Whether you grew up playing Mario Kart, Need for Speed or even Pole Position, you’ve probably wondered what it would feel like to be behind the wheel in an actual race. You’ll wonder no longer after a visit to RPM Raceway in Jersey City—where state-of-the-art, electric-powered go-karts can reach up to 50 mph.

RPM Raceway has been a go-to place for indoor go-karting in New Jersey since opening in 2017. Track layouts are constantly updated and improved—with plenty of hairpin turns to test drivers’ karting capabilities. Every Monday, RPM Raceway raises the stakes with Super G Mondays, when the two quarter-mile tracks are combined into one half-mile track for an entirely new challenge.
