Ready, Set, Go! Go-Kart Raceway a perfect 9th Birthday Celebration!
Written by Karen Logan   

It’s party time! We ventured beyond The Woodlands to find something exciting and different for my second daughter’s 9th birthday last month. Go-Kart Raceway on W. Mount Houston Rd was a hit! In the past, we’ve enjoyed go-karts  indoors before, but there’s nothing like driving a fast cart in the cool, open air. We loved it! 


Okay, so maybe this isn’t the ideal area to hang out in with 4 kids, but we felt very safe here.

The venue, located off I-45 just two exits inside the Beltway, has surveillance cameras and responsive employees, and it seems to be very family friendly. For fun, there are regular go-karts, super (faster) karts, 2-seater karts, video games (including my favorite – Ms. Pacman!), game tables (ice hockey, pool, etc.), and games of skill (like Skee Ball, Whack-a-Mole, and other games that dispense tickets). The ticket redemption counter is CHOCK-FULL of goodies for all ages – everything from candies and bracelets to larger-value prizes like watches and stuffed animals.  Other venue features include a porch swing, several pay-per-minute massage chairs and vending machines for drinks and snacks.


What I LOVED about Go-Cart Raceway is the flexible packages they offer for groups. There a quite a few options, and as long as you have at least 5 drivers in your party, you can take advantage of a Group Party (advance reservations required), a budget-friendly package that saves you money on the cart rides and games, plus gives you access to two of their many indoor or outdoor party tables for a 2-hour period. The best part about these arrangements? You can bring in your own food and drinks! I love the flexibility of feeding  my guests whatever I feel like serving!

Know Before You Go:
  • To drive a kart alone, you must be at least 52”.
  • To ride as a passenger, you must be at least 36”. My 3-year-old and 7-year-old rode in karts with me and my mom, while the 9 and 11 year olds were able to go solo.
  • You must be 15 years or older to drive a super kart or to drive a passenger in a 2-seater kart.
Now that I have 2 pre-teens who appreciate a bit more excitement, this venue will be a likely go-to spot for random fun with friends. Hope you guys can check it out with your little ones! your social media marketing partner
