Fun is always on the schedule at Blake Jones Racing Center. At this Pigeon Forge attraction, you can get your fill of high-speed antics as you race around the track on their electric go-karts. They’re also known for their ultra-fun bumper cars, goofy golf track, and amusement park rides for the little ones.

Whenever you go with the go-karts, their indoor arena will keep you safe from the elements while cruising around, keeping your fun going for as long as you wish. You can also take your need for speed outdoors to take in the view as you pilot the go-karts down the straights and around the corners.

You absolutely must try their:

Figure 8 Slick Track
The Figure 8 Slick Track is super short but big enough to get up to speed fast. The competition is fierce, so expect aggressive driving with lots of quick passes. Many people also come here to master drifting and aim to spend the whole trip around the figure eight in a controlled slide. So, either way, you’re in for a show while you wait. But, since the track is so short, you never have to wait long before it’s your turn.

Indoor Electric Go-Karts
The indoor electric go-karts are built to delight and have settings for beginners to experienced drivers. They are ultra-quiet and fume-free, yet wicked fast. The oval track allows you to rapidly get up to speed and then tests your ability to master your racing lines. Since the track is climate-controlled and covered, you can come race, rain or shine, without worry about the weather. 

Spin Zone Bumper Cars
Although they don’t go very fast, the Spin Zone Bumper Cars are just as thrilling as the go-karts. As you battle it out, your car may jostle and spin around uncontrollably. Try to maintain your bearings, so you can spin your competitors a bit as well. Even if you’re successful at that mission, you’re sure to walk away a bit dizzy.

If you’d like to come through with a big group, ask about their birthday party packages. They have many affordable options to consider, all easily customizable for your group size and preferences. Due to the popularity of this track, you’ll likely need to schedule in advance, so call early to reserve your spot.
