A life-sized version of Mario Kart is the kind of idea you see in a Freddie Wong video on Youtube. It’s not an attraction you expect to happen down the street.
But if you live in Missouri, that’s just the case, and you can take a trip to Branson Tracks for a fully decked out, multi-level Mario Kart race track. Other tracks at their headquarters in Missouri include a mile-long, 4-story wooden track with a full spiral and two mini spirals (more of a self-drive roller coaster than a racing track), a converted mini golf course track with two spirals and a more traditional concrete track with banked curves and elevation changes, so you can race your own miniature Formula One race against your pals. And there’s another twist.
A new, even bigger track is opening up in Niagara Falls.
Channel your inner Italian plumber by drifting around the track at high speeds, racing your mates over up to four levels and over the elevated coaster sections.
The Niagara Falls location is due to finish construction before the harsh winter sets in and is slated to open for the start of the tourist season in 2018.
It’ll be known as the Niagara Speedway and will be the largest attraction of its kind in the whole of North America. The track is the main draw, but once you’re done with the racing, there’s also a 4D motion theater, simulators and a zombie exhibit too!
