The Niagara Speedway Revs Up to an Action-Packed Start

Reading Time:  2 minutes -

At 5:00 pm on Thursday, May 24th, 2018, the Niagara Speedway finally opened its doors to an excited crowd of travelers from all around the world ready to be part of the action. Since that day, things haven’t slowed down. We have seen crowds of people daily arrive at North America’s largest elevated go-kart track facility to test their driving skills, thanks to word of mouth advertising and all the media hype. Several media chains have linked us to being similar to “Mario Kart”, and while that definitely fueled the drive to our website views and to our establishment itself, we are in no way affiliated with this, but honoured with the comparison.

We are grateful for these first couple of months so far, and we look forward to seeing more potential growth in sales as the season progresses into the Fall. We will continue to remain open for as long as Mother Nature and business levels allow us to, and then re-open come the Spring. If the weather cooperates we could potentially keep running for part of the Winter (cross your fingers for a seasonally warm November/December). Stay up-to-date with our Hours of Operation, as it continues to get updated as each new month approaches.
