You've maintained your composure behind the commuting wheel long enough, now's your chance of steering and speed at Speed Zone’s four go-kart tracks. Take the lead in the Top Eliminator Dragster, a 300-horsepower NHRA dragster ($15 for three races), and then carhop to the Grand Prix, a track modeled after the Formula 1 and Indy Car racing circuits ($2 per lap). There's also the classic Slick Trax for drift-style racing on finely polished concrete and ultimate Turbo Track—faster than Slick Trax and open to up to twenty drivers ($7 for five-minute session). Happy hour specials include well drinks ($4) and import brews ($4), but you might want to sober up (or at least act like it) before heading back to the tracks. Better yet, keep the competition going at Speedway Golf’s two 18-hole miniature golf courses, Strike Zone’s mini bowling alley and the Electric Alley’s arcade of over 100 video games.
