Flags & Wheels Indoor Go Kart Racing – Best Go Karts in Rapid City

For pure adrenaline packed fun there is no other place to be than Flags & Wheels. They are the premier rental go kart location in Rapid City.

Let’s face it… They are the only go kart location in Rapid City.

Regardless! They have some pretty fast go karts that are sure to satisfy your need for speed.

The go karts offered are in two categories. The Go Karts and the Race Karts.

The Go Karts

The Go Karts at Flags and Wheels are more geared toward families and younger kids. They are a bit slower compared to the Race Karts.

The engines are 5.5 HP Honda Engines which are super reliable and easy to use. These karts will reach speeds of over 20 mph.

In my opinion the option to take a passenger is the best part about these go karts. At some go kart tracks they are focused on putting a fast and fun go kart on the track. What this causes is the inability to provide a two-seater go kart. Leaving the little ones out

Not here!

They have two-seater karts that allow the whole family to have some fun on the track!
