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 this Groupon.
$25 for a Go-Kart Outing for Two ($55.40 Value)
- Two five-lap racing packages for single-passenger go-karts (a $17.25 value each)
- Two photo racing licenses with one free lap each (a $3.50 value each)
- Two all-day game-room wristbands with unlimited play for all non-prize games (a $6.95 value each)
Those with state-issued driver's licenses (or Malibu Raceway Car Control Clinic graduates who are 14 and older) take the wheel of a winged Virage racer during excursions. After completing their six total laps, racers can show off their wristband to enjoy all-day use of non-prize games such as air hockey and billiards. Prize games are not included with all-day game-room wristbands.
While many go-karts look like miniature versions of Formula racecars, the similarities usually stop there. This isn’t the case at Malibu Raceway. Atop a fully independent wishbone-suspension design, Malibu’s Indy-style Virage rumbles with an 18-horsepower Briggs & Stratton engine inspired by its professional, full-sized brethren. Youngsters that didn’t get Playskool’s My First I.D. Forger for Christmas can whiz around the half-mile outdoor track in a 9-horsepower Sprint kart, which keeps little riders safely strapped in with a four-point, race-style harness. Blinking battalions of arcade machines stand guard over a game room underscored by the din of clacking pool balls, and a snack bar sates cravings with corn dogs, cotton candy, and popcorn.
