You’ll feel the rush of adrenaline as soon as the kart zooms off the starting line and the thrills keep coming as you roller coaster up, down and around the racetrack.
Located in the Clifton Hill area of Niagara Falls, there is parking available across the street from the speedway.

More about Niagara Speedway
The Niagara Speedway boasts over 600 metres of racing track that, at its highest, stands almost 13 metres tall. Built on 300 tons of steel, the track’s unique design features hairpin turns, straightaways, a two-tiered ramp and a four-story spiral climb.
You’ll feel like you’re flying as you floor the gas pedal of your colorful go-kart for speeds up to 32 km per hour. Up to 36 drivers can race simultaneously, and each race lasts roughly five minutes.
Safety is a high priority at the Niagara Speedway, so every go-kart is fitted with advanced lighting systems, including headlights, taillights, brake lights and ground lights. To carry a passenger, drivers must be at least 18 years old or the parent or legal guardian of the passenger. There is no age requirement for drivers that meet height restrictions. Read more about safety requirements, including driver and rider height restrictions. And for added safety, the Niagara Speedway only operates in spring, summer and fall.
Opened in 2018, the Niagara Speedway is one of the many crowd pleasing attractions along Clifton Hill’s ‘Street of Fun’. Take a break in between races and visit the Niagara Speedway Game Zone on the grounds, which features both new and beloved arcade games. Fuel up at a variety of restaurants within a very short walking distance including Boston Pizza and Kelsey’s Restaurant.
