For karting enthusiasts, NOLA Rental Geaux Karts are specially designed for maximum comfort and safety. Speeds range from 20 to 45 miles per hour, depending on the size of the kart and the height of the driver. Helmets and neck braces are provided by the track and drivers can have their speeds and times measured by computer.

Up to 18 karts can be allowed on the track at a time and, to accommodate more, a second track can be opened to accommodate up to 30 total drivers at a time. A convenient, 5.7 acre paddock area adjacent to the track is provided for kart drivers and their families.
