This Rooftop Go-Kart Track Will Bring Out Your Inner Adrenaline Junkie
If you have an adrenaline rush you need to kick, do so in the clouds with some fast, fast go-karts
Kart Hauz is Penang's first ever rooftop go-kart track, so you can live out your Fast & Furious fantasies while sailing through open skies.
Opened in January 2022, the creators of Kart Hauz intend for their epic course to help nurture new motor racing talent, and encourage adventurous pursuits while assuring safety.
The track is 350 metres long, and has 11 varying curves and twists, to test your limits and challenge your endurance.
Three different sodikarts are available for the race: the adult kart, child kart, and the newest edition, the two-seater family kart
With 20 different karts that vary in design and layout, bring your kids for a spin around the track for a day of fun in the sun, or to stir up some nighttime antics!
While the go-karts run on a 270 cubic centimetre engine capacity, all of them operate between 40 to 50km/h.
If you just wanna come to watch your friends, head on to the viewing deck and get a front-row seat to the action
