Go-Karting in the Bay Area
It is quite an adrenaline rush to race around the track in an open-air go kart. I make a special point to whoop and holler to embarrass my children to the max.
Covid-19 precautions for go karting
Capacity will be limited, please practice safe social distancing. Face coverings are required in public areas. Please be respectful. Wash your hands!
