean place. Lots to do. Always busy.

chaithra premkumar

It's an eventful place to hangout with a bunch of friends... the cost of the activities and food is really cheap... I just loved this place ... will be my frequent hangout place going forward

Paula Allin

Very Fun!

Kamrin Johnson

Great atmosphere for sure. The karts were fast and signing up was a breeze. The staff is very welcoming and the restaurant up stairs makes out for a perfect date. The music playing was mainly classic rock in the dining area and hip hop/rap in the racing area. I definitely enjoyed my time and would recommend R1 Karting to families and couples alike.

Steve Polucha

Went here for a bachelor party in April 2018 and had a blast. Staff took care of us and our needs and were prepared to handle a large group. Worth it to sign up ahead of time and avoid the registration wait. If we had planned better we could have made a whole night here as they have a full bar, menu, and bowling alley along with the racing. Will definitely come back!

Eric Benson

I had a great time karting. The staff was very polite and helpful, the track was really fun. I would definitely recommend giving R1 a try for indoor karting.

Corey Manley

Good family fun but expensive and busy on weekends

Nick Evans

I've now been 3 different times. Each time was a blast. Definitely more fun when karting with a larger group of friends

Evan Petrarca

Several of my friends and I came to R1 for some drinks and Go Karting. We were all having a great time upstairs at the bar area. However the Go Kart experience was less much less satisfying. Another group rode with my group during our race. This other group of 5 DID NOT know how to drive responsibly on the karts. They constantly hit my girlfriend's kart around corners. Also at the very end when they flag you down to stop and exit, an extremely rude individual from the other group drove near full speed into the rear end of my girlfriends kart. She had to go to the hospital to treat a minor concussion. We are not happy with our experience at all. The staff saw this incident as well, and nothing was said to him except "You must use your brakes". We will not be returning. This sucks because besides this event we had a good time. Not happy

Roxi Booth

Even though this place was amazing I thought it was a little pricy, but maybe that’s how it is everywhere, this was my first time. I loved the bar that was upstairs and the track is super cool

Ronald Burns

Can't wait to do it again

Frederic Rounds

Was Very Fun, Great Staff...Good Food..

kyle duquesnay

R1 is a great experience! The karts are fast while the track is even faster! With the new addition of fuel restaurant you can hang out and make a day of it. They also have a bowling alley and billiards! Check it out if you feel the need for speed, or enjoy food and drinks while overlooking the track!

Martin Jones

Very great experience. Very fast cars. Nice venue for pretty much any event.

Peter L

This place is hit or miss. I have yet to run a complete race without them slowing us down to 3mph at least 5 times. I understand they're trying to keep people safe but sometimes it's just ridiculous. Overall, it's a nice place though

Carn Doe

58$ for me and my 6 year old son to go around the track for 10 minutes BLOW ME big time rip off ..waiting for my steak and seafood dinner in the mail way too overpriced ..employees were cool and helpful but yall are robbing people

Christina Nacci

Awesome place!! It can get expensive quickly though, especially if you want to try everything.... which you will, because it's awesome.

Madisyn Paige

R1 was really fun. It was just a bit pricey for the literal 5 minute race.

Bill J

CAREFUL ABOUT WHAT THEY CHARGE YOU! Came here with a large group. 3 races = $60 The adult "licenses" for mobile were $7 and $10 for card. When it was my turn to register to pay they did not tell me which option of license to buy. So they charged me $10 for card. When I looked at my receipt the license fee was waived because we were a group. I ended up paying $80.25. Could have been 60 plus tax. Sorry, not coming back here again. Boycotting this place...nothing was "free" or "waived for group.LIES! NO REFUNDS AS WELL SO CUSTOMERS LOSE! Oh and don't sign into facebook when registering. Other than that, go kart was fun..just not the pricing.

John Becker

Loads of fun! The track is mostly nice and smooth and the carts do 25, 35, and 45 mph

Reny Mencia

Had a great time today. I was invited here for a Birthday party, both Go Karting and Axe Throwing events were awesome. Our host Tyler, was great at explaining the rules and making sure we (9 of us) were taking care of. Tyler made sure to go over all the rules, brought us drinks, gave us time updates(for Axe throwing) and took pictures.


Expensive but so much fun!

Doug Le Do

Had my first experience at R1 last weekend for an office party event. It was a great experience. The venue, food, and racing was fantastic!!! The event staff and service were responsive and polite. I have been to another indoor kart racing centers in the past and R1 blows it away. Would recommend it to all ages. Can’t wait to get back there. Update: My second visit with a large party. Had a great time racing and food buffet for a corporate event couple of weeks prior so decided to book an event for my sons 18th Birthday party. His friend had a great time racing. The staff were responsive and courteous. BTW food was great too. Have to try the terrific pizzas!!

Jaidev Dalvi

The axe bar at this place is good! The staff is really good and accommodating!

Jacob Phaneuf

Extremely Fun but kinda expensive. They do have cheap darts, pool and bowling


My first time ever going there and it was so much fun! A bit pricey though ($60 for 2 people, 1 race)...but it was worth it. We had a great time. The employees are a lot of fun and super nice. Place is very clean. Will definitely be going again soon!!

Joe Kaplan

This is a great place to have a fun afternoon. The cars go superfast, and the track is a lot of fun. The price may seem high at first, but you will have wished you bought a second race after you finish. The only reason R1 gets four stars instead of five is because of price.

Randi Knight

pricey but really fun! for 3 ppl, 2 adults and a 7yr old it was over $93.

Nariq Richardson

The reason why I loved this place is because it was fun. I took my girlfriend here and we had lots of fun. Despite the fact I won the race and got a record lap breaking score. I was drifting each corners like it was a movie. This would be a great place to take your significant other or to even settle a bet. "Let's take it to the tracks!!!!" If you are thinking about coming here don't think twice. There is a gym as well as a restaurant thing upstairs.. it is great!!!

Ryan Heelan

Awesome time. The axe bar is worth checking out while you're there. I recommend a reservation for that but not necessary for the karts

Rebekah Acevedo Vine

Great family fun spot. Wait was a bit longer but there is plenty to do. Bowling, billiards or you can grab a bite at their restaurant. Food was good, nice bar.

Jeff Z

Went to a friend's 30th bday. Our party host was Sierra. She was great. No complaints at all

Michael Mazzatto

My sons and I had a great time, definitely fun for the whole family.

Tarell Cosores

I had a hell of time food is super good.

Imperial Auto Solutions

Fun, and rewarding. Great staff, and quality karts.

John Ruggiero

Very cool for both adults and kids. A little pricey. Bring your wallet.

Nathan Jackson Sr.

Definitely having fun there. I need my brothers coming along with me but sadly they ain’t in dis state. I need new friends as brothers to join with me!! Definitely coming back here!!

Sam Blake Jr

From day one, (being third in line actually) I am loving racing here. No obnoxious noise or fumes, and faster? Winning! Electric cars and solar powered! Yes! Improved to the 31 second lap times! Getting faster every visit! Gotta go check out the restaurant next visit.

Jenay Lindsey

I got food up at the restaurant, a ceasar salad and fried pickles, which were both tastey. And then my friend and i went down to throw axes. You read that right. Throw axes. The axe throwing is pricey. But it is legitimately fun, and a really unique experience. People looking for something new to do might enjoy this unusual passtime. I didnt do any go-karting but the track looked pretty cool, and you can watch the people on the track from the restaurant which sits above it in a windowed section.

Yamilex Salcedo

Great experience. The track is really good, you don’t have to worry about sliding into the wall or anything. The speed is great, it randomly catches really fast speed and it gets your adrenaline running! GoKarts are super comfortable, especially for tall people, gas & brake pedals are adjustable which is great. And safety is great as well, helmets, and neck brace! Great all around. Plus the bar above!

Myles B

If you're looking for a good adrenaline rush this is the police for you. Even if you don't want to go ridiculously fast they have sessions with a carts go slower and they also have carts for smaller kids as well so this is a great family event day. They're restaurant above the track was not open when I was there. As of now the restaurant is open so does a great date night too or spend time with the family grab some dinner or lunch and then hit the track

Franz xavier

Fun track. Good beer at bar and food.

Joseph Fitman

I've been to R1 karting 4 times, and loved it every time! Karts are electric, have instant torque, and are really fun to drive! Good family place as well, they've got bowling and a sports bar. It's a good place to bring people that are advanced racers, as well as those that may not be the best. Races are 20$ a person so not too bad. Wait time usually isn't too bad, but sometimes it can be an hour or so.

Abhishek Kadam

Superb experience and friendly staff. They have electric karts not that smelly gasoline karts that make loud sound. Worth a try

Scott Davidson

GREAT STAFF, CLEAN AND RUN VERY WELL. Nachos were food and drinks were made very good will an attentive bar staff. Go karts were super fun and seemed safe and well maintained. I would definitely recommend and I will return again!

Shelby A

I went a month or two ago. It was my first time going to a indoor karting place. It was busy, but heat times were not too long of a wait. They offer a big track, heats for younger kids, heats for adults/teens, a big restaurant and bar. They offer pool, and another two events to do I believe (didn’t participate in other things they have to offer. Good was very good and the bar was great with drinks! Bartenders were wonderful. Cons: during the heats, we were often stopped due to collisions or congestion of racers. I did 3 heats that day I went and the first heat had no issues, but with the last two, I was getting hit as if it was bumper cars, the staff had to keep stopping the heats during the race, understandably for safety, but it was annoying how often it happened. Perhaps they didn’t space out the racers enough or they sent too many racers out in heats. Which I get it helps having more racers so the heats are too long of waits, but it caused some frustration.

gary steffens

3 heats perfect, my son and i had a blast A week for me to recover(56yrs old) ha!

Corbin B.

This was an awesome electric go-kart track for adults and kids! Friendly and knowledgeable staff, and a really fun indoor track with a bridge and a banked turn! Did not try the food but we asked a couple of tables how the food was, they said it was good but a bit pricey. We were planning on eating at home tonight anyway though... Had we not planned on that, we would have definitely stayed to try the food because it looked and smelled sooo good. I'd love to eat there next time. Something I'd like to try next time as well is axe throwing, which is a new addition to R1.

Sylvester Cyler

Great place to go to have lots of fun

Jim Lafleur

This place is nuts not only is it really hard to use the computers especially when you have kids with you there is absolutely no help when you ask for help you get looked at with devil eyes how dare you ask I brought six kids with me we had lunch we blew over $500 great place has a lot to offer but manager needs to get their employees straight they don't want to be bothered they know better than everybody and there are absolutely no help when you rely on computers to complete your business you better have a help center or a help desk

Amara Devine

My 2 friends and I arrived at this place at 9:30 wanting to have a fun night go karting. After getting up to the front desk the red headed worker told u to watch the safety video then sign in, after watching a 15 minute video we signed and and after we signed in she told us we couldn’t race because a group of boys who showed up at the same time as us took the last spots to race. I don’t understand why she told us to watch the video then to sign in when we did it all for nothing but to her to tell us we couldn’t race. This place has rude workers and do not suggest coming to this place :))

Peter Bellisle

A whole lot of fun, a little on the pricier side of things when you consider what you pay for a 7 minute race. However, the track is in awesome condition and the electric carts get great speed. Also, the staff is actually attentive and competent.


Track is nice, but the staff on track isn't particularly attentive. Moreover who actually buys into this if you can hit a certain lap we'll turn up the karts. Why not have them turned up all the way, then turn them down if someone shows an inability to drive. Overall there are better e-karting locations in New England.


One of the best go carting places I have been too. Electric cars and go up to 35 mph - if you qualify under a certain lap speed, they can go up to 45 mph. Private rooms were pretty awesome - they had pool tables and bowling alleys in one of them. They had ax throwing and the course for the race cars was alot of fun. Lots of quick turns and hills that those cars handle very well. Looking forward to coming back.


they take the whole thing VERY seriously.

Robert Zuckerman

A lot of fun to bad for what you pay seems to short on fun time wise

Jeff Brown

Great cars, nice and sticky track, staff was very helpful. Great experience! **UPDATE** January 2018...I’ve been back several times and the cars are starting to already show their age...big differences in performance and speed. NEED TO KEEP CARS CONSISTENT WITH EACH OTHER!!!

Mark Beznos

Was a lot of fun. The karts were maintained, but the strange brake position and tough steering made it a challenge.

Kyle Beltran

Went on Thursday and met some local friends I haven't seen. Great time at this well organized place. We'll be back but pricing could be a little better but I guess you get what you pay for and it was worth it.

Chris Johnson

I always bring my friends down here to do some heat racing. We qualify for speed 4 which helps make the karts at their highest level. It is a fun course and they have a full restaurant upstairs that overlooks the course.

Sarah Lee Quimby

The go-karts are cool, bowling and pool tables are nice as well. Restaurant, however, was lackluster. Quality of food for the price was poor, as was the service. Waitress was inattentive and had little knowledge of the menu items. Also, they were out of a lot of things from the menu? The overall impression is that the place is visually appealing, but lacks any soul. The employees all seemed more interested in each other and their private conversations than paying attention to the customers. Though the concept is good, and the go-karts and bowling are fun, I would not go back and would not recommend it to anybody else.


The video that they have you watch before riding the carts, states that they provide lockers for your personal items, but when I asked for one, I was told that the lockers weren't working, and that I could leave my purse behind the counter!!! Really??!! I'm going to leave my purse with a complete stranger??!! I don't think they even have lockers!!! A sticker didn't print out after watching the video, as it was suppose to. I was told that wasn't working either!!! You're given all this info about the flag colors, and what each means when waved, but not one flag was ever waved, to control the flow, during any of my 3 rides!!! The staff was too busy eating and socializing to care what was going on, on the track. On top of it all, they force you into a 1 year membership in order to ride the carts!! Very poorly run!!! Do not recommend!!!

Lynne Beaudry

My son received a gift certificate to go to R1 for Christmas and couldn't wait to go. They did not disappoint! The wait time was reasonable for a Sunday evening. Grabbed some food when we finished. Ok food though they were short staffed so took longer than anticipated for service.

Friedrick Wolfgang

The place is so nice. Get that adrenaline going

Jeff Davis

Great food.. Geat service.

Russell Chiulli

Very expensive. Karts are electric and seem to charge at different rates meaning the kart speeds are inconsistent. Sucks for when you are racing against your friends.

A few weeks back, I hosted an 80 + person event at R1 in Lincoln. My group had an EXCELLENT time and really enjoyed that they had so many options from gokarting to bowling to playing pool, or just enjoying the bar service and food. The staff went out of their way to ensure we had a great time and I was grateful for their commitment to our group. I recommend R1 in Lincoln to anyone considering hosting a large group there.

Awesome!!!!!! Had the pizza which is cooked over fire in a huge pizza oven and it was great! The go carts are fast for electric! It's a little expensive and wish you had more time on the track for the money spent but it was fun!!

Bought a 3 race voucher for my father to go racing together for his birthday gift. Went this past Saturday and had a blast! Awesome track setup, great karts, good quality and clean helmets, and the staff were all well organized and friendly. Highly recommended, it was a blast!! They have a seperately kids track and the kids were going wild cheering, it was pretty funny, they looked like they were having a good time. We had been to F1 Boston before and after we left when we were talking we both felt it was clearly better than F1 Boston when it came to the track and karts. The renderings of the sports bar look awesome and will really add a lot to the place, excited to visit when it is finished. As a Rhode Islander this is a great location and easy to get to. We will certainly be back!

Great food. Long time for Food. But Great Service.

Fun experience. The karts have no power steering so be prepared.

The wait time really killed and the price was the weapon used to kill it. But other than that the experience was excellent! 9/10 will definitely visit again.

The Axe Bar was awesome. Staff was friendly and helpful. Training was thorough and the person that helped us learn the proper throwing was a joy and stuck with us the whole time. Karting was fun as well. I did not participate in this but the group I was with said it was a blast. Would definitely recommend going as a date night or with friends.

I love racing here the axe bar is pretty cool too.
