A generation has grown up playing Mario Kart and wondered, “why can’t real life go-carting be this fun?” A trip to a go-cart track can be a blast but, the flat loops don’t offer the same excitement as the classic video game. Well, for Ontario residents the wait is just months away for some next level go-carting.
Clifton Hill in Niagara Falls has been undergoing a complete revitalisation project in hopes of raising tourism. The plan includes a 4D theatre and a zombie exhibit but, the highlight is the construction of North America’s largest elevated go-cart track.
425,920 lbs of steel have been brought in to construct a multi-level corkscrew, hairpin turns, and high-speed downhill straight away. The coaster style track is the first of its kind in Canada, and the website defines the attraction as “go-carts on steroids.”
HOCO Ltd., who has been overseeing the project assure that everything is a go for a spring grand opening- as soon as the weather permits. More information about official dates should be coming down the pipeline in March.
