Three choices of outrageous fun! Suitable for kids from 8 years and up, Velocity Karts offers wind-powered blokart land yachts or battery-powered drift karts as well as the hilarious Human Foosball. Each choice provides adrenalin, excitement, exhilaration and simply a fantastic and fun experience for big and little kids!
No experience is necessary although sailors among you might have an advantage! Otherwise we can get you moving within minutes, and if you're blokarting, we'll match your sail to suit your age, skills and strength, just like sailing. We also offer Tandem Karts for those under 8, people with disabilities, or for children who want to build confidence by riding with someone else.
You can see these awesome, fun 'land yachts' sometimes racing along the beach - now it's your turn!
We put you in a controlled environment and provide full instruction and support. We have a range of sails to suit the conditions and your level of confidence. Whether you're looking for fun for the whole family or celebrating a birthday, racing your friends or chasing an adrenalin rush, Velocity Karts has it all. It is a great activity to do as part of a group where you can pit your new found skills against your friends.
Front wheel driven with unique drifting wheels, these karts provide an experience like no other. The battery powered drift-kart is the latest invention from the creative Paul Beckett and Velocity Karts is the lucky first operator of these amazing machines outside of the Becketts Papamoa operation. It's a great way to bring people together for a birthday or simply an afternoon of fun!
Ideal for groups of 6 or more, and the first of its kind in Christchurch. It's just like table foosball only YOU are the player! Great for birthday parties.
Schools programmes available to all students 8 years and over. We have a wide range of sails to suit your skills and progression - there's always more you can learn!
