Pole Position Raceway, Jersey City Reviews - Write a Review
Very cool place but unless you have an annual membership it's pretty expensive. We did one race, which is 14 laps and lasts about 8 to 10 minutes, and it was $30 per person. They do provide you with a racing helmet and proper instruction though. The annual membership is only $55 and you get a race on the day you sign up and then if you do another race that day it's 50% off the member price. You also then get another race sometime during the year for free and a t-shirt as well. While you wait there are video games and food available and the place is very clean and open.
Good, but not as good as K1 Speed. This place gets super crowded, and RPM handles the crowds pretty well. Minus 2 stars because the track is small compared to K1 Speed. They probably needed to create 2 tracks in the facility to handle the crowds, but the resulting 2 track sizes are quite small with very sharp turns. Many drivers had trouble with the turns and kept spinning out. The operators had to keep slowing down all the cars to assist cars that had spun out on the sharp curves. Some of the races were in slow speed for way too much of the race. I'd give more stars if you got more laps and if they stopped counting reduced-speed laps.
This is great indoor racing track with electric carts! They have nice service too. The good thing about electric carts is they can control and reduce all carts speed remotely if something is happened on the track. It makes racing safer. Despite this is quite small electric cars they are still powerful and allows you to get on speed fast. Also they have scores on site and if you are in the ten for the day (and I was :) ) you will see it online. Races are organized smart way, the waiting time is the shortest it could be.
The raceway portion was pricey but the kids kind of enjoyed it. Preteen in the slower race and teenager in the faster one. Problem #1: Some of the drivers were treating it like bumper cars and ruining it for the rest of the participants with the staffers doing little to stop them. Problem #2: The 14 laps are measured by the lead car so my kids actually logged fewer than the amount of laps we were promised and paid dearly for. Problem #3: The arcade games are run by a separate provider who is a horrible person. We saw a game we wanted to play. Went to buy the tokens but when we returned to the game the lady slapped an "out of order" sign on the machine and refused to refund the money for the tokens we bought. Disgraceful.
Great spot for the family! Lots of fun and excellent staff. Ask for Roseanne, she is the best Manager ever and treated us like we were all family!
