World’s First Looping Go Kart Track Revealed

Have you ever had dreams about “what if a ride could do this…?” and just thought it was totally impossible to pull off. Well, today is your lucky day. MackManiac is an actual go-kart track that contains a real loop. And it’s pretty amazing.

Yes, this actually allows go-kart riders to power their own vehicle up and through an actual loop. In a conventional roller coaster, you’re not in control of how fast you go through the track. That has been pre-determined by the designers. In this case, you’ve got complete control of how fast or slow you go through the loop. And yes, if you don’t put enough pedal to the medal, you won’t make it through.

If you’re wondering who’s behind this, you probably already know who they are. Ever heard of the roller coaster restaurant? The place where your food comes to you via tiny cars that zing around the dining room on an elevated track? Yup, that same company has designed this looping go kart track.

Not only are loops possible with this system, but apparently they are working on corkscrews as well. A special safety system for the specialty cars has also been designed. Only one go kart can be in the looping elements at a time. Meaning if you don’t put enough acceleration into the loop and roll back to you’re starting point, you can’t crash into another car.
