Questions to Consider when Buying a GoKart

"Gee, Mom and Dad, I sure wish we had a GoKart!"

That's certainly a common wish among children and teens. And it's easy to understand why. Gokarts are fun and can provide lots of good entertainment for the entire family.

At FamilyGoKarts.com, we're here to answer your questions and help you find the right gokart for your family. We've been delivering family fun since 1990.

Parents who are in the market for a GoKart for their child or teen are to be commended because it's a responsible choice to want your youngster to be having fun under your own direct supervision. We know safety is a primary concern. We are here to help you make the right choice in terms of size, speed and safety features.

What are some of the considerations in buying a GoKart?


  • Age Group

    Generally, the breakdown for age groups with GoKarts is 3-11 for kids, 8-15 for youth and 16 and over for adults. Parents will know the maturity and ability levels of their children to help determine which age group applies. We want to help you decide which model works best for your child and your family.

  • Double-Seated

    Since most GoKarts are double-seated this brings up the question of how the vehicle will be used. If a mother or grandmother is riding with the child, a mid-sized model may be appropriate. If the second rider is a father or grandfather, it is likely that an adult-sized model fits the bill. Of course, these choices will vary from family to family.

  • Engine Size

    Our current models for kids come in engine sizes from 80cc to 163cc. Youth models range from 107cc to 200cc and our adult engine sizes are 150cc to 300cc. Several electric models also are available.

  • Reverse?

    With or without a reverse function is another question you need to consider. We have different models to choose from based on your preference on this operational issue.

  • Lot of Styles

    Style does play a role in your decision-making process. Our GoKarts come in lots of exciting styles. We'll help you make the right choice for you and your family.

  • Color

    We have many great colors in the different models we offer. Check out our website at FamilyGoKarts.com to choose what color appeals to you.

  • Tire Size

    Ground clearance is another consideration and our different models have a range of tire sizes to meet your needs and preference.

  • Safety

    This is a paramount concern for us and we encourage you to take all the necessary steps to promote safety in your family's use of the GoKart. An important safety feature of many of our smaller GoKarts is remote control with an engine shutoff. Some models also feature a way to limit the travel distance of the throttle which can be an important safety feature on kids and youth go carts and ATVs.

  • Helmets

    A crucial safety factor is the use of a well-designed helmet, and we offer a variety of choices for all age groups. Bottom line... NEVER RIDE WITHOUT A HELMET! Don't have one? Get one!
