$15 for $30 Worth of Indoor Go-Kart Racing, Mini Golf, and Food
Visitors 18 and older can climb into go-karts to race around the track ($22 for one visit, up to $35 for a membership) and play through an 18-hole miniature golf course ($3 per person). The café keeps guests fueled with hot dogs, pretzels, and root beer floats ($1-$6). Visitors ages 8 through 15 must complete a safety training course and sign up for a membership before they race.
Maine Indoor Karting
The karts at Maine Indoor Karting definitely aren’t of the amateur variety. The center maintains a fleet of European racing karts that balance the power of 200 CC, 6.5-hp Honda engines and wet clutch drive systems with the comfort of adjustable padded seats. Before climbing into these speed machines, adults must first attend safety briefings, suit up in provided uniforms, and strap on helmets. Drivers younger than 15 must complete an intensive safety course on how to steer safely, increase speed, and ramp over oncoming fruit carts. But all that prep proves to be worth it when drivers squeal out onto the newly renovated serpentine track and motion-blur their way through 1,200 feet of narrow stretches and sharp switchbacks.
The family-fun center also houses an indoor 18-hole miniature golf course and an arcade filled with video games. An on-site café serves casual fare such as hot-dogs, hand-made pizza, and root beer floats.
