Foxwoods Resort Casino Adding World-Class Karting Facilities
10 Oct, 2017
Foxwoods® Resort Casino announces the next step in its evolution as the Northeast’s premier full-service resort destination: a high-performance, European-style indoor karting center. The track, which will feature dramatic elevation changes and hairpin turns, is set to join the recently opened Foxwoods Thrill Tower and upcoming HighFlyer Zipline as another standout addition to Foxwoods’ impressive portfolio of adventure attractions.
Foxwoods teamed up with On Track Karting, a recognized leader in the karting industry, to offer guests a true motorsport feel on one of the longest and fastest indoor kart runs ever constructed. The top-of-the-line, multi-level track will feature gas-powered, nine-horsepower karts that give drivers the power and control necessary for the ultimate high-speed rush.
“Our goal is to continue to provide more fun and exciting reasons for guests to visit Foxwoods,” said Felix Rappaport, President and CEO of Foxwoods Resort Casino. “As a leader in the entertainment industry, this is the next logical step as we continue to evolve into the premier resort destination in North America.”
Foxwoods, together with racing enthusiast and star of Fast N’ Loud Richard Rawlings, made the announcement in front of a packed crowd at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway in advance of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series’ ISM Connect 300. Rawlings also unveiled a kart emblazoned with his Gas Monkey Garage logo that he promises to take back to his famed shop, where he will work his magic to turn it into the fastest kart on the track.
Construction began in late September and the karting center is scheduled to open in early 2018. To get your engine started, visit Foxwoods.com/karting for more information.
