A Real Life Mario Kart Racing Course Is Coming To Texas And It’s Just As Awesome As It Sounds

Kids today will never understand the intense rivalry of Mario Kart. We were loyal to one character and one alone, determined to send our opponents reeling with banana peels and slow-motion spells. And oh, how sweet were those question mark boxes that gave us power ups like temporary invincibility? If childhood memories are flooding your mind right about now, you won’t want to miss this epic event coming to Texas in just a few months. It’s a real-life version of the nostalgic Nintendo game, putting a nostalgic twist on go-karting.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
