Safety Is Our Top Priority
At Sonny’s, we make sure that your Go Kart experience is as safe as possible. Our karts have all of the safety features you need to keep you securely in your seat during your ride.
Head rests and seat belts hold you firmly in place. 360-degree bumpers ensure that a run-in with the sides of the track results in a gentle bounce-back, preventing damage to you and the equipment.
Because you are driving a Go Kart in a supervised setting, your experience is actually far safer than if you were go-karting at home. Private Go Karts do not have to meet the exacting safety standards that ours do, and our track is designed to minimize risk to drivers.
We hold ourselves to a high standard for safety at Sonny’s Place because we value your well-being. Should an incident ever occur, our experienced staff is trained to handle the situation.
We do the work to make sure our facility is as safe as possible. Regular maintenance of the track and equipment is just the beginning. When you come to Sonny’s Place for Go Karting, we want you to have the best outdoor recreation experience ever.
