You may already know that a real life Mario Kart experience is coming to NYC this fall, but until now very little was known about the event that is literally every child's (and adult's, let's be real) DREAM. Well, tickets for the 4 DAY ONLY go-karting event finally went on sale earlier this week. Here's what we know so far.
The event is actually called "The Mushroom Rally" and has already taken place in other cities around the world like Australia, UK, and Los Angeles! According to Secret NYC, the top three racers after each race will be awarded prizes for their #skills. But the top 10 racers with best lap times at the end of the event will compete against each other in an EPIC BATTLE definitely worthy of a 200cc engine class. The winner of this final race will then be qualified to compete against other cities' champions in Las Vegas at the end of the year. But don't worry if your racing skills aren't up to par with the world's best racers - the event will also have tons of games and activities for ticket holders to participate in.

Bronx, NYC - the exact location has not yet been released!
Tickets are $65 a pop and include a themed costume so you can fully immerse yourself into the Mario Kart experience. With a ticket you are automatically entitled to one ten minute race, and a second race if you win the first one. Your ticket also gains you entry to the event where, when you're not racing, you can play a multitude of themed games for up to two hours. By playing games, you can win stars that are redeemable for awesome prizes. Tickets can be purchased here. You better scoop them up quick, because there's VERY limited space! I mean - who wouldn't want to be part of this?
