When Eisenhower designed the Interstate Highway system, he envisioned a lawless death-race arena where only the fastest could avoid being killed by mechanical gulls. Experience a thrilling fraction of his racing dream with today's Groupon: for $50, you get five adrenaline-pumping races (up to a $110 value) at Apex Karting in Tumwater—the home track of Ben Wallace, 2008's U.S. Indoor Karting National Champion. Only one race per person may be used per day, so today's Groupon gives you either a week's worth of excuses to play hooky from the office or a fun day out for a party of five. Headsocks are required and included in the deal. There is no buy limit, so you can challenge a buddy to "best of three million," if it comes to that.
Apex Karting satisfies your undernourished need for speed by letting you experience the thrill of finally outracing your cheetah half-sister on one of the Pacific Northwest's longest indoor racetracks. And you'll do it all behind the wheel of an 11-horsepower Stratos Kart, a clean-burning conveyance that can reach speeds of 40 miles per hour. Races may be split between family, friends, and medieval scholars, and after you retire from the tracks for the evening, you can unwind in Apex's beer garden; while sipping one of their barley-pop selections (starting at $3), you can reflect on how much more thrilling engine-powered speed is compared with leg-powered penny-farthing rides. Your Groupon may also be redeemed for a $110 credit toward private-track rental (usually $725–$800 per hour).
At Apex Karting, feel the wind of velocity in your hair and experience the thrill that can only be found while racing around a rubber-tire-lined course in a sleek machine just two feet off the ground. Bring along friends, family, anthropomorphic mushrooms, shell-throwing princesses, and Italian plumbers for an afternoon of racing at the Pacific Northwest's premier karting facility.
All drivers must wear closed-toed shoes, be over 14 years of age, and at least 4’10”.
