What You'll Get
To win a go-kart race, drivers should arrive at the track early to scope out sharp turns and figure out which car responds to the command, “Go, kart.” Test racing intelligence with this Groupon to Action Karting in Morrison. Choose between the following options:

Between the towering peaks of Dinosaur Ridge and “the Hogback,” Action Karting’s trackmasters send racers aged 8 and older whizzing around a 17-turn track, decked in race-ready driving suits, helmets, gloves, and neck collars. Each 10-lap session begins with an overview of signal flags, a review of safety protocols, and the dos and don’ts of sponsorship-logo placement. Races on the outdoor track send speed demons squealing in Italian-made Parolin karts, whose 6.5-horsepower Honda engines can send drivers’ speed rocketing up to 55 miles per hour. After riders finish burning rubber, they receive a printout of their lap times and top speeds. While green flags drop until dusk six days a week during the winter months, drivers planning an evening sprint should arrive one hour before sunset to avoid missing cutoffs or running into the packs of nocturnal marathon runners that inhabit the track at night.

About Action Karting
Sandwiched between Dinosaur Ridge and the Hogback, Action Karting buzzes year-round with the sound of drivers zigzagging across its 17-turn outdoor track. The company's professional, Italian-made go-karts sport 6.5-horsepower Honda engines that power the pint-sized rides to speeds of up to 55 miles per hour. Before speedometers spring from zero, Action Karting's staff always delivers a safety speech that includes a review of hand signals, such as those for "left turn," "right turn," and "stop, collaborate, and listen." The track can also be rented out to host private events, including birthdays and corporate team-building events.
