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 $25, you get a go-kart outing for two at Malibu Raceway in Beaverton (a $55.40 total value). The outing for two includes:
- Two five-lap racing packages (a $17.25 value each). The laps are valid only for one-passenger go-karts.
- Two photo racing licenses (a $3.50 value each). Each license comes with a free lap.
- Two all-day game-room wristbands (a $6.95 value each). Wristbands grant unlimited game-room play for all non-prize games.<p>
Malibu Raceway straps drivers into vibrant Indy-style racecars for challenging laps around a half-mile outdoor track and engages revelers with an indoor game room packed with activities for all ages. Guests with state-issued driver’s licenses (or Malibu Raceway Car Control Clinic graduates 14 and older) take the wheel of a winged Virage, whose 18-horsepower Briggs & Stratton engine and fully independent wishbone-suspension design was inspired by Formula racecars. Youngsters and aging Cabbage Patch Kids at least 4’6” may whiz around the track in a 9-horsepower Sprint kart, which keeps little riders safely strapped in with a four-point, race-style harness. Before or after completing their six total laps, racers can show off their wristband-wearing arm 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.
Our customers loved this deal last year, earning Malibu Raceway a spot on Groupon’s Best of 2011 list.
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.
