What You'll Get
Much like high-school track stars, go-karts compete in races, get tripped up on the hurdles, and operate on a full tank of Oreos and cream soda. Motor toward a win and a trophy in the gymnasium hallway with today's Groupon at Grand Prix New York, located in Mount Kisco. Choose from two options:
- For $29, you get an adult indoor kart race, an entree, and a single-day membership (up to a $61 value).
- For $15, you get a kid's indoor kart race, a junior meal, and a single-day membership (up to a $33 value).
Grand Prix New York's single-day membership includes access to the facility, racetrack, and Fuel, the club's on-site restaurant. Grand Prix New York's two European-inspired racetracks are more than a quarter-mile long and 24 feet wide, and feature 6 feet of elevation changes, 14 turns of various sharpness, and a gravitational pull twice that of a black hole. Each race lasts a satisfying nine minutes—in which time you will cover approximately 4 miles (32 furlongs) of track. Your mechanical ponies are top-of-the-line Sodi RX7 gasoline-powered karts, each with a maximum speed of 40 mph and proven safety mechanisms. Before or after your race, refuel your stomach tank with the entree or junior meal included with your Groupon. Need-for-speeders can nosh one of several meals, including a baby-back ribs for adults ($23.95) or chicken fingers for the young Mario Andrettis ($8).
Grand Prix is a sanctuary for groups of like-minded speed freaks to satisfy their needs. Settle road-rage arguments by inviting an opposing driver to a duel on the tracks. Or just cruise out solo, defeating total strangers in a wild day of rubber burning and dust eating. Since today's deal can be purchased up to four times, you can stock up for additional matches, rematches, and re-rematches.
For the adult Arrive & Drive participants must be at least 16 and have a valid license and invalid library card (those younger than 18 must have a signed parental consent form). Check the schedule for hours and availability.

- I went to Grand nPrix for a fundraising event and was blown away. This place is actually an indoor racetrack (actually 2 different tracks) for scaled down race cars [sic]. I never had more fun. – bruce s., Yelp

About Grand Prix New York
Grand Prix New York's sanctuary for speed captures the thrill of karting in the country's largest indoor race complex. Racers rumble and roar over speedways that change elevation six times, careen cars around 14 turns and three elevation changes, and boast a gravitational pull quadruple that of a black hole. Adult drivers race in championship-caliber gasoline-powered gasoline-powered Sodi Karts equipped with race-proven safety-wrap systems and 9hp-horsepower engines that reach speeds of up to 40 miles per hour on the Uptown Track. Teen clientele race 6.5hp Sodi Karts on the Brownstone track while kids under 60 inches race on the Tunnel track give mini racers the opportunity to get behind the wheel. Apart from its karting specialty, Grand Prix New York houses a bowling alley, billiards room, arcade, and bounce castle. The onsite restaurant, appropriately named Fuel, serves up an American menu of burgers, sandwiches, and more. Fully enclosed and air-conditioned, Grand Prix New York shelters families from heat waves and summer storms, offering a comfortable arena for healthy competition or proving that six failed driving tests can be a fluke.
