Do you have the need, the need for speed? Unleash your inner speed demon at  K1-Speed, a  family-friendly indoor go-kart racing and entertainment venue in Irvine. 

How it works: K1 Speed is open 7 days a week (visit website for hours) and their Arrive and Drive experience allows racers to race on a first-come, first-serve basis. The venue is sometimes booked for private events so it is always best to call ahead and get an idea how long the wait might be. Races are broken up into two categories: Junior and Adult. Junior races are designed for kids who are between 48' and 57". Adult races are for those 58" and above.  Each session has a maximum of 12 drivers and lasts about 10 minutes. With each race, racers receive a Race Result Sheet which allows you to compare your time and rank against other drivers, including your friends and family!

Paddock Lounge

Waits are typical on busy weekends and holidays. Luckily, K1's new Paddock Lounge is the perfect spot to hang out while you wait. This eatery serves up salads, pizzas, wings and more  along with a nice selection of beer and wine. I can personally recommend the buffalo chicken wings and the pepperoni flatbread. The atmosphere is cozy and within view of the track. I loved that I could watch my kids whiz around the track while I enjoyed a glass of wine. There is a private room in the back of the lounge which is perfect for parties.
