RPM Raceway is America’s ultimate all-electric indoor go-kart and entertainment destination, providing an authentic, exhilarating and memorable racing experience second only to climbing into an actual race car. RPM Raceway’s electric go-karts are designed to give you a taste of the challenge of formula racing and the best way to learn more about our karts is to race them. Come to RPM Raceway and get the high-RPM experience.
What you’ll do
RPM Raceway believes that anyone can be a driver. No stoplights, speed limits or lanes. Whether gunning it through our lightning fast straightaways, or finding the apex of each hairpin turn, RPM Raceway’s fastest lap racing format will elevate your adrenaline level as you accelerate through its quarter mile European-style racetracks in high-performance, Italian-made go-karts capable of speeds up to 45 MPH+. Race head-to-head against your friends during Arrive and Drive, gather a group of 8+ for a competitive 2, 3 or 4 race event, host a personal celebration race or put your skills to the test among the very best during our year-round racing leagues. Grab a helmet, get behind the wheel and drive like a pro.
- Go the Distance: Push the limits of recreational kart speeds. Don’t lose time in the corners, master the braking zones. Use the brakes at the right moment to lose as little time as possible in the corner. Punch it and explode out of the turn and down the straightaway. These are skills that any pro has mastered. Our go-karts give you the ability to try these skills out for yourself. And they’re safe enough for drivers with no racing experience. Our karts can be electronically controlled in case someone decides to play demolition derby. And because they’re electric, our karts are also emission-free. So don’t worry about the fumes or special clothing. All you need is closed toed shoes.
- Recharge Your Batteries: Racing works up quite an appetite. Whether you need a snack between races or catering for your pit crew, we’ve got you covered.
- Press Play: Choose from a variety of arcade games, from time-honored classics to the latest in video game technology. Get a game card and play the day away.We offer the most realistic and top-notch racing experiences. In addition to our state-of-the-art karts, you can also test your skills and get the feeling of driving an actual race car at top speeds on our unique racing simulator. You can either get behind the wheel or ride-along in the two passenger seats.

Do you need to be experienced to race: No prior racing experience is needed. All racers will view a safety video prior to racing to brief them on how to operate a kart, rules and guidelines of the track.
Can adults and children race together: Due to state regulations we are not able to race adult karts and junior karts on the track at the same time. We separate racers into 3 categories – junior, non-licensed adults and licensed adults. All are separate categories and race with others of the like.
