Le Mans Go-Karting

Home > Melbourne > Misc | Fun Things To Do
Published July 19th 2011
Looking for an adrenaline pumping way to end your day? Than look no further than Le Mans go-karting in Dandenong South. Whether you're a wannabe Schumacher, or a Sunday driver, you'll love this exhilarating chance to put your pedal to the metal.

With 3 different racing tracks that stretch over 23 acres, Le Mans has racing opportunities for expert racers, or beginners (like me!) With the tracks being able to accommodate a whopping 22 carts, this is a great option for a teen's birthday party. Also, with the venue being fully licensed, and being able to cater for over 200 people, it's a novel idea for a testosterone filled buck's night (with the bucks riding for free!)

Le Mans also caters for kids parties which start from $20 a head. Kids as young as 4-years-old can give this experience a red hot go (with parental consent). So if you've got a young kids birthday coming up, bake a cake and bring it along to the track, as you're bound to be hungry after shredding up the road.

The karts used on the track are considered the best in the go-kart racing world, with them reaching a thrilling 80km/h (100km/h if you upgrade to the gold karts!) However, there is no need to be worried about being injured on these high speed machines, as they are all fitted with completely safe role cages and seat belt harnesses.

Tackling the Le Mans tracks as a group can also save you money, with group packages starting from $62 per person ranging to $130 per person, depending how long you wish rip up the asphalt. However, in order to get a saving, it is essential to book ahead, with a minimum of 10 drivers for each booking. But with these packages including free use of BBQ facilities, and free membership to the Le Mans track, how could anyone say no? Not to mention that the 1st, 2nd and 3rd placers in the race will receive an ego boosting plastic trophy, so be sure to save a place on your mantle.

So what about something a little less high speed? Well Le Mans has you covered there, with their new laser tag arena open from 10am-late, 7 days a week. Laserzone is the new indoor double story laser tag centre that can cater to over 40 people. This arena is the first of its kind in the world and contains 4 towers, 4 bases, 8 ramps, mazes and 24ft ceilings. With a minimum age limit of 6 years old, this is exhilarating way to get the young kids to play! And don't worry; you don't have to be able to run a marathon to play laser tag. Even the athletically challenged can be champions at this game as it requires some degree of stealth.

Whilst it is a bit of a trip to get out to Dandenong South, it's well worth the drive down! So with fun activities for little kids and big kids alike, make the trip down to Le Mans go-karts. You won't regret it!
