Mario Kart is a classic Nintendo 64 video game that spawned years worth of controller slamming and has probably torn some friendships apart.

(It’s that damned 8th place lightning power-up…)

Now, thanks to a mobile Quebec-based go-kart company, you can challenge your friend to Mario Kart battles in real life.

The website claims it takes two hours to turn any arena into a karting surface.

Prices vary per location and exact specifications, you know, if you want to recreate Bowser’s Castle to scale, for example.

Ekart urges kart-hopefuls to follow them on social media to see where their next pop-up Mario Kart course takes place.

Each course takes 8 to 10 minutes to complete and costs $20 per person to hit the track. Riders have to be a minimum of five feet tall to drive the kart.

Visit the Ekart Mtl website or call (438) 788-3528 for more information.

Also, the lightning power-ups that shrink your opponents are not included.
