Go-karts allow people to experience the thrill of driving without having to hear radio ads for pungent soaps or look at four empty seats that remind them of the time someone stole their family of mannequins. Keep thrills pure with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $25 for an Indy-style car racing package for two (a $55.40 value)
- $50 for an Indy-style car racing package for four (a $110.80 value)
Each guest receives:

- Racing license (a $3.50 value each)
- One all-day game-room wristband with unlimited play for all nonprize games (a $6.95 value each)
Those with state-issued driver's licenses (or Malibu Raceway Car Control Clinic graduates who are 14 or older) take the wheel of a winged Virage or Sprint racer during excursions. After completing their five total laps, racers can show off their wristband to enjoy all-day use of nonprize games such as air hockey and billiards. Prize games are not included with all-day game-room wristbands.
While many go-karts look like miniature versions of Formula racecars, the similarities usually stop there. This isn’t the case at Malibu Raceway. Atop a fully independent wishbone-suspension design, Malibu’s Indy-style Virage rumbles with an 18-horsepower Briggs & Stratton engine inspired by its professional, full-sized brethren. Youngsters that didn’t get Playskool’s My First I.D. Forger for Christmas can whiz around the half-mile outdoor track in a 9-horsepower Sprint kart, which keeps little riders safely strapped in with a four-point, race-style harness. Blinking battalions of arcade machines stand guard over a game room underscored by the din of clacking pool balls, and a snack bar sates cravings with corn dogs, cotton candy, and popcorn.
