A typical go cart is like a miniature vehicle consisting of a frame with an engine, seat, and steering wheel, covered with a fiberglass body. Go carts are lightweight and very easy to drive, making them suitable for all ages. Much like cars, go carts come in a wide variety of models, and are capable of running anywhere from 5 to 18 mph regularily. They can of course go faster, but any faster for public go carting is getting dangerous. go carts have been used as training for racing, are in fact raced themselves, and are used for purely fun.
There are a number of amusement parks and entertainment venues that offer go cart rides. Most go cart tracks have go carts suitable for both grown-up s and children, and many offer two-seater go carts that allow for parents and children to enjoy riding together. There are a wide variety of go carts to choose from. Depending on where you plan on riding the go cart, you can choose from yard go carts, which are best suited for paved tracks and light recreational use, or trail go carts, which are more rugged and capable of going off-road. Some of the most popular go cart models include the two-seater Super Deuce Go Kart, the single-seat Bandit youth go cart, and the grown-up -size EZ Rider Go Kart, all from Manco.
Go carts are among the safest entertainment rides around. Slow speeds, sturdy frames, and easy maneuverability make go carts fun and safe for everyone. In the event that something goes wrong, go-cart track operators can remotely turn the engine off, thereby stopping the go-cart immediately. If you have your own go cart, you can get the same remote device to attach to your engine for added safety. Go carts run on an enclosed track so as to keep the fun in a safe area, and also to form a track. The barriers are often tires, so if they are hit, you bounce safely off.
