Fun City Go Karts is an entertainment complex, only 30 minutes from Melbourne's CBD. Offering fun for everyone, it has a fast 440m indoor go-kart track, which is one of Australia's largest and fastest. You can travel up to 20km/h on the drifting track, and up to 65km/h on the normal track.
A purpose-built drift track has been watered down to create sliding karting! On that one, you slide sideways around corners on a wet course. Drifting is a new form of driving taking the world by storm. It's burning rubber on a wet track, with extreme slideways action all the way!
It's not all about adrenalin racing, though. Have a look at the choice of activities available, spread out over a hectare. The venue is perfect for children's parties, hens' nights, bucks' nights, team-building activities and all sorts of get-togethers.
You can play:
- laser games in Darkzone Laser Wars
- pool and billiards on three different sizes of tables
- amusement machines
- nine-hole mini golf
- dodgem cars and mini go-karts
- on the jumping castle and adventure playground
- in Destination, an interactive shooting gallery
- in Skatepark
At the end of it all, you can enjoy a refreshing drink at Southern Star Saloon Bar.
The Melbourne suburb of Braybrook, 10 minutes from the CBD.
