What You'll Get
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 $15, you get two eight-minute races at RushHour Karting in Garner (a $40 value). A helmet and neck brace are included in the Groupon price, and a mandatory head sock costs an additional $2. Before arriving, check the calendar for track availability.
At RushHour Karting, speed demons can kart to their spleens' content, regardless of the weather, on a challenging indoor track—a 1/3-mile course that fills up drivers' adrenaline tanks with hairpin curves, winding turns, and high-speed straights. New Sodi RX7 karts with 6.5-horsepower engines and improved safety features reach race speeds of up to 40 mph, offering an adult-size dose of acceleration exhilaration for drivers 16 and older, and separately raced junior karts provide more manageable speeds for drivers 8–15 years old and at least 48 inches tall. Today's deal gets each driver onto the track for two eight-minute heats, providing an ample cure for the toe tingles that come with lead foot.
Visitors who prefer their entertainment stationary can try their skills at the game room and gaze upon their friends' racing glory from a perch atop the observation deck. Before settling your longstanding alligators vs. crocodiles argument on the track, check out RushHour's safety precautions and general procedures.

About RushHour Karting
The European-designed go-karts at RushHour Karting mean business. At no-nonsense speeds of up to 40 mph, they fly around a 1/3-mile indoor track that remains open year round and boasts an observation deck and real pit lines. Overhead, digital projections display racers' track times. Drivers refuel at The Pizza Pit, where cooks whip up gourmet burgers, hot dogs, and salads, serving them amid the glow of seven high-definition plasmas and a 123" high-definition projector.
