Niagara Falls' "Mario Kart" Style Race Track Is Now Officially Open
Prepare the blue shells.
Get your banana peels ready — the long-anticipated Niagara Speedway is now officially open in Niagara Falls' Clifton Hill district.
HOCO Limited, the company behind the Mario Kart-esque attraction, initially announced its opening date as June 1, but also stated that an early launch in mid- to late May was still possible. It seems that the latter ended up being the case, with the race track opening its doors on May 24, 2018 at 5 pm.
The Niagara Speedway is the first of its kind in Canada, taking up a full three-acre lot. It features a three-storey corkscrew and undulating downhill ramp, which makes it a truly exciting go-karting experience.
While there are no blue shells or lightning strikes, the race track's unique form will make you feel like you're riding in real-life Mario Kart.
Prices for the attraction were released earlier this month and are as follows:
- Driver: $12.00 for a five-min race
- Passenger: $4.00 for a five-min race
In addition to the Niagara Speedway, other attractions such as the Game Zone (which is affiliated with the iconic Great Canadian Midway) has also opened.
Looks like it's time to plan a trip to Niagara Falls!
