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 to Tri-State Speedway. Choose between the following options:
- For $20, you get an unlimited wristband for all-day access to mini golf, mini karts, bumper cars, and the play place (a $25 value), and 40 arcade tokens (a $10 value, for a $35 total value).
- For $30, you get an annual membership license (a $10 value), a five-race go-kart package (up to a $55 value), and 20 arcade tokens (a $5 value, for up to a $70 value).
Tri-State Speedway's two floors support indoor racing, mini golf, and arcade machines. A 2,200-square-foot speedway, equipped with an accurate timing system that ranks race participants, forces drivers to take 10 turns and floor it down two straightaways in electric karts with 15 horsepower motors, dual rear disk brakes, and four-point seat harnesses. Three billiards tables and various video and arcade games titillate token holders, and the bumper-car rink massages road rage into road goo (see height and weight restrictions here). The Islands 18-hole, indoor mini-golf course gives you 18 places to hide eggs. The mini karts, designed for ages 4 and up, keep racing safe with a looped course, and the play place serves as a plastic jungle for children to romp through and enact martial law.
Next to the upstairs racing floor, The Hut hands frosty drinks, treats, and snacks to racers-in-waiting, and downstairs, amid myriad entertainment options, Drafters sports café serves cold beverages and tasty fare such as wings, pizzas, and fried chalkboard erasers.
Tires squeal and a 15-horsepower engine hums as its driver cuts through a narrow turn, shaving fractions of a second off the lap. Below the track, a colorful golf ball winds through faux island trees, avoiding walls and stops on its way to an awaiting hole. It's another day at Tri-State Speedway, a multileveled family entertainment center littered with motorized fun for patrons of any age. The upstairs, 22,000-square-foot go-kart track hosts competitive races with karts calibrated for speeds of up to 25 miles per hour. A walk downstairs leads to the island-themed, 9-hole mini-golf course nestled among a large video-game arcade featuring top-of-the-line games, a 1200 sq. ft. play place, bowling lanes, bumper cars, and billiard tables. There's also a roller rink. When fun gives way to hunger, Drafters Sports Cafe's servers and cooks serve finger-friendly pub bites, ice-cold beer, and paper napkins fashioned from losing basketball brackets.
