Just don’t throw any banana peels.
Whether you prefer playing as Princess Peach, Toad, or Mario himself, things can get heated when you grab a controller and race your friends in Mario Kart. The Nintendo game is considered one of the greatest multi-player games of all time, but now players can take their competitive energy to a real race track.
The Track Family Fun amusement park in Branson, Missouri, has several courses that seem as exhilarating as the racing game. The Heavy Metal High Rise is a concrete, four-story track that is three quarters of a mile long. The Lumberjack is a wooden three-story track that takes racers through winding twists and turns. Finally there’s the Wild Woody, which has a giant wooden spiral in the center of the large four-level track. All three of these race tracks will remind you of your favorite Mario Kart classic routes.
If you’re ready to take your video game racing skills to a real track make your way to Branson, but leave the banana peels at home.
