The first go-kart-racing track was a circle because it was designed to teach children how centripetal force feels without rolling them down hills in tires. Learn circularly with this Groupon.

The Deal

  • $23 for two 20-minute go-kart rides (a $46 value)

Thirty-five double- and single-seater go-karts zoom up to 40 kph through 10 turns on 0.75 kilometres of track. Free parking is available next to the facility.

Weather permitting, the track is open seven days a week from noon to 9 p.m. from May 18 through Sept. 29, and on weekends and holidays from noon to 6 p.m. from October 1 through November 3. The track also welcomes groups for birthdays, bachelor parties, and team-building exercises.

Polson Pier

The rumble of engines. The squeal of tires. The victorious flap of checkered flag. Traditionally, the exhilarating sounds of auto racing have been confined to the zooming packs of Indycars that snake around the streets of Exhibition Place every summer. Now, however, visitors to Polson Pier can keep Toronto's race day spirit alive for months at a time. The 0.75-kilometre track invites up to 20 racers at a time to navigate side-by-side traffic in karts that hit top speeds of 40 kilometres per hour. In addition to outmanoeuvring their fellow racers, drivers must also contend with the track itself, where 10 turns challenge reaction time and racing instincts alike. After races end, drivers can recount tales of on-track adventure at other nearby attractions, including a miniature golf course, indoor rock climbing, and a driving range.
