Your helmet is on with the visor down. Your hands are gripping the steering wheel of a powerful electric kart. Your foot is oh-so-patiently resting on the pedal. Suddenly, the green flag flutters in front of you aaaaaaand you’re off! You’re zipping around the largest indoor multi-level karting track in the world. Are you on a faraway vacation? Nope. You haven’t even left southeastern Connecticut! Welcome to NASKART in Montville.
Since opening six months ago, NASKART has quickly become a welcome addition to the town. “So many of the area’s biggest attractions are concentrated in and around Mystic but we saw Montville as a land of opportunity for NASKART,” said owner Dan Fawcett. With Nature’s Art Village just a mile up the road, Fawcett and his team saw the potential for Montville to become a family fun destination comparable to Mystic. This vision seems to be heading closer to reality as locals and tourists alike have been enjoying all the thrills NASKART’s 110,000 square-foot facility has to offer.
NASKART’s General Manager, Cody Browning, has been amazed by the support from the community. “The town has been so helpful and we just love all our guests. It feels so great when you see a familiar face and can just welcome them with a group of new friends they are excited to introduce to our tracks and demonstrate their driving skill.”
With two huge multi-level tracks, no other indoor karting track in the region compares. The majority of karting tracks are flat, basic courses. NASKART’s tracks have raised platforms with a series of fun hills, dips and turns that make for a more exciting driving experience. For the ultimate ride, you have to check out NASKART on a Thursday night. Every Thursday, both tracks are combined to form the “SuperTrack,” a massive half-mile track that is four times longer than the average indoor karting track.
You would think with all those karts racing around, NASKART would be a noisy place but you won’t hear any engines roaring on this track! Every one of their American-made karts is 100% electric with zero emissions, which makes for a smooth and quiet ride.
To enjoy a drive, racers must be at least 58” tall and able to control their kart. All riders 18 and older must complete a waiver form and riders under 18 must have a parent or legal guardian complete a signed waiver for them. The waiver fee for all riders is $7.00 and is valid for one year. A 7-minute racing heat is $19.95 per person.
”NASKART is just the perfect family friendly destination that offers the ultimate one-stop-shop for entertainment”, said Browning. “Parents love that our facility is active fun and they can relax and have a drink while the kids play.”
If you have little ones who are too small to enjoy the track or if you’re just not in the mood to race, NASKART offers more than just karts. Upstairs, overlooking the race tracks, is an incredible 8,000 square-foot trampoline park. This place is a dream come true for kids and adults alike, who just want to jump to their heart’s content. More than just one big trampoline, NASKART’s trampoline park offers multi-angles, raised platforms, nets and built-in basketball hoops. Beat the heat outside and bring your best buds for an intense game of trampoline dodgeball or basketball in NASKART’s air-conditioned facility. The trampolines have no age or height requirements but all little jumpers must be able to jump unassisted and follow directions. Pricing is $8.00 per half hour or $14.00 per hour.
All that racing around the track and jumping for joy on the trampolines will no doubt make you work up an appetite. NASKART’s got you covered with their onsite Fuel Up Café, which offers a variety of appetizers, entrees and a kids menu. Enjoy burgers, wings, pizza and more. Guests who are 21 and older can celebrate their victory on the track with a pit stop at the onsite full service Sports Bar. Grab a beer or cocktail to cool down after heating up the track.
If you’re looking for a place to host a fun birthday party, unique bachelor party or awesome corporate outing, NASKART’s facility is available for party and event rentals. For more information, call 860-444-7700 ext. 111.
