Birthday Party FAQ
Q: Can I race as part of the junior birthday party package?
A: The junior party package is for junior racers. You need 6 children for a birthday party to be scheduled and run. Usually we cannot fit adults in with juniors during birthday parties. Call us if you have a specific party you would like to customize. We will work to customize a package that creates a great experience for everyone in the party.
Q: What are G-Force Kart’s hours?
A: Here are our current operating hours. Our hours are seasonal, and sometimes we do close or reseverve G-Force during the holidays or for special rentals/parties. Check our event calendar and Facebook page for announcements and closings. We will do our absolute best to work with you to find a perfect time for your next birthday party.
Q: Do you have a room for private meetings/parties?
A: Yes, please contact us to make a reservation! We look forward to the opportunity to help make your birthday party special! Most of our parents for birthday parties choose private rooms for kids, but that is totally up to you! We recommend doing so, and are happy to work with you.
Q: How many children can race in a birthday party?
A: We get this question all the time. We do require at least 6 children for go kart parties, with a maximum of 10. We can book parties with up to 20 children for go karts, but in order to do we really have to reserve two party time slots. We do this so we can make sure we get all the karting heats out and planned correctly, so that each child has his/her opportunity to race. That being said, we customize parties daily for parents throughout Hampton Roads, so by all means please call us at 757-606-1776 or contact G-Force Karts online. We look forward to customizing a birthday party package that makes the most sense for your group.
Q: When do I have to arrive for my party?
A: Please tell all your party participants to arrive right at 15 minutes early. This allows us to get your party organized and ready to go. We do our best to provide the highest level of customer service at all times. Starting your party on time helps us keep the day flowing smoothly and insure that your party ends on time for parents picking their children up.
Q: I don’t see the party combination I would like? What do I do?
A: Call us at (757) 606-1776. We can customize almost any birthday party package or accommodate most any birthday party ideas.
Q: How far in advance do you book parties?
A: As with any sort of event planning…the sooner the better! We require a $50 deposit/down payment in order to book your party time slot, and our birthday parties tend to book up 3-4 weeks in advance. This is especially true during busier birthday party seasons. While we certainly will work with you as best we can to accommodate your schedule, the more advance notice you give us, the more likely you are to get the date and time you want!
Q: Is the deposit refundable?
A: The deposit is non-refundable but can be exchanged for a G-Force Karts gift certificate, which you can use for karting, indoor paintball or RC cars. We will, however, refund your $50 deposit in cases of inclement weather or power outages that do not allow us to operate.
Q: What do I need to bring for the party?
A: We make it easy! We provide plates, forks, napkins, cups and of course the reserved party room. If you’d like special plates or have a certain theme, by all means bring whatever you need with you! As of right now, we do ask you to bring bring your own cake and serving cutter for the cake. Aside from cake, we stock everything else you might need, including fountain sodas and water. We do allow streamers and some decorations. We do not allow silly string or confetti. Please, please, please: NO silly string or confetti!
Q: Do you offer pizza?
A: We do offer pizza. The pizza tastes great and is of good quality ingredients. We only order pizza from a place we would want to eat it from. If you’d like to include pizza for your party, just let us know when we call to confirm your party. We typically keep one or two on hand in our pizza warmer, but know that one or two might not suffice. Our point? As with everything birthday party related, give us notice on whether or not you want pizza!
