Things to do for Active Kids
Pole Position Raceway Buffalo
Where are we going today?
Vroom Vroom - start those engines because it's time to head to Pole Position Raceway, where YOU can be that champion racing car driver!
Pole Position Raceway is located in Galleria Mall, and offers casual racing for the family, as well as tournament racing for those who want to really get into it!
The track is indoors, which means no matter what that New York State weather is doing, you can still enjoy it!
Kids - get those helmet ready, and put those hands on the wheel. Can you feel the crowds cheering from the stands? Can you see that chequered flag you're going to reach? Put that foot on the pedal and.....GO!
Now it's just you and the electric karts on the slick track, where beginners and masters alike will find the challenge in the course.
For adults, Pole Position Raceway offers karts that can go up to speeds of 45mph, and really takes your breath away as you go round those corners! Those wanting a more gentle experience, the Youth Race karts go up to 35mph, and for those little ones between 48" and 58" there are the Junior Racers which go up to 25mph, so there really is something for all!
The Youth and Junior racers are perfect for those without their licence, so as long as you're over 48" and have a keen sense of adventure and are ready for some thrills, it just leaves one thing left....
On your marks....get set....and GO!

Why not give them a call about bringing the students for a little end of year fun! They would love to have you! They even have summer camps. .
There is a cafe where you can pick up snacks and drinks.
It's a good idea to take a small bag with bottled water and healthy snacks there so you can keep that energy up!.
Any Top Tips?
Enclosed footwear must be worn. Kids need to be at least 6 years old and 48".
Need a little extra help?
Speak to staff if you have any disabilities you want to speak to them about.
Spectators are free entry, but you won't be sitting on the sidelines for long when you see how fun it is!.

Solid place with a good system to keep waiting down to a minimum. As the current race is on it's final laps the next group is called up and prepped. Drivers are seated in their karts and strapped in. As soon as the current race is over the next can start. Some of the karts are a little beat up and could use some work but all in all a great experience. They measure rankings by your best lap time. There is no indication of max speed or average speed.

We came with a group of 9 or so and it was fun. However, the staff doesn't really do too great of a job flagging down people who ram into your car on multiple occasions purposely. They did a great job flagging down hazards though. It was very over priced for what it was. $25 for a race that lasts about 7-10 minutes.

The Go Karts are fast and well maintained. The attendants make sure no one is waiting long and quickly put you in the track. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience here and plan on going again.
