Niagara Falls’ Mario Kart-style track will officially reopen this weekend

Mar 8 2022, 3:40 pm

The most epic go-kart facility around is finally reopening for the season this weekend.

Clifton Hill Niagara’s Speedway reopens at noon this Saturday, weather permitting. Reintroduce your need for speed on Canada’s first-ever elevated go-kart racecourse that gives real-life Mario Kart vibes.

According to Clifton Hill Niagara, the Speedway is a world-class attraction that combines the adrenaline-inducing thrill of kart racing with the remarkable experience of a roller coaster ride.

When you visit Clifton Hill this time around, of course, you can expect things to run a little differently. While most restrictions are lifted, masks remain mandatory.

As for the course? The track has over 2,000 linear feet of racing surface spread out over four acres that runs through a four-story helical spiral followed by a two-tiered coaster-style ramp that turns into another spiral.

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

Each five-minute race will cost drivers $12 and passengers $4. On top of the price, there are some restrictions to be aware of.

Drivers must be between 5’8″ and 7’8″. For passengers, the minimum height is 4’0″, and the maximum height is 6’0″. To carry a passenger, the driver must be 18 years or older or be the parent or legal guardian of the passenger.

Get ready for the ride of a lifetime!
