Podium Raceway - Exciting Activitiy on the Island of Oahu
Posted by Ali'i Beach Rentals | Wednesday, March 21, 2012

These aren't your run of the mill Go Karts! With acceleration of zero to 45mph in just over 3 seconds it's more than enough to take your breath away! I went for the first time a few weeks ago with a group of friends and had no idea how addicted I would get. Each car is timed, so that you're constantly trying to beat your previous laps or trying to beat your friends. My favorite is hitting the brakes around the corners and power sliding around other racers to take the lead. I also love the fact that you can sign into Facebook and have all your scores and laps posted to your wall in real time.

I would suggest going during the week to avoid the weekend crowds. We went on a Wednesday afternoon and there were only about 20 other people in the place besides our group. I've heard that you could wait for hours between races on the busiest days and evenings.

Make sure to check for discounts on Groupon, Tippr, or Living Social because that will save you a lot of $$. You can also Click Here to view specials on their official website. I think on Thursdays the winner of each race gets another race for free as well. Good incentive to shave a second or two off your lap times!

I would suggest bringing some food with you. Food isn't available at Podium Raceway and chances are you're gonna work up an appetite.

Take it from me... this is an experience you're not soon to forget! It is well worth the 30 minute drive from the Waikiki area! Be careful driving home though. If you're like me your foot will be a little heavier on the gas on the way back to town. Have fun and be safe!
