The Craziest Real Life Mario Kart Is Coming To Houston This Month

Mushroom Rally is coming to Houston this month.

Playing Mario Kart with your friends is arguably one of the best ways to spend your time. If you've ever had the burning desire to take the game to a real race track, well now's your chance. The insane Mushroom Rally is coming to Houston this month and you will get your chance to race your way to Las Vegas for the Mushroom National Championship!

In Houston, there will be three dates to participate in this ultimate "Go Karting with a Twist" experience. On Saturday, May 18th, Sunday, May 19th, and Saturday, May 25th, all starting at 9 AM, you can come out to K1 Speed and fight for a chance to win in one of three categories. If you have the fastest lap time in your city, collect the most stars in your city, or win the lottery, you'll be one of the 20 that take the trip to Vegas and compete in the National Championship.

All you have to do to join in on this crazy fun experience is purchase a ticket! Tickets range from $40 - $50 in price depending on which race you participate in on the day you go. With a purchased ticket you'll also be entered to win the lottery automatically! So your chances of winning in one of three categories just got better. There is also a minimum height requirement of 58" and if you're an adult, a maximum of 300 lbs and 6'7" in height is mandated. 

Possibly the best part of the whole thing is that you get to dress up as your favorite character from the Mario games. Luigi, Yoshi, and Princess Peach are just some of the many costumes available, and it's all included in your ticket! Throughout the day there will be tons of chances to win small prizes, so you'll be leaving a winner no matter what. And don't forget to take a photo with one of the many Instagram-worthy photo ops!
