European Formula EK20 karts whiz by on Pole Position Raceway’s quarter-mile track, cruising at speeds of up to 45 miles per hour. Spectators crank their heads to keep up. There’s no wind to battle against, no sun blinding the drivers’ eyes, and no birds rigging the race by dropping smoke bombs because all of Pole Position Raceway’s competitions happen inside. This is thanks to a fleet of electric-powered karts, which accelerate more quickly and hug curves more smoothly than gas-powered karts without dumping out clouds of exhaust.
To sate speed cravings, drivers simply arrive and drive—show up and nab one of 13 spots in the next race. Then with a DOT-approved racing helmet, they push the pedal to the floor for roughly 10 minutes, drafting their opponents to fly past them near the finish line. At the end of each race, drivers receive a SpeedSheet that displays their race results, fastest lap time, and the likelihood of getting their own action-movie franchise. For those seeking to dive deep into the world of racing, Pole Position Raceway offers driving clinics and youth racing camps, where younger racers pilot EK10 karts that peak at 20 mph.
At Fast Lap Indoor Kart Racing, which earned CityVoter's Best Sports and Recreational Activity title in 2009, visiting motorists whirl around a 1,200-foot indoor track designed by former IKF racers. Drivers suit up with protective helmets and neck collars before strapping themselves into Sodi karts, whose gas-powered Honda 200-cubic-centimeter engines and miniature horses power them through 10- to 12-minute races. The indoor facility’s professionally engineered exhaust system ensures safe, clean air for all racers as they wind through the course with up to 11 other competitors. Computerized timing systems accurately record photo finishes, and video helmets and race suits are available to enhance the experience. A slew of celebrity guests have been known to frequent the track, giving visitors a rare opportunity to outwit IndyCar drivers or trade high-speed knock-knock jokes with Hollywood comedians.
Described as “Bob the Builder on steroids” by The Los Angeles Times, Dig This reconstructs childhood play for adults letting them climb aboard excavators and bulldozers for digs inside a giant natural sandbox. Employees outfit grown-ups with the knowledge and safety gear necessary to get behind the wheel before explaining all the levers and buttons of the control panel. Patrons are then left alone inside climate-controlled cabs, connected to their instructors via headsets in case they need additional guidance. Patrons steer mechanical mammoths around the play yard, excavating trenches and toppling huge tires. Once they've mastered easy moves, they graduate to games such as Bulldozer Teeter-Totter and Excavator Basketball. After playtime, operators are awarded a certificate to commemorate their accomplishments and can cool off under a shower of their own joyful tears.
Shots ring out across the Wild Wild West paintball field as players belly-flop behind hay bales and crouch-walk through the saloon. On a second field, players storm a castle and sprint past water towers, racing to the center to capture the flag planted there. Those two battlegrounds at Las Vegas Premier Paintball are ripe with chances for team strategy, and a third, smaller field dotted with inflated obstacles creates a fast-paced game that requires you to be fleet-footed and quick on the draw.
Five days a week, teams suited up with full facemasks engage each other in just such battle across the facility's outdoor fields. With the addition of overhead lights, the center now stays open later on Wednesday nights, allowing players to battle away from the sun’s heat. Paintballing groups of 10 or more can also reserve the field of their choice for birthdays, bachelor parties, or corporate team-building events.
Vegas Indoor Skydiving was one of America’s first indoor skydiving facilities, built in 1982 right in the heart of the Strip. The wind tunnel, which blows air up to 120 miles per hour, has a mesh trampoline bottom and padded sides, creating a safe environment for novices and experienced fliers to simulate skydiving without an airplane or parachute.
Like celebrities such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hanks, and Ozzy Osbourne, three past fliers, you’ll start your session with a short safety tutorial. Then you’ll be outfitted with a flight suit, goggles, and helmet and hit the wind tunnel for a 3-minute controlled flight—which is 5–6 times longer than the average duration of an outdoor skydive.
