After a safety training session, guests steer electric go-karts down a quarter-mile indoor track. Each race typically lasts for 8 to 10 minutes and ends whenever one of the drivers becomes the first to complete 12 laps.
Rather than resort to gasoline, steam, or sled dogs on summer vacation, Speed Raceway channels the power of electricity to fuel its go-karts. These neon-green vehicles don't sacrifice velocity for eco-friendliness—they hit speeds of up to 43 mph on the track and have even greater torque than their gas-dependent counterparts. They're not the stars at the F-1 style racing arena, though. That honor belongs to the drivers, who strive to lap each other during exhilarating races.
Almost anyone can zoom down the track in pursuit of first place. Adults enroll in 12- to 14-lap races, whereas juniors (guests 13 and younger) complete 9 laps in specialized go-karts. The raceway also hosts events such as birthday parties and corporate team-building sessions. Scores are posted after each race and online, encouraging drivers to practice and improve their times.
