Taking the Go Kart Industry to New Heights
Remember the days when you used to go outside and rev up the go-kart in street or backyard? Flying down the yard going 20 mph was a thrill that you would remember for a lifetime! Times have changed, the toys have gotten bigger, faster and more technical. The era of the backyard go kart is a thing of the past. Homes are closer together, safety and liability linger and now the new age of electronics and entertainment have hit.
The go kart industry has kept pace with the ever changing demands of consumers. What was once the backyard activity has now spawned facilities nearing 100,000 sqft and holding corporate teambuilding events, birthday parties, competition races and more. What was a dream to many has now become a reality. For roughly $20 a ride you can get the thrill of a lifetime.
Indoor karting facilities offer an experience like none other. Road course style tracks, high performance karts, beautiful fit outs and high tech scoring systems make for an exciting afternoon. To be a 10 year old kid or a 100 year old kid, it is amazing that racing has become so available. No requirement for experience or investments, just the need for speed.
If you haven’t looked up go karting lately you might want to Google it and see what you can find in your neck of the woods. I promise it will give you and adrenaline rush!
