I heard that there's indoor karting center called Speed Development coming to Hawaii and will be in Aiea. Anybody else heard?

never heard of it, but what should happen is we boycott the walgreens and buy the store from them! make it into a really cool one, that elevates and such. if its anything like longs, it would be an amazing store to do it in. just gotta repave the floor, and turn Pharmacy into the watch tower. there we go...

With the land cost and laws it would probably be tough to set one up. Fuel cost may make it a bit pricey too. Heck...we have trouble setting up a real track while other cities and multiple...

I was seriously thinking of opening an indoor slick kart track here, but the cost of rent is prohibitive. I even wrote a very good business proposal, but getting 100k for start up costs for a place that will probably only be open at night, be busy only during the weekend, and can only charge about $20 per person per race with 10 - 15 races a night makes for a very long break even point.
I miss the ones in socal, and I'd go to the one here if they open up. Slick karting FTW! HT GTG if it opens? Race for some drinks!

There is just simply not enough people in Oahu compared to the Greater Los Angeles Area.

In my perception, some entertainment related businesses which do not provide a valued service will fail here because everyone is trying to pull from the same "pie" of money. That pie is very small on Oahu.

Yup, exactly why I decided against it also... there isn't enough people here to make it truly profitable. It could always be a huge hit, but realistically, it would barely break-even.

so would I!!! it's a lot more fun than the bumper cars! heheheheh
.
seriously, it took a while for us to get a 'waterpark' too.
hopefully someone will be willing to take a chance to see if this will work out.

If the idio ever comes into big money... he'll make stuff like this happen... profit or not... we'll make it happen it's all about the fun!
well... as long as it doesn't dig a very deep hole every year... if it didn't and the other business ventures make up for it... Idio will keep it going. *vroom
too bad big money is out of reach for the moment.

Pole Position in Vegas is an indoor kart place. Expensive but fun as hell. I think they said it gets up to around 45mph. Ton of fun, with family and friends.

Hello Scott, I'd say you'd want to be centrally located in some place like Pearl City or close to Kapolei. Southern side of the island. I'll give you a ring.

your going need a lot of space to be profitable. running 2 or more tracks to keep things flowing through out the day. Also setting up leagues etc etc racing events. kart racing is a big thing on the mainland but it is also very dangerous this isnt Bumper cars like most people that dont know think it is. done right and safely it can be very profitable i say in this state because we lack the motorsport venues here like we all know. anything to go fast a lot of people will come

i think carting used to be popular back when we were auto-xing at barbar's point by the back entrance. right across the auto-x course i heard there was a cart course, it was pretty popular (at least noisy).

sone of the old speedtek (?) crew used to run carts also, they had some pretty cool stuff at their old shop.

never had the $$$ or the way to transport the carts, but it looked like something i'd probably have gotten into if i did.
