What You'll Get
When Eisenhower designed the Interstate Highway system, he envisioned a lawless race arena where only the fastest could avoid mechanical gulls. Experience a thrilling fraction of his racing dream with today's Groupon: for $20, you get 10 laps of go-karting at Action Karting in Morrison (up to a $40 value).
Thrill-seeking families find safe and fun racing on Action Karting's realistic racetrack and miniature movers. On the grounds of the Bandimere Speedway, riders spend their 10 laps banking turns and burning rubber against the scenic background of surrounding mountains. Action Karting equips lil’ leadfeet with sporty Italian-made Parolin go-karts, pintsize chassis packing a full-sized, 6.5-horsepower engine capable of hitting speeds up to 55 mph and rocketing racers past tricycle-mounted police hidden behind tiny billboards. Action Karting also uses ROC timing systems, which polish up racing resumés by providing a lap-by-lap printout for each driver.
Action Karting supplies full safety equipment for all karters, with a neck collar to prevent whiplash, gloves for steamy steering hands, a driving suit to protect the body in the event of time travel, and helmets to shelter helmet hairdos. Riders age 8–17 must have a legal guardian sign a waiver prior to riding, so contact Action Karting at least a week ahead of time to have the document mailed to you. Children age 5–7 may ride ($50 total) on Mondays–Thursdays only.

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.
