More Info:

Kart racing or karting is a variant of open-wheel motorsport with small, open, four-wheeled vehicles called karts, go-karts, or gearbox/shifter karts depending on the design. They are usually raced on scaled-down circuits. Karting is commonly perceived as the stepping stone to the higher and more expensive ranks of motorsports.

Karts vary widely in speed and some (known as Superkarts) can reach speeds exceeding 260 kilometres per hour (160 mph), while go-karts intended for the general public in amusement parks may be limited to speeds of no more than 25 kilometres per hour (16 mph). A KF1 kart, with a 125 cc 2-stroke engine and an overall weight including the driver of 150 kilograms has a top speed of 140 kilometres per hour (87 mph). It takes a little more than 3 seconds to go from 0 to 60 mph with a 125 cc shifter kart (6 gears), with a top speed of 185 kilometres per hour (115 mph) on long circuits. Kart racing is available for just about any age with different classes. 5-7 year olds can enter in karts that top out at about 30 MPH. 7-11 year olds go a step up with karts reaching speeds of about 80 kilometres per hour (50 mph). 12-15 year olds are put in full sized karts with 100cc-125cc engines that will reach about 125 kilometres per hour (78 mph). The next classes up all have about the same top speed with different variations to cope with added weight for older people. A single geared, 125cc, 2 stroke kart will do 0-60 in about 4-5 seconds and pull 3-4 g's through the corners. Shifter karts (karts with multiple gears), accelerate much quicker, however, have worse handling going into the corners because of added weight, and worse weight balance, however, can quickly pull out of the corners with the added power. Shifter karts also have 4 brakes, instead of the normal 1, on the single speed karts. Lap times differ by about 2-5 seconds due to the shifter karts advantages.

Lakemont Park, located in Altoona, Pennsylvania, houses the world's oldest-surviving roller coaster, the Leap-The-Dips. The park opened in 1894 as a trolley park and became an amusement park in the summer of 1899. It is the 8th oldest in the United States. The park was owned by the Boyer Candy Company from May 23, 1986 until July 1, 1988, when it was called Boyertown USA.

Michigan's Adventure is a 250-acre (1.01 km2) amusement park in Muskegon County, Michigan, about halfway between Muskegon and Whitehall.
