KartWheelz Terms and Conditions

KartWheelz staff and operator’s will make every effort to ensure that your child’s birthday party, special occasion or activity event is a Fun, Fantastic and Thrilling experience that will be remembered fondly for years to come. To ensure that this happens, there are a few terms and conditions we would like to draw your attention to.

1. General:

1.3. Deposit to be paid within 48 hours of the initial booking.

1.4. Once the deposit is received and the booking is confirmed any cancellation may result in 100% loss of deposit. This is to adhere to the booking policies of third parties, leisure centres and halls.

1.5. The balance must be paid, 14 days prior to the party. Failure to do so may result in the party booking being cancelled with the loss of the deposit.

1.6. KartWheelz reserves the right to alter or cancel any party booking on the day due to weather conditions or any other factors outside our control. In the event of an unforeseen circumstance, KartWheelz will do their very best to accommodate this circumstance and continue with the party, but this may not always be possible. In the unlikely event that this happens KartWheelz would offer a full refund. No other compensation would be given.

1.7. If you need to cancel your event, we require a minimum of 72 hours notice as per the terms and conditions with leisure centres, third parties and halls.

1.8. A KartWheelz party consists of 4 electric Go Karts within an inflatable track. While our Go karts are well maintained, there may be rare circumstances where either a Go Kart is damaged or suffers mechanical breakdown. We will attempt to fix the Go Kart onsite but where this is not possible, the party will continue with a reduced number of Go Karts with no refund due.

1.7. Where the party is held at your own premises, we will endeavour to check that the proposed site meets our operating requirements, but when this is not practicable due to the distance or other circumstances, we then rely on you to examine the area to check yourself that the venue meets the requirements as detailed below. We will discuss this with you prior to confirmation of booking. When we arrive for the party we will carry out a risk assessment. If our criterion is not met KartWheelz reserve the right to cancel or amend the event without a refund. (Section 2)

1.8. In addition to KartWheelz staff, at least two adults must be present at the event at all times to supervise the children not driving the Go Karts. It is the responsibility of these adults to ensure that associated entourage and spectators plus participating children do not enter the track area until called forward by KartWheelz staff operator.

1.9. The session time for your Go Karting party includes time allowed for the pre-Go Karting safety briefing and for the handing out of certificates and presentation ceremony at the end.

3.5. Children must not wear or carry anything which could cause an obstruction or get caught in any part of the Go Kart.

3.6. Every child must listen to the safety briefing which we give prior to each party. If there are latecomers, they will be given the safety briefing when they arrive. This may result in a reduced Go Karting time for the other children.

3.7. A child must demonstrate that they can use the Go Kart as instructed. Specifically: they must be able to keep moving forward at a steady pace so as not to obstruct other children driving; they must be able to steer the Go Kart without deliberately bumping into other Go Karts or the track. They must demonstrate that they can stop the Go Kart when asked and be able to carry out these simple actions without assistance if driving the Go Kart alone.

No refund will be due in the unlikely event of a child being excluded.

3.8. If required a child can have a responsible adult to assist on the Go Kart. This is at the discretion of KartWheelz. At no point will we ride on the Go Karts with a child in order to assist them.
