Real-life Mario Kart is coming to Sydney and Melbourne

Posted on February 5, 2018

If you have ever wanted to live out the dream of partaking in a real-life game of Mario Kart (who hasn’t?) then it’s time to get excited. Mushroom Racing is bringing that dream alive at an undisclosed date within 2018 to both Melbourne and Sydney.

Whilst in Japan you can actually dress up in costume, jump in your go-kart and drive down the streets of Tokyo, the version of real-life Mario Kart heading to Australia is presumably a little bit more restrictive and more conscious of road safety. Nevertheless, fantasies are soon to be fulfilled and I know for a fact I intend to smuggle in banana peels if I ever get an opportunity to join in on the fun.

There’s still a few details that haven’t yet been disclosed, but if you want to get in on the action then make sure you head to the Mushroom Racing website where you can sign up.
