After months of preparation, a major go-kart racing course in Edison is now set to open before the winter holidays.
Supercharged Entertainment Edison plans to open the new facility on December 16, welcoming riders to experience an exciting course comparable to “Mario Kart.”
The course in Edison is at 987 US-1 South, adjacent to the TopGolf facility, and will include a number of other attractions including 19 ace hitting lanes, bionic bumper cars, a drop and twist tower, virtual reality experiences , and more than 140 arcade games on two floors.
The 131,000-square-foot space will also feature a burger and brews restaurant, which is located on the 16-acre complex. The full-service restaurant includes a sports bar with more than 30 beers on tap.
The company gave a first look at the upcoming go-kart course in a series of videos and photos on Instagram.
The multi-level, temperature-controlled course has 10 elevation changes and room for four-wide racing. There are two tracks that can be combined into a single, 80,000 square foot super track. Together, the course is about 28% larger than Supercharged Amusement’s existing facility in Wrentham, Massachusetts. Electric go-karts can reach speeds of 35-40 mph.
“Supercharged Entertainment Edison has something for everyone – couples, families, kids, groups and corporates,” said Stephen Sangermano, Edison’s director of facilities. “We’re excited to show off all of New Jersey and New York and Pennsylvania. All the fun and crazy fun our Edison location has to offer.
Go-kart course prices will be $29 for one race, $78 for a three-race bundle and $125 for a five-race bundle. According to the venue’s website, a 60-minute ride costs $28 per person.
Supercharged Entertainment also hosts go-kart leagues open to racers of all skill levels.

The opening of Supercharged Fun comes as plans are underway for another go-kart racing course in the former Kart building at the Berlin Shopping Center in Camden County. Earlier this year, the Raceway at Lucky Snake opened in the former Showboat Casino in Atlantic City.
