River Road – Go Karts in Louisiana
River Road is just north of New Orleans and is well worth the trip. This outdoor go kart venue is another great go kart racing experience.
What makes this place special are two things. One, is that you will be renting and racing real go karts. Two, they have plenty of options to race different types of go karts as well.
The track is relatively short which improves visibility and service in case of a crash. There is a fairly long straight part that leads into some fast “S” corners which make great passing zones.
The Go karts raced are 9 HP Dino Karts. They put 6 go karts out there at once so you get to actually race with your buddies.
Due to private parties, you will want to call in advance to make sure you can race before heading out there.
