Now Booking 1-hour Private Sessions
Want to share an unforgettable private racing experience together with members of your household? Here’s your chance! For a very limited time only, Speeders Calgary is accepting bookings for private 1-hour sessions. And when we say private, we mean totally private! Your group will be the only customers allowed in our entire 50,000 square foot facility!
Private bookings are limited to groups made up of individuals from the same household. Racing is UNLIMITED during your session and YOU are in control! So, if you don’t feel like you need a break after a race, just let us know and we’ll get you right into a new kart and back on the track. Or, for a new challenge, try the track in reverse. Our staff will be solely focused on you, and eager to assist so that your experience is unforgettable!
Fun for the Whole Family – Both adult AND junior karting is available
Yes, our BRAND NEW junior karts are here and ready to race. Made for children 4 feet tall and up, these Italian-made electric karts are engineered for maximum fun. For the first time ever at Speeders Calgary, the thrill of racing can be shared by all members of the family!
Limited Time Only!
The opportunity to experience one of these private racing sessions will disappear as soon as Speeders Calgary is permitted to reopen again for public racing. Bookings are priced at only $300 per hourly session, regardless of the number of racers in your group. And remember, all members of your group must be from the same household.

How do I book a private session?
Bookings must be made at least 24 hours in advance and can be booked online. Our online booking system will only show sessions that remain available, so you don’t have to worry about being double booked.
What are your driver requirements?
To drive our adult karts you must be a minimum height of 5’1″. To drive our junior karts, the minimum height requirement is 4’0″. We do not have any age requirements.
What does an hourly session look like?
Our goal with private sessions is to maximize your time available for racing. So, after you book online we will send you an email which will include a link where all members of your group can register online and sign our waivers before coming in. Assuming your group has done this, all we’ll need to do is check government-issued photo ID’s of all adult participants.
Before your first race, our staff will do a quick in-person safety briefing with the group to ensure all are aware of the racing rules, flags and basics of kart operation. This briefing will be catered based on the experience level of the participants and shouldn’t take more than a couple minutes.
Once the safety briefing is done, it’s time to race! There is no limit to the number of races your group can complete, so you tell us what works for you. Die-hard racers who don’t want much of a break between races should easily be able to complete at least 4 or 5 races within a session. But again, it’s completely up to you!
Can you race Junior Karts and Adult Karts at the same time?
In normal circumstances, the answer is no. Adult karts are larger, heavier, and capable of higher speeds than junior karts. This makes junior racers particularly vulnerable in the case of any contact between an adult and junior karts.
That stated, we may make exceptions to this rule in the case of these private sessions only. So, if you are interested in a mixed race, please let our staff know. Before permitting a mixed race, all racers (particularly the adults) must first demonstrate to the satisfaction of our onsite staff that they are capable of safely controlling the karts. The final decision of whether to allow a mixed race remains with our staff.
What safety measures do you have in place, besides only allowing single households?
Our staff are screened daily before their shift and will be wearing face coverings as well as gloves whenever they are working on the floor. All areas in the building that customers may have been in contact with will be sanitized by our staff before each session. This includes equipment like our karts and helmets, as well as other high-touch areas like tables and chairs, bathrooms, railings and lockers.
Customers are expected to wear face coverings in the building when they are not racing. We also provide a new, never-worn cotton balaclava to each participant which is to be worn beneath the helmets while racing.
What if members of our group are late?
In fairness to all paying customers, we must stay on a strict schedule. This is why it is critical that all participants show up on time and come ready to race. We are not able to extend your allotted time.
I have only 2 members in my household. Can I still book?
Absolutely! There is no minimum number of participants required to book a session. However, we cannot adjust the price lower for smaller groups as there are such limited bookings available.
Can I bring my own helmet?
Yes, we highly encourage customers to bring their own helmets. All helmets must have full-face protection, include a visor or googles and be Snell/DOT-approved. If the sticker is not clearly visible, the helmet will not be allowed.
I have still have questions. Can I talk to someone?
Yes, you can reach our events team at 403-230-3009 ext 2. If we are unable to answer, please leave a message and we promise we’ll get back to you as we can.
