When Eisenhower designed the Interstate Highway System, he envisioned a lawless, death-race arena where only the fastest could avoid being killed by mechanical gulls. Experience a thrilling fraction of his racing dream with today's Groupon: for $9, you get four go-kart rides (up to a $20 value) at the Rockwood Gokart Track on North University Drive.
The Rockwood Gokart Track, a part of Karting Power Sports, captures feral cars and shrinks them down to a more drivable size to offer mini-drivers a fast-paced go-karting adventure. Get discovered as the next Mario Andretti while chasing the sound barrier in one of the 12 available single-seaters or four double-seaters. Four four-minute rides ($5 each, $4 on Tuesdays) can be shared among friends or selfishly scrooged together for a total of 16 high-intensity minutes spent powersliding around slick corners and launching koopa shells at rude drivers. Kart enthusiasts who don't meet the 4'8" height requirement for driving can take advantage of Rockwood's double-seated kart models for ride-alongs.
All karts at the Rockwood Gokart Track feature safety bumpers for driver security and seat belts for strapping in test dummies. Karts—which won’t spurt dirty oil on your date’s prom dress like the family Pinto station wagon—are great for passing road tests in or for bonding with your father, who is definitely not faking those intimate, nauseated glances.
Drivers must be at least 4’8” tall. Passengers can be no shorter than 3’4”.
Rockwood Go Karts
At Rockwood Go Karts, drivers 4'8" and taller buckle up and burn rubber around the outdoor course's tight twists and serpentine turns. There's 12 colorful, single-seat go-karts to choose from, and parents can ferry their little ones (3'4" or taller) alongside them in one of four double-seat mini speed machines. Serious go-karters can also purchase parts or whole new go-karts at Rockwood Go Karts, or get their current one running again with repairs and promises of oil sandwiches.
