TBC Indoor Kart Racing provides ground for ungoverned racers to zoom around on an indoor track. A state-of-the-art timing system and big, fast engines mean a trip around the squiggly track will satisfy the want racers have mistaken as a need for speed in record time. TBC's karts use a clean-air exhaust system, so stressed lungs can breathe easily as they zip around the bend, and a separate game lounge keeps kartophobic friends occupied as companions race around the track.
The half-hour exclusive racing package gives drivers a half hour to settle road-rage arguments or prove to up to 11 friends that six failed driving tests were in fact flukes. Defeated and disillusioned compatriots can be rallied back together in the full-service banquet and meeting rooms.
Indoor Kart Racing @ TBC
Rows of sleek, black SODI RT8 go-karts vibrate at the start of Indoor Kart Racing @ TBC's 1/5-mile track. Drivers hover 2 inches above the ground, anxiously awaiting the moment they can slam down the gas pedal and accelerate their vehicle capable of reaching speeds of up to 75 km/h. Everyday from 10 a.m. until midnight, an adrenalin-fuelled parade of karts hugs the course’s 13-turns as drivers 11 and older flex their navigational muscles and best their times using a high-tech digital timing system. In between laps, video games and air hockey occupy fingers itching for the steering wheel. The family-friendly environment, kept fume-free via the karts’ clean air exhaust systems, hosts solo riders, as well as groups that can rent out the full service banquet meeting room to celebrate a birthday or conduct field research about popular carpet fabrics.
