GKM is a private practice. Reservations are required, proper conduct is expected, and benevolence is rewarded.
Mission, Outreach and Attractions:
After surveying the entire Southeast region for Go Karting, Laser Tag and Mini Golf, we decided to keep our prices affordable because it's the right thing to do. We are half the price of Birmingham and Atlanta for go karting. Our goal is to make an honest living celebrating God, family and country through vision therapy. Seeing is believing! Our beliefs won't impress you until our behavior does.
GKM offers the following visual attractions:
Outdoor go karting, indoor laser tag, indoor bumper cars, indoor mini golf, mini ferris wheel, mini roller coaster, chuck wagon ride, 80's video game arcade, billiard tables, air hockey tables, foosball, skeeball, ping pong, two party rooms and a state of the art eye clinic that accepts MEDICAID on Saturdays and Sundays. Our mission is to promote visual wellness to children via an outreach program that will captivate their attention.
Your entire racing experience can take 20-30 minutes depending on traffic. This accounts for signing in, waiting, loading, unloading, fueling and safety instructions. The minimum height to drive is 40 inches and the maximum capacity is 300lbs. Our illuminated concrete course is 20 feet wide by 1000 feet long and was poured specifically for racing. We did not retrofit a flat warehouse floor or a crumbling asphalt lot with plastic barricades or discarded tires. Our sloped turns and steel rails will guide you through 4 right turns, 2 left turns and 2 straightaways. Caution: slippery when wet! For those who remember, our track is 4 times larger than the old Emerald Falls course in Prattville. Our karts are loud and they are menacing. The experience is fun and habit forming. Children arrive crying, "I don't wanna go!" and leave crying, "I don't wanna go!" We love our regulars and consider them family. Judge for yourself, if there is a cheaper go karting facility within 70 miles, we will match their offer! Until then, start your engines and may the G force be with you!

If you still think we are too expensive, lame or not worth your time and money, you are probably right. Go skating or Go bowling, Go karting isn't for everyone but it is here for those who can follow the Golden Rule: treat others the way you want to be treated. Don't come if you're a jerk. Better yet, don't be a jerk. We welcome wholesome family fellowship but will not tolerate any form of hate, discrimination, aggression, arrogance, misconduct or negativity. Positive something is better than negative nothing. Driving is a privilege, not a right. The customer is not always right at GKM. You are not at Walmart and we are not Burger King - you can't always have it your way. You are welcome in our clinic as long as YOU don't wear out your welcome. Leave hurtful comments or negative feedback and your driving privilege will be revoked. Don't like what you see? Don't join. No need to be negative. Be positive, be safe, help others and have fun!
We welcome members of every faith, race, gender, political party, nationality, culture, sexual orientation, economic circumstance, age and marital status. However, we reserve the right to refuse service to anyone who is belligerent, reckless, intoxicated or hateful. The price of hating another human being is loving oneself less. People hear your words and feel your attitude. Our attitude toward life determines life's attitude toward us. The world is changed by your example not by your opinion. Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing oneself. Be who you needed when you were younger. It is never too late to be what you might have been. Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine. The fragrance of flowers spreads only in the direction of the wind but the kindness of your action spreads in all directions. A positive word of encouragement can help change anyone's destiny.
Together, we can make Montgomery greater than it was. The Capital of Dreams can be had with good will, guidance and gratitude. Our investment is high but your gain is priceless. If the price of recreation is more than you can afford, save your time and your money and spend it with your family. The best way to pay for a lovely moment is to enjoy it. Choose to be grateful, it will always make you happy. Success is getting what you want but happiness is wanting what you get. Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value. You get what you give so be generous to yourself.
