The first go-kart-racing track was a circle because it was designed to teach children how centripetal force feels without rolling them down hills in tires. Learn circularly with today's Groupon: for $25, you get two outdoor go-kart sessions for one person at Jet Karting in Sheridan (a $55 value).

Behind the wheel of custom-enhanced Italian racing machines, go-kart enthusiasts zip around Jet Karting’s nearly three-quarter-mile course, where Danica Patrick has tested her mettle. During each 15-minute session, speedsters chase up to 14 opponents past swift sweepers, over acclivities, and around harrowing hairpin turns. On a long, wide course boasting a track with more grip than Velcro slathered in pine tar, go-kart jockeys can whip their mechanical beasts past Sunday drivers at speeds of up to 45 mph. Good for drivers of all skill levels, the course's large territory allows for long run-off areas if a turn should be missed during victory-lap daydreaming, and all safety gear is provided. Drivers walk away from finish lines with a commemorative head sock, excellent for protecting heads under helmets and embarrassing feet when they show up wearing the same ensemble.

Jet Karting

Wind whistles and engines roar as custom go-karts zip around Jet Karting's outdoor race track at speeds of up to 45 miles per hour. Rented – along with all necessary safety equipment – to guests of all experience levels, the low-riding vehicles cruise the course in 15-minute bouts, during which up to 15 riders race each other. Speed School classes tailored to three different age groups prep more experienced racers to take laps in powerful spec racers and Rotax karts. The staff recommends guests bring long pants, close-toed shoes, and a desire to move quickly while basically in the fetal position.

Customer Reviews

Was a great experience but the curves are quite sharp and it is very easy to get an upset stomach with the speed and curves.
