Riding in go-karts and playing miniature golf are excellent ways to prepare children for a future filled with high-speed car chases and malevolent windmills. Ready, set, go with this Groupon.
$20 for $40 Worth of Go-Kart Rides and Entertainment
The $40 credit may be used toward any amusement in the facility. Obtain an annual membership license ($10) and test your skills on the upstairs go-kart track ($12/race) or practice your putts on the 18-hole downstairs mini-golf course ($6/person). The credit may also be used toward arcade play, billiards matches, games of bowling, and a bite to eat at Drafters Sports Cafe.
Tires squeal and a 15-horsepower engine hums as its driver cuts through a narrow turn, shaving fractions of a second off the lap. Below the track, a colorful golf ball winds through faux island trees, avoiding walls and stops on its way to an awaiting hole. It's another day at Tri-State Speedway, a multileveled family entertainment center littered with motorized fun for patrons of any age. The upstairs, 22,000-square-foot go-kart track hosts competitive races with karts calibrated for speeds of up to 25 miles per hour. A walk downstairs leads to the island-themed, 18-hole mini-golf course nestled among a large video-game arcade, bowling lanes, bumper cars, and billiard tables. When fun gives way to hunger, Drafters Sports Cafe's servers and cooks serve finger-friendly pub bites, ice-cold beer, and paper napkins fashioned from losing basketball brackets.
Needless to say they've got it all. It's fun, fairly big and quite a bit to do.Dan B., Yelp, 7/30/12
