Best Go Karting Places in Bangalore: I went go-karting for the first time in Bangalore – I can’t deny saying that I have a wild soft spot for it now! Go Karting, though pricey, is gaining traction among the city’s adventure enthusiasts.
Alas, most go-karting tracks are dispersed around the city, and some are very far from the city’s center. Like most bold experiences in Bangalore like trekking, paintball, or even visiting a pup cafe, it takes a bit of getting around to find them.
But from someone who’s experienced it, it’s worth the few minutes of a sporty thrill ride. Whether you’re visiting Bangalore for a trip, or a local resident here, for the adventure enthusiasts – it’s a must-try! Here’s my list of the best go-karting places in Bangalore.

This list of go-karting tracklists out the most well-known tracks in Bangalore along with their pricing and their addresses. Some go-karting tracks offer tickets based on the number of laps while others have a time limit.

2. Patels Inn RT Nagar
.It’s one of the cheapest go-karting places in Bangalore I’ve heard of so far and I loved the experience for the price. However, people who’ve go-karted before on other tracks in Bangalore find the track here less thrilling.
Patel’s inn go-karting is best for a first-time go-karting experience, after all, it’s the cheapest one out there at Rs. 200 for 6 laps.
Patel’s Inn Go-karting prices
As mentioned before, the rates are pretty less here. It gets lesser if you’re a member of the Patel’s Inn club and resorts. I took a picture of the pricing while I visited the place and here’s the listing:
- Single Seater: Rs. 160
- Twin Seater: Rs. 240
- Single Seater: Rs. 200
- Twin Seater: Rs. 300
There are also Atv bikes (Rs. 250-300) and Segway (Rs. 200) available though they don’t stand as the main feature.

3. Grips Go-karting & Bowling
Here at the Grips Go-karting Bangalore, only one track here but depending on power and skill level – there’s a range of karts to choose from. Grips further boast of having 40 karts on the spot. With the track closing late in the evening, it offers night go-karting till 9 pm.
The rates here are again fixed for 6 laps. The pricing, when compared to Patel’s Inn, is no doubt higher but it’s reasonable for its well-tuned corners and size. Moreover, the Grips Go-karting primary business itself is modeled on go-karting and bowling, thus the expertise over the tracks and karts.

5. Red Riders
With Go-karting as the Red Rider’s primary theme, the sports club boasts its wide-spaced 750-meter track along and its powerful go-karts. But it doesn’t stop at go-karting. Other sports that regular customers here suggest are zip-lining, bungee-jumping, and paintball.
With a rapo built to attract a young audience, I’d say it’s great to visit for a competitive bunch of friends or colleagues. They don’t offer a diverse range of karts to choose from like MecoKartopia, but it’s go-karting at the end of the day. The pricing here is neither cheap nor expensive considering the track and the spot’s popularity.

However, some spots require a minimum height/age to drive on certain tracks. If it isn’t available, twin karts are also a great option where the adult may take along their kiddos for the joy ride.
