Go FAST at K1 Speed, Myrtle Beach’s new indoor go-kart track

You don’t have to be the most talented racer ever to have a good time at K1 Speed. Check it out. Here are five questions to ask about this new attraction.

What’s at K1 Speed?

Tons of fun. Take a ride on a challenging indoor track in adult and junior electric karts. Visit the Paddock Lounge Cafe for food and drinks, and get your game on in the arcade. There are video games, pool tables, and more there. K1 Speed also features a meeting room with audio/video connections.

What’s so special about K1 Speed?

You can race every day of the year, no matter what the weather. You can escape the summer heat now or the winter chill in the offseason by rolling to this track. Karts are 100% electric, not the lawnmower power you dealt with when you were young. They’re high-performance machines!

Best of all: There’s no reservation required. Arrive and drive.

Can I bring a group to K1 Speed?

Definitely! The entire experience can be unforgettable in a world-class facility like this. Race family, friends, co-workers, and more. Contact the track and ask for an event planner. You’ll need eight guests to qualify.

Tell us a little more about these awesome karts

They’re 20 horsepower engines that can reach 45 mph (for the adult karts). Junior karts have a max of about 20 mph. You must be 48 inches tall — or 4 feet — to race junior karts. For adult carts, you must be 58 inches tall — or 4 feet, 10 inches — tall to ride. The staff will measure the drivers will on the spot.

These are the fastest karts in the industry!

Does K1 Speed ever run promos?

All the time. Check them out online. Many of them center on holidays, but there are also events such as the Challenge and Teen Cup. There’s a Drift Night and Wings Wednesday. K1 Speed offers discounts for first responders and the military. Ask about Happy Hour, Monday through Thursday.
