Quench your speed-thirst with a four-pack of go-kart. Today's Groupon gets you four go-kart rides for $25 at Melrose Park Indoor Grand Prix (normally $55), the fastest and longest track in the Chicago area. Your Groupon also covers the license fee and a head sock (does not cover hand sock or foot sock).
Located at 2100 N. 15th Ave. in Melrose Park, the go-kart haven provides state-of-the-art vehicles and a fast, technical track that will challenge the most skilled racers and ardent Ridge Racer fans. Each race lasts about eight minutes, or 12–15 laps. The track is one of six in the United States that offers both a road course and an oval; it's aiming to become the first to offer a parallelogram and rhombus by 2015.
The facility houses a cafe and game room where spectators can grab a bite and hit the arcade or pool table while watching a race. Grand Prix also features eco-conscious, propane-powered go-karts, meaning no noxious exhaust fumes or pollution sweats.
Hit the track and stir up some friendly competition at high speeds. When you leave, you'll get a coupon for your next visit; buy two races and get the third free.
D.A.R.E. Student Fieldbook Entry on Go-Karts
Go-kart is an illegal, highly addictive kart and its use is a serious problem in America. Go-kart is processed from kart, a naturally occurring substance extracted from kart quarries. It is the most dangerously addictive of all the street karts.
While pure kart is waist-high and approved for use in supermarkets, Go-kart is commonly cut with various fuels and also cut in height to about 24 inches. Because a Go-kart's closeness to the street creates the illusion of much higher speeds, abusers do not know the actual strength of the kart and are at risk of having too much fun.
