A Cool Bachelor Party Idea: Go Kart Racing

When you or your buddy is getting hitched, we know there’s tons of cool bachelor party ideas to choose from. However, rarely do these party ideas incorporate an activity that gets your adrenaline pumping and heart racing. But there’s one cool bachelor party destination that ticks all of these boxes and more. Indoor go kart racing at K1 Speed.

Why Indoor Go Kart Racing is a Cool Bachelor Party Idea

There are several reasons why indoor go kart racing is a cool bachelor party idea. Here’s three of those reasons:

1. A Perfect Activity for the Thrill-Seeking Groom

If the groom loves cars, racing, sports, or roller coasters, then he’s going to love racing at K1 Speed. Thanks to its instant torque, our electric go karts fly up to 45mph in a matter of seconds. Now 45mph may not sound crazy, we get that. But when you’re sitting an inch above the ground on a twisty go kart track, it feels like you’re going over 100.

Believe it or not, go kart racing is a super physical activity. You’re going to feel everything a real racing driver feels. In fact, most professional racers start in go karts very similar to what you’ll drive at K1 Speed. Our karts have zero power steering, so you’ll wrestle the wheel and work out those arms. When taking a corner at speed, you’ll feel the g-forces pushing and pulling you just like in a race car. The result is a decent amount of cardio that’s capable of burning more calories than jogging!

And because our karts do not produce emissions, you don’t have to worry about smelling like exhaust when you go to your next bachelor party destination.

2. A Fun Competition Among Friends

When you race go karts at K1 Speed with your closest friends, don’t be surprised to see some of the competitive spirit of your group come out. That quiet guy in your group may be a beast on the track!

Every lap is timed at K1 Speed. The driver with the fastest lap time at the end of the race is the winner. All of the karts are identical – it’s down to the individual driver to get the best from it.

At the end of the race, each driver receives a scoresheet detailing all of their lap times in addition to the final standings. This is when you can compare notes with your friends, share tips, and laugh about the experience you all shared at once.

3. The Groom Won’t Get into Trouble

Go karting is good, clean fun and doesn’t involve anything that may get the groom in trouble with the missus afterwards. This means the fiancé won’t mind, which is a big plus. After all, they’re going to have to learn “happy wife, happy life” soon enough.

Not Just a Bachelor Party Idea, But a Bachelor Party Destination

Weather Won’t Ruin Your Day

Did we mention that K1 Speed is indoors? Don’t worry about rain, cold weather, hot weather, snow, or any other of mother natures’ weapons sabotaging your time at K1 Speed. You’re shielded from the outside when racing with us. So, no matter when your bachelor party takes place, we’ve literally got you covered.

Our Arcade Keeps the Action Going

Go karting isn’t the only thing to do during a bachelor party at K1 Speed. Our locations feature an arcade, ranging from some pool tables to a video game arcade. Many other locations feature both video games AND pool tables, plus air hockey and other old-school entertainment.


Some K1 Speed destinations offer unique attractions exclusive to that location:


  • Orlando: this location features Mini-Bowling in addition to its arcade.



  • Portland: this location features one of our largest collections of video games


  • Irvine: racers here can enjoy VR Zone Portal – a state of the art virtual reality arcade featuring the acclaimed Mario Kart Arcade GP VR!

Party Rooms Available

Each K1 Speed features at least one private party room so you can spend time with your group in your own space. This also opens the door to other great bachelor party activities:

Present a Slideshow or Movie as a Tribute to the Groom

We have full A/V capabilities in our party rooms, so you can create a Bachelor Party video/slideshow displaying memories with the groom from over the years. Try to include a picture of each friend with groom at some point and share some stories!

Catering Options Available to Minimize Logistical Headaches

Don’t waste precious time going to another place just to eat. Order catering with your bachelor party event and let us take care of you and the squad! Whether you’re interested in pizza & wings or something fancier, our group events department can order the type of food you’re drooling about.

If your group is smaller and you’re not looking to get your own party room, simply stop by our on-site Pit Café or Paddock Lounge for a light refreshment and snack while you loudly boast about how badly you beat the other groomsmen.

Time for Uncensored Toasts!

Most of the groom’s friends won’t have an opportunity to say something at the wedding. And those that will have a spot, won’t say anything too risqué around his friend’s close family.

Having your own bachelor party toasts in our party room means speeches can be PG-13 or R, offensive, and FUN. And anyone can get up and say something! The best man can even give an alternate speech they wouldn’t want to give at the wedding.

Enjoy Bachelor Party Games

Our private rooms also allow you chance at playing some bachelor party games. Here’s a couple you can try with your group

  • “Never Have I Ever”
  • Bachelor Bingo
  • Cards Against Humanity
  • Never Again
  • Bachelor Jeopardy
