The first condition of access to BattleKart is the question of height: a minimum height of 1.45m is necessary to be able to safely reach the controls. In case of doubt, the personnel reserve the right to check the height of the player using a height gauge, without shoes, and to refuse access to the game if the player does not meet this condition.
The second condition of access is the physiological and psychomotor control of the go-kart. It is necessary to have sufficient psychomotor reflexes to coordinate the controls for acceleration, braking, and steering.
Should a member of our staff notice that a player lacks this control, thereby posing a potential risk to other players, the staff and/or the equipment, the Management of BattleKart authorises the staff member to stop the game and accompany the player in question to the podium zone.
In addition, our go-karts are not adapted for people who do not have mobility in both their legs. It is therefore necessary to be able to physically control both the brakes and the steering at the same time, which means that a player with valid use of at least the left leg and the right arm could access the activity, under certain conditions and after verification by our track staff.
