Massive Mario Kart-Inspired Go-Kart Track Now Open in Niagara Falls

Drivers, start your engines — a massive, roller coaster-like go-kart racetrack is now open in Niagara Falls, Ont.

Tourism company HOCO Limited unveiled its new “Niagara Speedway” attraction on the Clifton Hill entertainment strip this week.

“It’s like go-karts on steroids,” said Harry Oakes, HOCO’s president, in a statement. “You drive on a road course for a portion of the race and then spiral up … to about 40 feet, and then come down a long hill … kind of like the way a wooden coaster would be.”

While most go-kart tracks stick to solid ground, the speedway features a 12-metre spiral that winds up into the sky, and then spins down into a track that features loads of twists and turns.

The company is calling it the only one of its kind in Canada, with a track that consists of 1,500 cubic metres of concrete, and 193,600 kilograms of steel.

Tickets cost $12 per driver and $4 per passenger for a five-minute race.
