Go-karts allow people to experience the thrill of driving without having to hear radio ads for pungent soaps or look at four empty seats that remind them of the time someone stole their family of mannequins. Keep thrills pure with today's Groupon: for $44, you get four 16-lap go-kart races at Racer's Edge Indoor Karting in Burbank (up to a $92 value).
The knowledgeable staff at Racer's Edge Indoor Karting helps guests get suited up for fast-paced racing action. Once patrons garb their brain-boxes in a protective helmet, they can hop into one of many colorful go-karts to whiz down straightaways and hug turns during each 16-lap race. Though participants must be at least 50 inches tall to race, friends and family of all sizes can cheer from the trackside tables, which are nestled behind safety fences. Between races, hungry go-kart enthusiasts can enjoy quarter-pound beef hot dogs or freshly baked cookies. This Groupon also includes a $5 gift card that customers can use toward an annual membership or additional races.
Racer's Edge Indoor Karting
At Racer's Edge Indoor Karting, staff members flap green and checkered flags to signal the beginning and end of go-karting competition. Drivers first attend a safety briefing and don protective helmets and neck guards, then hop behind the wheel of an electric Sodi go-kart that produces minimal noise and even more minimal milk. Holding up to eight of the eco-friendly speedsters at a time, the 2.5-mile indoor race has nine turns and trackside tables where friends and family members can cheer racers to the finish line. Afterward, participants can check two projection screens for their lap times or visit the facility's deli and refuel on quarter-pound beef hot dogs and freshly baked cookies. Racer's Edge stages group outings for birthday parties with activities such as slot car racing, corporate events, and herds of deer that are tired of never getting the right of way.
