Though well known for their go-karting, both Fun Spot locations have a huge number of other thrilling activities, including Orlando’s only wooden roller coaster, the world’s tallest SkyCoasters, arcade games, bumper boats, a carousel, a Ferris wheel and much more.
Admission to both parks is free, with pay-as-you-go and all-day pass options. Each go-kart race is $10, while the full-day pass that covers all go-kart tracks, rides and almost everything else the parks have to offer is $44.95 when purchased from Visit Orlando. What’s more, tickets purchased at one park are valid at both locations on the same day!
Buckle up and get ready for a wild ride on three exciting go-kart tracks at Magical Midway. Part of International Drive, this thrill park has a high-speed, flat concrete course and two elevated wooden courses to race on. Scared of heights? Bring along a friend! Both elevated tracks have options for single and double karts. The minimum height for the junior track is 48 inches (122cm) and 58 inches (147cm) for the other tracks.
Magical Midway has more going for it than go-karts, however. An iconic area landmark, the park’s giant Slingshot is one of the most thrilling experiences Orlando has to offer. Besides that, there’s a Starflyer, an arcade, an ice cream/pizza shop, a merry-go-round and bumper cars to boot, making this a must-see destination for thrill-seekers.
Admission is free, with go-kart tickets at $8 or an all-encompassing day pass for $32 (Slingshot admission sold separately).
Orlando Kart Center
Also just 15 minutes from The Florida Mall, Orlando Kart Center (OKC) aims to bring you the most authentic racing experience possible. It’s home to a 6/10-mile track and a longer, 8/10-mile track, with real curbing and bumps like you’d find on a professional track. The karts are gas-powered and can go up to 45 mph. If getting hands-on is more your speed, OKC offers bring-your-own kart races, as well as services selling parts, repairs or garage space for kart enthusiasts of every flavor.
Though there is no age requirement to be able to drive at OKC, you must be at least 60 inches (152cm) tall. Racing prices start at $26 for a single race, with package deals for multiple races. For racers bringing their own rides, the cost is $56 for the whole day.
