Runway 9

Runway 9

Where do you go when watching movies and going bowling becomes too run-of-the-mill? Why, go-karting, of course. For a mere Rs. 125, Runway 9 offers you a simulated Formula 1 experience dizzyingly close to reality.

Runway 9 claims, and rightly so, to have the only serious go-karting course in the city of Hyderabad. Their 711-meter curvaceous cemented track is the longest in AP, is safe for kids, and can be remodelled.

To complete the entertainment experience, Runway 9 offers a range of considerably less exciting games such as pool, archery and shooting. An in-house restaurant serves food and hosts banquets. Sadly, Runway 9's excellent corporate patronage has only led to the food here being thoroughly overpriced.

Chequered Flag is the only F1-themed pub in the twin cities. With Formula 1 merchandise peering at you from the walls and threatening to jump off the ceiling, it is difficult not to be impressed by the sheer effort that has gone into the interior decoration. F1 races are screened here no matter what unearthly hour they occur at, and racing aficionados cluster here regularly to cheer for their favorites while sipping on alcohol-laced coffee. Unfortunately, however, no F1 merchandise is sold at the pub.

Runway 9 became a household name this New Year with their smash hit of a New Year's Party hosted by the top four pubs in the city. They plan a similar party for the public during Dandia. Large corporate groups often book the place for private entertainment, and a per head charge of Rs. 325 is levied for a complete Runway 9 package deal, including go-karting, games and food.

Stupidity at its highest level can be seen at Runway 9. Charging customers just for entry and then individually for each activity inside is just preposterous. To top it, the website boasts a Rs 20 entry fee while the guards at the gate charge Rs 30. The guards have no answers to any questions that you may pose regarding the activities inside the park. These questions can only be answered by the person at the far end of the park who can only be reached by paying the entry fee. We chose to only use the karting track. Fees for gokarting are higher than the website mentions. There are 5 people in charge of customers all of whom wait for someone else to bring out the karts from the carousel. Helmets that need to be used are of the lowest quality - more than half dont have buckles and the remaining cant be tightened to fit your face. And they make you wear brown jackets to prevent scratches; these look like they have been made in 1911!

SOS!

Pros: Gokarting
Cons: Everything else
