In order to experience the high speed thrills at Xtreme Racing Center, there are certain requirements that the center enforces. Adult and youth racers must be at least 51 inches tall to ride, and kid racers must be at least 42 inches tall. Once those basic requirements are met, all racers must have a Racing License from Xtreme Racing Center. Racing Licenses are $7.99 for adults and kids. Xtreme Racing Center also requires that patrons wear a helmet with a head sock underneath. Guests are more than welcome to bring their own helmets, but helmets must be approved by Xtreme Racing Center. Xtreme Racing Center also has three types of karts – kid karts for kid racers, and the GT5 and RT8 for adults. Adults start on the GT5, and must move up to the RT8. Kids must start in kid karts and must move up to the GT5, and so on. In order to upgrade your license, you simply show your timing sheet at the ticket counter, and you receive your license upgrade free of charge.
Credits must also be purchased in order to race. One credit is the same as one race. Adult credits are $18.99 each and kid credits are $11.99 each.
