I think any kid at any age still gets the thrill of driving a go-kart as we once did growing up and it’s hard to believe how popular these things still are. Just the small size of these, the way they just zip in and out of turns is cool in itself. To be totally honest, I think I have wrecked numerous times with these and still was able to walk away unscathed each time. Now, I’m not saying this will be your good fortune but these are a pretty safe ride if you have the padding, goggles and helmet on as the newer models are a bit more open than when I was a kid. The go-karts nowadays can reach speeds of 45mph also, another reason to be safe since back in our day, you were lucky to do 30-35mph with the latest and greatest lawnmower engine that was “enhanced”.
Go-kart facilities are everywhere, no matter what city or what state you go to. One of the huge facilities that has many western locations, Pole Position Raceway, has just opened a facility in Jersey City for serving both residents of New Jersey and New York. The facility caters to walk-ins who want to race family, friends and other customers as well as handle small and large private groups, corporate events, building programs for teams, product launches, training classes, meetings and even birthday and bachelor parties are welcomed. You can obtain a season racing pass for $199 right now which is good for all locations and is valid for 36 of the seasonal races. Membership packages are very reasonable as well as the special public and private events you may want to schedule. This is a good way to keep your kids from thinking mom and dad are boring and getting old!!
