An Indoor Summer Activity for Kids and Adults

When you’re looking to beat the heat and enjoy a fun indoor summer activity that both adults and kids can enjoy, nothing comes close to go kart racing at K1 Speed.

Here’s why we’re your number one destination when it’s just too darn hot to do anything outside:

Our Go Kart Racing is Indoors

We wouldn’t be a good indoor summer activity if we were outdoors! All K1 Speed tracks are located indoors, and most in air-conditioned facilities. This means you’ll stay cool during those hot summer days. Plus, you’ll protect yourself from harmful UV rays while people are working on their sunburn outside. Experiencing a humid, rainy day in summer? We’ve literally got you covered then as well.

Both Kids and Adults Enjoy Racing Go Karts

Let’s face it. Sometimes parents have to bite the bullet and sacrifice their fun for something their child enjoys. We’ve all tried to force as a smile as we endure a horrible children’s movie or a trip to the kiddie amusement park. Why not go somewhere where you both can experience equal enjoyment? K1 Speed is thrilling for both kids and adults alike, and there’s an electric kart for both of them! Juniors at least 48” or taller will enjoy our junior karts which travel up to 20mph! While teens and adults at least 58” (4’10”) can zip up to 45mph in our larger, adult karts.

 

Here’s why electric karts win vs gas karts. 

This Indoor Summer Activity is More Engaging Than the Movies

Movies are one of the most common indoor activities, and sure, it’s fun. But you also don’t really interact with your friends or family, either. You sit quietly together for a couple of hours before you can start engaging with each other – but by then you’re back in the hot outdoors.

When you race at K1 Speed, you’re enjoying wheel-to-wheel racing with your friends. You may not be talking, but your action on track is your conversation. Then, once you leave the kart you won’t believe how fast you’ll be talking with the adrenaline that’ll be surging through your veins.

When you’re waiting for your next race, you’ll want to discuss your experience. You’ll re-hash the race, talk about passes on track, compare lap times and share notes. All under the comfort of our roof.

There’s More Than Just One Indoor Summer Activity to Enjoy

While there’s no doubt the main attract at K1 Speed is our superb indoor go-karting experience, there’s still plenty to do when you’re not behind the wheel. Our arcade entertains children young and old with a mix of video games and analog games such as billiards, air-hockey, and foosball.

If you’re near our Orlando location, you can enjoy our mini-bowling experience. At Addison? Catch a game of CyberSport! Or visit the only place in the United States that has the cutting-edge Mario Kart VR arcade game at K1 Speed Irvine!

Ice-Cold Beverages and Tasty Food

After a day of go-karting and playing games, you’ll work up an appetite and will want something nice and cool to lower your body temperature.

That’s why our locations feature a Pit Café or Paddock Lounge, so you can recharge after racing. Our Pit Café offers snacks and refreshing beverages, while our Paddock Lounge offers a full range of meal options in addition to wine, beer, shakes, and smoothies.

An Indoor Summer Activity That’s Also a Physical Sport 

The problem with most indoor summer activities is that they aren’t very physical. But if you were looking for a physical activity this summer that gets your blood pumping but prefer to stay indoors and away from the sun, then go-karting is an excellent choice!

If you’ve never tried go-karting at K1 Speed, you’ll be surprised at just how much of a workout it is.  Your heart rate increases, a sweat develops, and you’ll feel g-forces when hustling the go kart around our track. Not to mention the workout your arms and legs will encounter while steering, braking, and accelerating. There’s no power steering here!

So, beat the heat and enjoy our fine indoor summer activities at K1 Speed where the party will be going strong seven days a week to satisfy your need for speed.

      Hello, Nil! We only allow trained service animals at our US locations. You must retain control of the animal at all times and they will need to be on a leash or harness while on the premises. Hope to see you at the track soon!
