Kart Ranch – Go Karting in Lafayette

Kart Ranch is family fun bonanza! With so many things to do and see you will probably need the entire weekend to experience it all.

In reality you are only here for the go karts. Or that is what I assume the reason is.

The go karts are based around family fun making sure everyone can have a ride. Usually go kart tracks like this have a bit slower of a go kart designed for kids and families. Go karting is a family sport so this is great!

The go karts have enclosed bumpers and bodies protecting the drivers and riders. Also, the track is enclosed by metal rails backed with tires for a cushioning effect.

The best part about Kart Ranch are the kid karts. These are sized down go karts for kids that are 36″ tall. Thats awesome!

Most of the time these little guys get left out and that’s not fair!
