Vroom Vroom Vroooooooooooooooom

There is this go karting track for kids above 3 right outside Planet Yumm at Besant Nagar beach. A short well laid and safe oval track separated by tyres. Well lit at all corners as you can see. So no problems doing it at night too. There are 2 bikes and a car all operated at the push of a button. They stop if the child accidentally bang against an obstruction which I assure you will not happen once they finish 3 rounds of guided driving.
The Bike ride costs Rs 30 for 3 rounds and the car Rs 40. Good value for money considering the fun the kids had. At first they were satisfied with 1 round each and had to be pushed for second. Soon they went out of control, grabbing whatever vehicle was available the moment they would be pulled off one. The first few times, the manager helped steer the kids on the track. Soon self appointed guide (hubby & one kid) would run alongwith the go-karter and Mamma would photograph them dilligently on the mobile camera. At one point Mamma was wondering where Tejas vanished after alighting from the car next to her and suddenly a red T shirt figure on a yellow bike appeared in the visor of her phone camera and she realized that Tejas had started the bike and vroomed off on his own.

Stingy Mamma had budgeted for not more than Rs 80 for 1 ride each. She ended up shelling out Rs 220 for 4 car rides and 2 bike rides.
And the next day we went out for shopping and Ojas asked- are we going for a drive?

I promise it is addictive if a child takes to it and also for the parents.

Looks like a lot of fun. Certainly much better than those overrated video game parlours that I hate to take Ansh to.

Agree that go karting is extremely addictive. I remember shedding loads of money in blore while our office gang went and later I dragged the hubby and spent loads more! Should take Ashu here. thanks for the info, Itchy.
