What You'll Get
|_Jump to: Reviews||Racing 101_|
When seasonal depression causes your car to lock all its doors and choke down the keys, your body will need a new way to get its driving ya-yas out. Today’s Groupon gets you a day of four racing sessions (up to a $66 value) and a yearlong membership ($30 value) to Sykart Indoor Racing Center in Tukwila for $40. Experience more velocity than a rousing round of Velocity Ball as you apply your hard-earned Mario Karting skills to real life.
Indoor racing delivers all the competitive action of outdoor racing without the rain, snow, and rampant product placement for delicious, refreshing products such as Mountain Dew Slammin’ Blue Blast. Sykart Indoor Racing puts you in control of a 6.5-horsepower SodiKart with as much neighing vigor and towing capacity as nearly seven horses. The friendly staff will also outfit you with a fully hygienic racing helmet. During four 10-minute races, you will test your abilities on a full track against as many as 10 other cruisers. Compete for the honor of your family sigil, for the sheer jazz of victory, and for the fastest time—which will graduate you to the praiseworthy 9-horsepower kart, capable of achieving 45 mph and beyond.
Much more thrilling than pushing quarters into a stationary arcade racing game, Sykart driving delivers the visceral experience of revved-up gasoline, rubber tearing against track, and wind rushing through a sanitarily protected helmet. Your membership also guarantees you:
- discounted racing
- a free hygienic helmet liner
- a free birthday session to be used within one week of your special day
All four sessions must be used in a single day. Activate your membership at Sykart Indoor Racing Center. Remember to bring a valid driver’s license or permit before driving indoors.
Having only recently opened its Tukwila location, Sykart is still waiting for more reviews to come in. In the meantime, a handful of Yelpers give the indoor racing four stars: > * It’s nice to be able to drive fast occasionally in Seattle! – Amy L. > * The track is large and filled with plenty of challenging turns and the carts are fast and very responsive. The staff is efficient and uber-observant with safety in mind – Jammypac B. > * It’s fun, exciting, and a lot of people don’t know about it – Jalal Z.

About SyKart Indoor Racing Center
Firmly belted into one of two models of Sodikart go-karts, racers work on smoothly navigating turns and straightaways as they travel at speeds of up to 40 miles per hour. SyKart Indoor Racing Center encourages visitors to embrace the adrenaline rushes and the g-forces of a competitive race, but safety remains its number-one priority. The staff members limit the number of karts to 12–15 for each race, and they require all participants to wear DOT-approved motorcycle helmets with protective visors. Additionally, they dole out racing tips and keep vigilant watch throughout the contests to ensure that drivers obey the rules.
After each race, the participants receive a printout with each of their lap times, which they can use to compare with friends or apply for a job as the Rock’s chauffeur. Pool tables, arcade games, and drink vending machines also help guests pass the time between events.
