Stretching across approximately 700 acres of land hemmed in by forest, New Jersey Motorsports Park lets patrons quench their thirsts for speed by drinking in the view of three curvy tracks. After a safety briefing, karting fans wriggle into the park's included helmets and racing suits, seize the wheel of a mini racer, and roar off to begin two trips on the Wildcat track, hugging turns and listening for the sonic boom that indicates they've hit 40 miles per hour. The 15-minute sessions include the day license (a $10 value) necessary for legal kart operation; racers can get their fix Tuesday–Thursday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Friday–Sundays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Those who opt for the Superbike ride-along start their sport-motorcycle package with a safety briefing and instructional session with included equipment. Afterward, patrons will join professional motorcycle racer Glen Goldman and whiz through the 2.25-mile Thunderbolt track or 1.9-mile Lightning raceway at up to 150 miles per hour. During the five laps, riders will experience the same adrenaline-brewing acceleration and knee-rubbing cornering felt by pro racers and uncoordinated sprinters around the world. Along with a video card and postadventure photograph to show off to friends, the package includes all necessary rental riding gear—helmet, boots, and leather suit. Backseat bikers can experience the forces of G on one of the following dates: Saturday, October 1; Sunday, October 2; Saturday, October 15; Sunday, October 16; and Sunday, October 30.
New Jersey Motorsports Park
Ripe with competition, the atmosphere surrounding New Jersey Motorsports Park provides ample activities suited for South Jersey families. One part of the park is Battlegrounds Paintball—the facility's paintball fields that aim to not only give players a paintball game, but a unique paintball experience. Situated on 10 acres of land, adventurous souls aged 10 and older can partake in splattering game styles, ranging from capture-the-flag to organized scenarios.
At the other part of the park—from spring through late fall—the track’s major events entice fans young and old and range from open-wheel racing to go-karting. With little to no experience, amateur drivers can arrive and drive at the Tempest Raceway, which sends similarly skilled drivers careening around the bends of a track that features six different configurations and 11 prime spots to throw a well-aimed koopa shell at the competition.
