If you're looking for a thrill this winter in Illinois, then ice go-karting is something you should definitely check out.

Go-Karting Is Exciting Fun For The Whole Family

Ever since I had my first experience on a go-kart in the Wisconsin Dells, I've been a huge fan. Luckily, when I was growing up there was a track just a short bike ride from my house. To me, it doesn't matter if it's a family-friendly ride or high-speed racing, I enjoy it all.

Adding A New Twist To Go-Karting In Illinois

Just regular go-karting is great for me, but of course, when you start adding some new twists that's when the fun really begins including high-speed racing, drag racing, or a slick track to just name a couple. How about running them on ice? That sounds amazing.

According to nbcchicago.com,

Go Karting On Ice will return to the Firth Third Arena - Chicago Blackhawks Community Ice Rink this March, organizers announced this week.
