It looks like the town of Wallkill, New York, is getting a little excitement coming to them this year. The town of Wallkill is allowing the construction of a quarter-mile indoor karting track. This will open at the Galleria at Crystal Run in the fall.
The entertainment center will be headed up by the FasTrax Raceway Indoor Karting Center. The cars will run on electricity and go as fast as 50 miles per hour. In addition the race track will also feature an arcade with snacks, pool tables, video games and air hockey within their more than 20,000-square-foot center.
The mall plans to start construction this month on the raceway, FasTrax will start building in the summer, said Ron Paxson, the managing partner of the business.
The raceway will help the Galleria broaden its entertainment offerings beyond the 16-screen movie theatre, O’Connell said. “We wanted to bring a bit more entertainment to Orange County, instead of just the retail side of things.”
At the Galleria, the FasTrax raceway will feature 30 adult carts, and 10 junior carts. The regular price for a 14-lap adult race is $23, according to fastraxraceway.com. The races last seven to 10 minutes.
