Since it started in late 2019, eKart's MagiKart event in Laval's Place Bell been giving Montrealers a chance to be a big kid again. After a long hiatus, the Mario Kart-themed icy racetrack is back up and running with exclusive events on August 22 and 29, from 2pm to 9pm each day.

Dress up as your favourite Mario Kart character, hop in an electric go-kart and drift around the racetrack as you hurl bananas, turtle shells and question mark blocks at each other at (reasonably) high speeds.

When we're saying is gives Montrealers a chance to be a kid again, we're not joking: No actual children are allowed to race, and you need to be at least five feet tall (1.5 metres) to ride. 10-minute races go for $25 plus taxes, allowing up to four people to race at one time, so bring your friends to maximize the fun.
