It’s a me, Mario! Real life Mario Kart Racing coming to Perth in November!

You may have seen the Maricar craze taking over Japan, well now it’s our turn with Mushroom Racing.

Finally, all those hours spent playing Mario Kart when you were younger (or maybe you are still playing) have finally paid off.

Get set to race the streets of Perth with real-life Mario Kart Racing coming to Perth in November.

Mario Kart Racing Perth – What to expect?

While you won’t be driving the exact carts seen in the game – it will be more of a “themed go karting in dress-ups.”


You will get to pick your favourite character (obviously Mario or Yoshi) then drive courses dressed as them while collecting stars to win prizes – up to 20 laps.
