If you’ve followed my blog for a little while, you probably know I like to give my nieces experience gifts.
A few years ago, I took them on a limouisine ride to look at Christmas lights. This time when they visited during their spring break, I gave them a thrilling experience that got their adrenaline pumping – indoor go kart racing at speeds of up to 45 miles per hour!
Need for Speed
At Pole Position Raceway, as long as someone’s 48 inches tall they’re allowed to drive, so even my nine year old niece could do it.
My nephew joined my nieces and after receiving the proper safety training, it was go time! They put on their helmets, strapped into their go karts, and put the pedal to the metal!
Being a bystander is an experience in itself! You should have heard us screaming and cheering like we were at NASCAR!
My sisters and I had so much fun watching, we went back a couple of days later to experience indoor go kart racing ourselves. It was intense because the go karts go so fast and we’re so competitive.
While adventurous and fun, indoor go kart racing also ended up being a wonderful bonding experience for my family which made the gift that much better.
The green light flashes, the flags go up. Churning and burning, they yearn for the cup. – Lyrics from “The Distance” by CAKE
