A new £60,000 go-karting attraction is now open at Sandham Gardens in Sandown.

Sandham Karts is a 150m track located near the seafront at Sandown and has 6 battery powered, electric karts ready to race at once. The attraction is suitable for children aged 4-12.

It marks the latest phase of development at Sandham Gardens by Heritage Attractions Ltd, who also operate The Needles Landmark Attraction on the Island.

Christian Zanti operations manager, Sandham Gardens, said:

“Our first week has been a great success, and there have been plenty of happy faces leaving the track. Many visitors have already expressed an interest in coming back again, so it is certainly proving a big hit with kids.

“We’re thrilled to see that the latest addition to Sandham Gardens is proving so popular and we hope it will boost the number of visitors coming to the area.”

Last month, the Isle of Wight Council backed plans for a new high-ropes course in Sandown scheduled to open next year.
