When the Trans-Canada Highway Act of 1948 was passed, the system's designers envisioned a lawless, death-race arena where only the fastest could avoid being killed by mechanical gulls. Experience a thrilling fraction of this racing dream with today's Groupon to Westside Go Karts in Westbank. Choose between the following options:
- For $14, you get two single-kart races (up to a $28 value).
- For $25, you get two performance-kart races (up to a $50 value).
Westside Go Karts revs up races with a range of steerable steeds dispatched on a picturesque course. Chauffeurs wind around four hairpin and four banked turns in eight-minute races for a demanding thrill ride worthy of Keanu Reeves's stunt double. Single karts transfer drivers 53 inches and taller at speeds of up to 35 kilometres per hour, and performance karts up the ante to 60 kilometres per hour. Momentum manoeuvrists of the latter model must be fully licensed drivers and are required to bring their own helmets or purchase a hollowed watermelon for $5. Wee ones shorter than 53 inches can substitute a kiddy kart, which runs on a separate track from its older cousins at speeds up to 7 kilometres per hour. Channel the need for alacrity while gazing at vistas of Okanagan Lake, wineries, and the surrounding mountains. Motorists can also challenge adversaries to a complimentary game of mini golf or clamber up a tree-fort playground and claim uncharted branches in the name of the Queen.
Westside Go Karts
Surrounded by rolling mountains and the shimmering waters of Okanagan Lake, packs of go-karts spend their days chasing each other around Westside Go Karts’ challenging track. Westside Go Karts allows adult karts to navigate four hairpin and four banked turns at various speeds—basic single and double karts can hit 35 kph, performance karts are capable of 60 kph, and Extreme karts reach velocities of up to 75 kph. Kiddie karts putter around a separate track, offering their young operators important driving tips, such as how to pass politely.
