Resort Partners with On Track Karting to Create World-Class Indoor
MASHANTUCKET, Conn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#25YearsProud–Today, Foxwoods®
Resort Casino announced 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 earlier today 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 is set to begin in late September and the karting center is
scheduled to open in early 2018. To get your engine started, visit Foxwoods.com/karting
