Mario Kart is one of the most popular and fun videogames ever made by Nintendo. Players ride around on Go-Karts trying to cross the finish line first and win the race.
The brand new Niagara Speedway opening in Spring 2018 on Clifton Hill in Niagara Falls will bring the Mario Kart game to life!
Development of the Niagara Speedway began with the demolition of the Comfort Inn Clifton Hill building, which opened up a 4-acre site for expansion. The first concrete for the futuristic race track was poured on June 7th, 2017.
Once complete the 1800 feet long race will be North America’s largest elevated Go-Kart track facility and the first of its kind in Canada.
Quick Facts about the Niagara Speedway:
- 6500 bolts
- 425,920 lbs of steel
- 1,620 Lineal Ft – Guard Rails
- 12,597 Individual Parts
- 1,375 Welded Assemblies

Eligible Niagara Speedway passengers will climb into the state-of-the-art F22 Double Go-Kart and strap-in for a safe ride around the track. These Go-Karts are built for speed, durability as well as safety.
Heavy-gauge steel is laser-cut to size, bent and welded to produce a strong, protective chassis of each Go-Kart.
The Niagara Speedway may feel like a rollercoaster at some points, you will drive on a road course for a portion of the track and then spiral upwards to about 40 feet.
Once at the top, you descend down a long hill and go into a hairpin turn! This will be a thrilling ride for everyone involved.
The Niagara Speedway will also feature a Game Zone, which will be affiliated with the Canadian Midway and will use the same tokens as the Canadian Midway. New games have been installed such as:
