Hold onto your hats, or helmets, because Niagara's real-life Mario style race track is going to be opening up again soon. You won't need to sit in front of your television to get some racing thrills, you can experience the real deal at this twisting track that's straight out of our favourite Nintendo games. The Niagara Speedway's opening date is this spring, and you'll want to get behind the wheel of one of the karts. 

The speedway, which opened in 2018, is Canada's first elevated go-kart racetrack.

The entire course stretches across four acres of land and you can zoom around a four-storey spiral and two-tiered ramp that will take you on a rollercoaster-like ride.

The colourful karts can reach a speed of 32 km/h.

The speedway closed for the winter season, but luckily, its return is in sight.

Narcity has been informed that the track plans to open for March Break, which begins on March 14 this year.

Of course, since Canadian winters are anything but predictable, the company warns that this date is tentative and weather-permitting.

You and your friends can fly around the racetrack Mario-style for a fun and thrilling outing.

Each kart can hold up to two people, so you don't have to ride solo.

Tickets cost $12 per driver and $4 per rider for each five-minute race.

You can also live out your racing dreams at Canada's longest go-kart track in Etobicoke. The Toronto Mini-Indy is also closed for the winter, but will hopefully reopen soon.

There's another Mario-style racetrack in Quebec, which will take you on a 1.4-kilometre adventure down a mountain.

Keep an eye on Niagara Speedway's website to find out about opening day updates. In the meantime, it looks like you'll have to enjoy Mario from the comfort of your home.
