Melrose Park Indoor Grand Prix helps speedsters maintain healthy adrenaline levels with a pack of competitive racing karts that reach speeds of up to 42 miles per hour. Racers zip around hairpin turns and straightaways on the full indoor racing track or the short track. The propane-fueled engines keep the speed arena free of exhaust fumes while providing each kart with the power of nine propane-fueled horses. At the end of each race, drivers will be presented with a sheet displaying all individual lap times, and kartsters with a competitive streak can gauge their performance against those of other riders with the racing facility's online rankings board.
After rounds of going around, guests can caper about the 130,000-square-foot facility's café, or settle arguments over whether computers are smarter than people or just people dressed as computers with a game of pool or a bevy of arcade games.
Though Melrose Park Indoor Grad Prix features daily specials, today's Groupon still offers the best deal available.
