The following go-kart tracks in Minnesota and Wisconsin will have you reliving your glory days as well as creating new ones.

Big Thrill Factory (Minnesota)

While the Oakdale location of the Big Thrill Factory’s indoor track may be tight, allowing only a few skilled or beginner drivers to test their racing expertise at once, you will still be able to achieve supersonic speeds as you race your way to the top spot. Drivers must be 48 inches tall to get behind the wheel of a go-kart.
