There are several places in the Atlanta, Georgia, area that provide a place to host birthday parties. Some places go one step further and offer partygoers with a need for speed the opportunity to race go-karts. Many of these locations also feature arcade games and miniature golf.
Malibu Grand Prix Norcross
Malibu Grand Prix Norcross in Norcross, Georgia, provides guests the chance to drive hi-octane go-karts on a track that contains hairpin turns and thrilling curves. Go-karts are available for either $5.99 for five minutes or $14.99 for 15 minutes, as of 2011. Not only does Malibu Grand Prix Norcross have a go-kart track; it also has a half-mile track on which drivers can race custom-built Indy-style race cars. These cars are slightly bigger than the go-karts and cost $2.75 for one lap or $12 for 10 laps, as of 2011. Malibu Grand Prix Norcross also has miniature golf, bumper boats, batting cages and an arcade game room.
Andretti Indoor Karting and Games
Andretti Indoor Karting and Games is located on the north side of Atlanta in Roswell, Georgia. Its high-speed Super Karts track features chrome chassis go-karts with nine-horsepower Honda engines that can simulate speeds of up to 50 mph. Party packages are available for groups of 10 or more people, with prices ranging from $30 to $42 per person depending on the package. Andretti Indoor Karting and Games also has an arcade game room, rock wall, extreme rope course, bowling, basketball and pool tables.
Mountasia Marietta is northwest of Atlanta in Marietta, Georgia. The facility provides a hi-octane go-kart track similar to the one at Malibu Grand Prix Norcross, though it does not offer the Indy-style race car tracks. Prices for go-karts are $5.99 for one ride or $14.99 for three rides. Mountasia Marietta also offers miniature golf, bumper boats and an arcade game room. Party packages are available for eight or more people.
Dixieland Amusement Park
Dixieland Amusement Park is located south of Atlanta in Fayetteville, Georgia. Not only is it a place for parties, but it is also an amusement park with more than 20 rides to entertain partygoers. For the $16 admission charge, guests can race go-karts on two different tracks. Younger guests can drive on the Junior Track, and older racers can drive on the high-speed Dixie Race Way. Dixieland Amusement Park also offers a roller coaster, free-fall drop and miniature golf, among other attractions.
