COVID19 – Latest Update 18/1/21

Our Edinburgh and Falkirk centres are both now closed to comply with the Coronavirus Level 4 protection levels in place throughout mainland Scotland. 

All bookings from 26/12 to the 18/1 were cancelled and refunded in full. Any bookings from 18/1 through to a confirmed date we are able to reopen will also have to be cancelled, we will be contact affected bookings on our return and offer either a refund or the option to reschedule. 

We will look forward to welcoming you back to Xtreme Karting, focused on delivering a fun, thrilling experience in a COVID-19 secure environment. 

At present we have not opened up our online booking system, we will wait until an opening date is confirmed before we start taking further bookings.

Our no quibble COVID19 Booking Guarantee: Given the uncertainty surrounding bookings with the impact of COVID 19, we are happy to confirm that all prebooked sessions can be rescheduled or refunded up to 24 hours in advance of the booking, after this point sessions can still be rescheduled up to 4 hours before the session time.

UPDATE on Travel Restrictions: Please visit https://www.gov.scot/check-local-covid-level/ to check for your post code area and the up to date rules in place, unfortunately we are unable to give individual advice, we would ask that customers take individual responsibility and follow the rules in place regarding travel restrictions etc, for everyones safety.

For clarity our Edinburgh centre is within Edinburgh City Council area, and our Larbert centre within Falkirk Council area.

At present, with some tiers different across Scotland, we would also like to advise that as we are classified as a sports centre, under 18 year olds are legally allowed to travel from a tier 2 or tier 3 area to either of our centres to race at Xtreme Karting. Organised activities and Sport are considered a reasonable excuse for travel, and this includes allowance for parents etc who are responsible for taking them, please ensure you follow the guidance on safe transport (See Coronavirus (COVID-19): guidance on travel and transport – gov.scot (www.gov.scot)).

Helmet / Suit Sanitising: We would also like to update everyone on how we are sanitising helmets / race suits as this has remained a frequent question from visitors. Prior to reopening both centres invested in new state of the art OZOCAB sanitising cabinets, these allow both helmets and race suits to be sanitised with a constantly monitored dose of Ozone (proven to eradicate the COVID19 virus). We have also invested in over 300 new helmets, allowing each customer to be allocated a sanitised helmet and race suit on arrival, that is only used by that customer for the duration of the visit, and then returned when leaving allowing the equipment to be sanitised again.

Every customer is also issued with a “Hygiene Pack” that includes a balaclava (can be used as a face covering in centre) and gloves – the cost of the Hygiene Pack is included in the session price!

Karting (currently closed):

We are able to offer Race Experience Sessions suitable for juniors (ages 10-16) and Adults (ages 14+) at both our Edinburgh and Falkirk centres, providing a fun and thrilling experience in a COVID secure environment for smaller groups of racers (with the option of adding medal sets), and we still can offer race school for budding drivers aged 8-9.

Adult Race Events / Junior Karting Parties: We have been advised that as we are classed as a sports activity we are exempt from the current guidelines on group sizes / household and can continue to offer karting events, however we believe it is the responsible way forward at present, given the confusion over group events (numbers / households) and concerns over potential local lockdowns etc to halt any further bookings for group indoor karting group events until the Scottish Government advice on maximum group sizes / households etc is relaxed.

Combat (currently closed):

Junior Combat Parties: We have altered the format of these parties to allow under 12’s (ages 6-11) to play in our Special Forces Party Events, as this is an outdoor activity no social distancing is required and they can still have lots of fun, whilst complying with the latest COVID precautions and rules!

Open Combat Events: We are still offering our Special Forces Open Combat events, suitable for family groups (ages 6+ / adults) to experience the fun and thrill of laser tag combat in our outdoor urban themed arena.

Game Over Escape Rooms (currently closed):

Experience the thrill of our immersive “Game Over” escape rooms, can you retrieve “The Philosopher’s Stone” in our Harry Potter inspired challenge, or rescue the “Top Secret” documents from the vault, or survive and escape our zombie apocalypse in “The Walking Death”. Challenging, and fun for groups of up to 6 players (max 2 households).
