The first go-kart-racing track was a circle because it was designed to teach children how centripetal force feels without rolling them down hills in tires. Learn circularly with today's Groupon: for $29, you get eight go-kart rides and 40 arcade tokens at The Alley (up to a $65.92 value).
The Alley accelerates fun with bowling, arcade games, and 16,000 square feet of indoor go-kart track. Grip the wheel of your own individual vehicle to tackle tight turns and careen down long stretches of horizontal adrenaline as you race friends, strangers, or Vin Diesels. The Alley prides itself on welcoming guests to a clean, safe environment as well as an odor- and fume-free racing area, where adults ride in Indy cars and smaller drivers at least 43 inches tall and over age 5 put the pedal to the metal in rookie cars. A glimmering cache of forty arcade tokens can be used by young ones to enjoy game-room japery or by adults as a visual aid for counting-to-40 presentations at work.
Though The Alley sometimes features discounted prices online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
The Alley Indoor Entertainment
Inside of a 62,000-square-foot arena, The Alley Indoor Entertainment orchestrates an endless labyrinth of entertainment options including 32 bowling lanes, an electric go-kart raceway, classic and modern arcade games, and billiards tables. The slick assortment of bowling boulevards includes eight cosmic lanes that stay aglow for 24 hours each day. The fume-free racing area spans 16,000 square feet of the facility, allowing racers to compete on a track as large as the average mansion of a Full House fan-fiction writer. In the Back Alley Sports Grill, bowlers, racers, and pool players gather under the glow of two 20-foot projection TVs in addition to flat-screen sets to enjoy concessions such as pizza and soft drinks.
