It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for: the opening date of Niagara Falls’ new real-life Mario Kart track has been confirmed.

“The Niagara Falls Speedway is aiming for a June 1st opening,” said a spokesperson from Clifton Hill in an email to Daily Hive Toronto.

However, the opening could come sooner, as Niagara speedway says Memorial Day Weekend (May 26 to 28) is the ultimate goal.

The Niagara Speedway is expected to open in Spring 2018.

The new track, is not only the largest elevated go-cart track facility in North America but also the first of its kind in Canada, making this a must-try activity for all Torontonians.

Boasting a 40-foot elevated spiral track that drops down an undulated ramp into a race course, driving on the Niagara Speedway will make you feel like you’re cruising on a real-life Mario Kart track.

“The Niagara Speedway is a marriage of traditional go-karts with the added fun and excitement of an elevated coaster styled track. Drivers get to test their driving skills along the straightaway, negotiate the hair-pin turns, and climb the elevated ramp as they head for the checkered flag,” wrote Clifton Hill in the video description.

Stay tuned for updates as we get closer to the opening.
