Mario Kart fans, all your hopes and dreams are coming true. Well, some of them at least.
If you’ve ever walked around Clifton Hill in Canada’s Niagara Falls, you know it’s chock full of tourist traps and family-friendly activities such as the Guinness World of Records and Ripley’s Believe It Or Not. The tourist attraction hotspot is also about to become the new home of a racetrack described as “Mario-Kart-esque.”
HOCO Limited is putting the finishing touches on “Niagara Speedway,” the first attraction of its kind in Canada and the largest in North America. This isn’t the same old go-kart track. This massive raceway includes a four-story corkscrew as well as multiple elevated coaster sections. The design is very similar to that of go-kart paths at The Tracks in Branson in Missouri.
For now, it’s the closest you’re ever going to get to being in a real-life Mario Kart scenario, minus the turtle shells.
The complex will take up over ten acres along Victoria Avenue and includes a pedestrian walkway and 750-car parking lot.
The racetrack is currently being tested to make sure you don’t, you know, go flying off the fourth floor on a hairpin turn. HOCO hopes to have the track open for driving in the spring of 2018.
