Despite their productive habits, worker-bees' dull demeanor keeps them unpopular amongst insects, while the mirth-beetle remains beloved thanks to its carefree attitude and steady supply of stolen honey. Avoid the dangers of all work and no play with today's Groupon, which opens up a world of recreational possibilities at Xtreme Indoor Karting on Powerline Road. Choose from two options:
- $20 for a one-year membership, good for race discounts, two complimentary eight-minute races (including one on your birthday), an arcade race-license, and a head-sock (a $49.50 value)
- $10 for one hour of arcade games and a round of mini-golf (a $21.95 value)
Xtreme Indoor Karting provides patrons with a multifaceted buffet of amusements, from fleet-wheeled karts to interactive video games. One-year membership gives Groupon-grabbers a wide range of access to the facility's racing track and arcade games. Like staring contests on the backs of cheetahs, the facility's 40 European Bowman race-karts offer the irresistible combination of high speeds and friendly competition, allowing drivers to hit speeds of up to 45 mph on the half-mile asphalt track. After the race—which can last from 8 to 30 minutes, or from 20 to 50 laps—drivers can break down their performance using a race analysis, then hit the Finish Line Sports Bar to watch the big game, shoot pool, or talk race strategy with a golem constructed from cocktail olives.
For folks who choose the second deal-option, an 18-hole indoor mini-golf course keeps the high-velocity vibe going with a racing theme, while an arcade stocked with more than 100 games ranging from NASCAR simulators to Pac-Man lets joystick-jockeys keep hand-eye coordination at a Wimbledon level.
A 90,000-square-foot temple of entertainment, Xtreme Indoor Karting is a perfect destination for birthday parties, bar mitzvahs, and high-speed marriage proposals. In between races or arcade conquests, refuel your torso-engine with a bite at the Fast Track Café, get outfitted for future kart adventures at the Xtreme Pro Shop, or take advantage of the facility's high-speed wireless Internet to research the latest in race-related taunts.
Children must be at least 8 years old and 54 inches tall to race. Children under 16 must complete a race evaluation ($26.50).

Xtreme Indoor Karting
Xtreme Indoor Karting's 90,000-square-foot facility buzzes with the energy of Bowman Arrow karts as they whiz between the checkered flags that line the railing of the indoor go-kart track. All sporting Honda engines, three kart models take to the half-mile asphalt stage where child and adult racers show off their skills, reaching speeds of up to 45 miles per hour. The racing theme pervades the facility, including the 18 holes of the indoor miniature golf course, which are peppered with half tires and watered with tears of joy from past Indy 500 winners. More than 100 different interactive games—including racing simulators—flicker inside the arcade, and rows of billiards tables line the black-and-white checkered floors of the Finish Line Sports Bar. Charged with fueling all of these activities, the kitchen staff at the Fast Track Café whip together burgers, wraps, and pizzas. For kid's-only entertainment, the staff supervise a day camp throughout the summer months, when all of the country's teachers traditionally lose their keys to the school.
