That's a bit.. Expensive, no? I remember Go-Karting at Powai wasn't nearly as expensive.

After I saw their Ads I was planning on going there but these rates are incredibly expensive o.O
I thought it would be charged by the lap and a few hundred for 10 laps or so....

Will have a look once they reduce costs. Is there parking available at Kamla Mills?

Hopefully, it will be a good track with good karts. Thats the only way to justify the price.

Yes, there is parking available.

Everything at Smaaash is ridiculously expensive. Been there multiple times, and the place is really good, definitely worth going to at least once, but the prices of everything is just outrageous.

It seems the prices for go-karting are following the trend, but then it's not like they have much competition in Bombay.

Have missed going here till date, though I hear its a great set up they have. The surface apparently has some special coating, which gives more grip and the karts are in good condition too, though not the most powerful. This is what I've heard. Definitely need to go there soon.

Default Re: Smaaash (Mumbai) now offers go-karting

Here is a review of the Smaaash Go-Karting experience.

1. It is COSTLY compare to other karting venues. It cost me 750 for 10 mins on the track. I took the advanced package which seems to be advertised as 600 on weekdays but they charge 750.

2. I have tried karting in many places - Pune, Goa(North and South), Mysore, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Mahabaleshwar, etc and I can easily say that this was the most polished and well maintained arenas. It was the BEST track without a doubt.

3. My drive (there is less or no waiting on weekdays, at least) was at 9 PM. The track is well lit and looks good and being on a rooftop adds a bit of more drama.

4. The track has some glisten and shine which does say that it has some sort of special coating. The karts just grip. You don't need to even break hard. Dive into a corner and the kart holds its line.

5. The track layout is pleasant. There are 3 hairpin turns one after the other and that particular part of the track is just AMAZING.

6. A lot of safety has been maintained around the track. Especially being on the rooftop, it sounds dangerous, but there is enough fencing and a lot of collision tyres around to make you feel safe.

7. The Karts themselves are clean and look great. I personally felt they were underpowered. Didn't really get a kick or the insane thrill on those straights.

8. The karts are well-padded and even if accidentally scrape or hit the other karts, the impact is minimal and feel safe again.

9. A lot of safety equipment is provided - Helmets, shoes, pants (for people wearing knickers/shorts) and elbow safety guards. The elbow guards were a first for me. They were thick and had insulation material around them to keep you safe from that naked hot engine just behind you.

10. Finally, the SMAAASH experience itself is AWESOME. They have safety lights around the track to keep you notified. Their instructions are clear and concise. They even announce which kart number is assigned to you (no need to make a dash for the karts). In the end, they give you a neatly printed track report. This report publishes your Best lap time, how many laps you completed, the average lap time, et al. In the end, there is a podium where you can stand and feel proud of your efforts.

PS: I drove at a brisk pace and finished 17 laps within my 10 allotted minutes. That I felt was value for money !
