If you are looking for a fun family friendly activity you are going want to check out Xhilaracing Electric Go-Karting (now operating as Full Throttle Indoor Karting) located in Florence, KY. We had the opportunity to take our boys and it was so much fun! Best of all it is a zero-emissions electric karts facility! There were no toxic fumes or odors. XhilaRacing indoor electric go karting is the perfect place for racing enthusiasts, thrill seekers and families looking for exhilarating entertainment.
Every ride is thrilling with the ability to reach speeds of up to 45 miles per hour (adults) and 25 miles per hour (youth) on their 1/4-mile state-of-the-art track. Each eight-minute race allows drivers to race against the clock, attempting to achieve their best lap time. Now if you think that 8 minutes is not long enough it is longer than you think. You get hot in your helmet but also you hands get tired and so taking a break in between sessions would be something that we would suggest.
Our number one concern was is this safe for our kids? However we found it to be not only be safe but also a lot of fun! The go karts are clean and the facility is too! You watch a brief educational video before driving and then you are provided a hair protector, helmet and neck brace. The Xtreme Karts are fully adjustable and are designed for ultimate speed and safety, plus they offer less noise, less odor and no exhaust. This was something we loved!
