Despite their productive habits, worker bees' dull demeanor keeps them unpopular among 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 to Xtreme Indoor Karting, on Powerline Road. Choose between two options:
- For $22, you get a one-year membership, which includes a one-year race license, two eight-minute races (including one on your birthday), a head sock, and racing discounts throughout the year (a $49.50 value).
- For $16, you get an eight-minute race, a one-year race license, and a head sock (up to a $32 value).
This 90,000-square-foot temple of entertainment provides patrons with a multifaceted buffet of amusements, and both of today's deal options give Groupon-grabbers amplified access to the facility's racing track. 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 velocities of up to 45 mph on the half-mile asphalt track. After each 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, cruise high-speed wireless Internet, or talk strategy with a golem constructed from cocktail olives. Stylish head socks up the fashion factor while making feet and puppets jealous.

- An all-in-one extravaganza that's pretty much heaven for a young adult male with a lot of expendable adrenaline. – Tara Nieuwesteeg, New Times Broward-Palm Beach
- The karts are quick, the course is simple enough for those who don't have experience on a race track, and a hell of a lot of fun for those who know how to handle a steering wheel. – Chris C., Yelp, 9/23/08
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.
