Operating a go-kart is far less confusing than driving out on the open road, a curious world where green means “stop” and red means “go directly to the nearest weigh station.” Strap in for a logical ride with today's Groupon to French Lick/West Baden Indoor Karting. Choose between the following options:
- For $10, you get $20 worth of Arrive & Drive heat races.
- For $9, you get a one-year adult membership (an $18 value).
The speedsters at French Lick/West Baden Indoor Karting organize action-packed go-kart races on a 1,250-foot indoor road course. The European-made Sodi Karts can ramp up to 40 mph; junior carts, which seat ages 8–13, max out at 20 mph, but they make up for the lower speed by causing everything else to move in slow motion. The Arrive & Drive heat race ($12 for adults, $10 for juniors) thrusts contestants into an eight-minute contest against as many as nine other drivers, all competing to win the favor of the timing system and power slide their way to the top of the list of fastest laps. Karters who opt for the membership crash into the world of karting with style, enjoying perks that include a free race, a helmet head sock, quantity discounted races, plus another free race during the week of their birthday.
