The Craziest Go Kart Track Ever


By now you know that Speed Raceway in Denver is closing its doors for a couple months, and re-opening in a new location, with the same exhilerating experience, just on a new track. While the old Speed Raceway track was fun and challenging for people of all ages, the excitement is building already to see how the new track design turns out. Over the past few months, the word is getting out in the greater Denver area about Speed Raceway's amazing group events and parties, with many local businesses coming out for teambuilding events, and people of all ages hitting the track for birthday, graduation, and bachelor parties.

Why Other Birthday Party Ideas in Denver Just Don’t Compare


When it comes to planning your child’s birthday parties, you’re very lucky to have so many unique and fun options to choose from.  Places like Chuck-E-Cheese’s and miniature golf are always fun, and amusement parks and house parties get rave reviews but nothing really compares to having a birthday party at Speed Raceway!  Below is a list of birthday party ideas in Denver and why we think they just don’t match up to go kart racing!

My First Trip to Speed Raceway!


This last week, I got my first chance to race at Speed Raceway. My colleagues and I had been planning a visit for a long time, and with the Fourth of July weekend approaching, we decided there was no better way to kick off the festivities than with some awesome go kart racing! If there's anything I love to celebrate in America, it's the need for speed. I had visited the Speed Raceway track before, but never had the chance to race! So I was very excited to see what all the hype was about.

Four Must Do’s When Planning Your Son’s Birthday Party


We all hold on to some trauma from when we were little. Maybe you took a really bad fall off a bike, and you were never able to feel quite comfortable again. Perhaps you were swimming in the ocean and got caught in a rip tide that pulled you very far out. Maybe you were teased when you had to give a class presentation and you started crying in front of everyone. (I will never forgive you for that, Brian Abney.) It doesn’t matter what the traumatic experience was because they all create painful memories that can be hard to move past.

Why Leave Birthday Parties Up To Chance?


It's almost time for another birthday party, and you've spent hours trying to ask your child what gifts they want, who should come, and most importantly, what they want to do. But kids can change their minds a lot, and so planning a birthday event can be a real rollercoaster! They may suddenly only want Star Wars toys, or think their best friend is "mean all the time!" With all these variables constantly changing, you don't have time to worry about the party plan, or have an issue with the venue. You need to plan a kids birthday party that can actually make things less stressful for you!

If you plan an outdoor event at a park, you'll be at the mercy of the elements. We've all had exciting weekend plans get ruined because of a sudden thunderstorm, so cancelling a birthday party or changing all your plans last minute sounds pretty unappealing. You could head to a family entertainment center and eat pizza sitting under heat lamps while watching the kids play on playground equipment of questionable cleanliness. Or you host a themed party at your house, which probably seems like a pretty good idea, until you spend hours cleaning up afterwards.


Three Reasons to Choose Indoor Electric Go Karts!


You've got lots of choices for summer entertainment, so what should you go with? Whether you're in school and enjoying summer vacation, or you're working full time and just need to get out of the house on the weekends and away from Netflix, you've got so many options for entertainment. Mountain biking, skydiving, paintball, go karts... these are just a few of the options right around me that I can pick from any given weekend. Even between those, there are different choices. Should I race some gas-powered, outdoor go karts, or opt for the indoor, electric go kart option? For me, the electric karts is a no-brainer. Why? Here's three reasons!

Head to Speed Raceway for Your Next Fraternity Event!


Fraternity events can get pretty messy sometimes. Having quite recently been in college and a part of one, I have seen some crazy stuff go down at poorly planned events. Lots of people think that throwing together an event at the last minute is the way to go, but that's how people get in trouble. Plan out an event and save your fraternity the hassle of throwing together something at the house last minute. So if you're looking for a great Denver college event, where's the best place?

Need An Adrenaline Fix Now That Winter Sports Are Over?


The winter months may be cold and dreary at times, but for someone who loves snowboarding and skiing, winter is the best time of all. Hitting the slopes for a day on the snow is worth waiting through the hot summer for every year. Nothing beats taking a day off from work or school just to drive out and get some runs in. But May is here, and that means spring is probably here to stay, bringing the winter sports season to a close. So what is an adrenaline fan supposed to do during the warm seasons?
