Wow, so the gusty wind cost us a star, thats a bit mean and I will take it up with Mother Nature. You had a good wind for your session but when it is gusty you will have very fast and not very fast moments as I outlined in the briefing. We match the equipment to the conditions to maximise the safety and enjoyment of all customers. We were happy that we had it right for your session as everyone was reaching fast speeds and going onto 2 wheels even though one of your group had a tip at the end of the session. I was closely monitoring the corner and adapting the course to the wind throughout. We operate 15 single blokarts on the track in all conditions with a range of participants including large groups of children, taking care of everyones safety and providing a fun experience. We are very competent operators and have a safety record that we are incredibly proud of. Unfortunately it would be totally uneconomic to operate just 6 karts on the track at once at our current price levels and were very happy with your session size of 9 people. Cheers Ian
Thanks for your kind comments and yes those blokarts sure enhance competitive spirits. We are in a windy area of a windy city and it usually does build as the day progresses but occasionally doesn't play ball. I'm pleased it arrived to give you a great experience and hope you found some of the spots I suggested interesting. Cheers Ian
